Detailed dream interpretation...

If you happen to dream of backpacking, it implies that you are well equipped to face any challenge that comes your way in life. It has enabled you to achieve so much in life because you have managed to succeed where most people have been unable to. It is important that, if you are a true friend, you let your friends know about your secret of survival so that they can also be able to survive. You don’t need to be mean; share all that is needed to enable one to go through all sorts of challenges and remain successful, just like you. If you do so, you will be able to retain your friends and even earn more friends to your circle which will come in handy when you will one day, need help in life.


The hostel itself is associated with risk and also possible security in our waking life. As a hostel is full of people we do not know it indicates that you may have some inner loneliness. If you see yourself leaving the hostel it indicates that you are going to improve relationships around you.

A dream where you see a friend or a relative backpacking suggests that you are struggling with a situation in life. To visit a foreign country in your dream of backpacking indicates that the grass is not always greener! To plan a backpacking trip in the dream state suggests that you need to think about a solution to a problem.  You don’t need to go to just anyone in order to get help all you need to do is, approach your trustworthy friends and a solution will be availed to you. Share with them what is disturbing you without hiding anything from them and they will be in a position to help you. Why suffer in silence when you are surrounded by friends who are well equipped to assist you. Don’t let people wear you down.

A dream where a stranger has been backpacking implies that you are having a tough life because you are not well equipped to handle tough situations. There is nobody around who can assist you. You will have to look for a stranger or travel from your own comfort zone, in order to get help. When you are helped by a stranger, make sure that you appreciate them and let them know that you value them. Use what you have learned to share with others - so that, they too can become more equipped in life. To stay in a hostel in your dream suggests other people are going to be loyal.
