Mind-Blowing Geography Facts You’ve Never Been Taught In School

Geography is fascinating and miraculous. In the past, geographical knowledge was hard to acquire. Voyagers spent months or even years on the sea looking for new lands. Yet, not all journeys resulted as they expected. Without things like satellites and GPS, it’s reasonable that most of those adventure courses ended fruitlessly. It took hundreds of years for us to discover the American continent and several hundred years more to discover Antarctica.

Not just that. At the time, maps were not something everyone could have. And the process of measuring and calculating to draw a map was so much of a challenging task. Well, now that’s safe to say that learning geography is not easy. In the past, people didn’t have access to knowledge. And now, when everything is available to everyone, we are just overwhelmed by the sheer amount of information.

This one can boggle the mind of many. How can this European country have a border with Brazil? And it’s even the longest one? Well, it’s because France has a colony located in the northeast of Brazil. And it has a 730km border with Brazil, the longest of all borders.

Asia is the land of mountains. The highest mountain range is the Himalayas, formed as a result when the Indian tectonic plate and the Eurasian Plate collided. It’s still growing with every passing year as this mountain range is rather young. Older mountain ranges will be eroded and eventually turn into hills and plains. Still, the Himalayas is just farrrr from that day.

You can either say that Australia is absurdly big or that Europe is just so small. Still, traveling such a distance across the sea is way more terrifying than when you do it land.
