Disclosures & Disclaimers:

As is common in the travel industry, I receive complimentary travel or media rates at hotels, resorts and attractions. I disclose such offers in my posts as is required by Federal Trade Regulations. As a School of Journalism graduate from the University of Oregon, I strive to be impartial in reviewing properties, destinations, attractions and travel gear.

From travel socks to rolling duffel bags, products are sent to me for review. Not all products that I receive are reviewed here. Most of the travel apparel and gear that I receive has been given to me at no cost.

While I hope that you enjoy reading my reviews, I cannot be held responsible if you do not have the same experience with a property, destination, attraction or travel product.
