Hi, and welcome to my site. I’m Izzy, and I am just one girl in a world of billions. I hail from a small but beautiful country that is Scotland and started non fiction blogging many years ago as I moved from my paper journals to the internet (previously on Blogspot).
After years of just writing random thoughts about travelling and things of interest, I have now sorted and arranged these stories into categories for easier navigation. The three main categories:
- A collection of stories about my travels (physically)
- A collection of stories about my mental travels as a lifelong learner
- A collection of stories as I become a commercial pilot – Flying though the air
You will find these ‘category’ on the right side of each page. If you are using a mobile device then this is located at the bottom of the page.
I first started ‘writing’ in childhood, but when I look back on those journals its a cringfest of incoherent words. Years later as the internet and social media platforms advanced, I started blogging as a way to keep a track of what I was doing and had done, as well as letting friends and family know what I was up to during my backpacking days of travelling. The more I travelled the more I struggled to find a place to belong. Over time I realised that travelling was not just a physical entity, and it was at that point where I really started my pursuit of lifelong learning. This was also where my pen name Dizzy Travelling became both a play on my name and on the word travelling, due to its many forms.
As I embark on an exciting new journey of becoming a commercial pilot, I am now also able to share with you my experiences in that. If you read post Long taxi to the runway (part 1), you will find that this was not something I ever thought about doing, until two years ago.
So come, join me as I try to cut above the clouds.
[NOTE: I am currently still moving my posts from Blogspot and reorgansing them here. Please bear with me while I do that….]
