We took a bus from Tallinn to Tartu, Estonia. My blood sugar was low and high all day.
One of the stranger days we've had on this trip so far. Patarei prison is beyond strange, and totally unforgettable.
Our second day in Tallinn was spent relaxing in the morning, then heading out in the afternoon for some shopping and some more walking around Old Town
We arrived by ferry from the Åland Islands this morning and walked around Old Town all day. It's an amazing medieval place, really.
We checked out of our hotel at noon, but our ferry wasn't leaving until 1:00 am. So we spent a day goofing around Mariehamn and Bomarsund.
Sunday in Mariehamn is a quiet time indeed. We took the opportunity to do laundry and relax, and some self-catering.
We took an early-morning ferry from Stockholm to the town of Mariehamn in the Åland Islands between Sweden and mainland Finland.
We spent all day walking around Gamla Stan and some of the surrounding islands of Stockholm, Sweden. My BG was up and down but mostly good.
I usually don't have good blood sugars while flying on planes, but I do try.
I tried to pack light for my trip to Europe, but three months in winter made it a challenge. This is my list, with photos and explanations.
I got very high blood sugar after a normal breakfast and a normal shot of Humalog, and I have no idea why and I didn't learn anything from it.
My first impressions upon ordering my own lightweight Scrubba laundry wash bag. The air valve is broken but the bag works well otherwise.
A record of me watching the Atlanta Falcons NFL games on Game Pass, available to fans that are outside of America.
I had sixteen boxes of OneTouch Ultra strips for my three-month Europe trip, so I had to break them down into a compact size.
I paid eDreams for airline tickets but didn't actually get any. I had to dispute the charge with my credit card company.
Watch this video of my blood sugars and general progress walking several miles through Osaka, Japan with type 1 diabetes.
Despite a BG of 350 (!), I walked along the entire Imazatosuji subway line. This video shows my progress and BG readings along the way.
My second Osaka walk was from one end of the Yotsubashi line to the other. Watch this video to see the experience.
I monitored my BG carefully as I walked along this train line. Watch this video for my progress, BG readings, and impressions along the way.
My song/video tribute to having good BG readings. Improve your life in myriad unexpected ways!
