So next leg I see 2 options. First is just to stay fairly local with maybe Bruges, Luxembourg or Cologne?

Or we could go to West Africa, Senegal, The Gambia, Ghana or Ivory Coast would be really cool.

I'm hoping for Africa next. Maybe they'll return to Europe after.
Lowkey lurking until TAR returns.
I'm back!!!
Slowly fading now that TAR30 filming is over.

They could do it like that, as they did in previous seasons (TAR 6 for example). If not, a visit to Spain, Czech Republic, or East European countries would be nice. I only ask them not to visit the overused France, Italy or Germany.

Maybe this will finally be the season of Nepal :) Elise's retweet of an article in which she mentions it gives me hope.

Yeah that's why I'm hopeful too. Doubtfall but quoting Snow "Hope is the only thing stronger than fear"... bit of a Hunger Games fan  :funny:

How about Taiwan and Fiji eventually? Their tourism boards both sponsored open calls if i remember correctly.

The only possibility that first time Spanish cities such as Alicante/Cordoba/Granada/Madrid/Malaga/Valencia have to be visited.
My posts are fine, so please be careful.

Fiji would be an interesting but not unexpected one. Amazing Race has given away a few trips there, Survivor's filmed the last 3 seasons there. CBS apparently has an eye for that country.

Probably another Belgium leg? (ala TAR28 Mexico/Colombia x2)

Would be cool to have the old school Europe - Africa x2 - Europe sequence like the old days!

Flights from Brussels tomorrow night : Tel Aviv (with an earlier flight in the morning for the crew)

I was going to say we'll probably get another leg in Belgium or somewhere fairly close (people keep hoping for Luxembourg which is novel but E X P E N S I V E especially since they could just make an easy leg in Germany or France or even the Netherlands). It fits the pattern from other eastward races (TAR 25-27-28-kinda 29) with

Day 1 - starting line
Day 2 - leg 1 finishes
Day 3 - rest/travel
Day 4 - leg 2 finishes
Day 5 - leg 3 finishes

I definitely think that the next leg will probably be in Belgium, especially since it is an underused country. However, I'm still hoping that leg 3 is in Africa.

We're looking at a 22 day race. I'd guess the route would be a reverse TAR 22:

Europe (4 legs): Iceland, Belgium are the first 2 legs. The Netherlands is right on the border to Antwerp. Germany logically follows afterward.

Africa (2 legs as usual): South Africa is overdue. Durban is a nice destination.

Asia (2 legs): Southeast Asia or India.

Oceania (3 legs): A combination of Australia and Fiji.

Leg 12: USA west coast, probably SD (close to LA)

I expect another European leg in the Mediterranean after Belgium, it would be as follows:
Update after leg 3 confirmation

1. Reykjavik, Iceland
2. Antwerp, Belgium
3. Tangier, Morocco
4. Belgrade, Serbia
5. Cape Town, South Africa
6. Delhi, India
7. Taipei, Taiwan
8. Cebu (City), Philippines
9. Geelong and Queenscliff, Australia
10. Melbourne, Australia

North America -> Europe -> Africa -> Europe -> Africa -> Asia -> Oceania -> North America (5 continents, 10 countries and a rough 38,000 miles)

South Africa will have two legs that follows a tradition of double African legs in previous seasons. Australia will also have two legs within Melbourne area and surroundings.

I don't think you know that. I think for 30 we may have a longer route. :tup:

Claude, it is interesting you have put down the Philippines in your route. I know you are from there, but isn't the Philippines quite dangerous now?
HOWE DOES HE DO THAT?

One thing that's pretty likely, yeah, is if they started in New York, for the final leg to be in the LA vicinity. Has been the pattern for 19, 20 straight seasons now. Must save a little money in the budget to start and/or end near home base.

Of course, I will be greatly pleased if they break this tradition :)
