The Amazing Race wrapped up its 27th season last Friday.
During the season the show visited 10 countries and traveled 34,000 miles. One team dominated the race, the Green Team, engaged couple Justin & Diana. However, they couldn’t win when it mattered most. Reporters and couple, Kelsey & Joey took home the $1 million prize.
The Amazing Race Season 28 will debut in 2016 filled with social media stars. (Can’t say that I’ve heard of any of them!)
When I came across an article from CNN about the Amazing Race host Phil Keoghan’s Top 10 Destinations, I was curious to find out which places made the cut.
Considering Phil’s been all around the world (thanks in part to the Amazing Race), my guess would be that some great places would be chosen.
From the article, I learned that Koeghan has been traveling since around 3 years old due to his father’s career, bringing the family to live in a variety of international destinations.
Here are Phil Keoghan’s picks for Top 10 Destinations:
- Stromboli, Aeolian Islands, Italy
- Antigua and Barbuda
- New Chums Beach, Coromandel, New Zealand
- Pagosa Springs, Colorado
- Niue Island, South Pacific
- Queenstown, New Zealand
- Costa Rica
- Coober Pedy, Australia
- Kauai, Hawaii
Two countries have two places which made the list- the U.S. and New Zeland, Keoghan’s birthplace. The places selected tend to focus on the outdoors.
And one place which really surprised me was Antigua and Barbuda. It was selected for an interesting reason. Keoghan spent 8 years growing up there. According to CNN, Keoghan said he “learned about connecting with people from all walks of life“.
