To My Readers
From time to time, I may accept sponsorships, advertising, and complementary trips or travel products to provide more material for my blog and to recoup some of my associated costs for labor, technology, hosting, etc. If and when I do, I will disclose that in any blog posts I write as a result. Links you see in the sidebar of my website are usually ads. I also monetize any travel guides I recommend on my Travel Guides page–but I’m very selective about what I recommend. Please remember you should always do your own research before making purchases from any website, including this one.

All advertising must be relevant for a solo travel audience.
The best way to publicize your product or service to my audience is for me to describe my personal experiences with it. Therefore, I do accept complementary hotel stays, tours, and other travel-related products and services for review. Any reviews resulting from comps will be 100% my own opinion and fully disclosed to my readers.
Contact me about any of these options or if you have questions about a broader partnership between my brand and yours.
