Hey there! We are Cazzy and Bradley, the travel fanatics behind Dream Big, Travel Far.
We started this blog back in 2016 as a way to help more type 1 diabetics and budget backpackers travel the world. We are certainly not rich, and we use all the tricks we can to help us get around the world and to see as many amazing places as possible.
We have no fixed address and like to consider ourselves digital nomads! This means we use WiFi to work and to keep ourselves in touch with our families. Oh yeah, and to run our blog!
Our aim is to visit every country on Earth! You can see how we are getting on by viewing our most recent blogs below.
We have tonnes of content that is designed to help you with any stage of the travel process as a type 1 diabetic, this ranges from posts on preparing to travel with diabetes, what it's like travelling with diabetes; our own traditional travel tips and experience on places we have been that we think you should visit.
Also, what motivates us and what inspired us to start this blog and to help motivate the fellow young Type 1 community to travel more. So take this time to catch up and read what we have said so far. Also please take the extra minute to say hello to everyone and share your thoughts with one another on the comments section below a blog post.
Our aim is to inspire, motivate and reassure as many young adults, just like ourselves, to go beyond their current comfort zone, to spread their wings and see places you have only ever dreamed of. We are always looking to save money to fund further adventures so we offer a wide range of budget tips and techniques to help you travel further on less.
Our biggest adventure so far is our 4 month trip around South America. We have provided detailed posts on what it’s like preparing for this adventure, what we got up to out there and most importantly how we overcame the challenges associated with travelling with Type 1 diabetes.
What are you waiting for .... Start exploring!
At the same time, we're all about having fun; so we combine this blog with both diabetic articles as well as entertaining and inspiring posts on our travel experiences.
Head over to the Diabetes Zone for an exclusive look at all of the specific content on travelling with diabetes or just keep on scrolling for a look at our most recent posts and our tales from afar!
