I just hope that they'll visit Nepal or Laos in the next legs to keep up with the first good locations that we have.


US President Barrack Obama is in Myanmar / Burma right now if they want to come and say  :hello2:

Over the course of 22 seasons, I would be fine if they visited Indonesia - or any country - three times. Because that way, you are visiting the country on an average of once every seven seasons. But to completely ignore somewhere for 18 seasons and then visit it three times in the next four seasons is nothing short of disgraceful and unoriginal in my book. :res: I don't want to see ANY country that frequently on TAR. Seriously, we need something new and fresh every time. (:;)

Couldn't possibly be more disappointed unless they hit India or China again... :res:
1. Don't pick up the phone - You know he's only calling 'cause he's drunk and alone.
2. Don't let him in - You have to kick him out again.
3. Don't be his friend - You know you're gonna wake up in his bed in the morning.
And if you're under him, you ain't gettin' over him. ♥

Why Indonesia??? We just visited there? I was thinking, this has to be the best route ever, THEN Indonesia happens. Is Indonesia the new India. C'mon!

I am more surprised by two tropical islands...BoraBora and Bali? Interesting!

This.

IIRC, Phil has said in interviews that he doesn't necessarily like visiting islands, and now it looks like we're getting Bora Bora for two legs and now Bali. Hopefully, the producers have found tasks that aren't super-repetitive.

Get away from the tourist beaches and Bali is a delight...The whole North part of the island could be wonderful.

Peach, you took the words right out of my mouth. Both Bali and BoraBora/Tahiti are considered legendary places to Americans to want to travel to, and I can't believe just having those two in that category this early in one Race isn't laying the groundwork for more such places this time around.

Bali is interesting as it has a unique culture from the rest of Indonesia. Well Indonesia is ethnically diverse anyway.
I'm not disappointed they went to Bali, but I hope this season is geographically diverse. They just had 2 legs in a tropical island. Now they're in Bali. I hope they visit mountainous regions, crowded cities, picturesque towns in the upcoming legs. It's winter. I hope they at least visit a snow clad region perhaps in Northern Europe.
Oh Brian, I can't wait til after dinner. Cos then we'll go home and you can watch me have my period.

so were already now in the middle of the leg for TAR 22 and the latest one is in Bali for leg 4 and hopefully after Bali, they should go to my country, PHILIPPINES for leg 5/6! :gaah:

...and after Leg 5/6 will they go to Africa or Europe?

Wow, the 2nd leg in Indonesia for this season could be a switchback from one of the legs from TAR 21, EXCITING.

I think the route so far is inspired. And a leg in Nepal with the Himalayas is just what HD TAR needs. Canterbury region of New Zealand is really gorgeous, so that'll be awesome and Tahiti and Bora Bora are iconic places, and from what I've heard the tasks sound awesome. Add to that the definite story of the Father/Son, the grumpy-fiercely competitive asian team and the awesome older Alabama team, plus heaps of other entertaining looking racers, I think we have a real season on our hands. Now all that we need is for the editors to do it justice...goodness I am hoping.

There should have been 2 legs in New Zealand.

Also Australia has magnificent scenery which in HD is spectacular.

I smell an aroma that this may have been inspired from TAR Asia 4's "exotic locations" themed race. Tahiti, New Zealand, and Indonesia are all VERY uniquely characterized countries. I'm not sure about tying Melbourne into the mix. I like the choice of Perth and Tasmania better.

I'm also getting so tired of Europe that I just want to :gaah: if they go there this season, even new European countries and revisiting long, old ones like Portugal or Greece. :crazy: Call me crazy if you want. The last time WRP skipped Europe (excluding Family Edition) was season 2... 20 seasons ago! :oh

I'm happy they even came to NZ. And I think they should have done only one, I don't like 2 legs one after the other in a country if its in the same place (eg TAR 21 in Dhaka two legs) just no real change of scenery which is boring. I also don't think Leg 4 was in Melbourne?...

A season without Europe is like a season without Asia me think. Season 2 skipped Europe because they did FOUR legs in Aus/NZ.
It is an extremely diverse continent (like Asia), culturally AND naturally, everything being so concentrated (which is probably the reason why South America & Africa aren't visited each season)
And I think that a race should have more than just one leg (NZ) in a developed country (without counting French Polynesia, being part of France), while all others are in developping countries (could be a bit repetitive).
Europe is also quite easy to travel from one country to another, and less costly too, the mode of transportation used most of the time in the last couple of seasons being the train and not the plane...

I disagree with this so much, Europe is my favorite continent for the race to visit. But dont worry, due to many legs in europe in Season 21, Season 22 will probably only have 2-3 legs in europe.

I love Europe too, but too much of anything makes it seem boring. We need a break from Europe and some other places *cough, Indonesia, cough*

From my point of view, I could care less what countries they go to or how many times they go there.

Countries are a limited pool, one of these days we will run out!

But the world is a wondrous place...and as long as they show me NEW PLACES, that is all I need!  :yess:

Hopefully Australia on the next season of TAR. There should have been 2 legs in New Zealand and 2 legs in Australia.

Ashame Australia was only a transit to get to Indonesia - (Indonesia again).
