Carnival Mask from BrazilI've blogged in the past about some of my travel adventures and not allowing diabetes to stop me from pursuing my exploration of our big blue marble, but what came across my screen today about Bridget McNulty,  from South Africa and her partner Mark Peddle just blew me away.   They are doing what I've always dreamed of doing, but I don't have the time / money to do it. 

Bridget was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes when she was 25, back in 2007 and uses Apidra and Lantus to control her diabetes, and with A1C's under 6% - she is doing very well!

Over the next nine months they are going to be traveling the globe, promoting diabetes and the fact that it doesn't have to stop you from doing whatever you want.  Most of you know that I have never let diabetes hold me back, in fact; I think having diabetes has made me do things that I would never think of doing!  To me, life is too short, to experience as much as you can in whatever time I have, I want to do it!!  Again, within reason of money and time (ahhh - to have a rich auntie or sponsor ... in my dreams LOL).

During the next four months, they are touring the Asian continent and then making their way to Central and South America, returning back to South Africa for the .... Soccer World Cup (gotta love that!) in June 2010.

To follow their journey, thru' blogs, vlogs, check out Just The Planet.  You never know, maybe this will get your travel juices going, and the next thing we'll know is you'll be blogging about your adventures online to the world as well!

As Bridget says, and I quote - "diabetes is a condition that can be dealt with, no matter where in the world you are."  She took the words right out of my mouth, and oh, don't forget to pack double the amount of supplies you think you'll need in your globe trotting despite the hassle of lugging it around (been there, done that LOL).
