About team GeckoGo
THIS was the project that inspired a group of friends to quit their cushy day jobs, move to a new country and work full time without pay for 12+ months straight to make it all happen. Yep, we're doing this out of our own pockets.
Why? Cause we're passionate about travel. We want to take this energy to create the best travel web site out there. And we really mean it when we say we want this to be a participatory community. Let's shape this site together to make it something we all find useful, and let's live out our experiences and adventures to its fullest!
"It all started on a rainy day in Vancouver (well, I'm not sure if it was raining or not, but it was October in Vancouver) back in 1978. To escape that rain, I'd go traveling, always with a "small" collection of trusted guidebooks. Pokin would always bug me about just how many I'd have with me (sometimes 1/2 my backpack would be full of books). In an attempt to get her off my back, avoid the baggage weight surcharges and save some trees, I thought I'd do my part to help the world go paperless and make a good travel web site."
"Was born and immediately started playing lego - traveled with hippie-in-denial parents - got into playing the cello at age 8 and rebelled as a rocker at age 13 - studied music composition during undergrad - traveled - decided I should know more about human affairs and studied business - traveled - got a marketing job at an evil cosmetics multinational but escaped brainwashing - traveled - finally saw the light - decided it would be nice to create a better travel website."
"Every spare moment I had, I was daydreaming about places to go or things I wanted to see. And through this all, I couldn't understand why, given all the advances of the internet, I still found it easiest to plan a vacation by buying a Travel Guide to get the information I needed. There had to be a better way, and gosh darn it, if someone else wasn't going to do it, then I would!"
