(visited by Jacek Pachocki and Mieczyslaw Pachocki)

04-May-2001 -- After submitting a N52E005 confluence in the Netherlands, I got a chance to hunt for another one on my vacation in Greece.

On 4th of May 2001 my father and I went from Gournes in the North of Crete in search for the only confluence on the island. On our way we had to cross several mountain chains and looking at some of the rocky walls I was afraid that the confluence could be somewhere where only birds dare to go. Fortunately as we approached the village of Vagionia the terrain gave us hope our mission could be accomplished.

We drove as far as it was possible and we left the car at about 600 meters from the aim of the journey. As we climbed up the hill through some olive grooves several big colorful lizards jumped away just from under our feet.

Almost at the top, there it was: the N35E25 confluence. I took several photos but as you can see it does not matter which direction you look, there are just olive trees everywhere. I marked the location with the biggest piece of rock I could find in the neighborhood.

It was a very nice day and we had a lot of fun going there and visiting the spot.
