How the idea of GeckoRoutes was born

Which places do you want to visit?

And how long does it take to get to our next destination?

This were questions that came up when I was planning a 3-week Vietnam holiday with my family. I had been travelling through Asia for several months, but I hadn’t been restricted on time. Having breakfast till 10 in the morning and then starting to check when the next bus would leave was not really an option.

I also didn’t want to end up telling my family that the last bus of the day just left an hour ago.

So how did I plan our trip?

After reading several travelblogs, forums, asking friends and other fellow travellers, I created an excel sheet with destinations we had to visit.

The next step was to find out how easy it was to reach these places. Unfortunately, that task was even more complicated. For each destination, I had to do a new Google search, browse through several blogs, visit local websites and unriddle the text with the help of Google translation. Only to find out that the information was not up-to-date.

And this is exactly the problem GeckoRoutes wants to solve.
