Starting Point for Laminate Floor Installation

The floors prepped, the "floating floor" boards have been inside the required length of time, now,...where do I start? I have kind of a funny shaped kitchen. The instructions say to start along the longest wall, I don't really have one, the longest "stretch" along any one part is probably about 5'. What I think would work best is to start in the doorway that enters into the dining room and work back. The door way is about 30" wide and this comes in about 5 feet before the kitchen opens up (kinda like a short hallway). Now, what problems might I encounter this way? Or, am I ok with this starting point?

Think about what "issues" you are going to have as you move through the room. What areas do you need to cut around, make special adjustments for, etc. You need spacers to push/tap against as well, so that is a good reason for the "longest wall". Just think through each step of your install and make sure you can deal with everything...then..it shouldn't matter too much.
