Disclosure! Schmoclosure! Guess you don’t need to ask what we think about the Federal Trade Commission guide on disclosure. We didn’t have a disclosure page on our old website. Not that we trying to pull the wool over your eyes, we wouldn’t do that– karma would surely get us, plus- we just aren’t that way! We had to mention each and every time we wrote a post whether or not we received anything. How BORING, time consuming and like it makes any difference anyway. From now on we will just link to this page and be done.
We think it goes without saying the experiences described on our blog/website are our own or those of the author. We would NEVER recommend a hotel, destination, activity, restaurant or anything for that matter where we think you would not have a similar experience to ours. Whether it was comped, discounted or we paid for it, our opinions and experiences are our own. We hope they inspire you to travel. We have no reason to believe you will find your experience different than ours because of any sort of compensation.

Not that there is anything wrong with gettin’ busy w/member of the story
You can assume we receive upgrades, complimentary or reduced rates at hotels and for sightseeing.
We wish! We need to work on this one.

We are travel consultants and would appreciate your business but if you choose not to book your travel arrangements with us, we still wish you safe and happy travel.
