Exploring Turkey 1Gallipoli, Cannakale, Troy, Kusadasi
The bikes, beneath the Sphinx, named by the Anzacs as they landed in 1915.
Anzac Cove. Could be a beach anywhere in the world. A hundred years ago, it's hard to imagine the mayhem,
A Turkish statue, of a Mehmet carrying an injured Anzac back to his home trench to save his life, during a ceasefire. After returning to his own trench, he picked up his rifle and went back to war. A true story.
The bikes at Lone Pine.
The water front at Cannakale. The horse was used in the 2004 movie "Troy", and gifted to the city.
The ruins of Troy, that was actually a harbour city, the water covered the fields just beyond. In the distance is the Aegean Sea today.
Morning tea. What a view, looking out over the Aegean.
The Great Theatre of Ephesus.
The streets of Ephesus.
Could be a postcard, but actually the view from our Kusadasi hotel balcony.
