Interview: Travelixer – Find the best spots around the world

by Maarten on April 4, 2011

Friends of mine started a new website. This website is not just your average travel hotspot site. It is build for people who love going outdoor and doing all kinds of outdoor sports, including windsurfing. So I thought it would also benefit you if you know this new site.

What does Travelixer mean and what does it stand for?
The word Travelixer is created by combining the word `Travel` and `Elixer` (Dutch for Elixir) and stands for hotspots, adventure, outdoor activities, socialising and sharing experiences. The website unlocks and combines worldwide hotspot and outdoor activities. Travelers and outdoor adventurers can find the best locations for their favorite activities, upload their own hotspots and share their experiences. Of course various types of surfing are part of our site too. We want to reach enthusiastic surfers who want to share their ultimate experience on the water with us and other outdoor activity lovers.

Travelixer logoHow are the hotspots and activities collected?
Hotspots can be uploaded by our registered web users. A website visitor can easily create a profile and upload their favorite hotspots, review or rate an existing hotspot and upload photos or videos. So it is content and experiences generated by our website users.

Which activities can be found on Travelixer?
Of course you can find wind, kite and wave surfing. Activities like scuba diving, mountaineering, white water canoeing and rafting, safaris or expeditions are all divided in different categories. When you upload a hotspot you can choose your primary activity as well as sub activities when more than one can be practiced.

What else is the Travelixer website offering me?
For each hotspot we want to provide relevant information, e.g. about the location, surroundings, accommodation and activities. There is a forum where you can post all your questions about a hotspot, the best time to travel there, other tips etc. Are you planning a trip and are you looking for a travel buddy? Then you can post a search request in the `Travel buddy` section.

In the near future we want to offer our users the possibility to book their own custom made trip, provide travel specials and related outdoor products. This way a windsurfer can easily plan a trip to their favorite surf spot, find reviews from other surfers and sport related offers.

What do you want to achieve with Travelixer?
We want Travelixer to be the world’s leading web portal concerning hotspots related to outdoor adventure. It will be the centre where travelers and adventurers can find and share information about their passion and access different kinds of related services and products.

Thanks guys for your time and see you on the water! What do you think of Travelixer? Let us know in the comments.
