To say the least, Flaviu Cernescu has interesting tastes in romantic campsites. The thrill seeking urban explorer and his girlfriend pitched a tent in the dark and spent the night on top of a 833ft tall chimney. Don’t have a lock on the location but I’m going to hazard a guess that it is not America.

Could you convince your SO to join you for a little camping trip like this?

Judging by his instagram account, he and his lady go everywhere together: screen-shot-2017-01-16-at-12-57-53-pm screen-shot-2017-01-16-at-12-58-47-pm screen-shot-2017-01-16-at-12-58-33-pm screen-shot-2017-01-16-at-12-57-18-pm screen-shot-2017-01-16-at-12-57-35-pm screen-shot-2017-01-16-at-12-57-43-pm

Fear of heights, also known as acrophobia, is a prevalent and often debilitating phobia that affects countless individuals worldwide. This irrational dread of elevated places transcends mere nervousness; it can manifest as a paralyzing terror, even in situations where the height is not immediately life-threatening.

The fear of heights typically stems from a combination of psychological and evolutionary factors. Our ancestors who were cautious around heights were more likely to survive, as falling from great heights could result in severe injuries or death. This survival instinct still resides within our subconscious, triggering anxiety when we find ourselves in high places.

Symptoms of acrophobia vary in intensity, from mild unease to full-blown panic attacks. Vertigo, rapid heartbeat, trembling, and nausea are common physical manifestations of this fear. It can profoundly restrict one’s daily life, preventing them from enjoying breathtaking views or pursuing activities like hiking or rock climbing.

Overcoming acrophobia often requires gradual exposure therapy, where individuals confront their fear in controlled environments with the guidance of a therapist. Cognitive-behavioral techniques can also help reframe negative thought patterns associated with heights.

Fear of heights may be daunting, but with appropriate treatment and support, many individuals can learn to manage their anxiety and regain the freedom to explore elevated spaces without overwhelming fear.
