Celeb: Isla Fisher

Thursday, August 4, 2005

This week, star of Wedding Crashers, Isla Fisher, answers the Getaway questionnaire.

Q: What's your favourite place to holiday and why?

A: I would probably have to say Jamaica. I love Runaway Bay there. It's beautiful because you can feed the hummingbirds with tiny little bottles and they come in from the sky. It's incredible.

Q: What's your number one travel tip?

A: Sunblock. I think that wherever you are you just need to take it with you. And always keep money separate from … keep your passport at the hotel but I always think it's also good to have a really daggy '80s money bag too to take with you.

Q: When you're packing, what's an item you never leave home without?

A: I always travel with a book.

Q: What are you reading right now?

A: I'm reading Alain de Botton's Status Anxiety actually.

Q: What's it about?

A: It's just about how we all feel pressure to conform to society's stereotypes and how we are all under anxiety that's unnecessary.

Q: Ultimate travel experience?

A: I would love to go to India. Yeah. Because I haven't been yet and heard it is incredible. The fabrics, the smells, the sights. Beautiful.

Q: Favourite travel experience in Australia?

A: I think probably going across the Nullarbor with my parents when I was about nine in their Kombi van. And we just drove across. It was beautiful.

Q: So what are three things that you would not want to live without if you were stranded on an island?

A: Sasha, my fiancé, sunblock and maybe a razor because my legs could get very hairy.

Q: What's the best meal you have ever had and where was it?

A: I did a cooking course recently in Italy and we found this incredible little restaurant near our hotel in Florence. We ate there and it was beautiful, incredible food.
