Hey All, thanks for visiting my blog.
I love food. I mean I really love food. I have a “healthy” appetite. I’m the girl that gets teased by friends and family because I will order multiple items at a restaurant…..and eat all of it. “Fat Girl” was a nickname that I was given by friends and family….and I’m okay with it. I just laugh it off. I know that I am healthy, fit and strong. In my travels I have been called gorda, gordita and I’ve heard the “wow she likes her rice” comments… but throughout the rest of the world these are compliments. This blog began as a way for my family and friends to keep up with me when I’m traveling and living far from home. A way for me to share favorite recipes and adventures, but it’s morphed into so much more.
Nowadays I eat mostly healthy, non-GMO food, most of it grown locally and I LOVE to cook, so I’ve been known to whip up a mean dinner or two. And for exercise I try to get outside and go for an adventure, sometimes just a mini adventure, but it sure beats the stair climber or spin class. And I love yoga. It has changed my life.
Speaking of adventure, I am perfectly okay living out of a backpacking and traveling the world, and since I don’t have any fears I find myself in really random situations…crashing wedding parties, hitching rides in Mexico, and taking a nap at 1700 feet below the ocean’s surface for the mere chance that I’ll see a six gill shark, sleeping on a fishing boat in Raja Ampat…you get the picture.
This blog is my opportunity to share with you my stories of adventure and misadventure while travelling, my favorite meals and libations, and my real adventures in the backcountry of the Pacific Northwest. Enjoy!
And I am not apologetic about calling my blog Fat Girl Does the World…so if it bothers you it’s your problem….deal with your shit!!!
