18 Beautiful And Surprising International Borders Around The World
When we think of international borders, many of us may picture huge road stops lined with officials waiting to dutifully check the passports of each and every person who dares venture into their homeland. When you really think about it, however, not every square inch of the division between two countries can be lined with border crossings or people in uniform watching over them. Here you'll get a unique look at what borders look like around the world via this series of photographs showing everything from natural land borders to mere roads that divide some countries from their neighbors.
As it turns out, just about anything can mark a border between two countries, whether it be a river that happens to run between the two or a painted line. So come on in and get a load of international borders around the world in a way you've never seen them before.
Whether you're looking for a single travel spot that allows you to stand at the intersection of three different countries at once, or you're just looking to broaden your horizons a bit, you won't be disappointed!
