My Great Gallipoli Adventure

 

So began my great Gallipoli adventure, early on the morning of Friday, 15th April. After an emotional farewells from family and friends, my mother and I embarked upon our first flight – from Blenheim to Christchurch.

 From there, a smooth flight to Singapore lay ahead, where we made our much anticipated linking up with the New Zealand Defence Force Contingent for the final leg of our journey to Istanbul. From our very first meeting, we knew that these were a very special group of people and we were set to have an amazing time!

 Weaving our way through the Turkish countryside for five hours, we finally arrived in Canakkale, a beautiful city on the southern coast of the Dardanelles. Exhilarated, but exhausted, sleep came easily and I was soon dreaming of new exotic lands.

Looks like the possums found a new hiding spot. We’ve dispatched our animal control guys to get them.
