The campsite is part of the complex. It's clearly not their business focus. The facilities are "tired" and in fact some of the plumbing in gents' toilet is unacceptable. Reception staff did their job but were not very welcoming. Great swimming pool. Good beach. It was the most expensive camp we've had in 10 weeks, I cannot do more than say "a convenient place to stop".

The library of Celcus is particularly spectacular.
Cleopatra and Mark Anthony visited and celebrated their honeymoon here, Cleopatra's sister was married to the emperor of Epheses.

Then into the Gallipoli Historical National Park. There were pine trees everywhere. Silly how that surprised ...
... the circumstances (see previous two blog stories) I'm now in Gallipoli with a Turk by my side. It is compulsory for all Turkish boys to serve some time in the Turkish Army. The Dude actually served his time at Çanakkale but never visited Gallipoli! I guess it's that thing that happens where you don't visit things that are close to your home.....so it was good to share this experience with another and have them think about the past - Lest we ...
... a complimentary cruise to use until end of 2016, so can always try this trip again if I dare! Haha we also got our drinks package refunded & our day trips will eventually be refunded apparently. I paid cash for the day trips so unsure whether I'll get that before the end of my trip or if I'll get a cheque sent out or something? Once we got ashore in Gallipoli we walked along towards heaps of buses to wait for our luggage to ...
