Living on the opposite side of the world from the place I call home, I have had many treks through airports that include long layovers and missed connecting flights, low blood sugars during turbulence, and many attempts at packing pump supplies that turned into a real life game of Tetris. I think anyone can attest to the fact that small things always tend to go wrong while travelling. With Type 1, though, there comes a little bit less room for error. How do you power through travelling with such high stakes? Over-plan, over-pack, and overcompensate.
