Welcome to my personal adventure blog!
My name is Camilla a.k.a Cambo and I am a proudly South African girl currently living in Johannesburg. I am married to an amazing husband Warrick, and have two adorable dogs – Callie the ‘Princess’ Jack Russell and Sir Lanark the Scottie.
I am passionate about leading an active, healthy and adventurous life so it is fitting that I work for a leading fitness and lifestyle technology company. I love spending time in nature whether it be going on a game drive to spot the Big 5 in the Kruger National Park, mountain biking and trout fishing in Lydenburg or running up Table Mountain – I am that kinda girl.
Some of the BIG adventures I have taken on in my life to date include completing Ironman South Africa, the Comrades Ultra Marathon, cycling 4650km on a Qhubeka Buffalo single-speed bicycle from Joburg2Kili and summiting the highest mountain in Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro. I have also had to overcome health challenges in my life having been diagnosed with a blood clot in 2017.
The three key areas I aim to focus on in my blog are as follows:
LIVING – To enjoy ‘living’ life to the fullest you have to embrace the ups and downs. In my blog, I cover my personal adventures and challenges I have taken on in my life as well as inspirational stories/adventures I have read or heard about to help inspire others to truly ‘LIVE’ a full and no-regrets life. As our late President Nelson Mandela once said “It always seems impossible until it’s done!”
LOVING – Whatever you plan to do in life, do it with love and passion. In my blog I focus on things that I truly love which includes nature and wildlife and sporting pursuits from mountain biking, running, endurance events and outdoor adventures.
EXPLORING – I am always searching and finding new challenges to take on in this BIG adventure called Life! Through my blog posts, I like to share my journey in taking on these adventures with you all to hopefully provide inspiration that anything is possible if you put your mind, heart and soul into achieving or accomplishing whatever it may be. Sometimes you don’t always get the outcome you looking for but in the process you learn more about yourself and it allows you to explore new possibilities.
