We are Bradley and Cazzy, the travel fanatics behind Dream Big, Travel Far. We started this blog in 2016 back when we were still in University one winter's evening. With a drink in hand, we had a dream.
A dream to share our travel experiences with the world, in the hope of helping of other couples to travel. As well as to inspire and motivate fellow type 1 diabetics that they can still live their dreams and overcome the challenges that this illness presents.
After graduating with degrees in Politics & Human Rights (Cazzy) and Economics (Bradley), we started travelling. It all started with a 4 month South America backpacking adventure in September 2016 and, since then, we haven't looked back!
Since then, we've planned trips that have taken us far.
We’ve crosses the rainforests and glaciers of South America; stormed the castles and beaches of Europe; and sampled the cultures and cuisines of countries all across Asia. And we won’t stop until we’ve been to EVERY country in the world.
Through our travels, this would make me the first female type 1 diabetic to travel to every country in the world. Which might not sound cool to you, but it certainly does to me!
We never wanted desk jobs, we are both too creative. And our dreams are too big for us to be told how we should live our lives. Rather, we want to live by our own terms and by our own schedules.
The nomadic lifestyle has swallowed us up and we now work and travel simultaneously wherever we choose. We’ve done things that, just 5 years ago, we only ever dreamt of doing. Such as sleeping in the Amazon Rainforest, catching the incredible sunrise at Torres Del Paine and driving a tuk tuk all across Sri Lanka.
Some of our favourite experiences so far include sailing around Halong Bay, watching the sunrise over the Taj Mahal, paragliding over mountains in Bolivia and surfing crystal blue waves in Bali. And you know what we love most of all? It’s the knowledge that the journey is far from over!
And along the way we hope to inspire at least a few other people to live their dreams and travel the world as well. In the same way that our favourite travel bloggers inspired us to begin our journey around the world.
We are certainly not trust fund babies and we don’t have a secret illegal business. We have worked really hard to find a way to earn money and design the lifestyle we love. So, if you are interested in seeing the world with us, then follow our adventures here on the blog.
Also, be sure to follow us on Instagram , Pinterest and Facebook, where we hang out almost every day. We love chatting to fellow travellers and type 1 diabetics, so don’t hesitate to comment on a post or drop us a message. We are happy to help you wherever we can.
