Television presenter Shane Jolley has always wanted to host a travel show.
His latest project, Luxury Escapes: The World’s Best Holidays, has allowed him to discover some spectacular holiday destinations, including Dubai, Ho Chi Minh City and Ko Samui.
“Not a day went by on the shoot when I didn’t pinch myself to make sure it was for real,” Shane says.
When he’s not travelling the world, he calls Prahran home, and lives there with his fiancee, Amber, and dog Molly.
Where do you go for some me-time?
I swim a few times a week at Prahran Aquatic Centre so I do a lot of thinking, believe it or not, in the lanes.
For a sneaky takeaway?
Hanoi Hannah for its take on Vietnamese street food and amazing fresh tuna rolls.
For a great cup of coffee?
I’m torn between Club Social and Teaspoon in Prahran, though right now Club Social is winning my heart for its awesome outdoor area that happily accommodates me and my puppy, Molly Jolley.
To buy the perfect gift?
Armadale Cellars is my go-to for picking up a great drop of wine as a gift for a mate.
To catch up with friends?
Now I’m a proud dog dad, I’m constantly talking my mates into joining me for a walk with Molly around Fawkner Park.
To get some exercise?
The days I’m not swimming laps at Prahran Aquatic Centre, I’m working up a sweat at F45 in Prahran. Exercise clears my mind and prepares me for the day ahead. It’s also an awesome tonic for jet lag.
Luxury Escapes: The World’s Best Holidays airs 4.30pm Saturdays on Channel 7 until December 17.
