My holidays: Charles Koroneho

The best holiday I've ever had was ... The four summer holidays I spent with my aunty and uncle in the Thames Valley. My cousins and I would swim all day in the Kauaeranga river, walk for miles and eat whatever we could find.

And the worst was ... Not a fan of Christmas and New Year - too much food, alcohol and distractions. Excessive consumption is the worst aspect of holidays.

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

The best travel advice I have is ... Well-made luggage, rested body, an open, friendly and curious attitude. I never leave home without ... Mataa - obsidian.
