As is standard in the industry, I often accept free or discounted travel services to help fully research and cover a destination. My reviews, comments and recommendations are not influenced by this practice. When I recommend a property, service or attraction I do so based on the level of access, management attitude and appropriateness for my readers. My goal is to describe the access so our readers can make informed travel choices. The books reviewed on my blog were generally sent to me for that purpose by the publisher or author. I never accept cash for the review or mention of a product or service on my blog; however some products were sent to me so that I could properly test, evaluate and review them.
