Bucket List Trip

Context: I've got a disease, I live in North America, it isn't contagious, there isn't a cure, and before it kills me I want to take one last trip.
My budget is 10,000 dollars (the rest of my money will be donated to some charity after I pass). The theme of this trip is "hedonism". There are two basic ways I could see the trip going: to Europe (Amsterdam Red Light Districts, London Red Light Districts, pubs) or to Japan (soaplands, cat cafes, manga shops). As you can tell from the parentheticals I am a bit lonely and am not above paying for companionship. Any advice? On places with cute women where payment for their services is somewhat legal?
Also, I like to write poetry so if there is any /lit/ stuff I'd like to maybe do that too. Maybe Oxford?

Very rough route estimation
I'm thinking next February I'll do something like this on a moped, unless there are better transportation options. I'm thinking to give myself 6 weeks at a minimum, and $10,000 USD available but plan to spend much less, hopefully not half of it, but I like to ball out.
Anyone who's been around willing to share experiences? Or any resources?
Diving in Vietnam
Shooting shit in Cambodia
Getting modest amounts of azn poon (am white)
Also I might make it a point to visit more of Thailand, is Phuket worth it or a tourist trap?
Also will I be able to get by well with English and French? Worried mostly about the more remote areas.
Backpacking South East Asia.

Hey /trv/, planning on backpacking South East Asia later this year and need your opinion.
I'm planning on starting in Bali, flying to Singapore and then going to Malaysia, Thailand, Myanmar, Cambodia, Vietnam and Laos by bus.
I'm 18 and have a budget of $4-5K, would it be possible?
I don't really have any plans besides going to some night clubs and maybe Singapore zoo.

Boring thread incoming.
I am in the starting phases of trying to plan a long trip (7 months) to Europe. I am from Australia and therefore only have 3 months in the Schengen Area.
The longest trip I have been on before has been 5 weeks.
How often do people usually move around on trips of this length? 3, 4, 5, 7, 10 days?
Money is not really an issue, within reason - planning to stay in hostels, eat reasonably cheaply, not a huge fan of alcohol. I enjoy scenery, museums, history, am indifferent to nightlife and will probably try to go at least 1 day trip per city.
A bit more specifically, I wanted some insights onto the Schengen Area part of my trip. This will be prefaced by 2 months in UK + Ireland, and ending with 2 months in the Balkans and Turkey (probably just Istanbul). The Balkans will be Serbia, Bosnia, Montenegro, Kosovo (maybe), Albania, Macedonia. I think Croatia will be in the Schengen Area by the time I make it over, otherwise I will include it.
The orange parts in the picture are some ideas of where I want to go in each country.
Tentative Schengen Area schedule:
- 15 days in Germany (Cologne - 5, Hamburg - 4, Berlin - 6)
- 10 days in Poland (Krakow - 4?, Warsaw - 3?, somewhere else?)
- 10 days in Iceland (To do the Ring Road, not sure how realistic this is, is it enough time? Should this be dropped/lengthened?)
- 10 days in Sweden (Stockholm - 4?, where else?)
- 10 days in Finland (Helsinki - 4?, where else?)
- 7 days in Estonia (Tallinn - 3/4?, where else?)
- 7 days in Latvia (Riga - 3/4?, where else?)
- 7 days in Lithuania (Vilnius - 3/4?, where else?)
- 7 days in Czech Republic (Prague - 4?)
- 7 days in Hungary (Budapest - 4?)
- Could very well do a couple of days in Vienna/Bratislava
Where would you lengthen/shorten/completely drop? I would rather stay with these countries or drop some, unless you can convince me of another country's greatness.
