A 5 Days in New York Itinerary, Written with Love by an Ex-New Yorker

by Allison Green @ Eternal Arrival

It’s a major oversight that I haven’t written about New York City at all in the nearly two years I’ve had this blog. After all, New York was my home for 9 years, and as a result I know the city better than any other in the world. I guess New York is such an overwhelming topic, and to try to consolidate my 9 years of wisdom into a quick New York City itinerary in nearly impossible. I wanted to create an itinerary that represents a wide span of the city – not just the iconic museums and buildings, but the independent bookstores, cozy cafés, and authentic ethnic restaurants that really make New York what it is. This itinerary is made with first-time visitors in mind, but I think even New York veterans can find something new and exciting on this — especially on days 4 and 5, where I zero in on Queens and Brooklyn. 5 days in New York City is kind of the bare minimum to get a good idea of Manhattan and still get to see a few of the other boroughs. Of course, there’s so much more you could do – 9 years in the […]

It’s Ridiculously Easy to Fall in Love with Tallinn in Winter

by Allison Green @ Eternal Arrival

Tallinn is always a magical place. But in the winter, Tallinn looks even more like it was plucked from the pages of a fairytale. Somehow, the city looks more striking against a muted, cloudy sky. Red roofs, candy-colored façades, spires reaching skywards in shades of green and silver, all against the backdrop of the Baltic Sea: it’s what you dream of when you think of historic European cities. But most historic European Old Towns – even my beloved Prague, where I lived for six months and where my curiosity about the world turned into clinical wanderlust – are ridiculously crowded in the months leading up to Christmas. But not so in Tallinn in winter. This charming medieval Old Town is miraculously sedate in the winter. In fact, once you realize that won’t be packed elbow-to-elbow in the narrow streets of the Old Town the way you would in summer, visiting Tallinn in winter starts to seem like a reasonable idea after all. Sure, winter temperatures hover around or below 0 Celsius, and the sun sets around 3 PM. But isn’t it worth it to have a piece of this fairytale city all to yourself? I’m an advocate of visiting Northern cities […]

If you’re looking for the most stunning places on the Emerald Isle, there’s no better place for an Ireland road trip than beautiful County Mayo. This county is home to some of the most stunning landscapes, delicious food, and off the beaten path gems in Ireland. This road trip itinerary will take you through all the best things to do in Mayo, Ireland’s most photogenic and striking county, which can be done in a minimum of four days. Of course, the longer you have, the more leisurely you’ll be able to travel as a result. And with views as epic as you’ll see all over the Wild Atlantic Way, it’s well worth the extra time spent visiting these gems along the coastline! Ireland Road Trip, Stop One: Westport Explore the cute town of Westport Westport may very well be one of the most photogenic towns in all of Ireland, which is saying something — Ireland is a beautiful place. I particularly loved the canal going through the center of Westport, especially beautiful in the fall as the leaves change color and the brightly colored flowers on the bridges add pops of color everywhere. The houses are painted in a variety of […]

The Affordable Luxury Guide to Ho Chi Minh in 2 Days - Eternal Arrival

The Affordable Luxury Guide to Ho Chi Minh in 2 Days - Eternal Arrival


Eternal Arrival

Vietnam has a reputation for being one of the most affordable countries in the world to travel. It’s become a bit of a Shangri-La for backpackers, but what I found was that if you stretch your budget just a bit, that’s where you’ll find incredible value. Travelers looking for some affordable luxury will be in heaven in Vietnam’s cosmopolitan capital, Ho Chi Minh City (formerly and often still known as Saigon). If you’re heading to HCMC (as it’s often abbreviated), get ready for a whirlwind of sights, sounds, and scents. This city is an assault on your senses in the best possible way: flickering neon lights from the surrounding skyscrapers rivaling those of Tokyo, wafts of warm, fragrant smoke from street food stalls, and the constant hum of motorbikes in a city that rarely rests. The city’s energy is infectious, and it’d take a lifetime to truly explore Ho Chi Minh City to its core. If you’ve set yourself the near-impossible task of seeing the best of Ho Chi Minh in 2 days, here’s a quick guide to do it in style.

