About

Where Alyssa Wanders is an ode to the wanderer, dreamer, and child within. This space is used to share all things travel and lifestyle through the creation of thought provoking content and paired with a love for writing. Alyssa began her blogging journey by sharing her personal reflections, much like how she started her writing career at a young age (that is, writing in her personal journal of course). With so many places to see, people to meet, and things to discover, this is where it all finds a home in a space of the interwebs in hopes of inspiring individuals who want to do the same.

Alyssa Mopia is a San Diego based lifestyle and travel blogger/content producer that has a knack for creating genuine connections and sharing compelling stories. As much as she’s a storyteller, she loves hearing stories in return, which is why she created Coffee & Convos, a platform where she chats with people over coffee to connect, caffeinate, and create. In addition to that side hustle, she started a podcast called The Casual Creatives with one of her blogger besties, Nancy Nguyen (aka Happily Ever Nancy), centered around community and creativity. With her passion for adventure and trying new things, you can find Alyssa constantly creating and making her way across the world one coffee cup at a time. She’s worked with great brands she loves such as Olukai, Blue Chair Bay Rum, and Harry’s (just to name a few), and continues to work regularly with brands that she shares similar values with.
