    Eurostar Phobia

    Hi all,

    I have a travel phobia. Used to be able to fly by plane, boat & train.

    Had a panic attack on the plane and now cant do either.

    I really want to go to Paris by Eurostar but am well afraid of the tunnel.

    Is it safe? Will it cave in? Will my train stall and ill be stuck there etc etc....

    Anyone else have this and how do i get past it? How do I challenge myself and make myself do this!!

    Personally you would never get me on that thing lol cos I hate tunnels, hate the dark and hate trains!

    It is safe, it won't cave in. The train may stall yes as they had problems with snow recently and it did then.

    If you really want to do it then you will and I wish you good luck with it.

    hi

    i went on eurostar about 6 months ago. i was nervous but i was fine.

    you are only in the tunnel about 20 mins and it seemed to go very quick.

    I prefered that journey to the london underground!
