Bein Gallipoli for Anzac centenary

Bein Gallipoli for Anzac centenary

Be in Gallipoli in 2015 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Anzac landing with two special tours now available from Tempo Holidays.

Tempo has the centenary well-covered for pilgrims who are successful in obtaining tickets for the official ceremonies at Gallipoli, as well as those who are unable to obtain tickets but wish to be nearby.

The 8-day Legends of Gallipoli Pilgrimage departs 19 April 2015 and the 9-day Anzac Spirit Pilgrimage departs 22 April 2015, both from NZ$4400* per person twin share.

Those with tickets to the ceremonies will attend official Anzac Day services, while those without tickets will observe from a ferry anchored offshore. A broadcast of the service is planned to be shown on large screens on-board.

The tours depart Istanbul and feature excursions accompanied by expert military historians who will explain the events that took place a century ago. The itineraries include a full-day city tour taking in the Blue Mosque and Grand Bazaar, a visit to the ancient ruins of Troy and plenty of time in Gallipoli to explore significant sites such as Anzac Cove, the French Memorial and V-Beach Cemetery.

Both tours also include 3-star hotel accommodation, daily breakfast, some meals, arrival and departure group airport transfers, tour escorts and sightseeing and entrance fees.

Tempo Holidays has been organising Anzac Day pilgrimages for more than 20 years and will ensure you get the most out of this once-in-a-lifetime experience. Centenary services are expected to draw the largest crowds ever seen at Gallipoli and the pilgrimage tours aim to provide a deeper understanding of the Gallipoli campaign.

Werewolf: Katniss Joins The News Team

From the outset, the Hunger Games series has dwelt obsessively on the ways that media images infiltrate our public and personal lives... From that grim starting point, Mockingjay Part One takes the process a few stages further. There is very little of the film that does not involve the characters (a) being on screens (b) making propaganda footage to be screened and (c) reacting to what other characters have been doing on screens.
