I recently went on a cruise. I hadn't been on one since before I was diagnosed with diabetes. I was worried about my glucose control with all of those all you can eat buffets and the multitude of free desserts and baked goods. To my surprise, my control was better than normal. Part of the reason was of course being careful. But I think most of it was just the increased activity. Just walking from one end of the ship to the other was a substantial distance. Add in walking and climbing around the ports. Take it from me: You can take a cruise and safely enjoy it thoroughly.

I had the same trepidations on my first camping trip. I was a bit worried and it turned out great. Now I am preparing for a 2 month sojourn across this great country of ours and I am getting excited. I won't be doing it until next year, so the planning has begun. Yes! We can travel, we can have fun! Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

So glad you enjoyed yourself and had a happy and healthy time.

I have never been on a boat and just afraid to have a panic attack and make a fool of myself more than I do when I'm not on a boat.
