Ahead of the whirlwind trip, we spoke with Kochie for two minutes to learn more about his top travel experiences.

Faena in Buenos Aires. It had a tango club downstairs! Everything about it said ‘exotic South America.’

The most unforgettable restaurant you've ever experienced on your travels?

A barbecue on the back of a Russian icebreaker on New Year’s Eve in broad daylight as a sea lion floated by on an iceberg.

Your must-have travel item and why?

My iPad. It has everything – my books, videos and emails.

What are your top tips to beat jet lag?

Time your sleep on a plane for when you’re going to arrive. And keep hydrated.

Your favourite holiday spot in Australia?

Kangaroo Island. It’s our version of the Galapagos Islands. And there’s so much interesting produce.
