Dreaming of a road or traveling on a road in a dream is a direct sign about what is going on in your life right now. The road needs to be reviewed. Was it windy? Was it straight? Was you driving along the road or walking? Think about the kind of road, as well as the direction you are going in your dream. A road in ones dream has a direct correlation to how you are feeling in the waking world and can represent the different issues that we face in life. There are many different dream meanings such as: To break down in a car on a road means that people are going to ask your advice. To go on a road vacation means that you are trying to escape from something in life. Walking a long distance means that you are heading in a positive direction.
