24-GODIŠNJA Sidney Ferbrache putuje po SAD-u sa svojim psom. Iza sebe ima vezu s dečkom koja je neslavno završila. Posao nije napustila, već radi putem interneta s mjesta gdje parkira svoj kamper. Vozilo je preuredila sama i prilagodila ga nomadskom načinu života. Tako je Sidney postala prava inspiracija ljudima širom svijeta koji bi napravili radikalne promjene.

This is what most nights really look like for me. No crazy views. No insane scenery. Sometimes there really are mountains but most nights there are just bushes in the parking lot. Ella laying at my feet and my best friend on the phone. Working on my laptop and way too much coffee for one person. It’s these moments that make living in a van feel so normal. But it’s also these quiet, normal moments where it usually hits me.. I’ve actually created this life for myself. I worked really hard and still do every day. I figured out what I wanted and I did it. It’s not impossible or just luck. You can do the exact same thing. No excuses. Just figure out what you want and get there. And whenever you doubt yourself, just look forward to the first mundane moment where it hits you and you realize you actually did it. You created your own happiness. Amazing views are cool but these moments are everything.

Sidney je radila tri posla i još nekoliko dodatnih kako bi zaradila za kombi. Potom je kupila fotoaparat i stativ pa danas s fanovima dijeli prizore iz svoga novog života.

Na putovanja ne ide sama

Nakon prekida, željela je dokazati svijetu da je sasvim sposobna za jedan ovakav pothvat. Ipak, na putu je prati pas Ella, a njihov zajednički Instagram profil iz dana u dan ima sve više pratitelja.

When I was growing up, close friends and family always made fun of my dirty feet. I would run bare foot through the neighborhood to my friends’ houses and play outside for hours once I got there. My hair was always tangled and my nails were always darkened from the dirt underneath. Makeup was foreign and products didn’t exist. Appearance was a concept I didn’t even consider. But then I got to high school and everything changed. I started getting embarrassed by their judgement. I started wearing makeup because I became convinced I was ugly without it. I spent money on fake nails so people would stop calling me a “tom boy”. I ruined my hair with bleach to be as blonde as possible… I think maybe I’m so happy now because I feel more like a kid than I have in years. I run barefoot with my dogs and they never care about my dirty feet. I wash my hair when I wash my hair and no one is here to tell me to brush it. I do yoga mid hike and walk away with the same darkened nails I had back then. Self care looks different for us all and mine has nothing to do with what I look like anymore. I take care of myself now in ways that matter to me. Your child self was likely right all along. Judgement from others always fades and does nothing but confuse you about who you really are. And maybe next time you jokingly poke fun at a friend’s appearance, think about how it could impact them. Never be the person to change someone else. Try running barefoot beside them instead or just step out the way while they do. - New podcast episode all about hygiene on the road is out now. I talk all things shower, toilet, laundry, and taking care of *yourself*. Search “My Solo Road” wherever you get your podcasts.

Obišla je više od 20 država

Prva avantura dogodila se pri odlasku u Južnoafričku Republiku.

"Željela sam se zabavljati i za to sam sebi dovoljna. Usput sam obavila trotjedno istraživanje o sigurnosti žena širom Južnoafričke Republike", navodi Sidney, a prenosi Bored panda.

"Kada sam svoje namjere priopćila roditeljima, ostali su skamenjeni od šoka. Ljudi u mom okruženju bili su vrlo zabrinuti. Ipak, znala sam da će sve biti u redu. Kada sam se vratila sa svoga prvog putovanja, bilo mi je jasno da sam rođena za ovakve avanture. To mi je potpuno promijenilo život, objašnjava Sidney.

Kupnja kampera

Na svoje prvo putovanje krenula je s tadašnjim dečkom. Avantura je trajala skoro godinu dana. Kamper su kupili za 18.000 dolara, a potom su u njega uložili još 10.000. Međutim, ubrzo su se rastali zbog različitih ambicija.

My girl turns 1 year old today!! 🎉🎁🎈 I had no idea how much Ella would impact my life and these adventures on the road. She’s become my other half this last year and I can’t imagine doing any of it without her. I remember looking at this little puppy in the passenger seat when I drove her home for the first time thinking “holy sh*t, what did I just do”. I was far more nervous about being responsible for another life than I ever was traveling alone and being responsible for my own. But she makes me laugh on days when I don’t talk to one other person. She forces me to get outside first thing in the morning and feel the sun on my face. She keeps me responsible, accountable, and overall just a better, happier human. You are everything my girl and nothing would be the same without you. ❤️ You deserve this entire plate of pupcakes but pls don’t throw them up on me later. 🙏🏼 HAPPY FIRST BIRTHDAY ELLA!! I love you, I love you, I love you.

Pas Ella - zvijezda Instagrama

Radila je tri posla nakon prekida i uštedjela novac za novi kamper. Pokrenula je blog o svojim avanturama, a  u rujnu 2018. godine krenula je na put. U međuvremenu joj se pridružio zlatni retriver Ella i od tada su nerazdvojne. Zajedno su obišle više od 20 država.

I’ve been getting quite a few repeat questions lately and I never want it to feel like I’m hiding anything or have some secret that allows me to do what I’m doing. I’m always an open book and want you to know the answer to anything you may have been wondering whether it’s van life, my life, having a dog on the road, etc. Here are the answers to a few of the most commonly asked questions but if you have something else, I would be happy to answer whatever you’ve got. ❤️ - I do live in the van full- time and don’t have any property or apartment anywhere. I consider my home base to be Indiana where I visit family every 4 to 5 months. - You’re sweet for asking, but no I do not want a (human) co- pilot. 🐶 - When I leave Ella in the van, I close the pocket door which blocks heat from the front. I put up the insulated window covers which blocks heat from the back. With the front windows cracked and the vent fan on, it makes the van much cooler than you’d probably expect. I also leave plenty of water in her bowl. If I think it’s still too warm, I simply don’t leave her inside. She comes with me 99% of the time anyways. - My website is how I generate an income on the road. I do affiliate marketing, advertising, and offer a mentorship program for anyone trying to build a website and make money from it. I’m also currently working on a few products of my own which will be done very soon! I’ve worked hard to make the website get plenty of traffic through search engines instead of Instagram which is why I don’t talk about it very often here. (But I do love talking about this stuff so seriously ask me anything you want.) - I take all of my own photos! I have a tripod and a timer on the camera. I usually set it to take a photo every second for 20-30 seconds. That gives me plenty of options and then I just edit in Lightroom on my laptop... usually several days later 🙈 - Anything else, just leave down below and I’ll answer everything! Have a wonderful week, my loves. 😌

Sidney je inspiracija budućim avanturistima

"Ovako planiram živjeti sljedeće tri do pet godina. Prošlo je godinu dana od početka, a u sljedeće dvije napokon ću znati hoće li avantura na kotačima biti moj život", objašnjava Sidney i dodaje da se nije pokajala zbog svoje odluke.

"Ne znam što donosi budućnost i kada ću se napokon zaustaviti. Također, ne želim sebi nametati ideju o stalnom putovanju", iskrena je Sidney.
