The dream of the majority of people is to be able to leave behind their boring everyday life, filled with work and obligations, to seek new horizons and savor the joys of outdoor living.
However, few people have the courage to make it happen.
Siobhan Daniels, a 63-year-old former journalist from BBC in Tunbridge Wells, Kent, UK, made this courageous decision and has never regretted taking such action.
Over 3 years ago, she acquired a leisure vehicle worth €45,000, which she affectionately named “Dora the Explorer,” and now uses to thoroughly explore England.
This lady, who once worked for BBC South East, revealed that her former job was holding her back, whereas now she feels completely free: “I no longer pay rent,” she declared.
Between stops, Siobhan is based in Dorset, where she works on a farm in exchange for electricity.
In addition to her professional activities, she had to overcome the mood changes brought on by menopause.
“I constantly felt worried and tired,” she explained. Siobhan shared that her lack of self-confidence had begun to invade her life and led her to “pretend” because she didn’t know who to ask for advice.
After realizing that her 32-year-old daughter was in perfect health, the 63-year-old woman made the decision to change her life and embark on a new adventure.
Her recently acquired accommodation features a shower cabin, a fridge with a freezer compartment, and a cooking stove: she even set up a dedicated gin counter.
Currently, the former journalist shares updates about her life with over 5,000 followers on Instagram.
Siobhan acknowledged that there are elements she misses, but she is thrilled with her new way of life.
Even though she chose to leave behind a more “comfortable” life, she now considers herself “more fulfilled than ever” and wishes to encourage others to regain control of their lives and live according to their preferences at any stage of their existence.
