If they were going to go to Antarctica, the time would be within the next couple of months, when its coming into summer down here.

this is more spec than fantasy, but whatevs

i believe they are heading to South America first, since the race (for the most part) goes there every other season (2-3 legs)
(S2, S5, S7, S9, S11, S13, S16, S18?)

from there I believe they'll head in a westernly route, likely stopping somewhere in Australia/that general vacinity (1 leg...maybe 2)

then on to SE/E Asia for 2 legs

after that either Indi/Middle East for a couple legs at most

then East Africa and from there finish off the race in Europe before heading to the East Coast for the Finale

I'm going to have to agree with David on this one. I think the time is ripe for 6 continents.

two legs in S. America (Buenos Aires + maybe Guayaquil)
two legs in Australia (Melbourne + Tasmania)
three legs in Asia (Indonesia, which is now off the travel list, maybe Doha and Bahrain)
two legs in Africa (a return to Egypt: Cairo + Alexandria)
two legs in Europe (possibly Spain, you can take one of the Asia legs and put it here)
finale

If they hit Antarctica, then there'd be 1 leg in S. America.

As Finnish person I must correct you that my home city is definitely not called Helskini but Helsinki.

It sure has been a while since they were last in Australia (season 9, 2005) and I guess all-stars for season 18 makes sense since it will be the 10 year anniversary of the show.

I'm trying to speculate about future locations after Australia. It would make sense if the teams go to western Australia and hit the outback since it's never been featured on the show. This is all speculation, but from Australia they could go to Bali in Indonesia which is a country the show has never been to before. From Indonesia they could fly to northern Thailand which has not been on the show yet, or even Laos. From South East Asia they could fly to the Maldives or Sri Lanka, but since that's such a short distance, it could be somewhere in the Middle East instead and then Africa.

Antarctica would be a good inclusion to make this anniversary edition epic.

weihen: I had also thought about Nepal, but this time of the year, it would get pretty cold, so I don't know if they'd do it.

I'm guessing Indonesia (Bali) and India after Australia.

Agreed, Peach.

If not seven continents, then at least 6. I would love for them to go to Bhutan, but they issue less than 500 (or maybe 5,000, but I think it's 500) tourist visas each year, so that would be a harder one. It would also be cool if they went to Brazil and did something on/in the amazon river.

If i remember correctly from the past all stars season a lot of new countries were visited so Africa and Indonesia do seem like distinct possiblity.

Only 3 new countries were visited, Ecuador, Mozambique, and Poland
However; areas of previous visited countries were new. (The Island of Zanzibar for Tanzania, the nearby area of Macau which is right hear Hong Kong which is part of China; and the US territory of Guam)

Well after you guys figured out our first two countries (Australia and most likely Japan), my fantasy route would  then be:

Leg 3 - Japan? - Indonesia
Leg 4 - Indonesia - Netherlands
Leg 5 - Netherlands
Leg 6 - Netherlands - Venuzuela - Panama for pit stop (or other Central American country for task + Pit Stop)
Leg 7 - Panama - Argentina
Leg 8 - Argentina - Cameroon
Leg 9 - Cameroon
Leg 10 - Cameroon - Northeastern Russia
Leg 11 - Russia - Canada
Leg 12 - Canada - USA

you really should reorder the arrangement of some of the countries, the route should be in a general western direction.

I know that's usually the case but I wanted to spice it up a little? Then again it would probably cost a lot for production... :groan: Anyways, I hope you liked it.

This is already looking 2 b a different season, so who knows...
