Best Countries to Start Your RTW?
The countries that come to mind that fit your description are:
You've probably considered most or all of these anyway but that's what comes to mind when you say "least culture shock, easy to travel in, etc." When you add "not too expensive" in the mix I'd say maybe Czech Republic, Costa Rica or Portugal.
Good luck with your article.
"I travel not to escape but to find reality"
Also, with spanish as the central language for almost all of south and central america, the first leg of the trip could all be done learning / perfecting a single language as you venture into more exotic adventures in the rainforest or andes.
Add your own!
So then to narrow down your choice you need to consider other factors. What is the traveller interested in - outdoor pursuits or museum-hopping, learning a particular language or diving with dolphins......
So at the end of the day it comes back to the individual. No one prescription will fit everyone.
Others may disagree with me of course but I think of how shy I was when I first started traveling solo and I just don't think I could've done it without having been to an "easy" country first!
