Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

"And then she was gone"

Buss to airport leaves in 40 minutes. Excited? Yup. Nervous? Getting there. Panicking? Most likely will happen at the airport.

This will be really awesome tip! I am so happy to see my friend after several months and see totally different culture. And I am thrilled that I get to meet Evie and Simon again on my way back at London! Yes, be jealous. Be really jealous. :P

Friday I go!

And Saturday I’ll be there :) My friend promised that on Sunday we will visit Tai Po Kau Nature Reserve (even though the Lonely Planet guide says that we should avoid the place on Sunday when it’s crowed. But it’s the only day that suits my friend). That will be so great! Other than that, I don’t have much plans other than just see the city and shop and eat well :D I have only 5,5 days there so it will be busy and long days if I want to take most of my time there.

I got myself insurance, credit card + new bank account and hostel. Now there just left to change money, buy stuff for my friends, charge batteries to my camera, find out what buss to take to airport and pack my stuff.

Dragon Hostel

So I booked the hostel last weekend. It will be Dragon Hostel in Mong Kok. My friend lives in Sha Tin so that was more convenient for her than Causeway Bay. And more friendly to my wallet also :D I guess all the hostels are the same: really small rooms and full of annoying tourists.


Should I pay a little extra to stay in hotel or just take the cheapest hostel? The less money I spend in accommodation the more money I have to use for shoes etc. Which doesn’t sound too bad…If I take hostel, I will take that from Causeway Bay. I think I should stay away from the Chungking mansion or Mirador mansion.

Lonely Planet, Explorer...

I borrowed myself some guide books. Eh, I know that it’s still almost 2 months for my trip, but hey, I need to be prepared :P Hmm…well I guess at some point I should get that accommodation for me..

In November

I’ll be there for 5,5 days. My friends are studying there for semester, so I have some guides with me, but I’ll be travelling alone from Finland which quite intimidates me :/ But I am sure that it will be awesome experience. And totally the craziest thing I have done :D I just hope I won’t get lost or robbed or anything :P

I need to book myself accommodation and get some guide books and collect some tips what to see. So if anyone has visited/lives there, what I shouldn’t miss?
