Cazzy Magennis

Hello world! I am Cazzy and I am the type 1 diabetic half of Dream Big travel far! I met Bradley in my second year of University and I have been torturing him ever since. He's my best friend, he inspired me to follow my  travel dreams, he motivates me to keep going when I am finding things tough and he reassures me everything is going to be okay, and without him I would not be on this journey I am today. My life with diabetes would be so much harder without him, and I can't wait to travel the world with him!

That brings me to why this blog is so important to me. I have three things I want to achieve (which were inspired by Bradley's role in my diabetes), and that's to inspire, motivate and reassure all my fellow diabetics that despite the hard times, and the down days, we can still achieve everything we want to in life, whether that be travelling to anywhere in the world, or becoming a doctor or scientist, whatever it is. I want to show you how I manage my diabetes and travelling to hopefully give you the tools to do it too. I want us as a community to not feel excluded by the rest of the world, yes having diabetes might mean a little more preparation, but it doesn't stop us from taking on the adventures non-diabetics can do, so that is how this site has been designed, I am here to inspire you to do it, and then we can join in on the fun with everyone else. There is nothing Bradley will do that I can't!

I hope you find it reassuring hearing to know travelling with a non-diabetic isn't a burden, it doesn't make you any less able, and I hope he inspires you the way he has me!

I am more than happy to provide a listening ear, or offer any advice on experiences I have taken, so do not hesitate to contact me. I love hearing and meeting other diabetics and their stories, and I want to build a community that can take on the world together!

So...let's dream big and travel far (Really far)!
