This is the very first diabetes inspiration project ever done on 70-130.com, and the original reason I created this website. I traveled to 26 places in and around Osaka from A to Z and checked my blood sugar at each place. If my reading wasn’t between 70 and 130 I would wait until it was or return to the spot later and try again. Here’s the story of each location, why I chose it, and how/whether I got my intended blood sugar readings. Also check out the short compilation video I made of all 26 places when I finished. There’s a lot of fun to be had out there, even with a simple idea like this!

Diabetes is getting cured. JDRF, the leading global T1D research organization, is getting closer... but they need donations to continue.

What is 70-130.com?
The world is worth exploring, and Type 1 diabetes doesn't have to stop anyone from enjoying the rich experiences of travel. On 70-130 you'll find fun but honest travelogues and photos from my journeys around the world with T1D and get tips for safely hitting the road, with diabetes supplies and without fear.
Traveling with diabetes is rarely easy but it's always worth it. 70-130 (named for my elusive target blood sugar range) exists to inspire others to break through whatever they feel is holding them back.
Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to connect with me on social media too. I want to hear about your own diabetes experiences! —Jeremy
