This had better be worth it we thought as the boat from Canakkale to Gökçeada bounced and threw us all over the place. Luckily it was!

The true moral of the story should be, never assume that the hotel right on the waterfront and closest to you will be too expensive. Don't schlep off up a mountain for an hour trying to find a cheap room in the blazing sun when actually, I could have walked approximately ten metres and got what turned out to be the cheapest option! (Tania was sipping a cold Sprite in a quayside bar at the time.)

Room sorted, we spent a few relaxing days and nights enjoying the sunshine and tranquility of this truly unspoilt island. Watching the kite surfers sometimes literally fly past us as we sat around eating calamari and taking in the glorious sunset, this was a tough assignment.....

We're pleased to say the boat trip back to the mainland was a far calmer affair.
