2/4. Saudi Arabia. Kate Humble continues her journey along the ancient trade route used to carry the resin from the shores of the Arabian Sea to the wealthy cities around the Mediterranean coast.
On a thousand-mile trek across Saudi Arabia, she travels by camel, glider and boat on an exploration of the often mysterious nation. After enjoying the sumptuous world of the kingdom's richest man, Kate journeys to the other end of the social spectrum when she meets a remote mountain tribe whose ancestors once guarded the pathways along which the merchants travelled, but who now live on the fringes of Saudi society.
