Hello, Mel here, I love travel and adventure, wanna come along for the ride? 


Hello and welcome to my blog. I'm a plus size lady in love with travel and adventure. My career as a PADI Scuba Diving Instructor and my passion for diving has taken me all over the world.

Originally from the UK, we relocated to Australia in 2008. I'm now what they called "settled" with my travel buddy, our two girls and our two fur babies in Brisbane, QLD. When I say settled, I mean we call it home but we are always off travelling and discovering new places and activities.


For many years I made excuses to not try the things I had always wanted to. I would learn to dive when I lost some weight, I would plan an epic trip as a reward to sticking to my diet. I got tired of sitting back watching everyone having a great time, and hoping I would one day be an acceptable size to join in. Life is short and I soon realised I was wasting mine waiting to be someone I'm not. 

Fast forward a few years, I have had some epic plus size adventures. Good job I just got on with it really, as I never did lose that weight!  

I want to share my experiences, tips and lessons learned to encourage people to not be restricted by your size and to just give things a go. 

I have set up a Facebook page for Plus Size people in Australia to meet friends and potential travel buddies and share stories and encouragement. You can also check out my adventure on Facebook and Instagram. Please pop over and say hello. 

If you're interested in working with me please get in touch.
