Happy New Year! And a very important post at the start of 2015

Dear Reader, we wish you a wonderful 2015 — a year full of health and happiness, great times with friends and family as well as a couple of magical and unforgettable trips!

Even though 1001 Unforgettable Trips is quite new (launched in June of 2014), you probably already know that the main content on this site is descriptions of unforgettable trips which you can easily organize on your own.

Creating content like this is our number one goal, but we have a small problem: we don’t know you very well yet, so we cannot write the perfect content for you.

When we created our company, we also spent a lot of time thinking about our future audience. We even created an imaginary person called Alex to represent this audience. We imagine that Alex has an office job, which no longer feels really fulfilling, so Alex spends a lot of time watching travel documentaries on TV and dreaming about vacation: what it would be like to spend unforgettable days surrounded by nature or visiting remote countries and experiencing foreign cultures first-hand. But Alex is not a big risk-taker, so most vacations up to now were less fulfilling and life-changing than Alex wished them to be.

We’d love to help Alex with detailed trip descriptions, travel tips, equipment tests and much-needed travel inspiration, but first we have to learn more about this imaginary person. And since you (the reader) are a part of Alex, why don’t you take 3-4 minutes and answer the 5 questions below? The more honest and specific you are, the better.

As a thank you for participating in our reader survey we’ll send you our e-book How to best prepare for a safe and enjoyable trip abroad. But you have to hurry up a bit, because the e-book will only be free until the end of January.

A big thank-you to all who have filled out the user survey already — you’ve helped a lot and we really appreciate it!
