Viva Veltoro is a personal blog, written and edited by me (Ruth), along with my team of contributing writers. I will do my best to bring you honest, fair information about products, places, and attractions, but please remember that everyone is different and what works for me and my family may not work for you and yours. The same is true for contributors to this blog. This blog may accept forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions, or other forms of compensation. However, we will always give an honest opinion and it will not be influenced in any way, shape, or form by the compensation received. If we have been compensated in any way it will be disclosed on that individual post.
