The time had come to get serious. If I was going to see Turkey I had to get a move on and my first stop after Istanbul was Cannakale - the town closest the Gallipoli Peninsula (ANZAC territory) and Ancient Troy (think Orlando Bloom and Brad Pitt in armor).

We had been to a shopping mall to load up on supply's so had plenty to carry. We waited in the grass area for a couple of hours until they called our bus number, 45 out of about 150! Once they called us it meant we could start walking the final couple of kms to Anzac Cove. As we got closer we found that they still weren't letting ...
