Just after 8:30am we headed off to the other side of the Gallipoli Peninsula to see Anzac Cove, Lone Pine Tree and Chunuk Bair. We found it very moving as we reflected on the incredible bravery of the men who fought here – it made it all the more real for us both. We have found through our time in this country that the Turkish people still have great respect for New Zealanders and Australians because of their bravery shown here. A very memorable place to visit.
And so it is goodbye not only to Turkey, but also to Asia, what an incredible journey it has been so far through these countries!! – such an understatement!! We have learnt and experienced so much over these past 15 weeks – South Korea seems so long ago. Of course it is not over but now we are entering a new phase on our ride to London, still enjoying the experience but not necessarily going out of our way – there is so much to see in Europe, we will barely scratch the surface.
