Forumlating an Idea, need help, Fez Morocco to Amsterdam

Jump to last reply

I am a person of modest means but when I get a little money I want to travel. I am seeking any random advice on the following: Perhaps this trip is a bit ambitious and it may overrun my budget which would be about 8 to 10k US max. Two persons, my wife and I. Time frame would be 3 to 5 weeks. 5 weeks is pushing it it, but I can dream can't I. Realistically, the scale of the trip may require 5 weeks, some scaling down may be required. Anyway, here are the key parameters: I'd like to start out in Fez, Morocco. Perhaps 3 days there. Need to get over to Spain and visit relative in Madrid. Off the top of my head, rent a car and go to the Brittany region of France. Move at relaxed pace. Hit Paris, maybe 3 days or so. Either continue with car or take train thru Belgium, possibly stopping, don't know. Wind up in Amsterdam, which is like my home base in Europe (been there many times). I know some folks may not like it but its just a good place for me to chill. Can walk anywhere, and I usually set my dates with favorite bands that often pass thru there. Say 10 days in Amsterdam. Going to try to stay in apartment I usually get (1000 EU for about 10 days). Outside of Amsterdam the rest is completely unknown to me. Any thoughts?........ That was my original post on another site. It looks like flights to Morocco from the US are way too expensive, so flying into Madrid may be the best option..then a flight to Fez.. and then perhaps land and sea travel back into Europe from Morocco. I've got a yea plus to slice and dice this thing. It may not work and be relaxing......so will adjust to be relaxing.. I'm open to other options within the general ideas I have suggested. The only absolutes are Madrid, Fez, and finally laying low in Amsterdam. Is Brittany even doable in this framework? Paris is not an absolute or should it be? This is the early phase of my quest. Ive not been to Spain or France or Morocco. A couple forums said skip Morocco period. Whats that about. Fez looks wild and mysterious to me, a wonder. I think I'd like to experience it. Would I? Also, does the 10K sound about right? Keep in mind we are not 20 something and while we don't need opulence, do like private and comfortable quarters.
