All Neighbors South of Austria

All Neighbors South of Austria | Geography Education | Scoop.it
Seth Dixon's insight:

It sounds nonsensical to say that all the countries that border Austria are south of Austria.  However, considering the winding borders in such a mountainous country, there is always at least a small portion of each border where Austria is due south of its neighbor. Consider this your odd geographic trivia fact of the day.

Not true at: Sudan to Egypt and Libya, Chad to Libya, Niger to Libya and Algeria, Maritania to Algeria, Kuwait to iraq, saudi Arabia to Qatar and Iraq and probably some more...

I did not get it. Why is it so that all neighbors are south of Austria? I am from Slovakia and it is pretty clear that we are north of Austria. Please explain it bit deeper for us less clever :)
