‘I went diving in Bora Bora and the marine life is like nothing I’ve ever seen’: Tenor Russell Watson recalls his best and worst travel adventures
Tenor Russell Watson, who has recalled his best and worst travel adventures
So which destination is the singer’s most memorable?
Here he talks about his earliest holiday memories in Wales, tips for travelling with kids and the one thing he can’t travel without – and more…
Most memorable holiday?
Bora Bora, in the South Pacific, a dozen or so years ago. I went diving and the marine life is like nothing I’ve ever seen.
Earliest holiday memory?
Driving to Betws-y-coed, North Wales, in my father’s Hillman Imp. We’d put on our boots and head for the mountains.
Ideal travel companion?
My darling wife Louise — we’ve been together nearly ten years.
The Four Seasons in Hampshire — we often go there for a good chill-out.
Tips for travelling with kids?
Don’t take young kids on long journeys. Once they’re past seven, it gets easier, if there are plenty of activities.
Your idea of holiday hell?
Staying anywhere where the service is bad and the staff are rude.

What can’t you travel without?
My tennis racquet. If I find out that a hotel hasn’t got a tennis court before I go, I’ll usually book somewhere else.
I’d love to go back to Bora Bora again but Louise won’t do long-distance flights, so it will probably be somewhere closer to home like Vienna.
