U2 star Bono whisked his family on a globe-trotting vacation last year as thanks for supporting him after his back surgery.

Bono family in round-the-world trip

The Irish rocker took his wife Ali Hewson and their kids on an adventure after finally bouncing back from the spinal injury he sustained in 2010.

And the With or Without You hitmaker admitted the "once-in-a-lifetime" trip was worth the wait.

He said: "I've possibly had the best year personally because I've spent most of it with my family. Having been away on tour for so long, then taking so long to recover from my back injury, it was time for a trip.

"I decided to take the family on tour as a little thank you to the kids for being so patient with me.

"Because I wasn't busy with the band we kind of went wandering. Once-in-a-lifetime sort of stuff, places like Africa and Central America. We also went to Jordan and Palestine, Israel and Peru. It was really great to have time off."
