First off we hit the high seas with the Kink team on their luxury Cruise liner voyage. Jambul then takes us on an expedition in Yorkshire, with some spots you may know and some others you most certainly don’t. Bob Manchester is on hand to show us a completely different side of Barcelona, with a shovel in hand.
