NOW THAT'S CROSS-PROMOTION: The IcelandAir website tells you everything you need to know if you want to visit Iceland and "trace the race" yourself.
I remember reading somewhere that last season's trip to The Philippines was as a result of lobbying from the country's tourism bureau, and I don't have any quarrel with that. Where they send the Racers has no impact on the outcome (save some kind of 'I grew up there' thing, though that didn't Racers in consecutive final legs), and it's not like they're going to send people anyplace uninteresting or non-photogenic. No matter how much lek they send Bertram van Munster, the Race isn't coming to Albania anytime soon . . .
