Traveling (Elements of Dreams) #AtoZChallenge

       Traveling dreams for me are of a highly personal nature that many readers might not share in the same way as I do.   Since I spent many years touring with a theater group, traveling for me represents essentially a way of life as well as part of a work environment.  Traveling in dreams for me is normally a relatively positive circumstance in which I feel comfortable for the most part.

        The part where travel in dreams might find a common ground between me and others for whom travel might tend to be a more special experience is the feeling of being lost or being late.  In my travel dreams I frequently find myself behind schedule which can introduce an element of stress into the dream.  Add to that the sense of being lost and the dream can become highly disorienting and sometimes rather upsetting.

         In some of these travel dreams I will find myself without my vehicle for one reason or another and I will be on foot.  Typically I am not alone, but with another person or a group of people.  As we travel, whether it be by vehicle or on foot, I will often get side-tracked by other events or situations and my original destination becomes forgotten or determined to be a lost cause.

        There are also travel dreams that might involve car trouble, accidents, or external threats that hinder my ability to continue my journey.  These situations are likely to be more relatable to those of you who are not frequent travelers.  In your case you might be dreaming about trying to get to work or some other destination that is important to you.

         Do you dream about travel?   Where are you usually going when you dream about trying to get somewhere?   What typically hinders you from reaching your dream destinations?


  1. I have travel dreams frequently. Just the other night i had a mish-mash of Vancouver and Victoria which was kinda cool. I love dreaming about Canada and Washington. And sometimes I have dreams that are a total mashup of different places - a street in SF with a couple buildings from Victoria and my dorm from Boston.

    1. I'm fascinated by cities in dreams. A lot of places in my dreams are blends of different places.

  2. In my travel dreams, I am searching for my car or having to stay in a rat infesting hotel or trying to find my husband. All stress dreams.

    1. Kind of similar to many of my dreams. I seem to end up on foot a lot or riding in some other vehicle. I don't recall ever dealing with dream rats or at least not in a menacing way.


  3. Thanks Arlee ... I get lost in unfamiliar places. My travel seems to be walking ... I often find my car missing, a huge shock in a dream which wakes me up.
