Is the plan to turn up sweating in lycra?
The whole "Let's do Gallipoli" thing seems to be more about doing something touristy and less about remebering what the Anzac spirit is all about in recent years. This smacks of backpackers smoking dope and playing rock music all night before the dawn service.
Sorry if that is offensive Mark but it sounds like a daft idea to me.
Could not agree with you more Patrick.
It is slowly becoming ' the thing to do'. I believe those that have a true meaning to visit to pay their respects or just 'remember' are those who visit when it is NOT ANZAC Day. And dont lets think of the bloody Politicians who turn up. Veterans pensions have risen by 30% in the past 10 years and Politicians pensions have risen by 90%. That is how much respect those parasites have for remembering Veterans.
Not for me mate my Grandfather fought in Gallipolli. The plan would be to get there the day before. I plan to leave a photo of my Grandfather there and say a quiet thanks!
No offence taken mate as some do go for the wrong reason.
None taken Mark. I hope you live your dream and have a great trip.
Have you seen how they drive in Istanbul?
It is out of my price range.
What are the roads and traffic like in Turkey?
