Embedded Content & Hyperlinks

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites acts in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website. Hence, this means that websites may collect data, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that content if you have an account and are logged into that website.

External links are sometimes used on this site to direct you to further information regarding a particular topic. We accept no responsibility for the content in these links, as they are solely provided as an additional resource. When you choose to access these links, we encourage you to carefully read the privacy statements of each website.

Affiliate Links

As a travel blogger I always try 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.
