We visited Gaba Tepe where the ANZAC's where suppose to land - it was a lovely flat bay with a big beach and gentle slope, ANZAC Cove which has a very small beach and enormous cliffs, Lone Pine - the Australian memorial, the Canakkale Martyrs Memorial and Chunuk Bair - the NZ memorial.
It was amazing to see the places that the we see and hear about on ANZAC day in person.
As it was a Sunday there were lots of Turkish tourist and a lovely Turkish man and his family shared there cherries with us up on the hill overlooking ANZAC Cove and The Sphinx.
We spent the night in Canakkale and had a yummy dinner followed by a walk along the water front to see the horse used in the movie Troy and watch the sun set over the ocean.
An incredibly moving day.
