04-Sep-2011 -- On the third day of my Confluence journey along the 49th parallel I started in Humenné, close to 49°N 022°E. My way led me through the eastern part of Slovakia, passed the High Tatra Mountains and drove through the scenic Váh valley. I really enjoyed the landscape of this stretch.
I left the motorway in Nemšová and was guided by my car navigation system on highways until Diacka. I parked my car where the road makes a sharp bend from north to south-west and where a forest road intersects. After I had a snack and some refreshments I started walking along the forest road towards the point some 960 metres away.
The way passes some houses, crosses a little creek and soon I was perpendicular to the Confluence Point. Then I walked cross country through the woods, climbed a small inclination and reached the Confluence Point. The point itself is located in the woods, but only a few metres next to a meadow.
In contrary to the rule of thumb that the way back is normally easier I did not manage to find the same track I used for arrival. Instead I walked cross country through scrub and nettles, jumped over the creek until I hit the forest road. 50 minutes after my departure I was back at the car.
After this enjoyable Confluence Point visit I continued my journey, left Slovakia and drove towards 49°N 017°E in the Czech Republic.
