These have been edited in. Thought you guys were supposed to guess.  :funny: :lol:

Also not pictured (and I didn't even realize it until looking at the routes on wikipedia earlier today), the night in Salzburg we at at the Sternbrδu restaurant, which was where teams did the chimney sweep roadblock in TAR 18.

Also not a race location but if you are ever in Rome, check out Gelateria Della Palma (http://www.dellapalma.it/en/) near the Pantheon. Over 150 flavors of gelato.

150 delicious opportunities! :meme Would love to try out an item from Gelati Virtuosi, perhaps Fiori d'arancio. Never met a gelato I've didn't like.

Your photos in Jungfraujoch, Rome, Venice, Prague, and Berlin are beautifully shot! Very jealous.

RachelLeVega, thanks for your write-up on San Francisco. I had thought of visiting SF, but I cut that due to time constraints. I am sad to learn that Candlestick Park will be demolished soon. :(


I bought a pizza at a location visited in the last few seasons. Guess where it came from!
Lombardi's Pizzeria in Manhattan? :spy: That's the only recently visited pizza parlor in post-Unfinished Business TAR I can think of.

You did great Rachel!! Very complete tour!!
Thanks Georgia!

I've never been to NYC before (only Buffalo, New York) so I must be missing out. I'm just scared of the daily parking rates there because the garages here in Chicago are "highway robberies".

How about using public transport or planes to get to NYC? It's really inadvisable to drive there.

Sounds like an adventure to me! :hoot: Hopefully, I won't get lost riding the subway tunnels.

So a few weeks ago I went to La Paz and Copacabana in Bolivia. I managed to take my family to a bunch of TAR locations from TAR13, TARLA2 and without knowing from TARLA4, and they actually enjoyed it. No fighting cholitas, even though they didn't believe me they exists until they saw a promo sign for an upcoming event  :funny:

I have a few pictures here and there, so let me know if you wanna see them.

This one in particular was a surprise, I randomly managed to stumble my way to a gallery of pretty much closed merchant stores looking for my father on the last day of the trip and look what I found... No witch hat sadly :(

Pretty sure this was one of the bikes used in the Detour of Leg 3 of TAR13, there were no more on sight

The wooden bikes are definitely a fascinating mystery to me. I've wondered how people are able to craft the structure of the bike so intricately and efficiently. Glad to see a larger view of one of the bikes here. Amazing travels, Vitoko!

Hope Bolivia had all what you desired to see!

It had way more than I expected. I overlooked this city and country for that matter in terms of "Places to go" maybe because of political reasons but it was an unexpected surprise, the people were really nice to us, the city was massive and convoluted, a little on the dirty side, getting around was incredibly cheap, riding the cable cars was interesting, and the views  from higher ground was an incredible way to see how massive this city is.

La Paz is definitely an underrated city and deserves more upbeat recognition like its inexpensive tourism when it comes to cable cars, lucha cholita shows, and shopping. Wish I could see and feel your adventure. Did you go to Moon Valley (Valle de la Luna) by any chance?

Going to Pulau Ubin
Also the Singapore flyer
And the Marina Bay sands ( not tight rope walking though  :funny:)

I'm very familiar with the Sathorn Pier area of Bangkok from the most recent episode (TAR26, Ep. 4). Fun to see them make fools of themselves in an area I know well.
