  1. Hello,

    I came across Spunkygirl Monologues while browsing through some travel blogs and loved reading the “Paris is Enforcing a New Exercise Program – Stairs, Everywhere!” article—I traveled abroad from January-June of last year (primarily London but I traveled all across Europe) and I can definitely remember my legs aching at the end of every day!

    I was also emailing you to see if you’d be interested in a guest post about travel tips, especially road trips. I’m working with a website that offers travel assistance and I would love to provide your readers with some helpful travel tips.

    Let me know if this is something you’d be interested in and I’d be happy to submit a guest post.


  2. Afternoon!!!!
    I was the deranged fellow with the air cannon from Screemers! 🙂
    Hope you enjoyed watching me drag me drag my girlfriend around by her hair!!!
    I’m dying to see how the video turned out.

    Give me a shout when you get a chance!!!!


  3. Hi! My name is Sarah, and my friend Kim and I run a newly-started travel blog focusing on our travels in Southeast Asia. I love your blog, it is spunky indeed! And I would love the opportunity to submit a guest blog if you’ll consider it. Below is a link to a post about visiting Komodo National Park in Indonesia and seeing the Komodo dragons in the wild (in other words, I risked my life to write this blog entry). I hope you’ll consider it as a guest post! Here’s the link:

    Thanks for your time!

  4. G’day Pamela,

    Chris from Aussie on the Road here. Updating my site’s links page and wondering if you’d like to do a link exchange?

    Let me know 🙂

    Pamela! I saw your article on Facebook today and you wrote about everything in my head concerning traveling while being more than a size 20. I am writing to ask if you have ever been to Sydney or Cairns, and if so, what tips do you have. I use a manual wheelchair when I travel, (I am disabled) and I am going to Australia for 2 weeks in July and August. Alone. Right now I am trying to find snorkeling trip companies who would either be willing to let me use the disabled platform to get into and out of the water, with help, or…here’s the fun part…finding a snorkeling trip company who is willing to help a 250 pound woman out of the ocean to get her back on the boat. There is a ladder on the side of the boat, but with the water moving, I simply can’t pull my disabled legs up on that ladder.
    Anyhow, I just LOVE your writing and I am so glad that you wrote about traveling while plus-sized. You are my hero.

    • Oh goodness, let me talk to some friends from Sydney and get back to you! I have not been there myself, but I am sure we can find a solution for you!! 🙂

    Hi! Thanks for covering Poland in your blog. Eastern Europe is awesome and a lot of people don’t know! I am a bit biased since my Grandma is Latvian. 🙂 The Baltics are also very interesting!

    A travel tip for Poland next time you go: for sure hit up Krakow-very cool old city, reminds me of Prague. Also, there is a huge salt mine you can go into that is amazing. I think it’s near Krakow or Prague . Can’t remember but the whole mine is intricately carved with sculptures, etc. thanks!

    I read your article on Poland. You barely scratched the surface with your visit. The largest castle in Europe is in Malbork. Torun is also a nice place to visit. If you do decide to go to Auschwitz you should take the package tour that day that will include the Wielicka Salt Mine. It has a Cathedral inside that is beautiful. It took 54 years to carve from the salt. Then there is Zakopane, Gora Zar, Wrotlaw, Krakow and many other places.
    You speak about pierogies (dumplings). They have different places with different fillings. Fillings such as duck, blueberries, etc.
    In Warsaw you should see the zoo. It is not like any American zoo. It has a more open feel to it. You should also see the Wilanow Palace.
    The hotel you stayed at has a very good restaurant as well as just across the street on the corner.
    Warsaw by law I am told must keep 28% of the spaces green. There is much to see and do and sometimes it is best to rent a car. A gps is helpful and the roads are well marked.

    • Oh, I know! I didn’t have nearly enough time in Poland. I definitely need to return and see more of the country. So interesting.

    I would like to “follow” your blog via Email.
    Unfortunately, I can’t find the Email subscription.
    Did I miss it or was this a conscious decision?
    Interesting read.

    Hi I just wanted to say I’ve enjoyed reading your posts today and I think your amazing. I’m a bigger girl and still have aspirations to travel the world after finishing college. Thanks for being an inspiration! Keep doing you. 🙂

    Hi Pamela! So, I’ve just found your blog searching for different things to see and eat in Bangkok aaaand we are definitely wanting to try out your shwarma guy. We LOVE shwarma and your post and pics just called out to me! That said, I am now your latest instagram follower. Perhaps one day (unless you’re currently in Bangkok!) we can meet somewhere on this amazing planet. Thanks in advance for the heads up to your shwarma place. Cheers to traveling, Dianne
