Hey Adventurer,

Do Extraordinary Things; That’s what this travel blog is all about.

Most adventurers are courageous, fearless, adrenaline-thriving, risk-taking people. That’s not me. I’m afraid of the dark, jumping from heights is perhaps, one of the stupidest things you could consider and the thought of eating anything “strange” is revolting.

Yet somehow I find the courage to: skydive, walk with lions, eat bugs and drink shots with real toes in them.

I travel the world, find the most extraordinary things out there, and do them. When I return home, I share it all here on my site.

Disclosures

Occasionally on this travel blog you may see me offer advertising spots to companies and work with sponsors. I do this because hosting this site is an expense. And one of the best ways to travel more is to spend less and save more. So while I enjoy writing, I do need to offset the cost of running this site so it’s not an ongoing expense.

All advertisers are clearly labeled as such. Just as individual television or radio networks don’t endorse their advertisers, neither do I. They help pay the bills.

But I also work with sponsors and other media. These relationships generally result in an exchange of services, products or trips for coverage on this site. When I engage in a sponsorship, I will always notate it in the post and the opinions are always my own.

I do not:

  • Accept payment to write whatever a brand tells me to write. Everything on this site is 100% my opinion.
  • Allow brands to write and publish their own content on this site. Every article you read is written by myself (or an unpaid, fellow blogger in the form of a guest post).
  • Work with sponsors I do not support.
Now that that’s out of the way…

My Promise You:

  • I’ll be honest and truthful all the time
  • I’ll respond to every genuine comment you post on my blog and YouTube site
  • I’ll respond to every genuine e-mail you write

Whether your adventures take you to the far corners of the globe, or to the treasures in your own backyard remember to Do Extraordinary Things.

I’ll see you out there…!
