What is the strangest dream you have ever had?
I usually don’t remember dreams but there was this one dream I saw and I still remember.. I was in a plane and we were heading back from Egypt (It looked like that, it was so brown! Had a lot of dust and I saw pyramids and all).. the back of the plane was a glass wall and that’s how I know it was Egypt and after a about two bus halts (yeah bus halts. The plane was kinda flying kinda going on a normal empty road with bus halts) We came across this land full of color like Hawaii mixed with Unawatuna. It had Coconut trees and a lovely beach and that typical Hawaii outlook.. and we get off there and go to a hotel which looked very Italian like to me. It was all marble tiled and had lovely flowers (basically very very beautiful) and I saw myself going into the room & yeah that’s all I remember.
