(visited by Karl Bryk and Michael Bryk)

30-Aug-2013 -- This is visit 7 in a series of 7 CP visits while on a short road trip with my son Michael from 28 to 30 August 2013.

The previous visit was N47 E15

Again I had already been to this CP (twice in fact) but Michael needed it to complete Austria. And it was easy and on the way home. Following the navi along the convoluted route we arrived at the familiar site. The post man was visiting and I managed to talk to, presumably, the lady of the house. She had noticed us and it seems other visitors because she asked why people were constantly photographing her house. I asked her if she really did not know - "Nein" - and proceeded to explain about where the Längengrad and Breitengrad meet. She replied that she did not understand such stuff, declined to be photographed and disappeared into her house. Next time I will take a printout in German explaining CP hunting and give it to her.

After the usual photos we completed the journey to Vienna. 1650 km in total, long days, a lot of fun, 3 new countries visited for me (Slovakia, Slovenia, Italy), Hungary as well for Michael, and another complete country in Slovenia. The trip had been worthwhile and a pleasure. Lets do it again sometime :-)
