2I agree, you are probably looking at several days to get to Morocco by bus and ferry. Add up the meals, overnight beds and it's probably cheaper to fly.
I hope the van wasn't a guy named John who is notorious here on the TT as advertising for people to share costs but only interested in female companions.

4No, it was a different guy who planned the camper van trip, and he really does have health issues. I will watch out for this John guy though.
I did kind of want to see a bit of France, Spain, and Portugal before arriving in Morocco. That's subject to change though. Disappointed to learn that Megabus does not service those areas. I thought of going from Paris to Bordeaux.
I am using CouchSurfing for the most part, so accommodations should not be a big issue.
Thanks for replies.

5@bell (#4): If you plan to go overland and want to get accurate answers, you have to tell us what places you plan to visit. It's not the same if you want to go from Paris to Barcelona, continue to Madrid, continue to Lisbon and continue to Tangier than if you want to go from Paris to San Sebastián, continue to Porto, continue to Lisbon and continue to Tangier.
I thought of going from Paris to Bordeaux.
Take a look at Eurolines. You can also look for discounted train fares in the web of the SNCF. You could also look in webs specialized in sharing rides if you could find someone willing to share that ride on your travel dates...
Eurolines can be a good option for international buses from France to Spain or to Portugal.

6This is the cheapest train connection from Paris to Barcelona I was able to find:
1. Paris to Toulouse, tickets from 30 € tomorrow or on Friday. (http://www.voyages-sncf.com)
2. Toulouse to Barcelone accross the Pyrenees, round 36 € (http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Travel-g187175-c144262/Toulouse:France:Toulouse.To.Barcelona.The.Scenic.Route.html)
It's a long journey, but the views should be great.
