Traveling anywhere with diabetes is possible. It just might take some specific preparation and understanding. Find your destination here and get some tips for going there and handling diabetes. I’ve been all over the world and learned a lot of T1D travel lessons the hard way. (Rule #1: All food everywhere is thicker in carbs than you think. Sigh.) Get insights into local food, people, and pharmacies here, including short language lessons for communicating about diabetes and also general rules for traveling with diabetes gear and refreshing your supply even in the unlikeliest of places. And please leave a comment about your trip – I’d love to hear about where you’re planning to visit!

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
