For me any Mediterranean leg is a joy to see as it is one of my favorite European destinations. Spain, Greece, Croatia, Malta... Hoping for double legs in Spain in the future.

I have been to Riga many times in my life, with the most recent occasion in mid-December.
It is a very populated city and tasks in the old town region would provide an amazing chaotic urban leg!

Haha, surely, but I could see them thinking "what else is there unique that Vilnius can offer", while Riga would seem cool just by adding a new country in Latvia. :P

The Race should really visit Ibiza  :funny:

If they visit Ibiza, they MUST do a task involving the song!  :funny:

Do you mean I took a pill in Ibiza?

If the next season were to be an All Star season (this is purely hypothetical), what would you guys think about having vote for all the teams that are cast? So something similar to what they did for Survivor Cambodia Second Chance.

I feel like TAR is presently on the 'throw it in the air and see if it sticks' course of routing, thus an unrealistic but still feasibly possible routing:

LEG 1 - Los Angeles, CA to Manila, Philippines
LEG 2 - to Atauro Is., East Timor1
LEG 3 - to Ainaro, East Timor [NEL]
LEG 4 - to Baku, Azerbaijan
LEG 5 - to Novi Sad, Serbia2,3 [KOR]
LEG 6 - to Herceg Novi, Montenegro
LEG 7 - to Amman, Jordan
LEG 8 - to Petra NP, Jordan [NEL]
LEG 9 - to Simisiut, Greenland, Denmark4
LEG 10 - to Newcastle, England
LEG 11 - to North Brabant province, Netherlands5
LEG 12 - to Seattle, WA

Notes-
1 - if I could find flights to Dili, then so could any reasonable travel agent TAR paid to stay open the entire night.  :)
2 - teams would fly from Baku to Belgrade and then drive themselves from there (not for long though lol)
3 - there is, conveniently enough, a daily bus from Novi Sad to Budva, which is close enough for teams to drive themselves (again!)
4 - actually viable and not -AS- aggressively expensive or difficult to do; Phil would definitely need a lead up before and some way to get ahead of teams afterward.
5 - teams travel by ferry from Newcastle to Amsterdam, then drive several hundred kilometers to get to Eindhoven for most of the leg and Biesbosch for the Pit Stop
