Hey guys, Im going back to Europe, on limited funds this year for a month or so. I was considering either Morocco and a bit of Spain/ Portugal, or Greece and a bit of Turkey and heading up towards the Balkans a little.. just to give you an idea of the areas I am interested in.
Maybe if I can fly cheap I could get to both, since Morocco and Greece are my top travel choices...

Anyway.... any thoughts on these places? Which are the cheapest countries to travel to? I really like to experience different cultures, overwhelm my senses, and get out of my comfort zone, but I also really love the beach and beautiful scenery... Done the Western Europe thing, now I'd like to go a bit more off the beaten path I guess

Hope I havent been too vague... any thoughts/suggestions would be great, thanks!

Tiff

Well, flight prices depend on a bunch of different factors and I don't know where you're coming from. That said, have you checked out easyjet and ryanair? That would prob. be your best bet for flying between Spain and Greece....it might not be too bad...

I haven't been to Turkey or Greece but have been to Spain, Portugal, and Morocco (in fact, those were the only countries I hit up on my two month trip last year) and I will say I really believe you get it all: beautiful beaches, scenery, food, diversity, a bit out of your comfort zone in Morocco (or in Spain and Portugal, depending on who you are), cheapness (Morocco is extremely cheap and even Portugal is quite a bit cheaper than Spain)...

Anyway, if you have more specific questions please feel free to ask.

Thanks. I figured out that I could go through Greece and make my way up to Milan, and from there catch a flight to Morocco for a week or so... This is currently the plan Im interested in....
Do you think I would miss out by not seeing Spain(especially) and Portugal after Morocco since there is a lot of cultural and art related influence? It seems like these 3 countries just "go together"...but I dont know, maybe thats cause the travel industry always group them together...hmm...

Once u get to Greece, or the greek islands, it can be cheap. I was in mykonos and stayed at the camp site. (not sure what month ur going, check if it is year round) and u could get a bed for like 6 or 7 euro and a tent for 3 euro a day. About a 2 min walk to the most beautiful and adventerous beach in the world, Paradise beace. The cruise from Athens to Mykonos was bout 30 euro too.
