Bluewaav, sure you don't mean Castillian?

Supercat - hitching is almost always the cheapest way, and can be great fun if you have relatively open plans and time scale (it's ok in a hurry as well, but not as much fun if you don't get a ride). But you have to be easygoing and be open to going wherever you can get a ride to instead of neccessarily insisting on one specific place.

If you just want to get to Sth Spain as quickly as possible, consider a cheapy flight (maybe from Beauvais airport if you want to cross channel by foot?)

Obvious stuff, like going to cheapy supermarkets for food etc, sleeping rough/on stations etc will save you money
