  • Season 2 Episode 2- Richard travels to Paris with the wonderful Mel Giedroyc.  While there they take a class at the Cordon Bleu in making Macaroons, they travel the streets of Paris in a street art tour, and they enjoy local foods.
  • Season 4 Episode 4- Richard travels to Miami with Rhod Gilbert, these two guys are a great team.  While in Miami they attempt a beach yoga class, go into alligator infested waters, and play an exciting game of dominos.  This episode is probably my favorite.
