Welcome! If you’ve landed here, it means you’re interested in finding out if I get paid to write any of the information and reviews you see on this blog.
The short answer is no. No one is helping to fund this little project of mine except me. I write because I love to and sharing the tales of our adventures is simply something I enjoy doing.
I choose all the content you see on this blog. If I review a product or destination it’s because I genuinely found it useful or enjoyable and think you might, too.
On occasion, I may receive a free sample to review, but this in no way obliges me to write anything but my honest opinion. (I'll note any compensation I receive at the bottom of each applicable post so there won't be any guessing.)
Remember: I don’t receive any perk if you buy these products, too. Think of it as me sharing information with you about something I find useful, much as I would were we friends talking face to face.
That’s my version in plain English, but you can also read the “official” policy here:
