A year after getting his travel feet wet on a jaunt to the Dominican Republic, Dan is setting out on the biggest trip of his life — a round the word trip through Africa, Asia, Oceania, South America and North America.

    Hi Dan,

    A brilliant blog,thanks very much.

    Can i be cheeky Dan, and ask if it would be possible to give an idea of the price of common goods as you go through each country. A bit like the ‘shopping baskets’ they use to compare supermarkets! For example 2 or three ‘must have’ items, like a the price of a beer, and maybe the average cost of accomodation? It would be so useful to help me budget for a similar journey to yours.

    Thanks very much,

      The thumb. A very useful part of the anatomy, especially when you decide to head out into the world, hitchhike and use other modes of transportation. For Jo Magpie, it (both actually) have served her well in her travels – always heading east. She’s once again on the move. Yup, east.

      Naomi, David and their two sons are ‘on a slow roam around the world’. Though both successful, David didn’t want his children to view him as the dad who was always working. So, with the business and house sold, possessions relocated – the four set off to explore. Their style of travel allows them to live/work in comfort while spending quality time with Lucas and Easy (Ezekiel).

      In 2008, the Annison family moved from the UK to New Zealand and bought a boat. In 2010, they upgraded to a camper van to explore the country. Though the cats stay home to help the elder son with the yard work and house, the remainder of the family (including the dogs) traverse the open roads of Kiwidom, searching for hidden treasures.
