About Alzo

Are you looking to learn a little about the man behind Alzos Adventures? Well you’ve came to the right place…

Hey! To Begin, My name is actually alan.

 I was born and raised in a small town called Denny, in Central Scotland. Previously, I worked as a Manager and Waiter at Pizza Hut, before travelling and becoming a Travel Consultant with Uniquely Scotland and an Amateur Photographer. You could say I’m an adventure addict, I enjoy getting outdoors and exploring the beautiful world that we share. Whether that be doing an adrenaline fuelled activity, travelling to far off lands or even just ‘bagging Munros’ at home. Regardless of what I’m doing, anytime I leave the house, I’ll take my camera.

What is Alzos Adventures?

When I first left to travel Australia and New Zealand, I thought creating a simple travel blog was a great idea. It was a way for me to share my adventure with everyone back home. Over time, I’ve gradually built it up to become a platform to not only share my stories but a way to sell my photos and offer my photography services with more to come in the future. Hopefully, in some way, this site will inspire others to get out there, face fears and have some fun! 

What Inspires Me?

I grew up watching Steve Irwin and Bear Grylls. They really taught me the beauty and dangers of the world and how to survive in it. I wanted to life life just like them, love & respect nature and be ready for anything life throws at you. I’m also a huge movie geek, Indiana Jones is one of my all-time favourites. When I was younger, I wanted to be just like Indiana Jones, until I found out archaeology isn’t really fighting Nazis and running from massive boulders. I still wanted the fedora though! Lord of the Rings also had a massive part to play in my inspiration. If it wasn’t for those films, it would never have been my dream to travel New Zealand to see the real-life Middle-Earth.
