Oh my god please don't start in Asia again. Although it seems like it. -_-

I think that Seoul could be a great start-city, and then off to Japan!!!!

I am 99% sure Japan will not be visited since it has been visited twice in the last four seasons. :tup:

I would be really surprised if the race doesn't start in South America. I'm hoping for Brazil and the Patagonia Region  :hearts:.

I highly doubt they visit South America since we spent 3 legs there in Season 20.

In the same line,  they shouldn't visit Asia again because they had 5 legs on this season and in Season 19 :( .

Yeah, but based on past trends, TAR only visits South America on average about once every 3 to 4 years.

Brazil and patagonia would be repetitive. Perú & Ecuador would be really nice. But i don't think SA will be visited this year.

Uhh... these are the seasons the race has viisited South America.
2,5,7,9,11,13,16,18,20

The pattern is usually every other season (or sometimes 2 seasons apart) visits South America

Brazil was visited for only 1 leg in Season 18 and Patagonia hasn't been visited since Season 16. Peru and Ecuador are in the Andes, and didn't the race go there in Season 20. Wouldn't going back be repetitive.

Last year they went to Argentina and that area is surrounded by the Andes, it's not in the Andes. On the other hand Perú and Ecuador have A LOT more to offer than just the Andes.

And in TAR:UB, Asia had also spent 5 legs too.

All I'm hoping for South America is that they kill the Chile & Argentina pairing. Whenever Chile is a destination, I always sigh and say "Argentina again, right?" :(

They could start to use Colombia and Bolivia more.

Columbia and Venezuela aren't used because of the potential threats to Americans, just like Mexico these past few years.

One country that may now be on the permitted list is Myanmar now that President Obama and Secretary Clinton are due there for an official visit in about 10 days.

I doubt it. Myanmar is still a heavily restricted place.

Somewhere that is long overdue is Canada  :lol:

They did it in TAR5 and TAR20.  BTW, Uruguay is a good option, with only one previous visit (TAR5).

Some cool spots they have not visited is The Galápago Islands, Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca, Easter Island and The Amazon. If they go to Venezuela, it could be so cool if they went to Canaima National Park.  :hearts: :hearts: :hearts: :hearts:

One place I feel it's hard for them to not visit, purely for its convenience, is Qatar(Doha). It could easily serve as a transition point between Asia and Europe or even Africa. It would be a new country as well.

Could be so great, since there where no new countries in TAR 21.
So i hope there is a lot of new countries like TAR 19 there had 4.

I'm still betting on a Europe first leg. It's been a while since they started there (Season 17). If this coming season is anything special, I hope North America or a Pacific Island would be the first region to be featured. In order for them to get their ratings back, TAR should include a rarely seen region in the world. Perhaps they could feature Greenland, the Himalayas (Northern India or Nepal), the exotic Central Asia or Pacific Islands. These routes they're featuring recently are too generic.
Oh Brian, I can't wait til after dinner. Cos then we'll go home and you can watch me have my period.

I also agree it has been a while since the race had a europe start, but I think they are saving that for Season 23, since we cant have three summer starts in asia in a row. I'm hoping Season 23 starts in SCANDANAVIA!!! :luvya:
