London to Brisbane travel timing question
I am currently planning a trip starting next year 2006 shipping bike to London and riding back to Aus taking about a year. It is a long way off yet I know, but I am trying to work out where I need to be (approximately) on the trip for each season.
My plan is to arrive in London at start of May 06 and immediately head south to Spain or even Morocco, then slowely travel north through western Europe as weather warms, then south through eastern europe, to Turkey, then Iran, Pakistan, India and Nepal. That's the usual route from europe to Aus, nothing new there then.
But I am wanting some advice on how long to spend in west & east Europe before starting overland through Turkey and Asia. I am mostly thinking about weather and onset of winter, but any other reasons/opinions to be in or out of countries by a time also appeciated.
I will do more detailed planning later in the year, but never too detailed, I like flexibility to do or change things at short notice.
