I will be going on a rtw trip starting in the beginning october for about a year and I'm not sure whether to go east to west or west into east when starting in Paris for optimal climate (I prefer warm weather).
My destinations are very flexible but some of the spots I do not want to miss are: Ethiopia, Iran, Vietnam, Thailand, Chile, Colombia, Guatemala, USA.
Some destinations that are optional are Papua-New-Guinea, India, Kyrgyzstan, South Korea)
Starting in October I was gonna go east from paris, maybe Eastern Europe, down to Turkey, down to Ethiopia, and then Oman, Iran, and off to South East Asia where I would be in around February (maybe meet some friends in Thailand and Indonesia)… after a few months in SE asia, head to to South America and go up north.
Is this direction logical in terms of climate, or is the opposite (starting in Latin America first) a better idea?
