One of my favorites shows will be starting it’s new season on September 29.

The Amazing Race is back on CBS- Sunday nights at 8pm ET with a new cast of traveling competitors.

If you love travel then The Amazing Race is for you. Each week teams of two travel to destinations all over the world getting clues and completing various tasks. The winning team shares a prize of $1 million! I’ve been watching the show since it debuted in 2001.

Here is some info from The Amazing Race site:

The Amazing Race is a multi-Emmy Award-winning reality series hosted by Emmy Award- nominated host Phil Keoghan, which pits 11 teams, each comprised of two members, against each other on a trek around the world for approximately 25 days. At every destination, each team must compete in a series of challenges, some mental and some physical, and only when the tasks are completed will they learn of their next location. Teams who are the farthest behind will gradually be eliminated as the contest progresses, with the first team to arrive at the final destination winning $1 million.

TV Food Maps: A Great Resource

I recently added a new link to the Travel Resources list of Michael W Travels. The link is for a website that I find to be extremely useful and something that I seem to be using all of the time.

TV Food Maps is an incredible resource that helps you find places featured on those travel- food shows. You can check them out online or use the even more useful mobile apps. Apps are available for Android, iPhone and iPad.
