Being a Mountain bike , It should be a place to start.. likely don't need the sispension fork.
a suspension corrected rigid fork will simplify things.
If you are not already in Europe, consider how the packing in a box will be done, efficiently..
My first disc brake bike has a centerlock hub so the disc can be removed easily,
to pack separately when front wheel is off, so not be bent in transit.
regular stuff , racks , tire choice, grips for comfort, [I like Trekking Bars for MTB to Tour conversions].
Definately, overhauling the drivetrain, so as to not fail on you in the remote places.
Do you have a Bike Shop to call on, there? seek their help , In person works so much better than text, here.
