There's not a lot to Gokceada, but it's a lovely little place to hang out for a week or so. The island -- formerly known as Imbros -- has been inhabited long enough to have been mentioned by Homer in the Iliad, but today, the main activities are hanging out at the beach, wandering around after a meal at one of the small restaurants, and checking out the local wildlife (mainly sheep). There may be other things to do on other parts of the island (like visit Turkey's westernmost point), but the bus only goes to four spots on the eastern side, so we weren't able to do a lot of exploring. (Plus, admittedly, it was really, really hot when we were there. We spent a lot of time in the shade.)
Toward the end of our week, we had dinner up above Kalekoy, at Yakamoz. I'd highly recommend it -- great food, great sunset views. Up to that point, we'd spent all of our evenings in Gokceada town, which is where the house was and which was always totally dead at night. Turns out, Kalekoy is hopping at night -- there was a small crafty market, live music and a TON of people walking around.
That's all for now...baaa-bye! :)
