Travel with Type 1 Diabetes.

Somehow we made it to the end of the school year!

I've just realised something about the end of the school year here in the Southern Hemisphere - and just realised why it is so much more insane!

Our school year essentially starts at the end of January or beginning of February - and goes through until early to mid December.

This, of course, means that the last term of school is also the lead up to Christmas. It is a crazy time of the year. Not only are we dealing with school functions, graduations, presentation ceremonies etc, but we're also dealing with Christmas parties, organising presents and getting ready for our family Christmas dinner or lunch!

Why have I never thought of that before? It would be sooooo much easier to finish the school year in the middle of the year!

Okay everyone - let's move north!

Well, I can dream!

But speaking of moving north (although not "moving" - just "heading") - the 2 kids and I are heading north, to Canada, early in the New Year and we CAN'T WAIT!

So this post is about Travel with T1D.

As with everything T1D related - travel means planning - and LOTS of it!

Here is a Checklist I have devised for use when planning a trip!

* DO NOT click on the "Submit" button - this check list is just to help you prepare for your trip.

One of the things we're really excited about is joining Sean and Mollie Busby and their fantastic organisation for a ski-snowboard camp!

So, lots to do!
