On The Run…

It feels like I have been on the run! This year has been incredible. It’s been an absolute blessing. The past three weeks have been an absolute dream. My birthday was July 25th. Happy Birthday To Me! I have been to Philadelphia, then to The Curvy Fashionista‘s TCFStyle Expo in Atlanta, Georgia.  Usually, I plan a party to celebrate my birthday, but this year I decided to do things differently and celebrate on the beautiful island of Jamaica. There were so many opportunities that were presented to me and I am very thankful. Yes,  #menofsize do travel!

Welcome To Yard!!

I booked a flight with United Airlines and I regret taking a seat in the aisle. I got bumped the entire flight. I think some of the passengers and staff thought that I was part of the aisle. But, it didn’t discourage me. After watching two movies we landed safely in Jamaica. Jamaica recently celebrated 55 years of independence, it was a very exciting time in Jamaica. And this man was in the middle of the celebrations. The music is unforgettable, from reggae to the dance hall. Amazing. I danced to Popcaan and Vybz Kartell most of my vacation.

(I even got the chance to squeeze some #brawnfit in!)

Some of the food that I had..

Due to the Trans Atlantic Slave trade, families were separated in the most horrific way! When I went to Jamaica there were so many familiar faces! I kept asking myself, I wonder if I am related to anyone of these beautiful people (My mother’s side is from this beautiful island.) It was very interesting to be thousands of miles from home and still feel connected to the people. The escape from reality was so necessary. I thought about the parallels between all Africans in the diaspora. There is so much more, but I will reserve my perspectives for another time.

The weather was amazing! The beaches were absolutely beautiful. I was able to see these size 15 feet in the water! It was absolutely inviting and I didn’t want to leave. At all. I felt at home. I felt at peace. I was able to reflect on this year and prepare to finish up strong. And there was a hammock strong enough to hold all 310 pounds of me. I went to that hammock about a good four times and marveled at how strong the wood is! The food was absolutely amazing! I had plantain almost every day that I was there. The sugar cane wasn’t as sweet as I would have liked, but the mangoes were phenomenal. I enjoyed the scenery, it was a lot less hustle than what I am accustomed to in the New York City streets. wanderlust, travelnoire, travel, bigmentravel, Jamaica, Caribbean, plus male blogger, big and tall blogger, men of size, brawn blogger, big and tall model, plus male model, gentlemenscurb, kavah king, brawn model, big and tall, brawn, plus male, king, kavah, brooklyn, new york city, brawnfit, brawnfitness, brawn fashion, big and tall fashion, plus male fashion, gentlemen, curb, plusmalefashion, plus malemodel, brawn model, plus size influencer, influencer, plus male influencer,

Regardless of your size, make sure you travel. It’s so necessary and very liberating. I am debating if I will make a birthday trip an annual event. I had an amazing time. I am glad that you took the time to read about my travels. I am thankful and very much appreciative. Within the near future, I look to travel a whole lot more. It’s a blessing.

The Curb Around The World: Kayaking! Gentlemen’s Curb Plus Size Male Blogger

In The Curb Around The World

*As Posted On Plus-Model-Mag

man travels

A few weeks ago, I headed to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic for some rest and relaxation. I live in Brooklyn, New York so I jumped at the chance to breathe some fresh air.

Most of the time, traveling as a person of size is not easy. But… traveling is good for the soul so you should never let your size stop you from exploring what’s out there in the world. Hispaniola has a very rich history and I’m grateful that I was able to experience the island.

Besides the normal hiccups traveling, I realized that Delta Airlines is NOT made for people of size. I felt like I was sitting in a child’s seat the entire flight. I know for sure that the next time I fly with Delta Airlines, that I am upgrading to first class; not for anything more than for comfort.

Despite the flight issue, once there, I had a phenomenal time! I can’t fully describe how calming and freeing it was to do absolutely nothing. I ate when I wanted. I slept when I wanted. I even got comfortable when I wanted.

 

The menu was amazing! I had pineapples and watermelon during every meal. Since pineapples are my favorite fruit, the fact that there was so much pineapples available to eat, that was a highlight of my vacation.

I ate so much fruit and drank so much water that I felt refreshed and ready to tackle everything. And that I did!

I tried so many things that were on my “must-do” list while there. Most notably, I mustered up the courage to go kayaking.

At 6’1 and 324 pounds, you become hesitant about trying new activities where your feet aren’t on the ground. However, I decided to face my apprehensions and get my “husky” self into the Atlantic Ocean.

**That’s what’s my great grandmother calls me: “Husky”. I can’t even argue with a 94-year-old woman.**

I listened carefully to the directions given and hopped into the kayak. The water can hold up cruise ships that weigh thousands of pounds. So I had nothing to be fearful or apprehensive about, right? Nah.

I ended up overboard. It was one of the funniest things that happened on vacation. I should have placed myself in the center, which would have balanced the boat. In retrospect, I wasn’t as centered in the boat as I thought. I tried again and was successful. I was not about to give up.

I almost kayaked to Spain! <laughs> Not bad for the big guy. Don’t let your size be your crutch. Always keep trying until your goals are reached. Whether you’re trying a new activity or just trying anything in life where you are hesitant because of your size, never give up.

Overall, I had a phenomenal time and suggest all men, especially of size, get out there and travel. The Caribbean sun and blue water is a must for everyone.

In traveling, make sure you can be accommodated. Make sure you aren’t cramped up. Don’t sit near a window seat on a plane unless you have enough leg room. The only thing I wanted to do was stretch my legs on the flight!

 

Until next time… Kavah

I am from Brooklyn, New York. Although I love my city, sometimes city life can be too intense. At that point I realized a vacation was needed. The workload I placed on myself was starting to get to me, I decided that I was going to take some time away to gather my thoughts.

I realized that Delta’s seats are not for men of size! I felt like I was in a box the entire flight. I am going to upgrade to first class the next time that I fly with Delta, for comfort reasons only. But, comfort is definitely needed regardless of size. It’s just that some of us need more “comfort” than others. The flight was only for a few hours, but it felt like a year and a half! After the flight situation, the airplane landed and I was off to my hotel.  The decor of the hotel was amazing! The floors were marble and there were exotic animals on the resort.

I hung out with the locals of the island. They were friendly, I saw the churches and the schools. I was given a taste of daily life on the island. I went to the beaches that were far way from the resorts. Those beaches were the best! The water was so blue that it looked fake! I saw plantain plantations and coca leaf plants, I enjoyed the care free life style the island! The weather was hot and the beaches seemed to call you in! But as usual some activities that I planned didn’t go as well for me because of my size. We made it work, size doesn’t stop the show! I needed some clothing that matched my size and my personality.

Enter: Large Lad clothing company is a company that is made with men of size in mind. The slogans “large and fully in charge” speaks to how I feel about myself. And if you are a man of size reading this post, then the slogan should speak to you as well. Being 6’1 and 324, I am what many would consider to be a large lad. I am sure Stevie Wonder could see that! Check out Large Lad Clothing and see the awesome clothes! Jayme Weir the CEO of LLC, put a royal feeling into many of the designs of the LLC clothing brand. I always wanted to ride an ATV and all other motorized vehicles that would get me a traffic ticket if I drove them in New York City. I fell in love with speeding, I guess the Large Lad clothing got to my head, because I felt that I owned the highways and cause an accident. I am safe. No one was harmed, but the experience was amazing.
