Night terror abroad

 PortAventura Hotel



5th July 2014



As you know I am in Salou with my family.

We arrived here on the first of July and let’s just say it was a pretty hectic journey as our flight was delayed for 2 hours. Anyways we are here now and the hotel is great, there is a massive pool and the staff are friendly and I am really enjoying it here, well at least I was until last night.

We were out late last night watching the entertainment at the hotel so when we went back to the room we were tired. I fell asleep around 1 am. I had a dream, well so I thought it was, I seen my mam walk out of the hotel room to find my brother so I decided to follow her. I got out of bed and left the hotel room, the door shut behind me. I continued to follow my mam down the elevator and out the big glass doors. We continued down the road and walked for about ten minutes. My mam was in a distance but I could still see her and then finally I caught up to her.


Then all of a sudden, I hear a loud beeping noise and I suddenly woke up. I was standing on a road in the middle of traffic. I thought I was still dreaming but unfortunately, I wasn’t. There  I was in my pyjamas, I was in so much shock that I couldn’t even move out of the way. My eyes started to water and I began to cry, I was by myself in a different country and I didn’t know what to do

Then a car door opened in front of me and someone got out of the car. She asked me where I came from and I told her the name of the hotel. She offered to take me back as I didn’t know where it was. On the way back I used her phone to ring my mam. My mam started to cry over the phone because she was so worried about me.

When we arrived at the hotel, my mam was at the door waiting for me and gave me a hug. She thanked the girl that brought me back safely. We then went up to the hotel room and I fell asleep within an hour but my mam, on the other hand, didn’t. she was so thankful that nothing seriously bad had happened to me as I could have been hit by a car or even worse came across someone dangers

For the rest of the holiday that was all that I could think about. I had never sleepwalked before so it was unusual for me and especially to walk in the middle of traffic. Were flying back in two days and I can’t wait to be home.

See you then
