(visited by Wolfgang Vogel and Silke Heilig)

12-Sep-2003 -- This is our fourth confluence trip to the scandinavian countries, this time especially to Denmark. Our idea is to be the first people who have visited all confluences in this country. Besides Wolfgang and me a travelbug named Tweety joins us. We found him in a geocache right at the confluence 55N 15E. He really travels now!

This is our last day of the trip and this confluence is remaining to finish our intentions. Not the easiest one at least. We had to walk over fields, pass several willows one of them crowded with young cows, be aware of electric fences and "swim" through a ditch.

The confluence itself is less spectacular as you can see on the pictures but our way back to the car was even more "dangerous" as we had to pass another willow full of curious but anxious cows just been brought there by the farmer. After our arrival at the car again we had to clean our shoes wich had several inches of mud under the soles.
