I'm Chantel, the plus size, queer, snack-loving, digital storyteller for the travel blog, Voyaging Vagabond. When I'm not eating pizza, I'm off fabulously hopping the globe as an advocate for diversity in travel and body positivity. Teamed with my trusty 44L backpack, my travels have taken me around the world where I spread travel advice, self-love, body confidence, and female empowerment like confetti along the way.
