Im hoping for a big leap soon. 5 legs in Western Europe (with the exception of Tangier but still very close to Europe) is enough for me. Time to head east (or extremely south)!

Agreed. Hopefully either a lesser-seen eastern European country or we're done with Europe after France.

South Africa is more likely and that is a way long overdue since the post-first AS era.

When there are 2 new locations in France, might as well head to Seychelles for the 2nd time visit. That's my wishlist.

Seychelles is very unlikely for now, but the population is not less than 80,000 people. Air France has 3x weekly flights from Paris to Cape Town.

So it's not Seychelles then. I think it's time a South Africa leg will be part of it.  That's why we can agree that Morocco is only one leg, the other leg must be in South Africa. I believe you.

I'm just waiting for legs in South Africa, Australia, New Zealand. Way long overdue. The next legs better not be overused Asian countries.  :groan:

As long as they visit a country in Oceania, I'm more than happy.  :conf:

Nepal. One of my favorite places in the world. I SO want them to be going there.

They've done that before in seasons 1 (Zambia -> France -> Tunisia -> Italy) & 6 (Sweden -> Senegal -> Germany, & France -> Ethiopia). Plus 10 (Madagascar -> Finland -> Ukraine -> Morocco) and 26 (Monaco -> Namibia -> Netherlands) had the form of Africa -> Europe -> Africa or Europe -> Africa -> Europe. Something else to note was that the UAE leg from Season 5 was originally supposed to be in Istanbul, in which case it'd be like Season 26 (Russia -> Egypt -> Tanzania -> Turkey).

That being said, we shouldn't rule out another visit to Africa.

Also, on a side note, Tangier is only 8 miles south of Spain, so yeah it technically is located on the continent of Africa, but like, come on. :)

This is more changed after Prague sightings. Mozambique could be next after Czech Republic that may continue of using trend with 1-time underused country visits.

I like the idea of Mozambique though I feel like there were enough difficulties getting into, out of, and around it that it might not be visited again.

A certain user or users might be interested in the daily flight

OK 5288 (that's Czech Airlines) PRG TLV 2345 0435 (+1)

(There are several other direct flights both on Czech Air and on various low-cost airlines arriving throughout the day. Make of this what you will :angel)

That's a factor I'd assume has dissuaded a Nepal visit for so long. They've only got one international airport serving the entire country, which would make the logistics to plan it as part of a route trickier.

I could rule out Nepal that has only one international airport as Maanca was right.

The next destination list would be trickier as follows:

Leg 7: Cape Town, South Africa
Leg 8: Chiang Mai, Thailand or Phnom Penh/Siem Reap, Cambodia
Leg 9: Jakarta, Indonesia
Legs 10 and 11: Melbourne, Australia and nearby surrounding areas*

Then the final destination in the West Coast (California) for the finish line.

* Those areas near Melbourne would be placed such as Geelong/Port Campbell (Great Ocean Road)/Healesville/Castlemaine/Sunbury/Bendigo/Ballarat.

2 legs in South Africa would fit right well next leg then 1 Asian leg preferably the not overused ones then 2 legs in Australia.

Every time they went MIA they usually are in India? For what it's worth I think they hit Asia already.

Actually, India is celebrating Diwali/Deepavali in the entire country and could be getting rule out for now. I guess teams are heading to (non-Maghreb area) South Africa, an underused country has not visited for a long time since TAR 7.
