Everything on this site is based on my personal travel experiences. I don’t allow guest posts or outside/sponsored content. I try really hard to make sure everything is accurate as I’m writing, and I try to keep posts updated, but things change: prices go up; places close; opening hours change; hotels change their policies. Please don’t book a trip based solely on anything you find on this site! If I did an activity two years ago, there’s no guarantee it’s still taking place.
If you find anything on this website that isn’t accurate, please let me know and I’ll fix it immediately!
We paid for the vast majority of trips, tours, activities and hotels mentioned in the blog. When I do accept free travel or a media rate, it is done without any expectation of positive coverage on the part of the sponsoring organization. I’m honest about everything. If my family loves a destination, hotel or activity, I’ll tell you why. But that’s NOT a guarantee that your family will love it too! Every family is different.
If you see advertising here, I’m not responsible for those companies, anything they do, or any information they provide. If you click through and something goes wrong, that’s between you and them.
I may have affiliate links in my posts. That means that if you click through and book or purchase, I’ll make a few dollars. That doesn’t increase your costs at all. I never recommend anything because I could make money from it. That’s not fair to you. But if a company wants to pay me simply because you book through its site, I’ll take the money.
