They could go to Saint Petersburg and do a caviar switchback, since we have a team of competitive eaters :funny:

Uh, got a hunch we probably won't be seeing Russia in the near future. With the whole "They are an election-meddling boogeyman" media narrative of the past year, imagine the pundits getting at that one.

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.

Claude, just wondering why you're so adament over Belgrade. Belgrade isn't exactly the nicest European city as so much was destroyed in the Balkan war so it's just a lot of nast Soviet tower blocks. Kotor, Zagreb, Dubrovnik, Mostar, Sarejevo & Lake Bled would suit better. I would love Prague or Budapest though.

So how about Romania? Another underused country last visited in TAR 14, Bucharest has not had a full leg. So I should change Serbia to Romania for Leg 4 destination after Morocco.
My posts are fine, so please be careful.

Okay, Belgrade really has soviet like buildings, but in the other hand, there are few beuatiful locations for filming TAR, check Kalemegdan, Avala, and, of course Hram Svetog Save. Not to mention that they can go to even more beutiful places in Serbia, but outside Belgrade.

Romania would be great but i'd prefer Sibiu and Sighisoara

Would love for a second African country. It's actually been a long time since they did more than one country on the continent. I suppose because flight options are severely lacking compared to the rest of the world.

Zambia/Zimbabwe S27 doesn't really count since the border was right there.

I mean the continent as a whole :)

Speaking of which, I wonder how safe Suriname and Guyana are on South America. They're so close to completing the whole continent. Excluding Venezuela, that's obviously never going to happen with the disaster it is now (I know somebody from there, he's in Chile now)

From Morroco, maybe there will be a long overdue visit to the Canary Islands. Or maybe a return to Senegal.

I reckon they've done a second Morocco leg and gone unnoticed. They could've gone to Merzouga, Chechaoen, Fes, Meknes or Casablanca.

Unless they finally threw in Gibraltar!

Eh, Saint Tropez is a weird one. They did visit the French Riviera only in S26 but they never saw Saint Tropez. I hope they visited Cannes whilst they were there but as there weren’t any sightings I doubt it. France is really overused though and if they did France again I would of wanted a new region like Boredeaux for the wine, Lyon or a visit to Mont St. Michel. Next I feel like Switzerland or Italy is looming. If it is Italy though a trip to Portofino & Cinque Terre would be lovely.

France overtook Germany in Season 28 as the most seasons visited to a European country. 26 was at least a new country, a tiny one, but it's a country. Somewhere in the east next would be great before they finish with Europe.

Not happy to see a French overdose (4 out of the last 5 seasons have France)

It was like TAR19 - 23 all over again with Indonesia

They may just go to Asia after this. If the leg in Saint Tropez is Leg 5, then Legs 6-8 could be in Asia and Legs 9-11 could be in Oceania.

It's alright. Had never even heard of this city, personally. Only place I know down that way aside from Monaco is Nice.

Hoping we could get Israel for its first US visit after Nice. Jerusalem is a most visited city in Israel with historical landmarks such as Wailing Wall, Dome of the Rock, Jaffa Gate, Tower of David, Yad Vashem, Mount Zion and Church of the Holy Sepulchre.

Looking at Nice airport departures, and I doubt they will go to their next location with direct flight, since at the morning there are flights to main European hubs (Munich, Amsterdam, Zurich, Frankfurt, Paris, Rome, London...), only "unusual" and eastern Europe direct flights could be Warsaw, Cluj-Napoca in Romania, and Istanbul.

Wishlist for this:

Pre-Leg: New York City, New York, USA.

Leg 1: USA -> Reykjavik, Iceland.
Leg 2: Iceland -> Antwerp, Belgium.
Leg 3: Belgium -> Tangier, Morocco.
Leg 4: ? , Morocco (How about a leg in Casablanca?)
Leg 5: Morocco -> St. Tropez, France.
Leg 6: Nice, France or Cannes, France or Provence, France would look good!
Leg 7: France -> Tel Aviv or Jerusalem, Israel.
Leg 8: Israel -> Kathmandu, Nepal.
Leg 9: Nepal -> Australia.
Leg 10: Australia.
Leg 11: Australia -> New Zealand or any leg in Oceania.
Leg 12: New Zealand or Oceania -> USA.

Israel-Nepal would make a great combo to complete this season!   :conf:
