Celeb: Catriona Rowntree reveals her secrets for New Year's Eve

Thursday, December 6, 2007
Getaway catches up with Catriona on her top tips for New Year's.

Q: What is your favourite place to spend New Year's Eve?

Catriona: I really have only one goal on NYE and that is to be with one person I love, be it a best friend or best beau. As long there's that genuine companion by one's side, who cares where you are?

Q: Where were you on your best New Year's ever? If you had only one New Year's Eve, where in the world would you spend it?

Catriona: I've had such a bad run with NYE that for years I'd always try to work, but last year I put that aside and accepted an invitation to ring in the new year with Richard Branson and his family in my home town of Sydney. So much fun, such wonderful company, good times all round.

Q: What are your New Year's Eve survival tips?

Catriona: Have an exit plan and keep your dignity.

Q: What is your new year travel resolution?

Catriona: I set little goals on a daily basis not just on NYE. Besides, I never keep the whoppers, just the wee small ones.

Q: Any new destinations you'd like to see?

Catriona: : Mexico, Cuba, Costa Rica ... how much time do you have? I'm as obsessed by travelling today as I was when I started on the show 12 years ago.
