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.

If you haven’t checked out The Plus-Size Backpacker, you’re missing out! Read on to learn more about how this amazing gal is impacting the world.

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.
