Hmmm....which part of southeast Asia? If you're departing from Singapore...I guess the route is:

Singapore - Malaysia - Thailand - China - Nepal - India - Iran - Syria - Turkey - Greece - rest of Europe

The route given above (with Laos and/or Vietnam between Thailand and China) is probably the best and most interesting route, and all very possible if given enough time.
The easier and quicker, and therefore more popular route, is to head north from Vietnam into China, north to Beijing, and then hop on the Trans Mongolian Railway to Moscow before dropping down into the rest of Europe.
Notice that one thing that has not been suggested is going from Thailand through Myanmar and to India. This is because land borders with Myanmar do no exist (or at least legal ones for foreigners), so the route is impossible.

Couldn't resist to add another route, which I would take if I had money, time and patience (regarding visa etc.). Singapore - Malaysia - Cambodia - Vietnam - China - Kazachstan - Kyrgyzstan - Uzbekistan - Turkmenistan (probably visit Tajikistan as well if I am in the region) - boat across Caspian Sea or travel trough Iran - Azerbaijan - Georgia (visit Armenia again) - Turkey - Europe.

Or from China first southwards to Nepal and India, than Pakistan and up again the Karakorum highway and then on to Central Asian countries.

That's a great looking route too Utrecht. When I get the time and money, this will definitely be on the top of my list.

I don't think there's any water left in the Caspian sea, is there?

I am looking at travelling home from Asia, if I manage to get enough money together I want to do Malaysia, Thailand, Laos, China, Mingolia, Russia, Eastern Europe, Turkey, Syria, Jordon, across North Africa, Spain, France, UK!!

I didn't think it was possible to cross from China to nepal though?

I think you can cross Tibet-Nepal via Kodari (tho not vice-versa) - obviously given the current political situation in Nepal makes this rather subject to change.

O yes there is, but the Aral Sea is down to 10% of what it used to be;)
