Have you ever wondered what’s across the ocean when you’re at the beach swimming? We could know more or less about what’s on the other side, but not with an exact precision. Like if you’re somewhere in Portugal and looking over the Atlantic, we would imagine being somewhere on the same line with Florida, but in fact we would be closer to New York and Washington DC.

With the help of these 7 maps made by the guys at The Washington Post, we are now able to see exactly what countries face others on different continents. So next time when you’re on the beach somewhere, you can amaze your girlfriend by telling her with manly precision what country she is facing when she’s staring into the horizon!
