Well TAR17 was the last time, so I think it should be time for another Europe start.

Terminology please.

TAR 17 did NOT start in Europe...they started in Gloucester, Mass. The first LEG went to England...but not the start.

Sorry for not reading up on five pages worth of thread, but... What are the chances that the powers that be put a leg in Canada? I believe they've visited before, but only east.

TAR is LONGGGG overdue for t\many Caribbean places. We got the South Pacific this season, I think I could see a leg in Trinidad or the D.R., or maybe a revisit to Jamaica (unvisited since TAR 7). I also really agree about South America, I would say a leg in Sao Paulo, and an unvisited city, and then maybe somewhere like Ecuador or Peru. I think Africa will not be on this year unless it is the North. I want none of China, India, Nam, or Indonesia. But I really do not want India. Lastly, it may be too soon, but possibly a visit to Qatar to get some Americans to notice it before the World Cup in 2022.

Qatar
Its 2013 we still have 9 years.  for a country that is extremely backwards and restrictive to many members of society (women and the lgbt community) I doubt its visited.

My speculation has narrowed down to a Europe or Africa first leg. It's not recommended right now for the race to head to any tropical islands (Carribean or Oceania) because of its recent visit to the French Polynesia.

My spec at the moment is heading towards a long overdue African first leg consisting of North Africa (Marrakech, Morocco outskirts to Gambia to Lagos, Nigeria). That way, two new Africa countries visited and a flight into Europe via Frankfurt or London is race-friendly which could create a gateway to a new European country possibly in the former Yugoslavian region again since season 12.

Here's mine:

Since this board is now open, I am willing to guess that this race before the week is over (I'm guessing Saturday)
Mostly like not departing from LAX.

Itll most likely visit;
South America, Africa, Europe, Asia and North America :)

Don't y'all get too worked up yet. The new board has much more to do with MY schedule than TAR's.  :oh

Colombia definitely, just cause of the drug war. Not sure about Venezuela.

Nope, Venezuela isn't listed on the travel warning list according to the official website, Colombia is.

Just a few thoughts.
The last Los Angeles to Europe start was in 14, and Amazing Race hasn't gone to Europe first since 17. Either Europe won't be the first continent or Los Angeles won't be the start city.
Amazing Race has alternated Australia and New Zealand every 4-5 seasons for a while, an Australia visit won't be likely for this season.
Brazil is hosting the World Cup in 2014. I do think Brazil will be visited in one of the next two seasons, it doesn't hurt that it hasn't been visited since 18.
Africa has been present in 3 of the last 4 seasons, I think this season will skip it.
My prediction is 3-4 continents in total. USA, Central or South America, Europe, Asia, USA.

Based off of headhunters spec i would say the route could be:

Los Angeles -> Central America -> Brazil -> Scandinavia -> Eastern Europe -> Middle East? -> India  :gaah: -> Philippines -> USA

Detroit as a finish city would make sense. They're one of the few significant US international airports TAR hasn't used yet, you get a lot of daylight filming hours this time of year, and there are a good number of nice places in the area where they could film tasks in relative privacy.

Middle East, I would think, is still off the boundaries due to the Arab Spring and some Islamisation in Yemen.

I like the way you think! :lol:

Also, I know a perfect place they could finish the race: Meadowbrook Mansion in Rochester Hills. It is fancy, secluded, and can be rented out. Plus, there are tons of things they could do here!

I have a feeling we will see Detroit in the near future.
