What Does Our Name Mean?

My site is called, Wandering In The Westerlies.

Well, the meaning of “wandering” just means to travel or use some type of transportation to arrive at a destination. It’s describing the journey.

Now the meaning of “Westerlies” is a bit different.

In meteorology, the Westerlies are continuous winds that are coming from the west, and blow toward the east in the middle latitudes between 30 and 60 degrees latitude. Between these specific lines of latitudes lie the United States, and most of Europe, where I have travelled, and where I’m destined to travel in the future.


The name brings together two of my passions: travelling and geosciences.
