Let me know your thoughts again!

If your only logistical concern is Novosibirsk to Accra, you could switch out Novosibirsk for Moscow or St. Petersburg, unfortunately missing out in the race of shame switchback; but every switchback has been lackluster anyway.

And why Khujand over Dushanbe?

And why Khujand over Dushanbe?

Okay well after doing a little research (I made the map last night but added detail this morning so I forgot about the flights), it wouldn't be too hard for an OVB-ACC flight.

And I chose Khujand over Dushanbe because each race seems to have one new location that is not the major city or a location that people think of when they think of that country. 29 had Alesund, 28 had Cartagena and Shenzhen, 27 had Rotterdam, and in each of the other countries, they had one city that is either not the major city (like Taipei, Oslo, and Valencia) or has been visited by Amazing Race before (like Novosibirsk), so I wanted to shake it up with Khujand. Plus, Khujand is the site of Cyropolis, which could maybe create some cool tasks.

My main problem with your map is Medellin to New Orleans. Usually, with newer TAR seasons, the final city is a city that can be flown to nonstop from the previous city. If you're looking for a Latin American country, I'd consider Panama City, Cancún, or Punta Cana.

Also, instead of Taipei, maybe consider Kaohsiung? I used both in my map, but if I only did one leg in Taiwan it would've been just Kaohsiung, because every season so far has gone to Taipei and Kaohsiung has so much to offer.

Other than, it's a cool map

Obviously, newer seasons since TAR 28, the final 3 teams may not release the departure times at the start of the final leg. In case, they got a flight to the final American city.

Medellin has two airports, Jose Maria Cordova International Airport is the busiest in the city and does have direct flights to some American cities (only AA operates the flight to Miami). The other airport, Enrique Olaya Herrera Airport, serves only limited domestic scheduled flights. Even more, they have to take a free transportation from Medellin to El Dorado International Airport in Bogota and could get a flight to New Orleans via Houston or Dallas.

Okay I guess definitely 23 and 26 weren't direct flights, but where did they say they took those flights? 22 they flew out of London, so that was a direct flight, but, again with the exception of 23 and 26, all other of those have options for nonstop. There are direct flights from Seoul to Chicago, Guangzhou to LAX (because they flew out of Guangzhou not Shenzhen), HKG to NYC, Manila to LAX, London to Vegas, London to Washington, Paris to NYC, Osaka to Honolulu, Panama City to Atlanta, Rio to Miami, Seoul to LAX, and Shanghai to San Francisco. Alaska was tricky because it's incredibly difficult to get direct flights outside of the US to Alaska as the only options are Canada, Reykjavik, Frankfurt and Kamchatka. 26 is really the only real exception to this rule.

I personally would really love a final leg in New Orleans. Beautiful city, and as music composition major, I would love to see tasks related to the jazz culture there. That being said, I think we'll have to see penultimate legs in Cancun, Panama City, Frankfurt or London.

I don't mean to come off as s***ting on your map, but I wanted to help make it a bit more realistic.

Dakar needs two legs imo, and I'd exchange Leg two for either Ireland or Spain
Canberra isn't the best penultimate city, another Australian city would be better

Madagascar would probably not be visited because Phil said production had a lot of trouble there, and I don't know anything Bout Rwunion, but it's a pretty nice route otherwise. :)

Reunion is an overseas territory of France sandwiched between Mauritius and Madagascar. It's a small tropical island.
Yeah, I do know that. :lol:
I just meant that race-wise, I'm not sure if it can be visited.

There are flights from Paris, Africa, and Asia, so I don't think that it would be too hard to get too.
