What does it mean when you dream about travel?

There are many possible meanings of travel dreams, including freeing oneself of obstacles and restrictive circumstances. Dreaming about a journey can be about our life journey, so how we feel about our dream journey can reflect how we feel about our lives. A dream journey can also symbolize something less comprehensive, such as some specific move we have made in our lives. (See also Voyage).

Many people dream of traveling in planes, cars, trains, or motor bikes. Traveling seems to be one of the most common dream themes. It is representative of our journey through life. These dreams could represent your current movement toward goals or passage through life. Difficult traveling conditions such as a dark road, a bad storm, or an accident in a car or other vehicle may be symbolic of the difficulties that we experience in our daily journey through life. Other times, dreaming about traveling to a fun place and having a great time could be a form of compensation or wish-fulfillment. This type of a dream can be an escape from our daily life and form of transcendence into a beautiful dream world. If you are constantly having dreams about traveling, take a closer look at the current situations in your life. Are things going well, or are they more difficult than you would like them to be? Are your dreams a form of escapism and entertainment, or are they reassuring you that life is an adventure and you must keep moving forward?
