Join Couchsurfing to see Alyssa’s full profile. It’s free!
Traveler, cyclist, writer, currently residing in Charleston. I have a passion for riding my bike to places most people drive their cars and collecting stories along the way. My plan is to see all of the US from the saddle of my bike. And then beyond!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Bicycle touring! I have benefitted greatly from the kindness of strangers as they open their space up to my stinky, spandex-clad self and didn't question the need for a safe place to stow my bike/gear. I want to return the favor! I love sharing stories from travels. I can't guarantee a well-cooked meal, but I can guarantee beer and conversation!
Food I don't have to cook myself
Short story collections (they're so underrated)
Music, Movies, and Books
The one book I always recommend is The Alchemist.
Avett Brothers, The Head and the Heart, High Divers, Volcanoes in the Kitchen, Wood Brothers, Trevor Hall, Iration, Dirty Heads, Nahko
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Sunrise from an abandoned Spanish castle after a night out. Complete with churros and chocolate.
Teach, Learn, Share
Respect, love, and shared happiness always comes back around.
What I Can Share with Hosts
Comfy couch, porch with comfy adirondack chairs, endless chatter about bikes, beer, a roommate with great stories, a fish named Fang.
Countries I’ve Visited
England, Portugal, Spain
