i am staying on the central coast, about an hour north of sydney - it's very beautiful here, and i am looking forward to doing lots of exploring in the local area...
before i left i whipped up a video for you all about what i packed for this trip - there's quite a bit, but given i'm staying for 6 months, i think it's justified. it was pretty tricky to know what to take, so i've attached at the bottom of this post a list of everything i took, so then you have a list if you need to go anywhere :)
here's the aforementioned packing list, for anyone with diabetes or an insulin pump. you can see the quantity i took with me in the video, so i haven't listed them here - but most people need a different quantity of everything anyway. i always take a 10% extra lot of everything as a sort of insurance policy, or just in case. and i always take a 2 week supply in my carryon luggage (which is often my entire supply for the trip!).
packing list for an insulin pump:
spare tester with test strips & lancets
insulin for pump
insulin for injector
needles for injectors
spare belt clip
medic alert bracelet/necklace
