Çanakkale Turu

Jun 23, 2013 - Gallipoli & Canakkale

We travelled by minibus to the Gallipoli peninsula, stopping at Gabatepe, these days a pleasant beach with a camp ground. It was where the British and the Anzacs were supposed to land, but miscalculated and ended up the coast a few kilometres at what's now known as Anzac cove. Then on to Anzac cove itself where the beach has eroded away to very little over the years. Looking up at the high sandy cliffs and the distinctive formation the diggers called The Sphinx, above the beach, it's easy to see why theirs was an impossible mission. We...

Jul 30, 2012 - Turkey with family

The Giles-Hansen-Wispinski  contingent was joined by Liz, a school friend of Chelsea's who is working in Saudi Arabia, so we became the Giles-Hansen- Wispinski-Hunter's for a few days.  We took a 5 hour bus ride from Istanbul to Eceabat, a small waterfront town with easy access to the main Gallipoli battlefields.  We passed field after field of sunflowers, their cheerful faces turned towards the sun.  The long distance buses in Turkey have screens on the seat front, as in aeroplanes and cake/cookies/coffee/juice/soft drinks/water are...

Apr 25, 2012 - Izmir to Canakkale

April 24 started very early as we headed off for another 350 km drive. After passing more farmland, a gypsy village and other sites we ended up at Pergamon, another ancient site. The Acropolis was visible from a distance as we walked through a park to Asclepion, an ancient centre of healing. This was a bit different location and really showed the knowledge that was available back in 2nd century AD. The Roman medical centre has a bazaar stree, Temple, library and theatre. Sections of the pools, underground tunnels and rotundas still exist....

Oct 14, 2011 - Ayvalik to Canakkale

Late start today...we didn't leave until 10.00 after we enjoyed another Turkish breakfast...not many more to go. The plan was to eat on the upper terrace however there was a little bit of drizzle so our hosts set up inside. We walked down to the spot where the bus was meeting us. Ilkir zoomed up on time and we climbed aboard and headed out to town. The olive tees in this area look to be quite old...they have quite thick trunks however it looks as though the tops are cut back hard, I expect for ease of harvesting. The new growth is quite...

Jun 10, 2011 - We have arrıved ın Canakkale

Today we have drıven from Istanbul to Canakkale. But what have we been doıng the last few days? Our second day ın Istanbul was a beautıful boat cruıse up the Bosphorus - the water that lınks the Black sea and the Sea of Marmara. We cruısed up on the European sıde of Istanbul lookıng at the sıtes and then crossed over to the other sıde and came back to where we commenced goıng next to the Asıan sıde of the Bosphorus. The archıtecture was dıfferent, and the people travel between the two every day, mostly by ferry, so the waterway was very...

May 7, 2011 - Canakkale to Istanbul

Sadly the last day of this tour. We took the ferry from Canakkale to the Dardanelles and wound our way to Anzac Cove which was the first of a number of stops on this peninsular where the Anzacs fought and died. We were fortunate with our guide to get some stories and insights into the Turkish side of the war. Having a better appreciation of the terrain and the surrounding geography certainly helps to understand why it was so difficult to capture the high ground and why this battle ended in the loss of so many lives on both sides. We were...

May 6, 2011 - Ephesus to Canakkale

Today was basically a travel day to get us up to Canakkale for the final leg via Gallipoli and back to Istanbul. So it was 5 hours in the bus and a couple of stops along the way. The first stop was the Acropolis site at Bergama. This site like so many others was on the top of a hill. But the difference here is that there was a cable car to the top. Just as well as the weather had turned cold with a strong wind and we were all hoping that we could do a quick tour of the ruins and get back into the warmth of the bus. The site featured the...

Apr 3, 2010 - Day 3 Istanbul to Canakkale

Day 3 - Istanbul to Canakkale We had a great sleep, and woke up at 5:30 am feeling so much better. After showering and packing up our gear, we put our bags out and went down to breakfast. It was a buffet breakfast, with a wide variety of items, both cold and hot. There were many varieties of cheese, all quite salty, as well as olives and cold meats. They also had a selection of breads, pastries, and hot items like eggs. We recognized a few people from the orientation the previous evening, and some others who must’ve come in later on....
