FTC disclosure

I’ve blogged about my travel for years without using it to make money in any way. However, travel is expensive, so I’ve decided that if there is a way to use this website to help off-set a trip or some sweet camera without requiring me to be less opinionated, I might sign on to that.

Here’s what that means for you:

The views and opinions expressed are purely my own

I have pretty strong opinions about most things. Everything on this web site represents my opinion of the destination, product, service, etc. regardless of whether I receive a commission, freebie, or some other special deal related to it. If I said it was great, then I really thought it was great.

If I publish a guest post or sponsored post, it will be clearly identified as such. But even then it will be consistent with my values and opinions or it won’t be published.

I’ll let you know if I got a special deal

I will disclose in each post if I got a trip or piece of gear for free or at a reduced price that would not be available to the general public. You need to know that because it is really hard to judge the true value of something when you didn’t pay for it yourself.

Links to TripAdvisor may be a source of income for me

I am now using affiliate links to send potential customers to TripAdvisor. This means that – in the future – your clicking on an identified TripAdvisor link will take you to TripAdvisor and provide me with a small commission (at no extra cost to you) if you go on to link to one of TripAdvisor’s booking sites. I pretty much never book a hotel without looking at TripAdvisor, so this is a logical connection for my website to make. I suggest you do the same and I would greatly appreciate your using one of my links to do so.

At this time I do not earn a commission from other links

All other links are provided for your further enlightenment and/or convenience.
