Editorial Policy

Every piece we publish aims to provide an honest, unfiltered view of destinations from the perspective of someone who lives there. We rigorously vet the information provided by our contributors to ensure that it reflects the true nature of the experiences they describe. We believe that the heart of a location is best understood through the stories of its people, not through overly curated tourist lenses.

Source Verification

We uphold strict standards for source verification. Each submission—whether it’s an article, guide, or review—is thoroughly checked for accuracy. This includes confirming details with local sources, cross-referencing facts with established data, and whenever possible, having writers visit locations to ensure firsthand experience. Our goal is to maintain a high level of credibility and trust with our audience, providing them with reliable and current information.


Transparency is crucial in our operations. We are clear about our processes and open about our ownership and funding. While we may collaborate with businesses and tourism boards to bring you comprehensive guides and stories, these partnerships do not influence the editorial content. All sponsored content is clearly labeled as such, maintaining a distinct separation between our editorial and advertising segments.

Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity and inclusion are integral to our narrative. We strive to represent a wide array of voices and experiences within our content. This includes promoting writers and contributors from different backgrounds and cultures, and ensuring that our content is inclusive and reflective of the diverse world we live in. We believe that understanding and appreciating diversity is essential to truly experiencing a place like a local.

Corrections Policy

We are committed to accuracy and are prompt in addressing any errors in our content. If a mistake is identified, we immediately take steps to verify and correct the information. Corrections are noted clearly in the content, with transparency about what was changed and why. Feedback from our readers is always welcome, as it helps us to improve and maintain the integrity of our information.

Editorial Independence

Our editorial team operates independently, guided by the principles outlined in this policy. Decisions about what we publish are made without external influence from our advertisers or partners. Our editors and writers are encouraged to express their true viewpoints, even if those opinions challenge popular perceptions or potential business interests.
