Not interested, but keep in mind the following:
- Your driving licence will not be valid in most of the countries on the way
- Your insurance may not be valid in most of the countries on the way
- You will need winter tires going through Central Europe in December - how will you change tires once you get to the warmer countries?
- Most of the world drives on the right side of the road
- Visas
- Prepare for complications driving through Iran and Pakistan. You may sit at the border for weeks.
etc, etc, etc...

Hoping to arrive in NZ by July. Granted we are probably going to stop driving in Eastern Europe, then carry on by Plane, Train and Bus. I want to spend alot of my time in SE Asia.

For example, India. There you'll need an International Drivers Permit.

In Burma not even the International Permit will do. He'll need a Burmese licence. Where do you think the OP will get one of those from?

I can't be bothered to look the rest of them up now.

If you stick the car in a ship in Romania/Bulgaria/Greece you'll be fine. You can drive all the way there within the EU and thus won't need any permits/licences. Thessaloniki port in Greece might be a good place - if you're planning to ship the car over, that is (will cost some £2000+ with insurance, though).
