With the 20th anniversary of her UK tour, we interviewed comedian Caroline Reid (AKA Pam Ann) and asked her about her travelling experiences.
Where is your favourite place you have travelled to?
Mykonos, Greece. I go every year - it’s my home away from home. If you have buckets of money you want to piss up against a wall stay at Belvedere It’s absolutely gorgeous probably my favorite hotel on the island. Jackie O is the place to party. For pampering try Cavo Tagoo Spa.
Where is the quirkiest place you have visited?
Helsinki Finland the people are so quirky and fun. I mean, they live most of their lives in darkness which makes them drink a lot! Oh and most of them have saunas in their houses.
Have you ever had any disastrous experiences whilst on holiday or whilst traveling?
A gay friend of mine ended up in the emergency ward after being dropped by gay bears on his head in Mykonos but it wasn’t really disastrous because he didn’t die. He got dehydrated but nothing was really wrong with him, he was just drunk!
Where would you say is the best place for the LGBT community to travel to?
Mykonos because it’s diverse and gay friendly.
Where was your most outrageous party you have been to and tell us about it!
Elton John’s party he threw for his husband David Furnish in Venice Italy. Pam Ann was hired to crew the flight over on his private chartered plane.
What are your top travel tips?
Don’t fly economy.

The itinerary allows you to explore both historical Greece and relax in the renowned Greek Island of Mykonos. Visiting the highlights of Ancient Greece, you’ll spend time in the heart of Athens before heading by boat to explore and unwind in the islands.
In the islands you’ll have have three nights in cosmopolitan Mykonos, which is particularly gay friendly. It has a wide range of restaurants and bars and all the islands offer incredible sunset views.
You can then choose to return to Athens for an extra day or fly out directly from Mykonos if in season.
