Where: I'm actually staying home this summer. I took my 'summer' holiday in spring this year to Port Douglas with my family: husband Shane, my two boys Talon, eight, and Arlo, three, and our two best friends Worm and Bern and their son Townes, two. All my favourite people.
I took: Shorts, T-shirts and a pair of thongs… What more do you need in Port Douglas?!

Where: Hopefully not far from home with my family - wife Sam, daughters Georgia and Charlie and son Harry. We've done so much travelling in the last four years it would be nice to just go to the coast and relax on the beach. Having said that, Sam is trying to organise a road trip up the west coast of California, from LA to San Francisco, with a stop in Mammoth Mountain for a ski.
I'll be taking: A mix of cool to freezing cold clothes. I never go away without my iPod and a few books.


Happy holidays

They’re following the sun and chasing the snow, staying close to home and heading farther afield: we asked some of our favourite people from the worlds of art, sport, food, fashion and entertainment where they’re headed this summer. Pack your bags, good times await.
