(visited by Volker Mornhinweg and Martin Zimmermann)

14-Sep-2004 -- Our trip home to Germany from the holiday in Sweden led via Denmark. The danish highway E47 runs near 55°N 12°E - in fact, as near as 500 m -, which gave us a welcome opportunity to have a break.

We left the highway at the Vordingborg junction and made a turn in the direction of Stensved. Directly after having crossed the highway we parked our car on a parking lot on the left and set out for our little promenade. We walked along Road No. 59, turned to the left into a country lane that led to a farm and arrived at approximately 14:34 CEST our destination.

A black dog in the driveway of the farm (see pictures #2 and #8) seemed to be at least as enthusiastic as we were about all this, for he never ceased barking his approval to us until we left.
