Travel Dreams, Who has them?

Scroll down to content

Does anybody here ever have travel dreams? I don’t mean travel dreams in the sense of “aspirations and hopes” type dreams. I figure anyone who follows a travel blog probably has those. I know I sure do. No, I am talking about actual  travel dreams, the kind you have when you sleep. I get them a lot, especially lately. The odd part is most generally they are in places I haven’t been to (at least yet). And they are so vivid, I know it’s perhaps due to the fact that I am a voracious reader of travel books and an avid follower of travel programs on You-tube. But I also meet “people’ in these dreams and we carry on fully developed conversations. Is this just me??

For example, last night I dreamed I was in Nepal (somewhere I haven’t been to yet) and was on a bus tour and we stopped in this small town for a break. I went into a cafe there and met a girl working behind the counter. She told me about her village and that she was going to school and she gave me a rice dish and I could intensely taste the spices.  She and I talked for a few moments and then my morning alarm rang. I actually needed to lay in bed for a minute while my brain had to convince me that: “No, I hadn’t actually visited Nepal and yes, the  conversation no matter how real seeming,  was just in my mind.” It definitely made me melancholy for a moment. So I would love to know have any of you experienced anything like this?  If so, tell me about it in the comments. I don’t know if it is just me.

  1. People who don’t love to travel can’t understand why I’m not happy right now. Feel like what little bit of my life is left is put on hold with Covid. Good thing when I get out of this I’ll be old enough for SS, so more money to travel
