I'm OK with NZ, but two legs, and then to Fiji? Oceania overkill.  :lol:

And I don't especially like another two legs in South Africa.

Leg 1: Sydney, Australia to Tokyo, Japan
Leg 2: Tokyo, Japan to Seoul, South Korea
Leg 3: Seoul, South Korea to Dhaka, Bangladesh
Leg 4: Dhaka, Bangladesh to Kazakhstan
Leg 5: Kazakhstan to Moscow, Russia
Leg 6: Moscow, Russia to Madrid, Spain
Leg 7: Madrid, Spain to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Leg 8: Brazil
Leg 9: Brazil to Santiago, Chile
Leg 10: Santiago, Chile to Easter Is., Chile
Leg 11: Easter Is., Chile to New Zealand
Leg 12: New Zealand to Melbourne, Australia

And the final Road Block task will be similar to the final road block task on TAR 19, so the final 3 teams will scratch their head on which the country Kazakhstan were located on the world map. :lol3: :iok

More reasonable wishlist destinations for season 3 are Thailand and Japan. I can just imagine season 3 ripping open a clue flying to those countries so here's my guess on the route.

Leg 1 (Australia --> Japan) Gold Coast OR Brisbane to Tokyo
Leg 2 (Japan) High-speed rail to outer Tokyo villages
Leg 3 (Japan --> South Korea) Busan (manufacturing route)
Leg 4 (South Korea --> Russia) Vladivostok
Leg 5 (Russia) Trans-Siberian railway to Saint Petersburg
Leg 6 (Russia --> Ukraine) Bus to Kiev
Leg 7 (Ukraine --> Italy) Venice
Leg 8 (Italy --> Nigeria) Abuja and bus to Lagos
Leg 9 (Nigeria) Lagos (rebuilding and economic activity route)
Leg 10 (Nigeria --> Ethiopia) Addis Ababa
Leg 11 (Ethiopia --> Thailand) Bangkok and bus to Chiang Mai (nature route)
Leg 12 (Thailand --> Australia) End City: Perth (Western Australian Outback finish)

Not sure if this goes here, but I think that a visit to South Korea or Japan is a definite.

Japan is a go-to must. :cmas16

Tokyo is beautiful in the spring with cherry blossoms in bloom. Hopefully they can take a hi-speed rail to Sapporo and then fly to Busan (recommended) or Seoul the next leg.

Yes that is a definite possibility and perhaps onwards to Europe through Russia.

If cost is an issue I don;t think Japan would be a good destination. Its expensive.

If TARAussie can fly to South Africa from Australia, I believe in them flying to Japan as I have read they have similar booking prices. Read it on a flight site, but not sure if it's respectfully true or not.

I think the start line and/or the finish line should be the tallest peak of Australia. Mt Kosiosico (spelling is probably wrong)

The nearest "international" airport to Kosciusko National Park is Canberra, which is a nice 2 - 3 hour drive and only gets flights from Sydney, Adelaide, and other Australian territories (why even bother calling it "international" :groan:)

This would be a perfect finish line location despite its airport direct destination choices and long drive. :)

It's called Canberra International Airport because Air Pacific had flights there to Nadi for about a year or so in 2006. They could also do a massive drive from Sydney or something to get to a Mt. Kosciusko in the early morning to have a sunrise finish which would be epic.
