Hey guys; I'm 18 years old I've just returned from my first solo big trip through Western Europe and Northern Africa; it lasted 10 months and I spent them working around Europe and backpacking through Tunisia, Morocco and the likes.
Since I've been back (4 weeks now) I am trying to adjust back into my normal life, but keep having these vivid dreams, wether I sleep at night or a nap in the arvo, in which I have 'near misses' and 'close calls' like all those I experienced on the trip. Has anyone experienced this sort of thing on return?

I went to Rio De Janeiro in 1990 and 1992 and I still have weird dreams about it. Probably one every couple of months.

I think I have issues that, subconsciously, still remain unresolved.

I am sure it's all about the outfits on Copacobana

That's it! Every time I floss my teeth with a thin piece of string, I keep getting visions of girls in similarly thin bikinis!

Thought it was just me! Just returned from south america, have been having really full on dreams every night. Got shot it one of them whilst donating computers to a school... kinda freaked me out! hope it goes away, as entertaining as they are- some would make great movies-, its really screwing with my sleep.
