Pakistan to Europe

Its been bit of a damper. The trip date has been pushed back and it looks more like early/mid May. Major set back delay in arrival of my steady steed G650GS from Chicago. The forwarders are just taking too long. Most things are sorted except the carnets can only be done once the bike gets to Pakistan. I still need some kind of advice on what night stops to make in Iran on the outbound leg. My plan is Zahedan, Yazd, Esfahan, Urmia. Any second opinions? I will finalise the Turkish itinerary soon and post it for review.
Thanks

Crossed into south east Turkey a week ago and there was snow on the high peaks but not the road.Cold early mornings and at night but as soon a you drop below 1000ft it's warm.
Cross at the Serow border, the road to Van is amazing.

Thanks Pete
I hope you and Caf have a safe ride back. My schedule is pushed back because of delays with Pakistan customs to clear my bike.
