The tiny camper’s kitchen setup was impressive. I didn’t expect that I’d be able to cook almost any meal my heart desired.

When I travel, I almost always expect to eat out. It’s easier to order from local restaurants than to predict what equipment the kitchen in my hotel, Airbnb, or rental property might have.

Since a camper was even tinier than most hotels I’ve stayed in, I didn’t expect an elaborate kitchen setup. The Airbnb listing had images of breakfasts complete with coffee, eggs, avocado, and sweet potatoes, but I was skeptical. 

I was surprised by how accurate the listing was. When I arrived, I found an outdoor kitchen at the back of the camper with a sink and running water, multiple burners, pots and pans, colanders, cutting boards, knives, spices, a kettle, a French press, plates, bowls, cups, and silverware.

On the opposite side of the camper was a cooler where I could store any perishables. The only thing missing was an oven.

I, unfortunately, didn’t cook anything since I wrongly assumed the tiny space meant I’d have to sacrifice my love for cooking. Next time, I’m packing groceries.
