Hashpoint was about 50m into an olive tree field in Voutes, a village of the prefecture of Heraklion.



Bus from Heraklion to the Stavrakia hospital, and walk the rest of the way.


My friend LizWiz had encouraged me during the christmas holiday to try and get into geohashing. Especially since I had recently moved to the beautiful island of Crete, which is a little bit of an uncharted territory. I had been checking for nearby heashpoints, so when the hashpoint turned out to be just 7km from my home, I decided to seize the opportunity. I took a bus which conveniently took me to the neigborhood of Stavrakia and then I walked from there following a local road.

I used GoogleMaps to figure out that the hashpoint was a few meters in front of a building which I recognized when I got there.



I proudly display my three first ribbons:
