To date, this is the longest and most open-ended trip I’ve ever taken. Follow the nearly year-long backpacking voyage through the friendly and unbelievably beautiful countries of Southeast Asia below. On a trip this long you can’t carry all the diabetes supplies you’ll need so you have to learn how to stock up on the way. This was a great crash course in long-term travel with diabetes and it taught me that through the kindliness of strangers and your own ingenuity, you’ll always find what you need on the road. Dive into some of the most welcoming and culturally varied places in the world: Taiwan, Malaysia, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam.

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
