To heaven. Duh. Okay, now that we’ve gotten that out of our system, let’s real talk. Every season has some highs and lows in terms of travel. Basically, the way it works is, the Bachelor or Bachelorette mentions some places or activities they’d like to do, and producers do their best to make them happen. You know, like if someone says “romance,” then they get to lay by a trashcan fire in a motorpark. Because, you know, Paris was closed that weekend.

So, where is Desiree Hartsock hauling her harem of hotties to on The Bachelorette Season 9? Well, just like most other seasons, the romance will kick off in the hose-slicked driveway of Bachelor Mansion in Agoura, California. Then, after Des sloughs off some dead cells — and takes a little jaunt to Ojai — she will take her 13 remaining dudes to the second most romantic place on earth: Atlantic City.

How do you top Atlantic City? Germany. You take them to Germany. We’re not sure exactly what went down there, except that some sort of sledding on steep mountains seems to have gone down (literally). Which sounds like something Sean Lowe would have made his dates do. Nothing helps with the trauma of a bad date like passing it on...

Next up, the troupe dropped a few dudes, and the remaining eight headed to Spain. Let’s hope there was some flamenco dancing and paella. Perhaps a lecture on the differences between the regional dialects, topped off by a lesson in the tannin content of native tempranillo grapes? We don’t know yet what happened, but three of the dudes get to keep their experience as a memento on their flight home.

Reality Steve says that post-Spain, they stopped over in neighboring Portugal — and Des got some girl time with special guests Lesley Murphy, Catherine Giudici, and Jackie Parr. After Europe, Des headed back to the States for hometown dates in Oregon, Utah, and more. So, where are they heading for the finale? RS had originally said Pari, but is now pretty positive that Des will finally get to rock out with her insane abs out in the Caribbean
