#1: Overview

(visited by Karl Bryk and Michael Bryk)

24-Sep-2015 -- This is visit number 13 in a sequence of 15 visits made while on a road trip with my son Michael.

The previous is 50N 5E.

It was already getting quite late when we arrived at Luxembourg's one and only CP. We followed the sat-nav and it brought us through a small town whose name escapes me, to a spot about 1 km from the CP.

It was already 18:40 and we knew there was not much daylight left. This was not our first visit here, the previous visit having taken place in 2005. Last time we came to the CP from above, this time we had to walk up towards the CP.

We walked past the horses to the CP and arrived a few minutes later. Photos were taken and we headed back to the car, arriving there at 19:10 so the whole visit took 30 minutes. This was to be our last visit today, but 4 CPs for the day was not a bad tally.

We headed off to find a hotel, hopefully better than the last one we had found a few days before. Which we did just over the border from Luxembourg, in Germany in a place called Dasburg.

The next is 50N 7E.
