Nowhere For Very Long: The Unexpected Road To An Unconventional Life by Brianna Madia
A woman defined by motion, Brianna Madia bought a beat-up bright orange van, filled it with her two dogs Bucket and Dagwood, and headed into the canyons of Utah with her husband. Nowhere for Very Long is her deeply felt, immaculately told story of exploration—of the world outside and the spirit within.
However, pursuing a life of intention isn’t always what it seems. In fact, at times it was downright boring, exhausting, and even desperate—when Bertha overheated and she was forced to pull over on a lonely stretch of South Dakota highway; when the weather was bitterly cold and her water jugs froze beneath her as she slept in the parking lot of her office; when she worried about money, her marriage, and the looming question mark of her future. But Brianna was committed to living a life true to herself, come what may, and that made all the difference.
Nowhere for Very Long is the true story of a woman learning and unlearning, from backroads to breakdowns, from married to solo, and finally, from lost to found to lost again…this time, on purpose.
I really enjoyed this book. I started going camping when I was growing up and my husband and I bought an old school bus in the early 90’s and converted it into a motor home. It was beautiful. I looked for the photos but can’t find them. Must be in a box of other things I haven’t found, hopefully I will soon.
This story kept my attention right from the start. There was a lot of adventure and scary moments that I was thinking “why in the world are they/she doing that?”
There is so much adventure and also some sadness that I can’t mention or it will spoil a major part of the book.
If you like this kind of book, I highly recommend it!
