My dream destination: Comedian Alice Tovey

MY ONE DREAM DESTINATION IS STILL …

Vietnam. When I was in my late teens, I went to visit there with my family. It is one of the most incredible places I've even been. There is a rich history and resilience everywhere you go. It was such a pleasure learning about the history of Vietnam as told by Vietnamese people, as opposed to the westernised, colonialist narrative that we're so often fed.

WHEN THIS IS ALL OVER I'M DREAMING OF VISITING …

I keep having dreams that I'm living in Los Angeles. LA has such a mythos to it. It's this magical, almost unreal place where stars are made. Will I be made a star? Most likely not. Will I enjoy hanging about in pubs and clubs? Hell yes.

MY DREAM TRAVEL BUBBLE DESTINATION IS …

Japan. It's such an incredible country, where tradition, technology and possibility blend together to make some of the best art in the world. I'm a bit of a Nintendo nerd, so going to the home of Nintendo nerds would be an absolute treat.

MY DREAM DOMESTIC DESTINATION IS …

Ningaloo Reef in Western Australia. I've never been out west, and I think there's no better way to do it than by swimming with whale sharks. They are so friendly. Such giant, harmless, good boys.

MY DREAM DOMESTIC TRIP SO FAR HAS BEEN ...

Hobart. I cannot say enough good things about Tasmania. My partner and I visited a few years back to celebrate our anniversary and consumed our weight in cheese and whiskey. I am also an unabashed arty wanker, so visiting MONA was one of the highlights of my life. Not only do they host some of the most daring, visionary artists of our time, they have a machine that does a poo! Hell yes, I am paying to see that.
