Disclosures for the content of this Travel Blog

A disclosure for the content on this blog: This blog is not primarily financially driven. I blog because I love to share my travels and tips with all of you. That said, beginning December 1, 2009, the FTC requires bloggers to provide disclosures whenever there could be hidden interests or unspoken biases related to recommendations. First and foremost: I am an adventurous traveller and  have a blog because it’s I want to inspire people to do the same, not because it makes me rich. Second, the less obvious: Per the FTC rules, if I interview someone and they grab the bill for lunch, I would need to specify this. If someone gives me a sweet hat with their name on it and I wear it in a photo, same deal. Disclaimers out the wazoo! This is both mind-numbingly tedious for me and a constant distractor for you, the lovely readers. Sadly, these rules weren’t meant to be broken. To cover my tush and preserve your reading experience, please assume that, for every recommendation, link, and product I use, the following all hold true:
