I was so excited to conduct this interview with Linsay from Weigh Out Wander! Linsay is a world traveler, blogger, freelance cellist, and self-described master of plus-size living. Hers is one of my favorite travel accounts on Instagram, so when she approached me to do this collaboration, I couldn’t wait!
Be sure to check out her blog for insights on all the struggles and joys of being a big, beautiful plus-size traveler. And now, for her amazing interview:
The holidays are a fun, festive time of joyous celebration, but they can also be difficult for a lot of reasons. Whether you’re facing this season without a loved one, dealing with difficult relatives, or dreading the busy work that comes with prepping a Christmas dinner, the holiday season can make many people anxious.
If you exist in a larger body, much of that anxiety can stem from comments you know will come up during family get-togethers. “Are you sure you want to eat that?” “Cousin Susan has gained so much weight this year!” “Do you really need a second slice of pie?”
Those comments are hurtful, and hard to avoid. So, what can you do to make your holiday gatherings more cheer and less jeer?
Thanks to the power of Instagram, I’ve had the pleasure of connecting with numerous travelers from across the world, many of them plus size and/or body positive. It’s a wonderful platform for sharing photographs and supporting one another through our shared interests. Kathryn O’Halloran is one such traveler.
A globe-trotting romance writer, Kathryn has traveled for years and now considers herself a digital nomad, making a living from her fiction. After reading her interview below, I highly recommend you check her out. She’s well worth following!
I can’t count the number of times I’ve said I’d book a beach vacation when I lost weight. Hundreds? A thousand?
It was the same with our trip to London. I always said I’d travel when the weight dropped off and I felt comfortable in my own skin. My lifelong struggle with weight was holding me back, and the best thing I did last year was say to myself: to heck with it, let’s book this vacation!
This past week, I had the pleasure of conversing with the lovely Lauren from Wander Plus. Her inspiring Instagram account is dedicated to sharing photos and experiences of plus-size travelers from all over the world. This girl is amazing, and any introduction I try to write will fall short of her own words.
So, without further ado, here’s her wonderful interview:
