Alright, so you want to know about the editorial policy of this website. Well, here it goes.
Integrity and disclaimer
The majority of the content on this site are curated as a result of my journalism work while others are as a result of independent travel. For assignments, I am sometimes fully hosted, partially supported and occasionally allowed expenses. As the content is not exclusive to Culture Explorer, I haven’t indicated the instances where I’ve been a guest. Neither have I explicitly specified when I’ve been an independent traveller as it’s not always appropriate or integral to the story.
Where a post is exclusively for Culture Explorer however, this is made explicit in the first instance of publication. I may write about some aspect of the trip months or perhaps years after the first post and in this case, I feel that it’s no longer relevant to make an explicit declaration. Needless to say, my opinions are my own and do not reflect that of my host.
There are no paid-for links on this website but there are affiliate links. That is to say, if you do buy something through an affiliate link, which doesn’t cost you anything more, I will gain a small commission which helps to keep this site ticking along.
Any sponsored content on the site are clearly marked as such, as indeed will any other affiliation when relevant.
For PRs and marketeers
This website is run in conjunction with In Pursuit of Food and Amateur Wine, which means that, when relevant, there’s a certain amount of information sharing between the websites. That is, the relevant information gets re-appropriated to In Pursuit of Food and Amateur Wine.
What does this mean in reality?
For example, I may go on a trip for wine. All of the relevant information about the wine region and wineries would go up on Amateur Wine. We’ll perhaps visit a quaint little restaurant somewhere in the country so that will go on In Pursuit of Food. And finally, I might spot some instance of quirkiness in a location and write about that on Culture Explorer. The output of the content might span months according to an editorial schedule and to take into account of other, more timely, stories. But it paints more or less a whole picture.
If it sounds like it works for you too, you can find all the ways of getting in touch with me on my contact page.
