Trip Leader

Alyson Inouye

Alyson is a trip leader for the Adventure Bonus Week. She grew up in Washington and California, studied English Literature at Seattle Pacific University, and spent her junior year abroad at Oxford University.

During college, Alyson also travelled to Indonesia, Thailand, Italy, and France. She spent months Wwoofing, adventuring, reading, and writing…and getting a little too addicted to travel.

Alyson returned to Thailand the second she graduated. She took a TEFL course in Krabi and taught Communicative English in Bangkok before finally moving up to Chiang Mai. She now studies Thai and works as a freelance writer — meaning she knows the coffee shops here inside and out.

Alyson especially loves wandering around Chiang Mai and trekking nearby. Her happy places include mountain paths, cute cafés — and virtually every body/form/inch of water in the world.
