... Ataturks Memorial was. After that the tour was complete, we
headed on a car ferry to Canakkale. We were pleasantly surprised to find we had
a 5 star hotel for the night. We were stoked. We had an early night because it
was pretty expensive for 1 beer.
The next morning we headed off to Troy (Troia). This was
really cool to see. Seckin really knew a lot about this and was very good
describing the history of Troia. The Trojan horse was pretty impressive. ...

Although stunning we agreed we weren't exceptionally WOWed, ...
Arrived at 6pm to find out the apartment we had booked was suddenly, "not available tonight" which was a complete pain. Predictably I refused to stay one night in some other random house and move the next day. So we sat at the (very modern and nice) airport with a coffee wondering what our next move was. The day was saved by technology (our fantastic portable wifi TEP thingy) and the House Trip agency ...
