December 2009: Westlife singer Shane Filan reveals what's in his suitcase.
My last long relaxing holiday was to Barbados for [bandmate] Kian’s wedding. It was total pampering for two weeks. I’m much more into beaches than big cities and as long as there’s sun, sea and golf, I’m happy. My wife and I decided we wanted to learn to ski about three years ago and we’ve been trying to organise our first skiing trip. But something, namely her getting pregnant, keeps stopping us! We’re determined to make it up the mountains one day, though.
A good choice of sunglasses is a travel must for me, as I like matching different colours and styles with my outfits. Plus, I am guaranteed to lose at least one pair, so it’s good to have backups.
My gym kit comes with me wherever I go. In the last six months I’ve become totally addicted to working out. If I don’t do anything for a couple of days I feel like a massive elephant.
The laptop is essential for the kids. We can set them up with a DVD on the bed and they’re asleep in next to no time, giving us a bit of much needed peace.
I can’t go anywhere without my mobile. My wife will try to make me leave it in the hotel room for the day, but I’ll always find a way to slip back and check it. I don’t just have it on me for work calls, though. I store all my family photos on it and, before a tour, I’ll upload videos of the kids, which I’ll watch when I miss them.
Westlife’s new album Where We Are (Syco/Sony Music) is out now.
