Entering Turkey today was fairly complicated. First we had to buy a £10 visa and have the appropriate stamp stuck into our passports. Then the passports were inspected and stamped. Then the van’s registration document and green card were inspected and my passport stamped to show I have a temporary import licence for the vehicle. Then both our passports were inspected by customs. After which we were waved through at the final checkpoint.
On fairly rough roads we went to the town of Gelibolu. Whilst driving around looking for a museum we wanted to see (never found it) we parked in a shady place but were soon moved on by an armed soldier as we had chosen to stop outside a grand looking military installation!
We stayed the night on the Gallipoli peninsular and all had a delicious buffet supper.
