Interview with Edith from The Plus-Size Backpacker!

I’m thrilled to feature Edith from The Plus-Size Backpacker in this latest interview! When I first started Travel with Curves, there weren’t many plus-size travel blogs floating around cyberspace, but The Plus-Size Backpacker was one of them (hers was the first, in fact!). She probably doesn’t realize this, but Edith’s blog inspired me to forge ahead with my own. In fact, I’ve looked up to her for a lot longer than I’ve actually known her, and I’m glad I can now count her among my friends.

Ziplining While Fat

When I tell people I’ve gone skydiving, bungee jumping, and power hang gliding, I notice the look of shock. I don’t seem like the type. It’s not just the glasses; it’s my size.

My weight has yo-yoed over the years and I have never been what is considered thin. So, when I was planning to go on a solo trip to Chiang Mai Thailand, ziplining was a must do according to many articles I read.

Before booking, I checked the weight requirements. I chose the combination of a Segway tour through town in the morning followed by ziplining in the afternoon.

On the day of my adventure, I was the first to arrive within my group. Three men were working in the office. I took a seat to wait for the others. The staff was whispering and snickering about something, and I soon realized they were trying to decide who was going to ask me how much I weighed.

My Summer as a Madam

I never thought I would find myself living as a professional vagabond.

I went to college and had a pretty specific career plan, but in 2012 when I graduated, I was left with a degree and no prospects. After a few years of serving lattes and bussing tables, I was invited to spend a summer working in Alaska. Me, who thought she would never leave the Midwest. Me, who only had a little bit of travel experience and who hated being anywhere out of her comfort zone.
