This may be the coolest way you can travel from one country to another. Since 2013, you can go from Spain to Portugal in under a minute… ziplining!
The zipline is installed by the company Limite Zero and it connects Sanlucar de Guadiana, in Andalucia, Spain to Alcoutim, in Algarve, Portugal. It’s 2,362 foot (720m) long and it crosses the Guadiana River at around 50 feet (15m) above sea level.
Awesome bonus fact: Portugal is actually one hour behind hence you are basically travelling through time! (the article continues after the ad)
