EARLIEST TRAVEL MEMORY?
WE WENT to Warner’s in Hayling Island every year. My dad hated flying and to this day has never been on a plane.
FIRST TIME ABROAD?
THE Algarve. I had just started playing for Arsenal so I could afford to go.
IN YOUR FOOTBALL CAREER?
SINGAPORE, Hong Kong, Hungary, Sweden and Switzerland.
DID YOU SEE MANY SIGHTS?
WHEN we went to China on a pre-season with Arsenal, I was drinking heavily at the time, so I chose to drink rather than go to the Great Wall. In Australia, I chose to drink instead of going to the Great Barrier Reef. I was there but I wasn’t there. I was in the bars.
I LOVE America. I used to go on Concorde when I was earning good money. I’d fly over for the weekend to watch the New York Jets or the Knicks play.
I love Florida, even though I’m about to turn 55. I’ve got three little kids — eight, five and two — so we did Disney last year, which was great. My older children are 21-year-old twin girls and boys aged 32, 30 and 28.
WE LIKE Majorca; my wife Kate’s mum has an apartment there.
THE Grand Floridian in Disney World and the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress in Florida.
FAVOURITE UK HOLIDAY?
A CARAVAN in Weymouth. The kids love it, even if the weather isn’t great.
