    I don't fear the flying part but I'm getting very weary of the hassle of flying...stresses me out...maybe thats why Ive been avoiding some trips lately.

    I am not claustrophobic to the extent that some people are, but I don't like closed spaces. I can't even watch movies where people are trapped in narrow caves or in a box underground. Even when they're not trapped, it's hard to watch someone crawling through a tight space underground.

    I have those feelings when I watch a movie where people are trapped underwater for some reason and oxygen is running out.

    Oh yeah, those underwater caves are unreal. It's hard to imagine someone doing that.

    When my oldest daughter was about 7 years old I took her on vacation and one of the places we went to was Ruby Falls which has underground caverns with stalagmites, etc. We had to ride an elevator deep down into the ground and then the Guide took us all through the caverns which were beautiful but I have to admit it was kind of scary knowing how far underground we were. :)

    I have no claustrophobia (I used to some spelunking but not underwater). Crawling through an 18" by 30" space that had a stream running through it was unpleasant for me but not scary. I get that same vicarious shiver that you do when I watch a movie that has climbers doing an overhang. A little acrophobia, I guess.
