(visited by Silke Heilig and Wolfgang Vogel)

09-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.

We came via ferry from Sweden this day and went to the confluence close to dawn. 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!

We went through an area of summer houses, and entered the forrest on a small path between two estates. We wondered if we are right but an officical sign allowed the pass. Because of the narrow trees the reception was not very good. We tried several times to take pictures of the exact confluence but the fading light made it more difficult every time. Last but not least it began to rain and we stopped our effort.
