We are not the only ones to ask ourselves this. There is a website where you can find: Antipodes. “At least once in your life you wonder what’s under your feet. What’s on the other side of the world? », Can we read on the site.

For convenience, we use the Grote Markt in Zwolle as a digging site. Where do you end up when you dig a tunnel from the Grote Markt on the other side of the world?

If we zoom out, we see New Zealand in the northwest. A little closer you will find the Antipodes Islands, a group of inhospitable volcanic islands. But for that, you first have to swim a few hundred kilometers. The grass is clearly not greener on the other side of the world.
