Behind the scenes at 70-130.com

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!
