My Reoccurring Dream

I’m no psychologist, as much as I’d like to think I am (and sometimes I do), but I’m pretty sure my warped OCD ridden, puerile mind can actually work this one out.

I keep having a reoccurring dream that for some reason I have to fly back to England. I must have had this around 4 times now. One time it has been because I had to work for two more days and then I was going to fly back out here again and last night’s was that Ian had run out of money and we flew back to Loughborough and had to wait for him to earn some money so we could fly back out (even though that would make no sense as it would cost a load to fly back to England and back out here again).

My reckoning to this dream is a fear that something is going to mean/make me have to go back even though I really don’t want to. I am imagining it is a hard concept for my mind to grasp that this is a long term thing as it is so used to being in that part of the world, the part it considers to be the norm, or even what it perceives to be home, and is perhaps struggling with this.

At no point in these dreams have I felt a happy sensation to have arrived back and there is a feeling driving me within the dream to get back out travelling again. Whether this is due to the short span of time I have been here and the knowledge there is so much to do, or whether it is a realisation that even though I was aware I was unhappy with my life the way it was back home, lets say unfulfilled and monotonous, I was in fact a lot more unhappy than I had cared to investigate.

Boom, some inner psychological analysis of myself there. Enjoy, criticise or even laugh at, do what you want with it.


Love Scotty x

About Scotty

Neurotically moaning my way around the world I aim to experience as much as I can and escape traditional British living. Travelling with my best friend Thomo (I hate him really), I hope to share my experiences with you, while constantly ripping on Ian and belittling myself. Should make for some fun times. (Circa 2012)Now older, fatter & somewhat wiser, I find myself sucked back into the 9-5 grind. With new responsibilities, but a never dwindling love for travel, I strive to regain the life I wanted, with my son and partner in toe...........is it possible to get the prefect mix? We shall see. (April 2017)

Ho Chi Minh city has lots to offer so walking around the city was good …


  1. Anyways look forward to the Phi Phi blog! if you could make sure you include the following so I can come fully prepared that would be lovely!

    # Locations and ratings of all hotels/hostels/beach huts
    # Pubs including cost of a pint and how friendly the bar staff are (please include Irish pubs and the quality if its Guinness!! its my goal to drink in a Irish pub in every place I visit!!)
    # Restaurants with average prices and food quality
    # Hairdressers, I need to figure out a way to keep my red hair from fading in the sea…. yep although hard to believe my hair is dyed!!
    # Places that serve tea!! pints of tea to be exact! with milk!
    # Where turtles hang out!

    That should cover all I need to know for now! Thanks for your kind assistance.

    hehe sounds like you’re enjoying it!

    🙂 Laters Scotty

    • Howdy Benson, hope you are enjoying the cracking British weather i her you are having. Besides writing blogs we have finally found a little bit (very little) to start doing more to the blog. With regards to Phi Phi we will have to wait and see as we are currently up in Chiang Mai and will be heading across to Laos, Vietnam and then Cambodia and from there we will see if we can get to Phi Phi, would love to find out all that info for you, but failing to get there I will surely be speaking with other who have been there so will find out all you need. I have unfortunately already heard though that the turtles in Phi Phi don’t like people who dye their hair an ‘off’ red colour…..you best try purple or green 🙂

      Hope your keeping up with the goings on and now there should be a bit more content…pics etc. Later cigarette bed company x

  2. OOPs 1st part of my post didnt work!! im such a loser I cant even work a blog let alone travel the world on my own 🙁

    It was meant to stay –

    AHHHH Scottish you do make me laugh!! 1st chance ive had to check out your blog and ive def come to the conclusion your a crazy semi Irish man!! 🙂

    This latest post is funny as I keep having random dreams that things happen and I have to stay or that I miss my flight!! I do hope im not physic!!!………………..

  3. Mr Scotty I am in fact enjoying the weather! Oh how I’ll miss the cold rainy summers of the UK yeah right!

    Still at least it’s giving me the time to stay in and study, doing all my Divemaster exams on line so more time for diving and meeting turtles, who I’ll have you know happen to have excellent taste and love red heads! So where ever you’re getting your intel from you can tell them they are misinformed 🙂

    No worries if you don’t make Phi Phi, it’s a small place and yes, I may trip of my own feet on a daily basis walking down the street but I’m sure I can figure out how to survive!!!! yes I’m positive I can! 🙂

    I actually plan to visit Vietnam and Cambodia etc etc as well so your blog will still continue to be useful to me for now 🙂

    Continue to enjoy Mr man!x

  4. Scotty just staring to get round to reading the prose on your epic travels and just was brought up short with the title of this post…

    went onto this site to check out a doubt I HAD OVER THE WORD.


    To quote:

    reoccurring vs recurring : Common Errors in English

    « Back to Common Errors
    About reoccurring vs recurring
    Drop one ‘c’ and the ‘o’ when the event occurs and then occurs again. Don’t write reoccurring, for that’s not a word at all. Instead, drop one ‘c’ and the ‘o’ and write recurring. When your boss says to you, ” Make sure this mistake doesn’t reoccur,” tell her, “You meant recur, did you not?”
    recurring Meaning(s)
    (v) happen or occur again
    (v) return in thought or speech to something
    (v) have recourse to
    (s) coming back

    Thought you might like to debate with Ian who is the most prolific writer on tour and who has the handle on the English lingo…lol

    good to read though 🙂

  5. Hi Gary, thanks for your message. I am a self confessed butcherer of the English language and my spelling in atrocious (god bless spell check). Having Googled the word ‘Reoccuring’ I am happy with the spelling used in the context I used the word, you can’t argue with the likes of Collins and Oxford dictionaries…I’m sure Ian would beg to differ, but unless he sees this I am declaring my spelling correct and taking this as a victory 🙂
