The best holiday I've ever had was ...

This past summer on a camping adventure with my extended family. It was like being a child again, swimming before breakfast, solar showers and toasting marshmallows around a campfire - heaven.

And the worst was ...

When six of us hired a yacht in the Greek Isles but didn't want to moor at busy ports. Our Greek captain started ranting and raving. We "abandoned ship" by kayak, rowboat or swimming, and I swam back to the boat and started peace talks ...

With endless time and money I'm off to ...

Great Barrier Island for six weeks, followed by trekking in Morocco and Turkey. A stop-off in Spain wouldn't be out of the question on the way home.

The best travel advice I have is ...

Be wisely brave. Take a "yes" mindset with you. Some of my favourite holiday memories were made by meeting locals and trying something new.

I never leave home without ...

My husband. He's adventurous, his sense of direction is impeccable and I like his humour.

Petra Bagust is the co-presenter of Breakfast, TV One, weekdays from 6am.
