A rough plan for my trip, any recommendations?

[There's a map in the post to get a visual idea of where I'll be] So this is a general idea of the areas I plan to cover over the next few months. From China through Kazakhstan will be overland, then potentially a flight to Georgia, and then overland to Turkey. After I get to Turkey (if indeed I get there), I hope to head into Eastern Europe, but really have no idea where I might go. I have this planned up to this point due to the fact that I had to arrange visas for China and Russia before leaving and had to report general trajectory. You can click on the map or here to see a more interactive version through Google Maps. Any comments or recommendations would be great!
