Q&A: Olive and Izzy


We sat down with eight-year-old Olive and her dachshund (and BFF), Izzy, over burgers at NYC’s Shake Shack to talk travel and Cronuts. (Spoiler alert: These two are totally adorable.)
Q. OLIVE, WHAT BRINGS YOU TO NEW YORK?
A.
We come every year! Manhattan is one of our favorite places to visit! We would so live here if we didn’t live in London.
Q. SO, WHAT’S ON THE ITINERARY?
A.
We’re such tourists, but…full disclosure, we really came to try the Cronut. Izzy is a vegan and gluten free, but she’s going to make an exception. 
Q. WHERE ELSE DO YOU LOVE TO TRAVEL, IZZY?
A.
Hmm. I think our favorite trip recently was Paris—right, Olive? We were invited to a New Year’s Eve ball, so we went to Harrods for some fancy outfits. Olive told me I had to wear a gown, but I wouldn’t—I don’t do long dresses. 
Q. OLIVE? ANY FAVORITES?    
A.
We love to snorkel, so my favorite place was probably the Great Barrier Reef. Though, poor Izzy got stung by a jellyfish and couldn’t move her tail for a few weeks.
Q. HOW DO YOU GIRLS FIND TIME TO STUDY?      
A.
We’re homeschooled, so we spend a lot of time studying on planes and trains. We’re learning Mandarin Chinese right now. Izzy is better at speaking; I’m better at writing the characters.
Q. ANYTHING ELSE ON YOUR AGENDA FOR THE TRIP?         
A.
Lots of exhibits, to keep us cultured. We’ve planned a trip to Kara Walker’s art installation at the old Domino Sugar refinery in Williamsburg. And I promised Izzy we’d stop by this new shuffleboard place afterward. She’s so competitive sometimes. 
Q. LAST QUESTION, GUYS: WE HEAR YOU’RE TAKING A TRIP AROUND THE WORLD, IS THAT TRUE?
A.
It’s true! It’s a 180-day cruise, and we’re going to over 100 countries. I’m most excited to visit South Africa, and Izzy can’t wait to go to Italy. We’re both soooo excited.
