Hello my name is Peter. I am 14 years old. I enjoy snowboarding, mountain biking, surfing, rockclimbing, archery and pretty much anything outdoors. I am in the 9th grade this year, studying while we travel, using the ILC (Independant Learning Center) online curriculum. I am also learning about other countries, cultures and religions while we travel.
About eight months ago I was diagnosed with type one diabetes. This was a real shock to all of us and we were worried that our lives would never be the same. However I have learned to manage my blood glucose levels allowing me to carry on with my active lifestyle, climbing mountains over 10,000 feet tall, surfing, snowboarding and many other awesome family adventures!
I am currently learning videography so I can help document our adventures and contribute to our family blog. I will also be contributing some posts from time to time about family adventures, sports and my experiences traveling with type1 diabetes. My long term goal is to become a RCMP officer.
