A long-term diabetes travelogue that really tells it like it is! This is an exhaustive, day-by-day account of a four-plus month backpacking odyssey through some of the lesser-known parts of Europe. Read about the World Heritage Sites, historical areas, trains, guesthouses, and people I encountered on the road with my travel partner Masayo as well as every meal, insulin shot, and blood sugar check. The deliriously fun cold-weather voyage took us through the gorgeous sites and palpable history of Sweden, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Albania, Montenegro, and Norway.

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
