Disclosures and Disclaimers
The Financial and Legal Stuff

We love to travel, and 2020 was supposed to be a big travel year for us. Like the rest of you, that didn't happen. 2021 hasn't been so good either!

We're still dreaming about travel, reading about new destinations, and making (tentative) plans for the future. We hope all of you are well and staying safe... and that you find some inspiration here for YOUR future travels.

Let's hope we can all be traveling again in 2022! 

Disclosures and disclaimers? How boring! But they are necessary...

When you visit this web site, we hope you find browsing and reading it both a learning experience and a pleasure.... whether you're planning to travel or you're an armchair traveler.

We ONLY write about places we've been to and things we've done.... There is none of that "buy a travel article for your website" thing here. (Although, as you will read elsewhere, I did WRITE about our experiences for that kind of an enterprise for about a year.)

We want to provide a place for travelers to read about travel with "no strings attached".

We don't want sponsors that we "must" promote, though if we have had a good experience with a hotel or a tour company, we feel comfortable telling you about that. We may eventually bundle some of our tips into an e-book, but really, it's all free for you to find on our website.

We even provide a way for you to do a Google search of our pages!

Let's be honest, though, we do want to make money from the site to help keep us traveling... so... now to those pesky disclosures and disclaimers... let us explain how this happens.

Disclosures and Disclaimers
About Compensation

  • Ads - You will see ads on many pages, either in boxes on the page or as double underlines in our content. For most of these ads, we are paid a small fee when a reader chooses to visit an advertiser.
          We cannot choose which ads these companies show on our website. They are supposed to be relevant to the content of that page, but sometimes, we wonder, as you must, what those "spiders" are thinking!
          We really do appreciate your patience with these ads... and most especially your patronage of our site in spite of them! Thank you.
  • Affiliate Programs - You will find a few links to companies who offer goods or services that could benefit readers of this website. When a reader places an order using a link on this website, we receive a small commission.
          Note:
          We try to be careful about which companies we affiliate with.
          We try to choose only companies that have good "credentials" and that we feel we, and you, can trust...

    BUT... you must always make that decision for yourself.


Disclosures and Disclaimers About Advice

Travel Advice

  • Itineraries, when we include them, are itineraries we have used on our trips.
  •  Advice is as current as we can make it.... on the day we write it!!
  • We try to keep up with all the changes in the world, but we cannot be responsible if things are different when you are traveling.
  • Our philosophy, and what we advocate, is to stay on top of the news and go with the flow... that's what travelers do. You need to think for yourself... and be responsible for yourself. No one else can do it.

Medical Advice

  • We are not licensed medical practitioners. Although we give tips and explanations about Pepto-Bismol and malaria pills and travel vaccinations...
  • Nothing on this site should be construed as medical advice.
  • We cannot give medical advice in response to private e-mails. We always say you should consult with a travel medicine doctor or your own physician if you want advice on vaccinations or medications for travel.


A Few More Disclosures and Disclaimers

  • Endorsements - We post those ads, and we use their services, but that does not mean that we "endorse" them. We have tried to choose them carefully, but we want to stay independent. We will tell you if we've had a good experience, then you must choose for yourself.
  • Gratitude - We are most grateful to readers who return to this website to plan their trips, get their airline tickets, book their hotels and rental cars or order travel gear and books.
          We always hope that our travels can inspire you... whether you want to travel yourself or just read about it from the comfort of your armchair.
