When our tour had finished up we transferred on the ferry over to a lovely town called Çanakkale. By taking that 15 minute ferry ride we crossed into Asia, although I will admit I did not feel any change whatsoever! We then settled into our hotel and followed that up with a lovely dinner at a café right on the water
I then ventured down the boardwalk at night to see the Trojan horse they actually used in the filming of Troy.
This post does not do Çanakkale nearly the justice it deserves. It is a truly gorgeous little town and I really loved it here and I wish we had stayed longer. The cobblestone streets and cafés with open air tables right by the water. The warm breeze coming in off the Dardanelles from the Aegean Sea. The laid-back atmosphere and boardwalk and lights from the town reflecting off the water into the distance. Wonderful place.
Tomorrow we leave though but not before a big breakfast. Then we are off to Selçuk via Troy.
