Well, after Seljuk, it was on to Cannakale. Here, we took a ferry across to Gallipoli where we were on one of World War I's battlefield. There were monuments and cemeteries all over the area. I don't think many people can say they have been to a World War I battlefield. It was really important to Sait to see this. It took 5 hours to see everything. It was an area of 100 km.

After this, we went to TROY. That's right!! I got to walk through the streets of Troy and I got to see the Trojan horse. Even though it's not the real horse, the ruins are real and that was something special to see. The horse that was built for the movie Troy with Brad Pitt is also n Cannakale but we didn't have time to see this second horse. We kind of had to rush through this though in order to catch the last bus.

The only thing that I didn't like about Cannakale is that when we talked to people to get directions or anything, we got different answers from everyone. So we wasted a lot of time following the wrong directions. All I can say is, always visit the Tourist Information buildings because they are very helpful and informative.
