What works for some people is a satnav/GPS and set it to point of interest/sight seeing. Often you can run the route(s) at home and look for all POI near it. That way you can look them up on internet. But if you like surprises, just set the box on 'museums and sights' and every time something flashes up you make a decision based on the time you have. ...

I don't know if you've already gone on your trip or not, but this information might still be of some future use to you, or anyone else who views this question.

If you have to take a turn or follow a (different) particular road often, you can calculate your route using Via Michelin and look at the details.

I'm afraid it's more difficult than you realise. You can certainly stay in various South American or South-East Asian countries. You are almost certainly not allowed to work there, even remotely, but it's probably possible to get away with doing it. Europe is another matter. The Schengen agreement was intended to make some things easier but it's not ...
