So it looks as though our leg was NOT in Doha, but was in Abu Dhabi instead!

Such a lovely part of the world, and finally, not a Dubai leg in the UAE! :D

Sadly, no. Phil and I did not get our Nepal wish...this time!

Abu Dhabi, is that just a connection point or is that an official leg there?
Have there been any double legs (legs in the same country) outside of Chile?

I tried to follow the timeline, but I am confused by all of this new info.
Thanks to everyone who has made this a fun race to watch live! :)

EDIT: I meant to post this in the speculation and discussion thread. Sorry!

 :welcome: to RFF, headhunter! And locations is fine for any confirmed spots. :yess:
 
Yes, Abu Dhabi is a confirmed leg...it replaces our assumptions about Doha.

Double legs:
Chile: Iquique
Abu Dhabi (possible one or two, not yet confirmed)
Bandung

So here is our route as we know and SPECULATED so far:

Leg 1 (United States --> Chile) / LAX to Iquique
Leg 2 (Chile) / El bus to Santiago
Leg 3 (Chile --> Portugal) / flight to Lisbon
Leg 4 (Portugal --> Norway) / flight to Svolvaer and possibly into rural area
Leg 5 (Norway --> Poland) / flight to Gdansk
Leg 6 (Poland --> Austria) / flight OR train to Vienna
Leg 7 (Austria --> United Arab Emirates) / flight to Abu Dhabi & desert safari?
Leg 8 (United Arab Emirates) / Abu Dhabi city
Leg 9 (United Arab Emirates --> Indonesia) :res: / flight to Bandung
Leg 10 (Indonesia) / EDIT: Lembang area confirmed by "mellodoo"
Leg 11 (Indonesia --> ??? ) / My speculation lands on Samoa or the Philippines
Leg 12 (??? --> United States) / West Coast (Seattle or SF Bay Area) is an 88% lock

EDIT: It seems like WRP failed again to bring another new country unless my Samoa speculation is correct.

They were in Indonesia for almost 3 days and only did 1 leg? Seems unusual.

We have two legs pretty well discussed, there ARE two legs.

Teams would have arrived on the night of 22 Jun and Phil tweeted about checking-in for his flight out on the morning of 25 Jun. This suggests two days of racing (and two legs), on 23 Jun and 24 Jun.

I edited my quickie summary a short while back but didn't bump it so maybe people haven't seen it, but here it is: http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,28803.msg890121.html#msg890121
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

I said it was "... and SPECULATED" in underlined letters. :lol: There isn't much proof they went anywhere else because then we'd have the evidence in tweet or photo form from a different Middle Eastern country. For now, I'm just specking UAE will provide a city leg and desert leg since in the desert, there isn't phone signal and we haven't seen a single thing other than in the city of Abu Dhabi. Where else could they have gone? Saudi Arabia? :snics:

Peach isn't always 100% correct. (Sorry peach just pouring the truth tea) She hasn't shown us any proof, so we can't be sure. :P
