Cartegena, Colombia Girls Trip

Cartagena, Colombia and Pineapples

In 2017, I went on my first solo international trip to Colombia and fell in love with the country. I am super excited to announce the first trip of 2020. I will be headed to Cartegena, Colombia and I would like to bring new friends along with me.

Who is this trip for? This trip is for my sisters who identify as a PLUS-SIZE woman.

Why create a trip for plus size women? I want to share my love of traveling with women who look like me. I think that this will create a fun bonding experience with people who understand what it feels to travel as a plus-size woman.
