Enjoying the World as a Plus-size Traveler
World Footprints continues its foundational value of sharing the voices of all travelers and their unique experiences and inspiring stories. Today we walk in the footsteps of a plus-size traveler.
Plus-size travelers face challenges that aren’t generally considered—lack of appropriate accommodations, one-sized fits all robes that don’t fit larger bodies, zipline cables that may not support extra weight and other concerns.
“People need to see more plus-size people traveling so that they can see themselves as the reflection and want to go travel more.”Jeff Jenkins
Jeff Jenkins is the creative mind behind Chubby Diaries, a site dedicated to helping plus-size people travel the world. He joins World Footprints to share his experience as a plus-size traveler. Jeff also suggests how the travel industry can be better accommodating and why weight and size shouldn’t be a barrier to traveling the world.
Through Chubby Diaries, Jeff inspires and educates a community of travelers who are overlooked in the travel space.
