Certainly brought back memories to see the pollution in HK, looked even worse. Very impressed by the size of the wine glass and how much was in it, sets a new benchmark! You will be about to wake up for a new day, hopefully you are nearly recovered and your luggage has arrived. have a great day.

Hi Vicki and Liz
What a great idea-this blog! There is a lot of TV coverage here of the events in Turkey leading up to Anzac day. I keep on looking for you, even though logic tells me you wont be there yet :-) Rog and I send you all best wishes and hugs and hope you are having a ball. xxx
Thanks Katy and Roger. Clothes on board and having great time.

Hi Glam and Lizzie
I loved seeing your pictures. My favourites were the picture of the colorful shoes and bowls ! The food looks yummy too! I would like to go to Turkey one day too. Miss you lots. Love Ruby :-) :-) xxxx
Hi Ruby
Thank you for your message, I am having a wonderful time and the food is yummy. The commemoration service at Gallipoli was beautiful and moving. I have pictures to show you when I come home. We visited a very old and ancient palace todayand tomorrow we are going on a boat up the Bosphorus sea. You will have to look at that on your map. Miss you and Seb, love and hugs, Glamxxxx

Cathay pacific! Mmmmm....
Maybe Carpet Pacific. Can just imagine two girls flying home on their new Persian carpet hanging onto their bags! At least it could be direct. Good luck for the weekend at Gallipoli.
Think about Istanbul on your trip.

Now looking out for you in Chunik Bair, what an amazing bit of history you are witnessing. How proud would your father feel .
love Brigidxx
Great that it was televised
From susie - Sunday, 26th April 2015, 01:18 (GMT)
That was some journey to get there. Still the drama completes the journey. kind of reflective in a small way of the hard journey that gallipoli must have been 100 years ago.

Must admit to a bit of envy. Sounds like it is one of those special asventures that don't come along too often
We thought the same we were concerned it was going to take just as long to get there.
From Katy - Monday, 27th April 2015, 10:40 (GMT)
Great to hear of your adventures . I watched everything I could of the ceremonies hoping to see you, but alas, I must have picked up a cuppa at the wrong time !! Hope your adventures continue and that there are no more hitches or scody hotels. you HAVE to stay in at least one to know what good is like
!! xxx
Hi girlfriend, This hotel is an improvement on Canakkale. Gorgeous little area we are staying in off to explore tomorrow. xx
