Military History Tours          On Tour - Swim the Dardanelles and Sponsored Surf Clubs Tour of Turkey 27 August 2010

  

Swimmers Tour Istanbul - Surfers Prepare

Today our Swim the Dardanelles tour group toured Istanbul. The day began with a visit to the ancient Roman Hippodrome followed by the Blue Mosque.  The architecture is beautiful and construction amazing.  All were impressed with the courtesy of the Turkish people allowing us into the sanctum of their worship.  There followed a visit to Hagia Sofia, the church turned mosque, turned museum still standing strong after 1,500 years in an earthquake prone area.  A true monument to the architects and their army of labourers.

Then there was the Topaki Palace with its beautiful architecture and stories of intrigue.  Luncheon was taken at the Topaki Palace Restaurant.

The afternoon was spent at the Grand Bazzar, dinner at our fish restaurant on the Bosphorus capping of the truly memorable day.

Tomorrow our swimmers head south for a tour of the Gallipoli battlefields.

Our Surf Club tour group spent the day at Kum Beach preparing and rehearsing for the surf carnival, Sunday.
