Light at the end of the tunnel?
We set-up the full time operation of Toristy almost a year to the day (after about a year of part time R&D) and what a year it has been. Even though my career to date has had its fair share of adversity I've never witnessed what we're seeing today.
I was impressed with the coming together of the attendees of Arival when it was postponed last weekend due to the Coronavirus. Many people were stranded or in Berlin anyway but one thing I've learned about the travel industry is people help each other in times of crisis.

In part 1 we discussed how the idea for Toristy came about after a lot of iterations of the idea. Now I want to describe what Toristy is all about from a business perspective and why you might find it interesting if you're in the travel industry. Rather than make this article a sales pitch about what Toristy is I thought I'd explain how the service has evolved based on what we learned.
