Occasionally we partner with tourism boards and brands to share stories about destinations, products, or services. Sometimes we even receive compensation as part of these partnerships. This can be in the form of cash, free gear, flights, accommodation, activities, etc.
Despite that, we always try our very best to give you an unbiased account of our experiences. No one tells us what to write about or how to write about it.
Every company or country we work with understands that what we publish on this blog will be our 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, we receive a tiny commission if you buy after clicking our link. These help us travel longer & keep this blog running.
We would never endorse a product or service we didn’t actually believe in.
Reader trust is much more important to us 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.
Now if we jump out of a plane in Namibia for free, I would need to specify this. The same holds true if I use an affiliate link when telling you about my favorite photography gear. Adding disclaimers all over this blog would be tedious and distracting.

So while the price of a product is the same for you either way, we receive a small commission if you buy something after clicking my link. These affiliate partnerships help us travel longer & keep this blog running.
