Meet Alyssa Reimenschneider, official CAPA blogger in London for Fall 2015:

Hi! My name is Alyssa Reimenschneider, and I am a junior studying English Literature and Studio Art at Albright College.
As a chronic daydreamer, I subsist on well-written fiction and lush cinematography, and I often (naively) like to imagine that my life will play out like one of my favorite stories. I've loved to read for as long as I can remember and wanted to travel for as long as I could read.
I can hardly believe that I'll be studying abroad in London this semester, because it's something I've imagined since I was a child, and now - for once - my real and imaginary lives are colliding.
While I'm abroad, I hope to explore a little of Europe, venture into the English countryside to experience the settings of my favorite books and, of course, discover the little wonders that wait in everyday life in London. I will write my way through what I find there - on the streets, in trains or open moors, in theatres and shops and people I pass. I will write myself as London makes me, and hope I can put life into words.
