The first thing we did when we got to Troy was go inside the Trojan Horse, which was really fun. I was really excited to go inside it.
After that, we went into Troy. The group of presenters explained to us how Troy has nine different layers, and you can see the layers throughout the site. We got to see the burnt city, explore the caves, and see the incredible view. It was also really interesting to learn how close the sea used to be, and to see how far away it is now.
Then we went to Assos, which is by far my favorite place that we have been to so far. Getting up there was quite the adventure. We had to take the bus up these crazy mountain roads, and once we got to a certain point on the mountain, the bus couldn't go up anymore, so we had to walk the rest of the way up. When I say walk, I really mean hike. It was pretty intense, but it was definitely worth it. The view was absolutely amazing, and it is probably the most beautiful place that I have ever seen. We got to see the Temple to Athena, and then just explore on our own, which I loved.
Then we drove to Ayvalik where we were staying the night. I wish the weather hadn't been nasty because the water would've been so blue.
