Please Give Advice On RTW Route

I've been planning this trip for a while now. My general route is pretty definite, but not as detailed as I'd like it to be.

The trip has been broken down into two parts. The first part will take my girlfriend and I from Canada to Portugal. We are planning on staying in Portugal for 6-8 months during the winter (2012), then heading north through and across Europe, into Russia, down to Iran, across to Pakistan and India. Form there, things get uncertain, but we still have time to plan that part.

Here is a rough version of the first part of our trip.

Wordpress Route (Part I) - Google Maps

If you can give advice (better side-roads, points of interest worth seeing, etc.) on any small part of the world along our route that you are familiar with, that would be awesome.

Sweet. That route looks quite similar to the first part of our route. We're going to have top spend some time on that site.

Here's my proposed timeline. It's really a rough estimate, so I am hoping to get some feedback from those who have done similar trips as to whether or not we're allowing enough time (or rushing it). I am almost thinking of pushing the trip ahead an extra month to give us a bit more time. We don't want to have to rush.
