The Amazing Race Philippines: DryedMangoez Edition – Introduction

What a 2-hour wi-fi enabled plane ride can produce.

I’ve been a fan of The Amazing Race since that very first episode in 2001 and while i’ve had my own route wishlists over the years, I’ve never sat down and put together a whole entire Amazing Race course before. Until now!

A simple wishlist for the upcoming (hopefully) asia-filled 2nd season of The Amazing Race Philippines while stuck on a plane to Utah at the beginning of the month turned into a (surprisingly) fun little project for me.

Drawing inspiration from my own personal (limited) travel and hometown experience with a mix of classic TAR and some generally tourist-y internets-insight, over the next two weeks, I’ll be posting the very special DryedMangoez edition of The Amazing Race Philippines.

Hope it’s interesting enough! =D
