24-Sep-2020 -- The story continues from 56°N 22°E.
We reached this confluence point on day #45 on our leg from Kuršėnai to Šiauliai of our hiking trip to St. Petersburg
The confluence is located 5 km east of the town Kuršėnai and just 500 m north of the motorway A11 on an agricultural field. The confluence can be easily accessed from a little road that runs about 400 m west of the point. At the time of the visit, the field had been ploughed already and was
without any vegetation.
The confluence was so conveniently located on our hiking route, that Elionora even decided to join the little excursion and get her first Lithuanian confluence point completed. After the visit, it took us all day to reach the city of Šiauliai, where we spent the night.
