I am a Hong Kong user. I use traceroute from my computer to connect to a Taiwan website. However, I find that the route path is very strange. The packets pass through German and then go to United States and then go to Taiwan. Why do the packets pass through the far hops and then go to the destination? Why don't the packet go to the Taiwan hops directly?

I am not sure that the problem is caused by earthquake. I try to access some taiwan websites(e.g. www.gov.tw, www.yahoo.com.tw) The packets pass through Taiwan website directly. However, I try to trace some of the websites. The packets pass through U.K. and then Egypt and finally go back to Taiwan. Some of them pass through Germany and then U.S. and then finally Taiwan. The packets travel around the world before reach the destination. I don't think the paths are logical. How can I solve this problem?
