The Expedition[edit]


Wow, just wow. That was a hot trip. I didn't measure the temperature, but in the shadow there might have been around 35°C. Because the geohash was in the inner city of Bern, I wanted to achieve another Walk geohash. As the bird flies the geohash was about 4km from home. I was a bit early and walked through the city to kill time.

I approached the geohash via Kornhausbrücke and walked down to the Altenberg district. The geohash itself was in a pavillion with chairs and a fountain, really really nice place. I made a tour around down to the river Aare and saw people swimming. It is quite common for the cities on the river (and probably also other rivers), but as I'm not a very good swimmer, this is not an option for me. You have to be aware that the velocity of flow is high and you have to know what you're doing. But in general a very good idea for today...right behind geohashing.

Due to the fact, that I was standing in the pavillion which was under the bridge itself, the precision of the position measurement was not very accurate. Even the connection was lost sometimes, and the distance jumped about 20m back and forth. Consequently, the photographed position was my best guess.

I took the usual photographs of me and the surrounding, where the bridge was a beautiful motive. Unfortunately, at 4pm no one else showed up and I walked back home. Very nice trip, I'm ready for more.
