The bugcrew cannot claim to have visited every country or interesting city in the world but we have seen a lot over the last 15 years, initially as travel photojournalists and later as obsessive travelers, constantly in search of the next best place.
What we offer bugvisitors is destination photos and critiques based 90% on personal experience, with some pictures and information provided by friends and family.
We do update photos and check our facts on the web, of course, along with absorbing other traveler’s views as we are aware that every traveler is in their own experience bubble that may be distorted by random events, local crises or personal experiences.
For example we still regard Peru as being one of the world’s best tourist destinations even though we got sick there for a few days (avoid the ceviche! ) and then had a handful of attempted thefts – one of them successful. It’s still a fantastically colourful and must-see country!
Under no circumstances do we falsely promote anything on bugbog for financial gain, be it a hotel, a city or a service. We tell things as we find them, good, bad or ugly, as negative reviews make the positives more credible. We do, of course, have sponsors that promote their services but we try to ensure their banners are reality-based!
One more thing. . . we are a small team and believe in spending real time in a worthwhile place, we don’t just flash in and out and check a box. As a result we can’t visit a lot of destinations every year, so some photos are a little old.
But even if we cannot update the images we can update the information to a degree by collating views and reviews from a circle of contacts. Yes, that means you! If you have useful destination comments or appropriate, good quality photos, please share them with us!
