Occasionally I partner with travel brands, tourism boards and companies to share stories about destinations, products, services and various other topics. I usually receive a compensation as part of these partnerships. These can be in the form of cash, credits, flights, accommodation, activities or something similiar.

Despite these partnerships, I will always give you an honest and unbiased account of my experiences.

The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely my own. Nothing I post or write will go against my values of sustainable and ethical traveling. I will never work with a company that I do not believe in or would not use myself.


Affiliate links

Occasionally, I include affiliate links in posts where I recommend specific hotels, tours, gear or activities. If you purchase something through one of my affiliate links, I receive a small commission at no extra cost to you. You will not pay more by clicking through to the link. 

Examples of affiliate programs I use are Booking.com, GetYourGuide and 12Go Asia.

These affiliate partnerships help me travel for longer. Therefore I can offer you more useful travel information and inspiring stories about amazing locations. Furthermore it covers the costs of this blog. Furthermore it ensures that I can make investments that will improve your experience on this website.
