Day 301 – Canakkale, Turkey
Our original plan was to take a bus to Istanbul this morning but due to an Islamic festival taking place this weekend, all of the buses were completely full. We checked with five different bus companies and none had any open seats. Since we were unable to leave town today, we basically gained an additional day in Canakkale. Making the most of the situation, we visited the Naval Museum inside the Cimenlik Fortress (which was closed yesterday) and we walked around town some more. The Museum was very interesting and spending an additional day in a friendly Turkish city with many delicious restaurants was a treat.
