Central europe, rivers route W to E OR E to W ?

Im wantinmg to visit Lebanon and cycle there, before flying to Istanbul to continue across Bulgaria etc back towards UK, maybe on some of Sustran Velo 6 on rivers. Is this a crazy direction? Will I have constant head wind May to Sept ?

Should do it all the other direction?

Thanks

Central Europe , rivers route.

From lot of time spent  both cycling and kayaking along the Danube section of the EV6, and living near the river for a couple of years, my experience has been that the wind can come from any direction. Going upstream is just as good as going in the downsttream direction.
