Is there any place or city that you once visited, and over the years you just keep going back? I 've been to the Grand Canyon and stood on the Great Wall of China, are both are really a WOW experience. But they don't pull me back. My place is New York City. First visited in 1985, (At that time I lived and worked for eighteen months in White Plains NY. I was on secondment from my Dutch Company - Heineken) Made frequent trips to NYC, and was totally fascinated. NYC population back then was 7,000,000, for a comparison my home town of 's-Hertogenbosch, back then was 85,000; The whole population of the Netherlands back then was only 13,000,000. NYC was so very different, It truly was my first 24hr city, still a bit dangerous, hell in some areas very dangerous. But it had a life like I had only ever seen in the movies, seeing the street where Bob Dylan and Suze Rotolo, made cover for Freewheeln' . Going around Manhattan seeing Times Sq, and 42nd St, just like Taxi Driver (You talking to me?). Central Park was bigger in area than my whole home town. John Lennon's Strawberry Fields Memorial had only just opened, Central Park was dangerous, and after dark VERY dangerous. But it didn't matter it was for me the most exciting place I had ever been. Since then I have been back to NYC, in 1995:1997:2000:2003:2006: I'm thinking of travelling again this year for the Comic Con, in October 2012.
