“Right now, I’m out in the middle of nowhere.”

—Ebaby!’s Andy, speaking about exploring nature

Meaning

in the countryside; far from cities or people

Use

Andy is hiking in the forest. He is far from cities, towns, or even other people. He’s in the middle of nowhere. Andy likes being in the middle of nowhere, but he is also a little afraid of meeting Bigfoot, a mythical creature who lives in the forest. In the middle of nowhere, no one can protect him.

Some of us love to be in the middle of nowhere. We feel happy and comfortable in nature, and we don’t need lots of people around us. However, some of us really do need to be near other people. Which type of person are you? Do you feel comfortable when you are alone in the middle of nowhere?
