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 my readers can make informed travel choices. The books I rewiew 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; however some products were sent to me so that I could properly test, evaluate and review them.
