Raise your hand if you love to travel! I know I do. My travel bucket list grows each year. As much as I absolutely love traveling on my own, there is something super special about traveling with a group. Travel groups are on the rise now and it has made going to different countries much easier. Being a plus-size woman, sometimes traveling while plus-size can come with its own sets of questions & worries. However, plus-size travel groups are creating spaces for plus-size travelers to see the world without judgment or shame.
Plus size travel groups aren’t exactly a novel idea, however, through the power of social media, these travel groups are much more prominent and show no signs of slowing down. Check out the list of plus size travel groups to join in 2020.
