Claustrophobia affects tens of thousands of people in the UK alone. It can cause many problems within your life, especially when it comes to flying. As part of BlogVember, we thought it would be interesting to explore this and speak to the people it affects everyday.

Claustrophobia is the fear of being enclosed or shut in a small space and not being able to get out. Sufferers are often looking for the nearest exit and will sometimes avoid busy and crowded places.This feeling can grow from a past experience and can affect people’s lives daily for many years. Sufferers can experience claustrophobia in cubicles, small rooms and crowds and often these feelings are increased when on a plane.

The land of eternal spring – more commonly known as Tenerife, is the largest of the seven Canary Islands and has pleasant weather all year round; one of the many reasons why so many people flock to the island each year! I visited the Island for the first time back in June and had a truly amazing experience. I was shocked however to learn that it was only recently the Island had undergone a massive transformation and that not so long ago, Tenerife was associated with corruption and debauchery. It is clear to see that the island has come a long way since then and today it is home to some of the most picturesque beaches, luxurious hotels, jaw dropping landscapes and world class attractions; not to mention its fantastic nightlife.

Destinations Show

On a bitterly cold Friday we headed up to the London Olympia to attend Destinations, a holiday and travel show in association with The Times. Unfortunately, I was not there to book a holiday, as exciting at that would be, but there on a press pass to get ideas about what’s happening in travel right now and thoughts for future content. We were also hoping to chat to some official tourist boards – they often have local people there representing the country which is alway fascinating.

We arrived pretty early and it was still quite empty with lots of people still setting up their stands, so we took advantage of this and scoped out the show. It was divided loosely by region and then a whole section was dedicated to adventure and outdoor travel, so there was a lot to take in. Read More
