As a general rule, I pay for most of my travels from my own pocket, much preferring to enjoy and experience my travels through my own eyes without the interruption of work or requirements. However, on regular occasions, there is some crossover between work life and travels which results in articles being published on this blog.
As a Professional Photographer, I sometimes write about products/places etc that I have visited through my work. Although I will have received compensation for this work, any articles, thoughts or opinions post on this website are always my own opinion and are never influenced by outside providers. Should I not be happy or enjoy something, it will either not be written about on here or it will do so in an honest way. In the same way, as a Travel Blogger I do on occasion receive discounted or provided services for the point of inclusion in this blog – again, the same honesty applies here.
On the rare occasion any content has been provided by a third party you will always informed of this at the start of the relevant article.
As an affiliate, I only recommend products and services that I feel are of high quality and helpful to my readers. If it’s not something I personally know and love or have tried I won’t be talking about.
External links are often used in this site to direct you to further information/news regarding a particular subject. We accept no responsibility for the content of this links or any external sight and they are provided merely as an additional tool to help you in your travel planning.

From time to time, this website will offer the opportunity to compete in competitions to win prizes or free items.
