The Amazing Race is one of my favorite TV shows to watch. I just love to see them traveling the world and doing all sorts of fun and interesting competitions. The Travel Companion book contains a list of places to check out that were featured on past seasons of the race.  The book is broken down by continent and then the locations and also lets you know which season and episode of the race it was featured on.  There were only a handful of locations that I had actually visited myself and so many more I’d absolutely love to check out! It also was fun to see the recaps of the challenges, road blocks, uturns, etc that happened at the locations on the show and try to see how many of them I had remembered watching.

If you’re looking for places to see on your next vacation – definitely check out this book. Or if you’re just a fan of the show and want to relive some of the iconic destinations they have visited and find out some of how things work behind the scenes you’ll want to check it out too!

I received a free e-copy of this book from NetGalley in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
