I’m Kammi, aka The Happy Kamper. I’m based in London with my fiancé & our overly fluffy, blue-eyed cat, Coco. I write about things that make me happy – travelling, nature, baking cakes and general adventures.
I grew up as a bit of a nomad living in the Philippines, Norway, Germany, Pakistan, the USA and Nigeria, hence the love for travel and soaking up other cultures. On here I share my experiences and favourite places, along with tips for your own trips, a slice of history and plenty of photos! My dad put a camera in my hand as soon as I could fathom what it did, and photography is something I adore to this day. I’m never happier than when I’m behind the lens.
Not the naked kind! I’ve lived in a lot of cities, but my heart is firmly in the countryside. It may not have the best bars or the 24-hour food delivery that keeps me alive living in London, but there’s green stuff and animals – both of which soothe my soul. Regardless of where I am in the world, I seem to gravitate towards the natural – whether this be places to visit, food or products. I’ve swum with sharks and sea turtles in the Bahamas, played with lion cubs in Africa, had a “pet” moose for a while in Oslo, rescued my puppy from birds of prey in Karachi, and come face to face with a Green Mamba snake in Nigeria (nearly died – me, not the snek).
My favourite places and experiences are always off the beaten track. Failing this, I like to see & do things differently. Whether it’s visiting a private beach in Balochistan (the only beach where you can wear a bikini in Pakistan!), or getting up at 4am just to wander the streets of my city at sunrise with my camera, I’m happy. Life is the adventure that you make it.
