Privacy Policy

While it would be nice to believe that the internet is a joyous land of sunshine and rainbows where a travel community of like-minded humans can collaborate freely, the reality is not so. This is the part of the Website that has to be here by law so that I don’t get in trouble for trying to bring you the best travel blog experience that I can.

I really do hope that you enjoy engaging with my opinions, tips, and travel experiences, but please be aware that that is all they are, my own views.

I am not liable for errors, omissions, or changes to availability of this information.  

Similarly, this Site does not provide professional medical, legal, or other advice, and is not responsible for any losses, injuries, or damages that arise from the display or use of this information.
