Sadly, There was no Kenya this season, except as a transit airport.

Nepal looks like a likely missed leg, darn it all.

Nepal would have been nice. At least the route has countries not used since Season 15 with a majority of them being new.

Phil must have been heartbroken...he has mentioned in every single interview how much he wants to go there. I understand, it is one of my favorite places in the world too!

Oh well...maybe we will see it in Season 20! :hearts:

Oh, I do hope so, I am so surprised at the amount of new locations they wanted to visit!

I guess it would be hard for them to visit Nepal next year, because everybody would be expecting it and it would likely go from a well kept secret to a spoiled (as in spoliers) destination.

:lol: but Atlanta is the USA its bound to be spoiled.  :snicker: I just have a feeling Nepal isn't a fit for season 20, but I would love to be proven wrong.

Weather wise Nepal makes more sense in November than June.
June to September is considered monsoon season. Wouldn't want to be anywhere that's susceptible to mud slides during monsoon. Which would pretty well rule out anything outside Kathmandu or the valley.
From there to here, and here to there,
funny things are everywhere

Question:
What is the status of Madrid?  I remember it being mentioned in some posts, including a possible sighting, but I'm not sure what happened to it.  Is it just a connection point? Or a debunked rumor? or what?

I'm slightly confused on the matter...

A possible connection or a rumor, I'd go with the latter.

Aww. Nepal. :( It might be Phil's teaser country. But since Taiwan <3, Indonesia <3, Thailand <3, Malawi <3, Belgium <3, Denmark <3, Panama <3, Atlanta <33, it is still AWESOME! :hearts:

It wouldn't necessarily have been an event big enough to hit the newswires to cause the rerouting. It could have been something as maddenngly simple as a bureaucrat on a power trip revoking filming visas at the last minute.

"in one day the whole world turned upside down in the place that we were at"

Could also suggest that they made it to their planned destination, and then they had to scrub their original RB and Detour in favor of their back-up plan because of extremely localized disruptions/problems, rather than having to go as far as to travel to a back-up destination.

I just put up the official press release in the Media thread. One thing I noticed was it says teams will be riding elephants in the rainforests of Thailand. I don't think there are any rainforests around Phuket. Maybe this could clue us towards the second Thai leg?
Physics alone is not enough.

Those who forget history are sure to repeat it.

Lots of elephants up around Chiang Mai...and since TARA used it, it would be an easy fill in spot as well.

Not exactly....

for one thing, Nepal is PURE spec. At the moment we have no proof that that was ever intended.
