Dream Locations

There are some locatons that exist within my dreams that I return to every so often. Sometimes only days apart, sometimes years apart.

Some of these locations are very mundane and others are incredibly fantastical or spiritual.

One of my regular 'dream' haunts is a pub in the countryside. The pub is on the main street in the village and the village at various points has had both bus and train links into London. I've visited this pub three of four times in the last year when I went there last night I found that half the pub was cordoned off for refurbishment. Large white chipboard planks had been erected partway up the bar and blocked off most of the lounge area. Thus I spent the night at the bar with mooncadet drinking and chatting but unable to play pool.

Does anyone else have reoccurring locations in their dreams?

Has anyone ever experienced one of those locations actually undergoing refurbishment? I have no idea what it all means but I look forward to my next visit to see what has changed!

Ignore the guy with the pumpkin head. And don't bum a cigar off him either :)

I do sometimes go back to places I used to be IRL, like my mum's house when I was about 7 or 8, the old secondary school, but nothing like your 'inn at the world's end'.

In dreams...
Yeah I do... but in this place I am a different me. It is not a nice place and I am not a nice person. Oddly enough going there and being that person not distress me at all.

Haven't been there for a while.

I did when I was a teen, although with hindsight I think it was a result of too much CS Lewis. It was this great big palace where time flowed differently and I was king, and I got there by stepping through a big crystal. Never really did much when I was there mind you, but I went there in my dreams for many years.

I have many different recurring locations. They change a little but not dramatically.

Yes, I have recurring dream locations that don't exist in real life. I haven't encountered any of them undergoing refurbishment yet though.

One recurring dream location I have is a very large Victorian Underground station, with many long and twisting tunnels and staircases connecting all the Underground platforms. Its quite a cool place and I enjoy visiting it in my dreams.

I have a grove that I used to meet my wife in - we still visit from time to time, and its hasnt changed at all. Whats good for us is we both experienced it, and described it the same.

Whether we construct them each time, or leave them out there, I beleive the dreamspace can keep places like this.

My dream Victorian Underground station is often located in a weird version of Dream London that I've visited many times. Nothing like the real London but there are certain streets and parks that reoccur in these dreams. The Underground station is the place I most visit but I do often walk the streets of my Dream London. It has a vaguely Victorian feel to it in architecture.

yes. I have an alternate city -possibly London with various places and routes through it that are familiar. Often with train station and underground , plus tall buldings with lifts (gladd chrome type) and a set of steps and a square. PLus a Victorian dounble fronted house with a vestibule and attics... Plus a large old barn tyo building with holes in the walls leading into spaces between the walls.. this is always on a stste of being repaired (eg floors being replaced) its large cavernous but dry with LOTS and LOTs of potential!

Oh! and there is a series of houses I tend to visit - lots of artists around -- somehow my ex-husband lives there with his new wife - bah!
