This site celebrates it's 20th anniversary later this year (hence the above additional text!) and over the next few months I plan to highlight a few sites that have had an influence on my site, in some way or other, during this time.

So here is the first - GAKEI.com. Established in 1996, this site is run purely as a hobby and provides updates not only on buses but aviation, railways and maritime. In addition to the website, there is also a Facebook page, just follow the link under the photo. GAKEI.com was one of the first sites to allow me to use copyright photographs, many of which are still used on my site today.
