    He has gone to London every spring since 2000.

    Id like to know if the two sentences below are both OK.
    1.
    He has gone to London every spring since 2000.
    2. He has been to London every spring since 2000.
    Thanks.

    If he still goes there:

    He has been going to London every spring since 2000.

    Re: He has gone to London every spring since 2000.

    The present perfect progressive is fine, but I would assume that the person still goes there with the original sentences unless the wider context indicated that he has stopped.
