Last year we fell in love with the English public footpaths, which we visited both in May and August, and only a few days after returning from our August trip, we started planning another geocaching tour to the UK to take place in August of 2010. The main goals of this third trip should be circular geocaching series around Reading, Eastbourne and Crawley. Neither of us are keen on the idea of driving in the "wrong" side of the road, so we had to plan our transport carefully. Luckily we managed to find a good combination of train and bus connections as well as a little bit of taxi driving. This enabled us to get close enough to many great footpaths (and geocaching series). This kind of geocaching does not provide any "drive-by's" and thus we walked more than 300 km during our 11 days trip, but that is exactly the way we like it!
Right after our arrival eleven days ago (while riding the Stansted Express) we noticed the series along the River Lee and decided that this would be nice to spend the last half day of our trip on this urban footpath. Today we headed for London, left our suitcase at the station and took the tube and light railway to the Limehouse Basin and the series. This cache was found at 12:40. This one happened to become a mini milestone for us: Our find no. 9700!
Thanks for the cache and greetings from Denmark!
