Edith Bernier

I’m a 35-year-old, 5 ft 8 plus-size woman who, after falling in love with travels, fell in love with the joys of low-cost and freestyle exploration of other parts of the world.

So far, I have visited the USA, Cuba, El Salvador, England, Scotland, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Mexico, India, Guatemala, Hungary, Austria, Czech Republic & Poland.  Eventually, I want to go back to India, but also to Nepal, Vietnam, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Senegal, Spain, California, Chiapas…


Being a plus-size person is a challenging status nowadays, even more when it comes to take a plane, a rickshaw or find travel gear or clothing adapted to my size.  It is with that in mind that I decided to start blogging about the reality of being a Plus-Size (PS) Backpacker in 2013.

It’s on the premiss that traveling wouldn’t be as simple for me as it would be for many other “standard size” backpackers that came the idea of writing a blog about the best fitted gear, the most “plus-size friendly” airlines and other advice pertaining to being a budget-but-chubby traveler. I can’t be the only plus-size traveler, yet I haven’t met many, not to say any at all.

Edith decided to create a blog as a tool for budget travelers in general, but mostly to provide cost-efficient alternatives and suggestions to the challenges faced by plus-size travelers, especially the ones who are traveling on a budget (whether it’s a choice or a necessity). She recently published The Ultimate Guide to Plus Size Backpacking: Travel Light. Whatever your size. Available on Amazon.
