The Serious Stuff

I believe in being open and honest in all aspects of my life – including here on the blog.  I love writing, and wish I could travel and write about it forever and not have to worry about earning a living!  Unfortunately that isn’t possible, but I am still following my dream of being a travel writer.

In order to earn some money from the blog, sometimes in my posts I will place affiliate links to other websites which I use and recommend.  This affiliate link means that if you make a purchase from that website after clicking through from Tales of a Backpacker, I will get a small commission from the company, at no extra cost to you.

Sometimes I receive complimentary products, services or hotel stays that I will write a review for.  On such review posts I will clearly state that I did not pay for the product, or I was invited as a guest and received something complimentary.  This will not affect how I write about the product or service I have received, I will always give my honest opinion and would NEVER recommend a product I have not enjoyed or do not like.  I choose to write about experiences that I enjoy and would recommend to others, so you can be sure that anything that appears on the site is something that I have used myself or that I have been recommended by my friends or family, and trust that this will be useful information to pass on.

Occasionally you will find ads on Tales of a Backpacker, but again, these are only for products which I believe will be useful to my readers and that I recommend using.

If I choose to write a sponsored post, I will clearly state that it is sponsored.  Sponsorship by companies could include a link to their website, or a review or recommendation of a product or service.  I only work with companies that I believe have excellent products that will be useful to my readers or that provide services that I would recommend to my friends.

Thank you for joining me on my journey to discover the world!  I wish you all safe and happy travels!
