Tennis star Andy Murray recalls his travel adventures
So which destination is the tennis star’s most memorable?
What’s your favourite city?
I do a lot of travelling, but I really do love going to Melbourne, Australia. It may be a long trip to get there, but it’s worth the journey — there’s a great feeling of diversity to the city.
Earliest travel memory?
I remember going to London for tennis camps as an unaccompanied minor on flights — and also one of our first family holidays was taking the ferry to France with my mum and brother for a camping trip. Last year, we had a great family holiday to the Maldives.
Favourite holiday activity?
As well as hitting a ball, I like to kick a ball every now and again. Not many people know I was asked to join Glasgow Rangers when I was younger. I also like going to ‘escape rooms’. There is something almost relaxing about the challenge of getting out of an escape room. It’s like a puzzle, where you’re locked in a room with other people and you have to use your mind to find a way out — reminds me of tennis. I like a game of golf every now and again, too.
What do you never travel without?
Usually a tennis racket, but also a travel adapter. There’s nothing worse than turning up at a hotel without one.
Andy said he’d like to revisit Vienna for its amazing architecture and good food
Best travel tip?
To stop jet lag, I find it’s best to black the light out of the bedroom as much as possible and, if you wake up at odd hours, don’t look at your watch or your phone.
Any favourite shows while travelling?
I’ve seen The Lion King twice and also enjoyed War Horse and Chicago when I was in New York for the U.S. Open.
Places you’d like to revisit?
Vienna is a great city. It’s really clean and has amazing architecture, and so much history. The people are very friendly and there’s such good food, too.
