Press Trips

We accept familiarization (or press) trips if the experience will be of interest and useful for our readers.

Here are a few stipulations on press trips:

  1. We will not accept payment for press trips.
  2. We will not pay for press trips, including transportation and meals.
  3. We are a family of three and we always travel together. Our articles always cover the perspective of a traveling family.
  4. We maintain complete control of content. If something was good, bad, fantastic or unacceptable we’ll write that. Providing a press trip is no guarantee of a positive review.
