Perhaps the most common of all traveling dream is the one in which you miss your plane, boat or train. No matter how frustrating this dream is, it is actually trying to help you get what you want. Look closely at what you should have done in the dream to make your connection; if there is clearly something you could have done differently to ensure you were on time, your dream is encouraging a shift of emphasis, understanding or action in waking life.
Another common dream is taking the wrong bus, train or plane.
This dream is particularly common to people who have problems making decisions in life because they are worried about what other people think. Your dreaming mind is urging you to correct this tendency by focusing on what you think is right. Yet another common dream involves being on board a boat, ship or plane and the person in charge becomes unable to pilot or steer. You are suddenly called upon to steer.

The emotional qualities of the traveling can provide a good snapshot of how your unconscious is responding to your current life path and the movement inherent on your journey.
The mode of travel will reveal issues around the way your life is supporting the desires you have.
The effectiveness of your vehicle and the control you are able to exert over your direction may be a reflection of how these themes are playing out in your waking life.
The obstacles that present themselves are to be considered as a barometer for challenges you are facing that may be impeding your progress. Being stuck or unable to control where you are going might connect to some element of your life that is stagnant.
The speed of travel is important to determine how fast an area of life is moving.
A train might indicate things speeding out of control, whereas a cruise ship could feel impossibly slow. Very often, only a small part of a journey is what appears in a dream.
