Alyssa is a professional overthinker, perpetual traveller, and lover of all things related to cheese, chocolate and wine – though never at the same time. She’s actually a freelance writer living in London but that just didn’t sound as contrived. For more writing and the occasional strokes of genius, check out her blog Alyssa Writes.
