Yeah, I was gonna say that you looked good. But then you would think that I had a man crush on you, then you'd be emailing me all the time, then you'd want me to come visit when Amanda was away, then we would prolly get drunk on tequila, then we'd hit the pool, well you get the point...

What a surprise to pick up my magazine and see one of my most motivated patients on the cover! I don't remember if you told me of your plans when you started your pump or not. Anyway, sorry I am getting in on this so late but will be following your trip from the UK. Cindy

My nineteen year old son was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes two weeks before he started college. So far he is doing great managing his diabetes. He is not using a pump yet. His two older brothers have travelled like this, but I have been concerned he would not be able to have the same opportunities. Thank you for dispelling that myth! Is there some way we could contact you when he is ready to have such an adventure? The article was great but sharing your adventures with diabetes, would be even more helpful. I am only a blogger because my eldest son is now in Bolivia. greginbolivia.blogspot.com
Thank you for your article and the photography is great!
