Just a heads up, you have background music playing on the site. This is crazy bad practice on the web. My speakers started blaring music while my room mates were sleeping this morning when I loaded up your site. I don't think I've seen background music since 2001. I highly suggest you reconsider that feature of your site.

@theericanderson Thanks for the feedback Eric. It's more to set the mood than anything else but I see your point!

@anujadhiya You have the best collections!
@erictwillis Thanks! And that's likely only until you start getting into it. I know you have the curating bug too :)

Hi guys, I'm the founder of whimsy - a new travel startup that aims to answer the common 'where should I go on holiday?' question. We're in beta for now but please let me know any thoughts/feedback you might have! Thanks and hope you enjoy :)
@adrianogalardi love it! I often browse holidaypirates.com however the way they structure and present deals leaves a lot to be desired. This on the other hand looks great. Have you any plans for linking this up with hotel/airbnb prices? Accommodation cost often far outweighs flight cost.

@adamcudworth thanks Adam! Design has been a priority for us, especially as a way of de-cluttering the often messy travel platforms. We'll definitely be offering some form of accommodation booking down the line, it just needs to be the right match. Airbnb is on our minds though so stay tuned...!
@adrianogalardi SFO SFO SFO! SJC SJC SJC!
I really like the concept. I can think of 2 feedbacks: 1. All the last minute flights are for International locations. I wish it was more local. A use case I personally would have is that if I find that I have no plan for a weekend. I would come on this and find somewhere interesting to go to fill my weekend. But going to Vietnam for 7 days isn't really an option. 2. I wanted to report a small front end issue. The video in the background is really killing my browser. As a result, everything is very laggy and borderline unuseable.

@sidazhang Thanks for the feedback. You're absolutely right about local and you'll notice as we get into Spring, more regional destinations appearing! Noted regarding the lagging, I will pass on the comment to the dev team.

Forgot to mention - we're looking for funding and a CTO! :)
