We publish several magazines here, and this one definitely receives the most direct input from its travel planner readers. Because of the worldwide influence of your travel programs, we have made a point of asking for Select Traveler readers to give us input, and many of you have been great about responding.
I was curious to see over the past three or four issues where these responses had come from, and what kinds of travel destinations they highlighted. Including the issues since our March/April issue, we have published responses from travel planners in 14 states. We’ve heard from planners in Alabama, California, Illinois, Iowa, Louisiana, Missouri, Minnesota, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island and Wisconsin.
In those responses, our planners have referenced travel to dozens of North American destinations, including places as geographically diverse as Bok Tower Gardens in Florida; Rocky Mountain National Park; Bryce and Zion national parks; Ellis Island and NYC; and Washington’s San Juan Islands.
These same planners referenced international trips to places like Antarctica, Ireland, Panama, the Norwegian Fjords, European rivers, the Mediterranean, New Zealand and Amsterdam.
In the next couple of weeks, you will receive a very brief survey from our office asking if you would like to join the many planners who are responding to our queries. We’d love to profile you and your travel program and gain your insights about places you’ve been with your travelers. Watch for an online survey soon and let us share your expertise with everyone else through Select Traveler magazine.
