Hi, we are Peter and Melissa. The two halves that make up the whole of The Portly Passengers. We wanted to start this blog to build a community for individuals who love to travel or have a desire to travel but are afraid of the social expectations of weight requirements in life. Being fat has a negative connotation to it, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy life in the plus size.
Traveling is no different. There will be weight restrictions and limits, there will be disappointments and extra charges, but there will be tons of memories and love along the way. We hope you join us for this crazy ride.
Below are some explanations to our website and what to expect in the next few weeks as we build a relationship with our followers. Please don’t forget to subscribe and follow us for the latest updates. (We are on Facebook and Instagram.)
For all of our visited locations, you can find them on the map page.
Our Map has the places that we have explored together.
Maggie’s Map has the places that we have found to be extremely dog-friendly.
We have separate maps as well since sometimes we can’t always travel together.
