Famous Flyer: Bob Saget

Bob Saget's key to a great holiday? Pack lots of underwear.

WHICH WAS YOUR BEST HOLIDAY?

One of my favourite holidays was a few years back with my friend John Stamos and two girlfriends we had at the time. Not two each, we each had one. We were in Greece on the island of Santorini, staying in the beautiful town of Oia and it was truly magical.

AND THE BEST HOTEL YOU'VE STAYED IN?

I had a dear friend who chartered a private boat - a big one - for four couples and myself (the single guy) in the Caribbean for about 10 days. I've stayed in a lot of ultra-luxurious hotels but this trumped them all.

WHAT DO YOU ALWAYS TAKE WITH YOU?

I always take various legal medications and birth control. Just in case anyone else on the trip needs any of it. I also always bring more underwear than I need. It's always good to have a clean pair of skivvies.

WHAT DO YOU NEED FOR A PERFECT HOLIDAY?

The best thing is to be around people that are kind and fun and not pretentious. Folk like this aren't that easy to come by, so at the moment I feel like I have a lot of solo vacations ahead of me. I also like a decent cigar and some good wine.

WHAT'S YOUR BEST PIECE OF TRAVEL ADVICE?

Never lose your passport or your credit cards. Also, it's not good to plan a trip when you know you're flying into the eye of a storm.

WHAT IS THE BIGGEST PACKING MISTAKE YOU'VE MADE?

Forgetting underwear or a bathing suit. I'm really not a Speedo-wearing kind of guy so when this happens in Europe it can be particularly problematic for me.

WHERE DO YOU WANT TO GO NEXT?

Australia! I'm heading Down Under next year for my comedy tour. And I'm packing three times my normal amount of underwear for the trip.

Former Full House actor and How I Met Your Mother narrator, Bob Saget, is appearing in his own stand-up comedy show, Bob Saget Live - the Dirty Daddy Tour, in Sydney on May 14/15. Tickets at livenation.com.au.
