Where is the strangest place you have slept?

There are lots of times when we might not be at home, when we have to sleep in other places rather than our bed.

For me, I haven't really slept anywhere strange, other than on public transport.

But what about you? Where is the strangest place that you have fallen asleep in the past?

    I have slept in airports and railway stations, usually on the way to places. I don't know what counts as unusual. I have spent the night in a big converted windmill on the Norfolk coast, and a monastery and a nunnery in Nepal.

    I've slept in a Mongolian ger (like a yurt).

    I slept in a cinema in Frankfurt on a back home flight. We were so tired and thought it would be a good idea to sleep in one of those chairs.

    I slept in one of those plastic chairs in an airport.

    I slept on matresses when we moved in our home and the furniture wasn't delievered.

    I have slept on a straw mat in a few places, usually village houses in places like Nepal or Thailand @Hermine.

    What do mean by 'I slept in a cinema in Frankfurt on a back home flight'?

    I have slept on the floor in airports, and a couple of times on the floor of station waiting rooms in India. One time I fell asleep alone but when I woke up I was surrounded by a dozen nuns from Rajasthan. I once was sleeping on the floor at a friend's house and when I woke up found a cat sleeping on my head!

    I was coming home from a trip to the USA and we thought it'll be a good idea to buy a cinema ticket where we could have enough chairs for a nap.

    Gives that more sense? @mheredge

    When I was a child we wanted o sleep in our shed. Don't ask me now what we had slept on.
    I just can remember it was raining and rain drops were falling on something hard and it made a strange noise so we gave up and ended finally up in our cosy beds. The moon shone brightly through the wooden wall.

    I remember sleeping outside in a little old tent that my father had when he had visited the Alps with his brother, before he got married. It was a great adventure, even if it was only in our back garden @Hermine.
