  1. Financial Relationships: Our travel blog and podcast may contain affiliate links or sponsored content.  This means that when you click on certain links or make a purchase through them, we may earn a commission at no additional cost to you. Please note that we only recommend products, services, destinations, and experiences that we genuinely believe in and have personally used or experienced.

  2. Personal Expenses: We fund the majority of our travel experiences mentioned on this website ourselves. While we occasionally receive complimentary travel or discounted rates, it is important to understand that our opinions remain unbiased, and we do not guarantee positive coverage for sponsored experiences.

  3. Accuracy and Updates: We strive to provide accurate and up-to-date information. However, travel-related details such as prices, availability, policies, and operating hours can change without our knowledge. Therefore, we strongly advise you to verify the information independently before making any bookings or decisions based on our content. If you find anything on this website that isn’t accurate, please let us know and we will update it.

These affiliate links do not affect the price you pay for the products or services. We will never recommend or link to anything that we have not personally used and loved. 

  7. Reviews and Media Rates: Occasionally, we receive complimentary products, services, or experiences for review purposes. We disclose any such arrangements within the corresponding article. Our reviews are always honest, unbiased, and based on our genuine experiences, whether paid or self-funded.

  8. Advertising: In order to cover the operational costs of this website and associated expenses, we use affiliate links and sponsored content. However, we are not responsible for the products, services, or information provided by the companies. That’s why we only link to things we use and have loved and if that stops being the case we will not continue to place new affiliate links to them.
