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

With the whole Fiji and Taiwan sponsoring that one casting call, I made a route that features them that I would love for Season 30.

1. Nadi, Fiji
2. Melbourne, Australia (flights get in at late afternoon, giving time for a nightlife task)
3. Tasmania, Australia
4. Taipei, Taiwan (and other spots via train, Taiwan would want that)
5. Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia
6. Hyderabad, India (a pearl/diamond task to set it apart from other India legs)
7. Alexandria, Egypt
8. Prague, Czech Republic (and rural areas too)
9. Freetowne, Sierra Leone
10. Sierra Leone
11. Dublin, Ireland (and rural areas too)
12. Boston, USA

5 Continents, 10 Countries, and Over 32,000 Miles!

The problem with Japan is, TAR have ruined it by going to Tokyo too many times

As ianthebalance suggested on his post above, a sponsorship from the casting call shown above that includes Fiji and Taiwan would include the route for season 30.

START: Pasadena City Hall, Pasadena, California, USA

1: Mamanuca Islands, Fiji (legs within tropical paradise in Malolo Lailai and Malolo Islands nearby; similar to Legs 1 & 2 of TAR 22 and Leg 1 of TAR 25) 1
2: Nadi, Fiji (possible rugby task in Lautoka)
3: Melbourne, Australia
4: Taipei, Taiwan
5: Siem Reap, Cambodia (revisit Angkor Wat and rural areas)
6: Port Elizabeth, South Africa (wildlife and water sports tasks)*
7: Cape Town, South Africa
8: Rovaniemi, Lapland, Finland (ice plunging and cross country skiing tasks in spring) 2^*
9: Brussels, Belgium (and nearby towns)
10: Madrid, Spain (TAR would get its first visit through the Spanish capital) ^
11: Dublin, Ireland
12: Seattle, Washington, USA (hasn't been visited since season 10)

5 continents, 10 countries and 35,000 miles

* - Self-driving leg
^ - Involves overnight train ride

1 - Teams would take a single provided flight from Los Angeles to Nadi with a scheduled departure time at 11:30 pm and arrive at 5:50 am. Once landing in Nadi, they must take one of three charter flights to Malolo Lailai Islands within 20-minutes apart
2 - Teams are told to travel by plane to Helsinki, Finland and would get their next clue at Helsinki Airport to take an overnight train to Finnish Lapland (think TAR 22)

...well this is awkward; here's a TAR 30 prospective route. Only 11 legs because #budget but

LEG 1 - Los Angeles, CA to Calgary to Banff National Park, Canada*1
LEG 2 - to Dublin, Ireland
LEG 3 - to Waterford, Ireland*
LEG 4 - to the Black Forest, Germany*2
LEG 5 - to Malkerns, Swaziland3
LEG 6 - to Nelspruit, South Africa*
LEG 7 - to Mumbai, India
LEG 8 - to Taichung, Taiwan
LEG 9 - to the Yasawa Islands, Fiji4
LEG 10 - to the Sabeto Valley, Fiji*
LEG 11 - to Los Angeles, CA

5 continents, 9 countries, 30,000 miles~

Notes-
*self-driving leg
1 - teams would arrive in Calgary at night for a task or two, then travel by bus to Banff the next morning (think TAR 28)
2 - teams would be told their next clue was located in Freiburg, Germany, inside a car parked at the train station, leaving teams to ~*figure out*~ how to get there (what airport to fly into, how to get to Freiburg from there, etc)
3 - teams would travel by train to Frankfurt then fly to Manzini in Swaziland, where they're given a hired driver and a map and are told to direct him or her to wherever they want to go to
4 - teams fly into Nadi, then take a ferry to the Yasawas for the leg

I wish they visited Latvia for season 30. Riga has many direct flights to other European countries so it would be a very convenient stop for the race!

So basically RFF's TAR 30  is

LA to Fiji
Fiji
Fiji to Australia
Australia to Taiwan
Taiwan to Philippines
Philippines
Philippines to South Africa
South Africa
South Africa to Finland
Finland to Spain
Spain to Ireland
Ireland to US

...which is a pretty good route (double Philippines could be swapped for double Taiwan but whatever) and probably fits #21days12legs better than most recent seasons lol. I would gladly accept a producer credit if this got used :)
