Well guys its basically come to that time, the inevitable, yep the money is just about all gone. It will have been just over 6mths and I guess all good things have to come to an end. Ok Im trying to be philosophical about this!

Im in Meknes, Morocco and the plan is to make my way to oktoberfest in Munich in the next month where that will be the last roll of the dice for me. Ill be stretching the euros to get there but leaving enough money to help find a place to stay/search for a job somewhere in europe...

So whos got the contacts, whos got the ideas? Tpunkers put your feelers out for me! Im pretty open minded but selling my body isnt an option! Look forward to the ideas rolling in

all the best!

Meknes is a good place to be if you haven't much money.

No ideas though really...

Hey Evan! Hope you are doing well. I am not the best person for ideas about working. I'm sure if you ask around you can find something. Maybe you could work at a hostel for a bit, and then you'd probably have a place to stay for awhile too. Or can you bartend? I guess just think about what you'd like to do, or at least know what you can't standing doing and start talking to everyone. Good luck and keep us posted.

Id go the hostel route, they usually give you a place to stay along with monetary compensation. I know there was one in Marbella Spain that had a guy who was planning on moving on in a couple months or so back when I stayed there. Hostel Pilar was the name I believe. And hey you could always take up playing the accordion on the metro if that doesnt pan out.

Hell yeah try some panhandling. I have given bums money before. Just do something interesting and they will help you out. Make a sign that says "Just doing this to get to Octoberfest" then prance around in your underwear singing, thats what I would do.
