Alley is an editorial intern for TravelChannel.com. She was born a small-town girl, but has since suffered from a terrible case of wanderlust due to her lifelong big city dreams. From going to concerts all over the eastern U.S. to studying theater in England, she has only scratched the surface of her endless travel bucket list. Some of her favorite destinations so far include London, Paris, Chicago and Austin, Texas, but New York City will always have her heart. Next up on her to-do list are Ireland, Scotland, Italy, Boston and the West Coast. When she’s not jetting off to a new destination, you can find her binge-watching Food Network and tending to her beloved cat, Hedwig. Follow her latest adventures at @alleyoope.
