Luxembourg was visited with the measuring roadblock.

Phil said they're visiting new locations for TAR21. It's kinda disappointing the new location meant new cities, nonetheless I still find the TAR21 route promising and beautiful.
I thought Bulgaria, Albania, Montenegro, Serbia will finally be visited!

I really hate to say this, but you cannot trust Phil absolutely. He makes many "politically correct" statements and does not always tell the truth.

Don't we have a gap between Moscow and Amsterdam? And aren't there a whole bunch of unvisited countries in the "between Moscow and Amsterdam" region?

I like this route, mostly because they finally visited Spain again! And location in there which wasn't expected. Also Loire valley in France sounds good. I'm expecting least from Moscow, Amsterdam and Shanghai legs. Also Istanbul is great as I'll be studying there during the fall semester :tup:

I'm pretty sure they stayed in Russia for 2 legs, only new country between NL and Russia they might have visited is Latvia imo.

Perhaps they went to Nepal for leg 5 after Bangladesh.  The countries border one another.

Bangladesh & Nepal are seperated by India and I don't think they'd be going there due to communist insurgents around the area.

some of us that we'd speculated Estonia will visit that country after the Moscow leg, but I'm also thinking about Belarus, Slovak Republic or Moldavia as well. :duno:

Not at all happy with this route.

Feels like a re-run of 19 without Africa...

Feels like they're going for one meh season (fall)19+21 and one good season (spring)18+20.

I think there are many countries which are possible on all continents. Here is a list constructed to the best of my ability to remember which countries teams have visited and which they have not:

Continent of Antarctica

AFRICA (36 countries not visited yet)
   Algeria
   Angola
   Benin
   Burundi
   Cameroon
   Cape Verde
   Central African Republic
   Chad
   Comoros
   Congo

   Nepal
   Pakistan
   Qatar
   Saudi Arabia
   Syria
   Tajikistan
   Turkmenistan
   Uzbekistan
   Yemen

EUROPE (19 countries not visited yet)
   Albania
   Andorra
   Armenia
   Belarus
   Bosnia and Herzegovina
   Bulgaria
   Cyprus
   Georgia
   Latvia
   Luxembourg
   Macedonia
   Malta
   Moldova
   Monaco
   Montenegro
   San Marino
   Serbia
   Slovakia
   Vatican City
 
N. AMERICA (17 countries not visited yet)
   Antigua and Barbuda
   Bahamas
   Barbados
   Belize
   Cuba
   Dominica
   Dominican Republic
   El Salvador
   Grenada
   Guatemala
   Haiti
   Honduras
   Nicaragua
   Saint Kitts and Nevis
   Saint Lucia
   Saint Vincent and the Grenadines
   Trinidad and Tobago

S. AMERICA (4 countries not visited yet)
   Colombia
   Guyana
   Suriname
.       Venezuela

OCEANIA (12 countries not visited yet)
   Fiji
   Kiribati
   Marshall Islands
   Micronesia
   Nauru
   Palau
   Papua New Guinea
   Samoa
   Solomon Islands
   Tonga
   Tuvalu
   Vanuatu

That gives me a total of 113 countries not visited yet. There is a lot of opportunity to have new countries in each and every Amazing Race, even with the necessary limitations due to safety risks.

I think it's very unlikely for the race to be located in North Korea because at the moment, the government is not letting anyone enter North Korea. Well, even if you're allowed to enter, but there's a minimum chance of survival because if a local North Korean is caught talking to a foreigner, the North Korean has to go to the police station and write down the conversation. I haven't been there, but I had a friend who stayed in North Korea for 2 years because she was an ambassador's wife. She told my family everything about what's happening in North Korea. I'm not lying, for your reference

Not that quite impress with the route. I still like TAR 20's route more. But this season has visited beautiful locations: Indonesia, Turkey, France & Spain ♥ 2 legs in Bangladesh sounds fun. I just wish they stayed away from China (South Korea, Philippines or Laos instead) and Russia (Balkans instead).
Oh Brian, I can't wait til after dinner. Cos then we'll go home and you can watch me have my period.

I think Tunisia has been visited in TAR1 already? They did 2 legs there~
In my opinion, I would like to see TAR visits 1 or 2 new countries each season, but it would be better if they can really show some culture of those places.  Take Bangladesh as an example, last time the visit of Dhaka really makes me disappointed, I think I did not know much about that place even after the whole leg, everywhere seems only chaos to me.

I am happy to see them visit Spain finally! I am very surprised that they never thought about exploring this country, and no leg has been done in Madrid yet! Also, Andalucia like Granada would be an interesting place to go.

Out of the un-visited countries, I think TAR could go to Nepal, Latvia, Bulgaria etc. which could be interesting and not dangerous to go

They were in Barcelona, Spain in TAR 10, leg 12.

I think this is the first season with no new countries at all. I think it is odd and a little off putting. WRP/CBS usually tout their new country lineup in the early advertisements so I don't understand the decision.
I know that after twenty seasons you mat expect them to run out of locations but I don't think this is true. There are many places they could have gone and they only need one or two new ones. Maybe there were some changes or logistical problems that we don't know about.
Whatever the reason it should be interesting to see how they sell it to the viewers. I'll bet that they don't mention it because the common viewer probably won't think much of it.

I think Leg 8 will be Latvia.
1. Its a new country, which every season has had so far.
2. I think they put the 2-leg countries early so they wont have to do them while in europe. Yet, to make it easy for production to stay ahead of teams, neighboring countries like Russia/Latvia and Spain/France would make sense. Just speculation though :lol:.

No, Leg 8 will not be Latvia. It is confirmed that there are 9 countries, which are as follows:

1 - USA
2 - China
3 - Indonesia
4 - Bangledesh
5 - Turkey
6 - Russia
7 - Netherlands
8 - Spain
9 - France

Latvia will not fit.

You never know. At the season 20 finish line, Phil said 9 countries instead of 10. Sometimes they dont count the USA or charter flight/marked car/random pit stop countries with no actual tasks.

In this case, I think they would be more inclined to count the USA and not Austria. Austria was a transit point for TAR20, whereas the USA hosted an entire leg. There wasn't even a single clue in Austria; it was just a clue in Italy saying, "Drive to Austria and then take a train to Germany".
