Hello travellers,

As travellers I am sure you have at some point wonder why do you travel, and what motivates others to travel. This is the topic of my thesis - "differences of travel motivation among different cultures". For this I am conducting a survey of what motivates people to travel. Please help me gather data by filling out the survey -
The survey is completely anonymous, for academic purposes only, no name / email etc. is required, and it takes under 10min to fill.

Thank you,

Hi Tulika,

I'm sorry but the link was broken. As you have been a member of our site for many years with authentic blogs, I think we can allow you to post your survey link as long as it is non-commercial (doesn't break our terms of service) and not broken. 😉

Good Luck!

p.s. This being said, you might actually get more feedback if you ask a small number of more specific questions on the forums! Reply to this

There is a longer discussion or response in this forum: Travel motivation survey -- there was a slight bug with the response box earlier today but it has been resolved. ;-) Reply to this

Thank you. The survey is completely academic and conducted by me directly. It is part of my academic thesis, so asking questions directly here will not work. I will be sharing my findings, and I believe people in the community will find it interesting.
Here is a working link again - https://mtecethz.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_aXgBvAXbqOtWgXr

In response to: Msg #196104 We travel to escape and enjoy it, and then to return home or find it for the first time - and to enjoy it more. Reply to this

I love to travel because when I do I am free.

I do not take a phone or an iPad or anything that connects me with my work, my private world, home...not with anyone but my wife Denise...and anyone else that may be with us.

Our path is then before us...planned or unplanned...for only us to tread...to have our own unique experiences...among places so different to our home...among vistas and peoples that embrace our imagination...who we accept as they are...as they also accept us as we are...no looking down on others when we travel.

Exhilarating is the journey...when optimism is our leader...and serendipity the path by which we are led. Reply to this

I personally love to explore new things and it's a way for me to learn to embrace diversity in life. I believe that in order to spread the love and beauty of different cultures, I personally have to experience it first. Of course, meeting travellers from different countries is definitely one of the best experiences too! Reply to this

I guess the main reasons I travel are because of the freedom I feel when I'm on the road. Also I learn many things about other cultures and history. And about myself.

And if I was to think about this on an even deeper level, I'd say that this is an incredible planet with amazing things on it and it'd be a shame not to see at least a small slice of what it has to offer with my own eyes before I'm reduced back into dust. Reply to this
