Its kind of a usual thing I guess!Most of the people tend to sleep on a journey may that be a little long or too long!Sleeping is a part of we humans and its good deal of leisure time too,but when we aren't trying to sleep and we fall asleep and wake to see our things missing,our time schedule all disturbed or even finding ourselves in an isolated or never seen before place.Things happen when one goes to sleep due to tiredness,unwell health and also due to the atmosphere one feels on a trip or a journey that too alone. If the vehicle is driven by us then we might be on the alert side and wouldn't do so unwillingly.Well share your experiences.

I remember when I was a kid. Every time we are on a trip I get excited. So excited that when we are on our way, I cannot sleep that long or cannot sleep at all. I love seeing mountains and fields and shores as we cruise along the road. I can stay awake for 6 hours just admiring the few outside our car. Everything changed when I started working. hahaha... I view my journey to my destination as my only time to sleep well and relax. Besides the fact that we are always on the go when we are in a different place, I usually sleep on our journey because I usually stay at work a few hours before we leave. hehehe....

Yes of course, things do change! The thoughts in the childhoods are so real and in fact innocent that the part of life with the admiration and curiosity keeps on tumbling on and on. Not that in the years ahead it comes down but the rate at which it creeps up is really less. Sleeping when going before work is a usual thing, ain't it. But going in for work through the usual places is more on the safer side. Anyway things for that situation also needs care and cautiousness. So I wish happy journeys, workings and Mylotting too.

Bus journeys are the absolute worst for me As the journey goes on, I find myself desperately having to fight to keep my eyes open, and my head starts to rock. Strangely enough, I never feel tired in any other transport, only on a bus

I would also join to that habit!Well the head rocking thing is a not a surprise when I am traveling especially in a bus.I mostly prefer the window sides and that's what adds to the comfort of sleeping. You point out that eve n after a sleepy and a cozy journey , you don not get tired,that pretty wired and you quote it as "strange".I would most of the time be seen washing my face again and again to make me come back on the track to walk at least.If the bus journeys are though rough and scratchy road or with hick ups and slow downs the it would surely add to the tiredness,if these weren't the things then would you be up and not tired. Happy other journeys in other other transports for you,i would say!

hi,tin,in my view it all depend on situation and sometimes it is God given gift also.The situations like while driving,while working in the office etc are not willing and dangerous also.Well,there is very little chance to me to drive as my driver never miss duty. But those people who get sleep in long or short jounies while they travel in bus/train,they are lucky fellows,in my idea,as many people donot get sleep easily. I am one of the victim,as i rarely get sleep in journies. Have a nice time,friend.

I have a suggestion,will you call me by by name Tintu at least ,calling tin makes me feel like a non living thing! LOL You must be so lucky,I guess.You have this habit of controlling your sleep on a trip which is so good to have at times when about most of the people do go to sleep and wake up to think that actually when did they go to sleep. With a driver always on time its would be much easy for you if you had the habit of going to sudden sleep.The driver would then take you back and to the place where you work and you would just have to listen to the driver's call upon reaching the destination.I think you aren't a victim,but I am who gets sleep when the gushing air hits my face when I am in a bus or any kind of four wheeler,15 minutes and one would find me sleeping on the next person's shoulder or something!

Well at travelling, we should stay alert and i dont feel its good to sleep during the time. We may miss our place and someone can steal our things. So better to stay alert and can take complete rest when we are back to our place.

I am totally agreeing with your point of view too. The alertness is what has the top priority apart from the fact that we all should also enjoy the wonderful scenes out in the routes. The thought of always being so alert can makes anyone lose the beauty of the places. Well, these are second things when one can control the sleep by just preparing well and good before a journey is rightly advised. A short nap before any long journey comes in good as it doesn't make one instantly go on sleeping through out the trip, isn't.

on a trip if you want to sleep that is very bad because you have to see the new places that you have come to see. thats why stay on all the time

Its like we don't want to sleep but we fall asleep. Just more like an habit or an situation and not our own desire. Seeing new places and exploration is the great deal of a thing to do but when the sleep comes in between these two likings aren't always the real possibilities. I do feel sleepy when the gush of wind blows up my face of which glides me to the dreaming world and suddenly wakes us up just to know that the place where we wanted to go in had got far away so making all the time go off like swish of a sword. Alertness is well needed mostly when we all travel alone.

Sometimes, if a trip is particularly long and boring, I will drift off to sleep. However, in certain trips, like plane journeys, I find it impossible to get to sleep. Easiest is by far anything involving a coach or bus, they are so damn boring and long

Definitely the mode of traveling has got the factor involved in sleeping. When it comes to plane and the costliest of them all, then who would ever find the thought of sleeping anyway. When in my childhood days I got the opportunity to travel by air for the first time then it was truly a wonderful experience, more than the traveling I enjoyed the take off and the landing. To say of sleeping, I never did sleep. When it comes to riding in a luxury car or any of such vehicle, I would imagine one wont sleep and rather enjoy gazing and experiencing the minute and huge attributes inside and outside.

I always fall asleep on journeys! It doesn't seem to matter how long the journeys are, or if I am on a bus, train or even in a car...I always fall asleep after 10-15 minutes. I'm guessing this is mainly down to having problems sleeping in general, also the motion of the vehicle that I am in lulling me to sleep.

The habit is within many and not moreover created due to the life that goes on, but the thing of sleeping while moving in a vehicleis much more prone to mos tpeople and thus it comes out as tiredness and later on becomes a sleepy and everlasting stress for the day. The bus travel for me is what makes me go to sleep as quick as any mode present.

ya i used to sleep in a trip when i am alone and when i find nothing interesting to see . mostly i will sleep because of the wind in the bus and the tierdness . but if i go with my friends i wont sleep since i will be chatting . its also a pleasure to sleep in a trip since we may not have much tierd and we will have a time pass too . we wont have the feel that we have travelled such a long distance . i like travelling and sleeping in them too .

Sure, the gushing wind always does the trick of making people sleep in any trip.THe enjoyment of the travel most of the time gets vanished when the sleeping takes over us, getting into the mood of pleasure with the trip is what one would be thinking and what one gets is out of sorts to be said in short. Companions wont make us go into the sleepy world that easily but what can be done if one is so tentative to it,right.
