Nov 16, 2013 - Anzac Gallipoli Tours

Gallipoli Gallipoli Tous; The Gallipoli peninsula (/ɡəˈlɪpɵli/; Turkish: Gelibolu Yarımadası; Greek: Καλλίπολη) is located in Turkish Thrace (or East Thrace), the European part of Turkey, with the Aegean Sea to the west and the Dardanelles straits to the east. Gallipoli derives its name from the Greek "Καλλίπολις" (Kallipolis), meaning "Beautiful City". In antiquity, it was known as the Thracian Chersonese (Latin: Chersonesus Thracica, Greek: Θρακική Χερσόνησος). It is especially famous for the failed Allied offensive on Turkey in 1915 in...

Anzac Day Gallipoli

Jun 29, 2012 - Gallipoli and the ANZACS

My next tour started with a trip to Gallipoli. Visiting Gallipoli was a sombre experience for me. Although we learn about it in school and from our parents, I don’t think anyone can true begin to comprehend what these brave boys, because let’s face it, that’s what most of them were, faced when they landed on the beaches. It also illustrates how the combination of some poor and some downright stupid decisions and mistakes can lead to the unnecessary loss of so many lives. I can tell you now that standing on that beach and looking at what...

Jun 24, 2012 - Istanbul-ANZAC-Troy Area Day 3

21st May, 2012: Monday Weather beautiful, warm, sunny. Today we visit... Grand bazaar in Istanbul: spent money, bought some clothes and a pendent. This Bazaar had plenty of shops and peddlers selling their goods. Wayne tried the local coffee, strong, hot but drinkable. Looking forward to our next set of stops... Anzac Cove, and Lone Pine Memorials: Approaching the location the bus takes us along the European shore of the Sea of Marmara and heads westward to the Dardanelles. We stop to visit the WW1 battlefields on the Gallopoli (Gelibolu)...

Jun 13, 2011 - Anzac Cove

We had a whole day to discover Gallipoli (a few days ago now) - to discover the view and terrain of where the misguided young soldiers of world war one landed and tried to take refuge and defend or control their piece of turf. It was not only the young Australians and New Zealanders that lost their lives as it has been estimated that 36,000 of the Commonwealth died that year between the months of the April and December of 1915. We visited the most famous sites for the Australians in Anzac Cove where we went in the following order: 1. The...

Jun 7, 2011 - Turkey - Gallipoli

Yesterday we landed in Istanbul and took a day trip to Gallipoli. 5 hours each way meant that we only had about 4 hours to see the sights. It was a brilliant tour with a great guide. Some of the highlights included seeing where the ANZAC's landed (ANZAC Cove), where they were supposed to land, the actual trenches and also the many memorials to the soldiers. It was an amazing opportunity to be able to see the challenges that the ANZAC's faced and also to appreciate how close they were to their enemies.

Tess and Jono 2011

May 4, 2011 - Troy

Got a sleep in today – Hotel Kolin too far from Canakkale to head out, especially in the rain! Not due to be picked up until 1.15 pm so we had a long overdue rest. Took the time to update the journal and read a book. Got picked up and collected the rest of the group then headed to Troy. Replica of the Trojan Horse at the site which we had a play on, then wandered through the ruins of Troy. Homers Iliad regarding Troy and Paris/Helen is a purported myth. The ruins of 11 Trojan cities have been revealed although the actual site is neglected...

May 3, 2011 - Gallipoli

Early rise, collect at 6.20 am then had gthe funniest morning on the bus . Had to other people so we drove around the same collect streets about 8 times looking for then. Wrong hotel info given to the driver got so frustrated and became very animated -had us in ysterics - he was even on two mobile phones trying to find them. Finally all passengers retrieved and headed off to Cannakale & Gallipoli. First stop was on the freeway - a dog was crossing to the middle of the road to retrieve a dumped rubbish bag , probably with food in it....

We're off AGAIN 2011

Apr 24, 2011 - Happy Easter. Troy and Gallipoli

The Easter bunny must have got lost – no choc eggs for us this morning! We are up at 5.30am, bags out by 6 and down to breakfast. A bit of a shambles, the “hot” food is cold, and Tony is chasing them up for muesli, milk and Horrors! No coffee either! There is not a lot of choice, and the usual rabbit tucker is there. Still wary of eating salads as the tap water is undrinkable, but we figure we have been lucky so far and hope we are slowly adapting to the lack of drinkable water. We don’t think we will get used to salad for breakfast, and...

Nov 15, 2010 - Gallipoli

Hoi hoi, Een laatste bericht uit Turkije, morgen gaan we over de grens naar Griekenland, met een hoofd vol beelden en herinneringen.......aan de Jordaan, waar we in het water stonden op dezelfde plek als waar Jezus gedoopt is. Aan het uitzicht vanaf Mt. Nebo (Mozes) op Israel, aan onze wandeling door Damascus, door de Rechte Straat, waar God Saulus heen stuurde nadat Hij hem verschenen was op de weg naar Damascus. Aan het huis (nu een nog in gebruik zijnde kerk) van Annanias, die naar Paulus gezonden werd en hem de handen oplegde zodat hij...
