About Me

Alyssa is a freelance writer and outdoor adventurer with a restless spirit and an odd obsession for gnomes. When she isn’t cranking out quirky stories on her laptop, you can find her climbing mountains, kayaking rivers, and snowboarding slopes.

Alyssa never walks out of her apartment without a notepad and pen to jot down travel stories of her adventures and the random encounters along the way.

As a graduate of the Matador U Travel  Program, her goal is to discover unexplored niches in all forms of nature and never stop exploring.

The adventures of Alyssa and her gnomes are documented here.

  1. Just found your blog. As a fellow Chicagoan I’ve found myself on several adventures gnomish and otherwise. To me the smart gnomer will visit House on the rock in wisconsin and stop by Mount Horeb to visit the ugly trolls.

    Seriously though, thanks for all your information on this blog. It’s very good.

    • Hi Christopher,

      Thanks SO MUCH for your kind words and for checking out my blog! I have visited House on the Rock a couple times and absolutely love the place. I’m always a bit disappointed that there are no gnomes there though. It seems like they’d fit in there quite wonderfully. My favorite place in Mr. Horeb is the Grumpy Troll Brew Pub…always good for a craft beer and some pizza. I’ve recently relocated to Atlanta and am interested to see if there are any gnomish adventures lurking down here in the south ­čÖé

      Have a great weekend,
      Alyssa
