A slideshow of traveling phobias

Anyone can have phobias, from normal people like me and you to famous rock stars, presidents and also travelers. This last group is a rather interesting one because you’d think that people who travel around would get used to seeing many (weird) things and experience countless fearsome situations that should perhaps make them immune for some of  the ‘simple phobias’ out there.

However, the BBC has shown us that travelers can have some of the most exotic and intriguing phobias of us all. Below you can find a small photo gallery that portrays some of the most bizarre traveling phobias out there, with many thanks to BBC Travel for providing the actual pictures and relevant phobias.
