You’ve heard the stories, read the memoirs, and seen the movies. They make it look and sound easy to “transcend”. To become enlightened by travel. Let’s be honest, you will still be you upon your return home. With that said, travel can be a transformative experience. But it comes in subtle and unexpected ways. If you are traveling on a journey of personal growth, there are some basic principles you can keep in mind to help gain the meaningful experiences you seek.
Traveling with Diabetes! Woo-hoo!!! I want to preface this post by saying that I am a type I diabetic, and diabetes is a major part of my life. BUT, I do not identify myself as such.
Sometimes people are even surprised to learn, after knowing me for a while, that I have diabetes. I strongly believe that if I am in control of my diabetes, it doesn’t have to be in control of me. Yay! I don’t want to be known as “the girl with diabetes”. I would rather be recognized for my winning personality. Insert big cheesy teethy smile here. I am also a lot of other things, I am a sister, daughter and friend, an artist, vegetarian, and nature-lover. And now a wander-lusting world-traveler.
