Cam's European Vacation travel blog


Had a bit of a sleep in today for the first time in a few days. Then we went up to the roof of our hostel and watched a documentry on Gollipoli.

After thje documentry we went and had a walk down the main street. I found the shirts that they where selling here two weeks ago(one of which I bought), now they are half price but I always knew they would be.

12.30pm out tour of the battlefields started. It was with TJ himself and we soon found out that he knows an awful lot about the battle. He took us to the museum which we where unable to visit when we where here last. Then next we went to Anzac cove where we got to go down on the beach and touch the water. Then to the dawn service site which was completly different when there was only 20 or 30 people there. Then from there we went to Lone Pine (but this time by bus) where because TJ is so respected in Australia and New Zealand (he gets free trips there every year to give talks and do research he had a key to the memorial at Lone Pine and we could sign the visitor book.

From there we went through some trenches then onto the neck and Chunuk Bair (the New Zealand Memorial) again by bus (my legs where thankfull thinking back to when we walked on Anzac Day) then back to the hostel for dinner and a few beers.
