What is/was your biggest fear while traveling abroad?Honestly, my biggest fear would be rape and/or other versions of sexual harassment as I accept other forms of risk, but for some reason can't accept that. I understand that extreme sports puts me at risk for injury/death, but I cannot understand or tolerate entitlement to my person.
A way this can be avoided is to dress modestly and stay sober, but honestly - I have found that it doesn't always help. Men come on very strongly to me, especially from other cultures and no matter how polite or assertive I am, there are times where I am honestly scared of what may happen.
