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.

- The Robots.

_The Dolomites (Italian: Dolomiti; German: Dolomiten) are a section of the Alps.
A tourist mecca, the Dolomites are famous for skiing and mountain climbing. The main centres include Auronzo, Cortina d’Ampezzo, Arabba, Ortisei and San Martino di Castrozza._
All towns are pretty and people are known for their hospitality.
In the oriental part of Dolomites I’ve been in a mountain lodge on the Lagazuoi . I suggest some pictures.
The most famous town is Cortina d’Ampezzo (100 miles from Venice). Here you can see the place with webcam .
In some valleys, people speak the Ladin Language.
Ladin has its origins in neo Latin and came about as a result of the contact of Latin with the local language. This occurred after the conquest of the Dolomite valleys by Roman troops in 15 BC. Nowadays Ladin is the fulcrum by which the local population of Badia, Val Gardena, Livinallongo, Val di Fassa, Val d’Ampezzo, Cadore, Agordino, Val di Zoldo and Comelico identifies itself .
I specially like a small village during the summer, Antermoia .
These mountains are really amazing.

WaynesworldNice locales!

It was interesting reading up on everyone’s favourite places to visit and stay overnight. :) 8 years ago

heaveemetalI've found the cheapest place to stay.....

is in my head…some people find this limiting and boring…I however have huge caverns in there to explore. Evidently I have a vivid imagination…

An internet connection helps…and pictures along with friends…

When all else fails…Go to The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park where “The Shining” was filmed…It was fun…

Stromboli is a small island in the Tyrrhenian Sea, containing one of the active volcanos in Italy. It is one of the Aeolian Islands, a volcanic archipelago north of Sicily.
Stromboli is remarkable because of the length of time for which it has been in almost continuous eruption. For at least the last 2,000 years, the same pattern of eruption has been maintained, in which explosions occur at the summit craters with mild to moderate eruptions of incandescent volcanic bombs at intervals ranging from minutes to hours.
The island has a population in between 400 and 750.
Here the nature give us an idea of what is under our feet.
And I like this quiet expression of power.
The beach is dark and the place is … simply romantic. 8 years ago

FollowingtheEquatorI used to live here...

This is one of my very favorite places on the planet! Grand Anse Beach, Grenada, West Indies. It is considered one of the 10 most beautiful beaches in the world. Sad thing is, when you live there, you tend to take it for granted. Now, it’s a dream to go back! 8 years ago

PaolaOn the antipodes

... geographically and décor-wise.
The one thing they have in common: I promised I would pamper myself staying at both, one day :)

Pearl Beach Resort, Bora Bora, French Polynesia: suffice to say that there are overwater bungalows with glass floors overlooking the lagoon, the fish and the corals. That should be reason enough.

Château de Bagnols, Beaujolais, France: it isn’t the most luxurious Relais & Chateaux in the world, but I really love the building, because it looks like a mediaeval fortress, and the region is stunning. 8 years ago

~ John Lee ~The Mainstay, Cape May New Jersey USA

My favourite Bed & Breakfast experience ever.

Situated at the southernmost point of New Jersey, most of the city of Cape May is on the National Register of Historic Places due to the adundance of Victorian architecture. Cape May juts out far enough into the Atlantic that the Gulf Stream is only a short distance off shore making the water warmer than most of NJ.

Most of the architecture is pre-Civil War. Cape May was favoured by Southern aristocracy and business people and the architecture reflects the style.

The porches of the Mainstay evoke the styling of riverboats. Most of the furnishings are period, although the beds are indeed modern and comfortable. Afternoon tea is served properly on the porches every afternoon. 8 years ago

WaynesworldBeautiful West Québec Resort, Gray Rocks Inn.

Thanks, Stacey, for inviting me to join in on this. Quite a few years ago, when I was in my late 20s, one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed at is the Gray Rocks Inn and Resort. My wife and I booked almost a full week there, with another couple, my best friend and his wife. It was quite a wonderful time. The gals didn’t golf much back then, so during two or three of the days, the boys played golf at Gray Rocks’ tough and excellent mountain style golf course, while the women went horseback riding, visited the lakefront beach and did other activities. Of course, on other days, we all did activities together.

In the evenings, we would all come back to the hotel for a fabulous gourmet dinner in the Gray Rocks famous dining room. Each night, we would have the same waiter. We got to know him and he, us. It was really fun dining there and trying different delicious meals.

That week was also my first experience riding in a small plane (6 passenger Cesna). We took the 1/2 hour plane tour around the mountains and the views were amazing. It was fun discovering the small lakes that were carved out of the side of the mountains around the Mont Trèmblant area. What wasn’t so fun was the air turbulence near the mountains. One minute we’d be fine, then we would drop 100 feet in 2 seconds or rise the same distance in the same amount of time. When we landed, my best friends’ wife and I were both feeling pretty green, hahaaha….

Other than the side effects of the plane ride, the entire week was a very enjoyable experience and the food was incredible. I would love to go back sometime, soon.

I should mention that some of the rooms are not large and may seem kind of quaint, rather than luxurious. Just remember that it’s not the most expensive Laurentian resort. Gray Rocks is currently celebrating their 100th year anniversary, so you know the main section of the original hotel is fairly old. Given that the rooms are smallish, there are still some very luxurious areas throughout the resort.

Gray Rocks has complete hotel/food and activity packages, in both Summer and winter, depending upon whether you like to play golf or tennis; or if you are a skier. Go ahead and browse this link below to visit the website. The resort is located about 1.5 hours north of Montréal. 8 years ago
