1000 Turkish Lira is approximately 486 Euros. If you don't propose to stay in hotels, I would imagine that that sum will be more than enough to live on for a month.

Here's the Wikipedia page for Adana

Also, there are good transportation links to other cities from Izmir so that shouldn't be a problem.

I'm afraid I can't help you out with fares, but I'm sure others will respond to your post.;)

I don't think that there are direct flights from Izmir to Adana. You would have to fly via Ankara or Istanbul. It would be quite expensive too. Around 200 liras.

If you are considering of taking a bus from Izmir, that should take you around 16 hours. It should be around 40-50 liras.

Since there is American military base in Adana, I am just wondering if your girlfriend is American or Turkish. Depending on your girlfriend's nationality, your spending might differ.

I hope the decision you are making is a safe one. Have fun!
