Interview with Lauren & Adrienne from The Plus Sized Globetrotter!

Did you know there’s a podcast for plus-size travelers?

The Plus Sized Globetrotter was started by travel buddies Adrienne Alwag and Lauren Suarez and is currently available on iTunes. Adrienne’s mother worked at an airline, so she grew up traveling, and Lauren works as an Expedia expert in Maui hotels.

It was my first taste of the travel life, and I had dreamed about this day forever!

As the trip approached, doubt and fear began to creep into my mind. Most of the stories I had heard about heavier people flying were terrifying.
