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?

As a Filipino like me, the southern part of the Philippines is terribly dangerous due to an ongoing conflict in Marawi in south-central part of the country at the island of Mindanao. Most of the Philippines is safe, that includes Luzon island and Visayan archipelago.

I remember I saw the local version of TAR, they visited (the island of) Cebu twice and Cebu City is a safe place to visit with notable sites including Magellan's Cross.

My biggest wish is that they would return to the 13-leg routes of old  :love2:

Just having that would cover a multitude of "overused-country-sins" in my book

Or just the style of the single-digit season finales that didn't spend the whole leg in the final city but went to an intermediate place :)

Philippines are almost certainly out. But Nepal... :)
Why almost certain?

And if it's safe for Pechino Express to have people hitchhiking and sleeping over at random houses, it should be fine for more structured and controlled environment like TAR.  :hoot:

Since we've had 2 legs in Europe. I'm hoping for Africa as next one. It has to be South Africa or Mauritius, these 2 are way long overdue then we go back to Europe. TAR normally has 3-4 European legs. I'm hoping for Spain in Madrid, Valencia, Cordoba or Marbella. Then for the final European leg, I'd throw in Czech Republic, Hungary Croatia or new countries such as Slovenia, Macedonia but I'd rather prefer a visit to Israel, a leg in Tel Aviv or Jerusalem would be a great addition aside from being a new country, there's so much to do and should they go there I'd like if the pitstop greeter is the host of TAR Israel. No to overused Asian countries, I would prefer Nepal, Cambodia, Taiwan. Legs in Oceania are what I have been waiting since S.22, very underused part of the world. Any leg in Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and if possible Vanuatu would cap off the route.

This is a wishlist remember. You'll never know. TAR did the Monaco & France then Namibia then The Netherlands in S.26. United Kingdom to Ghana then Sweden in S.17. For older an older season, S.6, Sweden to Senegal then to Germany.

Ghana to Nepal seems like a stretch to me.
I'm generally interested where they will go after Morocco. I'd be surprised if they went to Middle East, but that's a great connection before Asia.

Maybe they'll have a leg somewhere in Eastern Europe before heading to Asia? ???

But there will be one Eastern European leg in Serbia and head down to sub-Saharan leg in Cape Town, South Africa.

Because Serbia has more people than other ex-Yugoslav republics such as those three stated above and Croatia. Belgrade is most visited city in Serbia.

I see what you're saying. I was also unsure about where they would go from Morocco. If they plan on going to Asia, Dubai might be the airport the connect through, since its a big international hub. I have a feeling the destination after Morocco will be Bucharest, as teams can transfer through Madrid from Tangier, and there are flights from Bucharest to Dubai. Also, TAROM operates the flights from Madrid to Bucharest and Bucharest to Dubai, which is not a low-cost airline (meaning not so strict carry-on restrictions). Romania would also fit the theme of "under-visited countries."

What if the routes looks like this:
USA -> Western Europe -> Western Africa -> Eastern Europe -> Eastern Africa or Southern Africa -> Asia -> Australia then back to USA.

Hoping this will come true.  :hoot:

As I stated on my posts above after Tangier would be Belgrade, Serbia. There are limited weekly flights from Tangier to Madrid, then connections to Belgrade within European cities to Vienna, Zurich or Munich.

There is the possibility that they could go on a ferry to Spain from Tangier: a reverse TAR 3

We did just see Antwerp via Amsterdam, so it could be possible
