What Does It All Mean?

Occasionally I partner with tourism boards and brands to share stories about destinations, products, or services. Sometimes I receive compensation as part of these partnerships. This can be in the form of cash, free gear, flights, accommodation, activities, etc.

Despite that, I always try my very best to give you an unbiased account of my experiences. No one tells me what to write about.

Every company or country I work with understands that what I publish on this blog will be my honest opinion.

If they have a problem with this policy, we don’t work together.

You’ll occasionally find affiliate links throughout the site too. So while the price of a product is the same for you either way, I receive a tiny commission if you buy after clicking my link.

These help me travel longer & keep this blog running.

I would never endorse a product or service I didn’t actually believe in.

Reader trust is much more important to me than cash or free stuff.

That said, beginning December 1, 2009, the FTC requires bloggers to provide disclosures whenever there could be hidden interests or unspoken biases related to recommendations. Adding disclaimers all over this blog would be tedious and distracting.

So to cover my butt and preserve your reading experience, please assume that, for every recommendation, link, and product I use, the following all hold true:
