Joaquim Miro, who runs a cool website called The Alternative Ways, was kind enough to reach out to me and interview me about my life traveling the world with diabetes. You can read the interview here.
The Alternative Ways is a travel website that Joaquim started to help people travel as a lifestyle – a goal I can get behind. Joaquim is not a diabetic, but his brother, father, and a close friend are, so he got curious about how to help people with diabetes who want to travel like he does. He found me lurking around online like I do and thought I might be able to help.
I hope I have; Joaquim asked great questions and I gave my responses based on my many years and many countries of travel with diabetes. As I say in the interview, it hasn’t always gone perfectly smoothly but that isn’t the point. The point is, you can go anywhere with diabetes! I appreciate Joaquim’s comments on his page: “I have to say I have rarely read answers to my questions that were so practical, entertaining and inspiring.”
Thanks a lot to Joaquim Miro for helping T1Ds learn how to hit the road with a healthy and constructive attitude. If you’ve got a few minutes please read the interview and let me know what you think. Comments appreciated – we’re all in this together and I want to know your thoughts!