Shifen Waterfall and Old Street: Best Day Trip from Taipei

by Allison Green @ Eternal Arrival

One of the most amazing things about Taipei is just how accessible this city of nearly 3 million people is to such green, beautiful nature. Even better, Taiwan’s excellent transit system makes it pretty easy to get just about everywhere you’d like to go. I was initially a bit nervous to try to traverse Taiwan’s public transportation given that I neither speak nor read Chinese: turns out I shouldn’t have worried at all. The public transportation here has excellent signage with plenty of English language directions. And in my few moments of confusion, Taiwanese locals have always proven to be extremely friendly and ready to help. Getting from Taipei to Shifen It’s quite easy to get to Shifen from Taipei. First, you’ll want to to take the MRT to Taipei Main Station. From there, you can board any northbound train except a Keelung-bound train to Ruifang (the express trains are called Tzechiang). A ticket cost 78 Taiwanese dollars, or about $2.50 USD. This is the only place I found the signage a bit confusing, as it wasn’t immediately apparent which trains were going to stop at Ruifang. You might want to ask a local to be sure you’re getting on the […]

5 Traditional and Unique Shows in Tokyo for Your Bucket List

by Allison Green @ Eternal Arrival

Tokyo is a city of theatrics and personality. Neon lights illuminate the streets by night and waves of people animate the streets by day, expressing themselves through crazy and quirky fashion. No matter how modern they are, the Japanese are still deeply wedded to tradition, and they enjoy sharing their ancient traditions with today’s visitors. See ancient arts such as sumo or kabuki — or go full 21st century with the chaotic and famous Robot Restaurant. If you want to see a show in Tokyo, you’re spoiled for choice! Top 5 Unique Shows in Tokyo to Experience Sumo Image source Flickr Japan is virtually synonymous with its most famous sport: sumo wrestling. This ancient sport dates back centuries to a time where it was recognized as nothing more than a form of entertainment for the deities. Yet these days, it’s iconic and internationally known, and to this day it still has a dedicated following across the country. Sumo might seem like just a shoving match, but that’s far from the case — it is incredibly regimented. Wrestlers train their entire lives to make it professionally, living and dining in communal living spaces called “stables” where they undergo a rigorous training […]

My Incredible Malawi Safari in Liwonde National Park

Deserts are fascinating places.

The Unbearable Lightness of Being an Instagrammer

by Allison Green @ Eternal Arrival

I was sitting in a conference, listening to an Instagrammer talk with pride about influence. The example she gave? A follower had sent her a photo of her going to the exact same spot that she went and taking the exact same photo – down to the hand jauntily placed atop a straw hat – with a similar whimsical caption to boot. She talked about how her followers have told her that they don’t even care to read about a place — they just want the picture. And that, as someone who’s always loved the written word, is a bit sad. But she’s not wrong. A full 40% of millennials say they travel first and foremost for Instagrammability. I certainly can’t fault anyone for taking photos of their trips or themselves. But it’s the prioritization of Instagrammability over the other more rewarding aspects of travel that makes me sad. Getting the photo shouldn’t displace seeing the destination itself. My best travel moments are often about chance happenings – special people I’ve met along the way, near-disasters narrowly avoided by kind strangers, fortuitously stumbling upon a hole-in-the-wall restaurant that ends up blowing my mind. But that isn’t what I show on my […]

My Best and Worst Travel Moments of 2017

by Allison Green @ Eternal Arrival

2017 was a whirlwind of a year: overwhelmingly busy, mostly positive, with some serious low points. Despite my insistence in my last recap that I was “slowing down,” my FOMO had me barreling through 22 countries (13 of them new ones) and 9 U.S. states (4 for the first time). 2016 had ended on a bit of crap note: I had ended my trip a month early, facing the worst resurgence of my depression since 2008. I took two months at home trying to get myself started on the hard work of self-care, which, surprise surprise — I’m still no good at. My time at home was good at pressing the “reset” button and starting to screw my head on straight, but I quickly became restless and ready for my next trip. So I packed my bags for 4 months in Central America, crossed my fingers, and got on a plane on January 10th, hoping for the best. Here’s how it went, month by month: January Countries Visited: The U.S., Nicaragua The Best Getting back into my old self in Nicaragua. I had spent months fighting off my depression, which hit me janstrong in Italy last October. When I got […]

6 Stunning Places in Bali You’re Missing Out On Right Now

by Allison Green @ Eternal Arrival

Spectacular beaches, world-class massages, mesmerizing landscapes, outrageously delicious food… Bali is absolutely stunning. I’m writing this from a beautiful villa in Canggu, feeling safe as can be. But because of the rumblings of an angsty volcano, the tourism-driven island economy is suffering. People working in hospitality are losing their jobs left and right, and businesses are being forced to shutter.  The reality is that while Mount Agung is active, there’s no telling when the eruption will be: it could be today, a few weeks later, or even a year from now — or it could die down completely. Stay away from the 12 kilometer exclusion zone (easy to do, as Bali is a massive island) and you’re in no danger. So if you’re hedging on coming to Bali, let me assure you: now is a great time to visit. Your dollars will make a huge difference to an economy devastated by the decrease of tourism, and you’ll be rewarded with the least crowded Bali has been and will be for years to come. If you’re not yet convinced, here are 6 absolutely magic places to stay in in Bali that are perfectly safe to visit now, volcano or not! Live […]
