The Places You Must Absolutely Visit in New York

 

New York

United States

Top City

After visiting New York dozens of times over the past 20 years and living there for two-years, I have come to know this incredible and famous city quite well. Although New York is constantly changing there are also many things (like the major attractions) that never seem to change! With this in mind, take a look at the list of things you absolutely must do in New York!

As One Door Closes, Another Door Opens

Where it all started – Cape Town, South Africa

It is often said that when one door closes, another one will be opened. Over the past month, we have had to reach deep to evaluate our very own business and dream – our open door. It is with weeks of thought, hours of discussion, and the most humbled feelings that we announce today that the AbsoluteVisit trip has come to an end. We will not be continuing on to visit the rest of the Top 100 Places as we originally had planned.

Although this door has closed, we will not simply let it slam behind us. To our avid support group, we would like to help you understand why we came to this decision and what’s next for AbsoluteVisit.

[AbsoluteVisit is NOT going away. Read on to see what why we are making this change and what's up next!]

Trip Update from San Francisco, USA

Dreaming of Mt. Bromo – Mt. Bromo, Indonesia

Wow, it has been over three weeks since we have provided an update! Apologies for the delay, but on to the madness . . .

After we last wrote an update from Siem Reap, we spent a few days in Bangkok before heading to the Philippines for 11 days. Here we traversed the metropolis of Manila, saw our seventh AbsoluteVisit (The Banaue Rice Terraces, #33), and explored two amazing Philippine islands – Palawan and Boracay.

Prambanan Temple – Yogyakarta, Indonesia

The Entry to Prambanan Temple

OK, now that you are done laughing about Brad and I in our hard hats and skirts (uh uhm – they made us wear them!), we can carry on. Prambanan is a 9th Century Hindu Temple and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The site was originally made up of 240 different temples, but what stands today are roughly a dozen with the remains of the others surrounding them.

Until next time, farewell Philippines

The Banaue Rice Terrase - AbsoluteVisit - Travel

Well, as the saying goes, “everything good must come to an end.” Our time in the Philippines is now over and it’s time to say goodbye, but let’s change that to see you soon!

We had a thrilling 11 days in the Philippines which took us to Manila, Banaue, El Nido, and Boracay. I’m exhausted when I think back on it, but a smile always comes to my face with the incredible memories that were made. My only regret, not staying longer. There were many places on the trip that we could have easily stayed an extra day or two. Add to that several more islands that are now on my must see list and it seems like we could have, and perhaps should have, visited for a month! I will return.
