I'm sorry you feel that way. Trademark similarity is not an exact 
science and depends on too many factors, so your question was very hard 
to understand.
To me, the two logos look identical, except that our arrows have sharper 
heads. <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikivoyage/Logo_announcement>
If you don't see the similarity, I suggest you to try and describe the 
two logos as would be required to register them, to see how hard it is 
for you to highlight the differences in our logo.
