Brooke Versus the World: Interview with Brooke

At the start of this year, Brooke and her boyfriend Brian had it all planned: a long-term round-the-world trip.

But when Brian was offered a too-good-to-resist job in New York, Brooke decided to head off on her own. She flew into Poland in March, made her way through the Ukraine, and is now in Kyrgyzstan learning Russian.

I caught up Brooke to learn more about her experiences in Eastern Europe and Central Asia as a solo traveller.

      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.

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.
