My Kind of Holiday : Pabi Moloi
Co-host of M-Net's All Access and 94.7 presenter
Where did you spend your last holiday?
New York City.
What was the best thing you did while there?
My highlight was a turn at the famed Apollo Theatre's amateur night.
Your favourite city abroad and why?
I fell in love with London. But an affair with Croatia or Chicago may come up soon.
What must a first-time visitor see there?
I sightsee for personal interest so I have no Lonely Planet -esque advice. All I wanted to do was stand in Trafalgar Square and re-create a photograph my grandfather has from his visit there in the 1960s, which I did and it is priceless.
What should they not bother with?
Being too cool to take pictures of everything.
What was your best holiday ever?
A recent weekend I spent on the Garden Route with my best friend. We rode bicycles on the beach, ate loads of carbs, laughed and built a braai for ourselves.
What was your worst holiday ever? What happened?
The one that didn't happen. My best friend and I had a weekend planned in KwaZulu-Natal. We waited and waited at the airport and our flight kept being delayed. We eventually had to give up and go home.
What is the worst hotel you have stayed in?
I stayed at a tiny B&B in Springbok en route to Botswana once, which wasn't so much bad as it was haunted. Lights went on and off all night and there was a grandfather clock that would chime - in slow motion - at odd times. Creepy.
What is the best thing you have been given on holiday . or pinched from a hotel?
I think the best thing I've ever been given is a holiday. I won a weekend to Cape Town recently. The entire trip was grade A, from staying at 15 On Orange to yachting, sushi and champers on the icy Atlantic to being driven around all weekend in a Bentley. It was quite a gift.
What is the most exotic dish you have ever eaten on holiday?
Everything in China.
One place you want to see before you die?
The Grand Canyon.
What do you avoid on holiday?
What's your best piece of travel advice?
Save up and go alone if there's no one to accompany you.
