I will be traveling around Europe this summer and wanted to get some suggestions in terms of logistics. I have already booked some travel arrangements, so I will describe them here.

I will be flying into Paris and have two weeks to explore until I have to be in Marseilles to catch a flight to Croatia. From Croatia, I had some countries I wanted to see (maybe some advice as to whether it is too many countries, if it is even possible, or alternate countries I would enjoy that I seemed to have missed, the ones in parentheses I am unsure of, I enjoy the outdoors, some partying, must see places, off the beaten path but amazing places, but also want to have enough time 2-7 days each place to enjoy/relax): Greece, Italy, Czech Republic, Germany, Netherlands, (not sure where these would fit in: UK/Sweden/NorwayDenmark), Spain (fly out?)
I want to be flexible in regards to travel, but in an economical way. I have been considering getting a rail pass (still on the fence if it will be worth it economically, but looking at 10/15 day global flex pass, I am under 25, so I qualify for the youth discount) in conjunction with booking point to point tickets via budget airlines/buses/trains. I have also considered not purchasing the rail pass and just buying point to point. My total time of travel will be 2-3 months. Do you have any suggestions as to a rough logical travel itinerary covering the countries? Rail pass/travel suggestions?
