My name is Lama, I recently turned 33 and live in Seoul, South Korea. I have worked for 8 years in ETS (Emission Trading Scheme) which is in environmental management. In my free time I am out in the woods and wilderness and I often camp on the weekends. When I am tired and need energy, I immediately become happy and recover when I engage in outdoor activities.

Q&A with Lama

What’s your words to live by/motto?

The motto of my life is Carpe Diem. I try to live a happy life while doing what I love to do.

If you had to describe yourself as an animal, which one would it be?

I'd would say a llama. Because of my Instagram name lamacamper, people always call me llama and often tag me in llama pictures. It's a mysterious and cute-looking animal, so I'm not complaining.

If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?

I really like ramen, I always bring ramen when I go camping, and I think Korean ramen is the best.

Where is the next place you want to travel to?

I want to travel to the Scandinavia, where the story behind Roselli also came into being. The nature is so beautiful. I also think it's a great place for bushcraft. I would have liked to travel there in the near future.

What’s your outdoor story?

When I was young, I always went hiking and camping with my parents. When I later became an adult and independent, I started camping with my friends and then relived many of these wonderful childhood memories.

After years of living and working in a very urban environment, I believe that my desire to get out and rest in nature has grown stronger.

The happiness of getting out and camping always makes me long so much for the weekend. Over the years I have been camping, doing a lot of bushcraft and backpacking and it is these things that make me happy. To remember these moments led me to a great interest in photography.

I look forward to having an even richer and happier outdoor life with Roselli in the future.
