The second season includes journeys to locations in North America, Africa, Europe and Asia. Rosendo cruises Alaska's Inside Passage aboard a luxury liner, enjoys wine-tasting in Malibu, celebrates the lantern festival in Chiang Mai, Thailand, canoes past hippos and elephants on a Zambian safari, and discovers that people are, in fact, the greatest treasures in Germany’s Christmas markets.

"Naturally Los Angeles" - While most visitors head for Hollywood or Rodeo Drive, Joseph introduces viewers to some of Los Angeles’ little-known treasures from hiking in the Santa Monica Mountains and wine tasting in Malibu to the Venice Beach drum circle — a weekly celebration of the city’s diversity.
