We love to profile real people alongside the Carry On Watson brand to help encapsulate what it means to ‘Carry On’ in life, work and travel. Introducing Candy Hertz, who has a number of hats, working across Media, Entertainment and Content. Candy is pictured here with our playful 'Otomi' in white 'Watson' which was inspired by Mexican indigenous art. Get it here.

WHAT PAYS FOR YOUR ADVENTURES (AKA, WHAT’S YOUR DAY JOB)?

I have an umbrella profession meaning I work in many roles across a few companies under the umbrella of Media, Entertainment and Content.

I'm a Lifestyle and Sport TV and Radio Presenter, Content Creator and MC. I’m an on-air radio announcer on Fox FM, I produce a Friday night radio show, I’m on the mic at many different Melbourne events (basketball, AFL, horseracing), I MC events, I present lifestyle content and I head up the Marketing and Content for an App company. In addition, I'm a Creator, Host and Head Adventurer at www.onthelistmelbourne.com.au

That’s what’s under the umbrella today, who knows what will be paying for the next adventure. 

WHAT WAS YOUR MOST MEMORABLE ADVENTURE?

I’ve had such varied travel experiences, from running with the bulls, sipping Mojito’s in Cuba, living and working in Thailand and exploring the untraveled west of China.

I love going on solo adventures, but if I can rope in a travel buddy, those memories last longer and are more meaningful

IF YOU HAD AN UNLIMITED BUDGET AND 10 DAYS AT YOUR DISPOSAL, WHAT WOULD YOU DO?

If I was in the mood for a zip around adventure filled holiday I would go to South America. I cannot believe I have still not ticked it off my travel wish list!! I would also find a way to make that unlimited budget extend the 10 days to at least a month.

If I was in need of a relaxing, sip cocktails by the water kind of trip, I would go to the Maldives or the Philippines to soak up the culture, the food and the sunshine! 

WHEN YOU TRAVEL, WHAT DON’T YOU LEAVE HOME WITH OUT?

I don’t leave home without my thongs, a convenient little backpack, loads of light and versatile dresses, an endless supply of lipgloss and a camera. 

WHERE ARE YOU PLANNING YOUR NEXT TRIP?

I’m lucky enough to have a few friends living overseas at the moment (ahmm free accommodation) so Dubai, Turkey, Israel and New York are on the hit list for 2017
