What was your greatest holiday?

There are a few I could choose, but the greatest is perhaps the one I just took to Bali. Bali has such a magical aura about it, with so much to offer - something for everyone! I thoroughly enjoyed interacting with the locals who were the friendliest people I think I've ever met. I experienced some incredible moments too - yoga in a treetop canopy studio and a rafting trip with scenery I won't ever forget.

How about for a dream holiday internationally?

Turkey or Iceland. I love going to places that have such unique experiences on offer.

What's the best travel tip you've ever been given?

Don't plan everything. Great stuff happens unexpectedly if you allow the opportunity. Also, don't be afraid to mingle with the locals, I believe that one of the most important things to learn on this planet is about people, culture and how others live.

There is a wealth of knowledge and beauty to be learned from really immersing yourself in a different environment like that.

If we bump into you on holiday, what are you most likely to be doing?

I'll be off the beaten track, getting amongst local activities, food and events. The best things in life are free and you'll only find out what they are if you're not afraid to explore the true aspects of another culture. I always hope to meet interesting new people.

Storm Halkett appears on The Bachelor, Monday and Tuesdays at 7.30pm on TV3.
