‘Extraordinary . . . a glimpse into a future of endless possibility.’
– Martin Dorey, travel writer



A truly inspirational memoir for anyone who dreams of leading a different life.

Vivid, self-confessional and darkly humorous, The Happy Nomad is the story of how Charlotte Bradman breaks free from her turbulent past, mounting debts and the nine-to-five treadmill, and finds a simpler way of life living full-time in her beloved campervan. Freed from the burden of a thirty-year-old boiler on the edge, temperamental ceilings that don’t like heights, and letterboxes that mercilessly allow bills and arrest warrants through, Charlotte finds joy in a life lived closer to nature. Stripped back to the very basics, no longer weighed down by material possessions, she discovers the precious gift of time, enabling her to connect with both herself and the people she meets, and to re-evaluate what it truly means to thrive.

The Happy Nomad is a gripping account of how one woman lost her house and found peace and contentment in her campervan home.

‘Proof that water in the form of driving rain, wild river, icy lake, or turquoise ocean can build back a body, mend a tattered mind, heal a broken heart, and soothe a weary soul.’
– Dr Wallace J Nichols, marine biologist and author of Blue Mind

Charlotte Bradman's book The Happy Nomad, about her journey through trauma and adversity to the peace and clarity of blue spaces, provides proof that water in the form of driving rain, wild river, icy lake, or turquoise ocean can build back a body, mend a tattered mind, heal a broken heart, and soothe a weary soul.
