How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

This is a virtual cache, which means that no cache was actually hidden.

To be permitted to log this cache as “found”, you must physically get to the published coordinates, find the answers to the questions written below and upload a picture with your log (instructions later).

After having found the answers, please send them to me by mail, mentioning your nickname (and -if it’s a while ago since you “found” the cache- the date you were at the coordinates). Then you may immediately log, but do not forget to upload the required picture. If there is something wrong with the answers or with the picture, I ‘ll get back to you.

I will be very strict, until we have a “podium” (FTF, STF and TTF). Anyone logging after the first three loggers may have one mistake in their answers or choose not to answer one of the questions. The picture stays a “must” in any case.

Good luck, here we go:

1. N32°03.248 E 034°45.132
What year is mentioned in the mosaic?

2. (W) N32°03.254 E 034°45.148 / (E) N32°03.255 E 034°45.163
Go to the west side of the bridge (W) and count the number of stairs.
Then go to the east side of the bridge (E) and count the stairs there as well (there is not always exactly the same distance between them). Now calculate E-W=? stairs.

3. At the east side of the bridge you can find a small mosaic in the floor. What we see here are:
a. the 12 signs of the zodiac
b. a candelabrum and an olive branch
c. a moon and a falling star

4. If a boat would pass under the bridge, what would the maximum hight of the mast be?
(Hint: Check the bridge from all sides).Optional question: what is hanging down the bridge (temporarely)?

5. Go back to the west side of the bridge. There is a sign explaining how to make a wish.
What color are the letters?

6. What’s under the bridge?
a. an archaeological excavation (Roman Period)
b. a one-way road
c. a river leading to the sea

Now you are ready to make a wish while putting your hand on your sign of the zodiac and looking into the direction of the sea.

Please take a picture of you, your hand or any personal item next to the sign of your zodiac, showing some of the surroundings, but make sure that the picture does not reveal any (part) of the answers to the questions above.
The only thing that is left now is to upload the picture with your log and to send me the answers by mail or as a message.

I hope you enjoyed being here and that your wishes will come true. Btw.: There is another -regular- cache nearby: "Three Wishes". You may want to find it if you are already here 😊.
