One thing stumping me is where that sheep herding is done... possibly South Africa?

Bungee jumping seems to be the one off Bloukrans Bridge, South Africa as in TARI. The route info in TARI at Kragga Kamma Game Park involving driving with logs through the mud course seems there too. I suspect the ice hockey would be somewhere in Europe.

I think teams (one I noted was Tom & Matt) appear to be in a mine, which I would suspect to be the Wieliczka Salt Mine in Krakow, which we found may have been visited later in TAR Israel 2.   
I see you watching me watching you :)

I have it on my PC. I'm trying to get it to somewhere where it won't take 4 hours to upload. Stay tuned.

Yay... I can't wait..
I really wish we could stay longer in the countries we visit, but I've been lucky to have visited most of them before, because I've done a tremendous amount of travel. - Phil Keoghan

And the other:


Quality is a little bit fuzzy, but the sound is fine, and nothing of particular interest happens during the small freezes.

Thanks Coutzy! Loving the polished, non-fomulaic introductions! Except the slightly disconcerting team randomly inserted into the end...

Do we wanna go through the locations (for laughs and giggles) or no? I think I saw Jerusalem!

P.S. How did Liberty's handbag turn into a beagle?

Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

One more little blurb on Krakow...

Quote
The second, Australian edition was shot in November 2010 (with the participation of the Krakow Film Commission).

The Krakow Film Commission, together with the Warsaw-based Bow&Axe Entertainment company, represented by Marek Nowowiejski, were responsible for completion of all formalities connected with the obtaining of approvals and permits for shooting of the programme in Krakow locations.

Last year, for the first time together with the Krakow Film Commission, we made a part of an episode for the Australian edition.

http://www.film-commission.pl/en/news_/action,get,id,182,t,The-Amazing-Race-2011.html

We researched the salt mines pretty heavily for TAR 11...and ended up getting only an insider clip video...no tasks. Can't wait to see it this time around!

This was in the little snippet before Episode 2. Could it be the Rio Grande in New Mexico?

EDIT: Nevermind, it's not. Where is this bridge? I'm certain this is where Nathan & Tyler and Matt & Tom bungee jump.

There's no Ep4 thread so I'll stick these here:
  • You already know about the quad runners at Atlantis dunes, but the skydiving is there as well; open up GE and look just south of the dunes for the lakes.
  • She's asking directions at the intersection of Steyler and Buitengracht in Capetown.

One detour choice in Prague is the knights in shining Armour task from TARA (Originally a RB to find damsel in distress)
PERFORMED BY: Dave and Kelly, Jeff and Luke



Mine task in ??
PERFORMED BY: Nathan and Tyler, Sam and Renae



Ice rink task in Prague from TARA (Originally an active RI to be performed by intersected teams)
PERFORMED BY: Nathan and Tyler?



As someone previously stated I think that Jeff and Luke compete with and beat Richard and Joey at the head shaving hence we do not see them without their heads covered.

I saw 2 men running past, 1 in a red shirt, the other in a yellow
 

Jeff and Luke  :yess:

Then saw a man and a woman
The woman appeared to be short late 20s to early 30s and the man a bit older and taller

Richard and Joey  :'(

I don't know of significant mining in any country visited except South Africa and Poland.
