(visited by Christoph Marquardt)

06-Oct-2005 -- We visited Knossos in the morning. On our way back to the hotel my wife asked me if I would like to see the CP on the island.

It is the only CP on the island and is also one of the most southerly CPs in Europe. There is no CP which is more southerly. The CPs around the Canary Islands are not on land I think.

We drove on some funny roads which were currently under constrution and finally arrived the area of the CP. It is in sight of a little village called VAGIONIA. The picture is taken about 200m away from the CP.

I had to walk for about a kilometer from the little road nearby. After crossing a ditch and meating some goats I reached the CP. I then took four photographs looking South, West, North and East.

Placing the camera on a stone I took a picture of myself at the CP. After that I returned to my family who were waiting for the explorer.
