All I need to say is 3 things. One, thank you to all judges, participants and of course, the host Kandace, for making this such a fun game to play in! Secondly (moving on to design points), yes there is a general flying theme to the leg, and that was done deliberately, and finally please excuse the quality of some of my pictures, I'm on an iPad so yeah...
But anyways, I hope you enjoy both my wiki and final design, and hope to hear from judges, and followers, alike!
Oh, and special shoutouts to Panama City, Simon Bolivar, Miami and mancala xo
PS: the RB example are all based on flights found on Kayak, they are rudimentary and not the only possible combinations
