EMBEDDED CONTENT & HYPERLINKS
External links are sometimes used on this site to direct you to further information regarding a particular topic.

As a travel blogger, I always strive to provide the best tips and recommendations to assist you with your travels. In doing so, I sometimes include affiliate links to other websites that provide certain products or services relating to traveling. I only do this when I genuinely believe a brand’s products or services are useful and in alignment with the interests of this travel community.
In particular, this site is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program that links directly to Amazon products. As is the case with all other affiliate links in my website content, I only recommend products and services that I find useful for like-minded travelers. Though I may be compensated if you choose to utilize the links and make purchases linking from this content, you are in no way obligated to click on any link or buy any products that are advertised.
Our affiliate partners may use tracking information and cookies to track sales you make as a result of clicking on the links. I may earn commission on the sales of such products or services.
