#1: The Confluence from 20 m Distance

(visited by Rainer Mautz)

08-Aug-2020 -- This is the sixth out of 7 reports on a one-week bicycle trip (1100 km) from Riga to Warsaw. The story starts from 56°N 25°E and continues from 53°N 23°E.

I had spent the night camping out at a little field near the village Konopki-Jabłoń, 17 km east of this confluence point.

However, to reach the confluence point, I had to cross a huge forest. This is normally very pleasant for me, but in this case, the deep sand on the forest track slowed me down. I even had to push my bike, because cycling was not possible. After two hours of hard work I parked my bicycle at a distance of 30 m between to fields. To reach the confluence point, I simply had to walk these 30 m across a stubble field.

After visiting the confluence I continued southwards and visited the German concentration camp Treblinka along the way. I spent the night camping out at a little lake near the village Klodzie, about 100 km south of this confluence point.
