18 Magnificent Lighthouses that Light the Sailors’ Way Around the World

The sole means of communication in times

A lot of sea travel to reach far destinations
Imagine being at the cold, open sea at night, sailing against the wind, when there was no GPS navigation or radio communication. If you wanted to reach land, you would have waited anxiously for the light to show up. The light in the night was the sole means of communication in times before when there were no planes, and when there was a lot of sea travel to reach far destinations. Nowadays, with all the modern satellites, it all seems much easier. We might think that we don’t need lighthouses anymore. Although they might not have the same importance as the did centuries ago, a bright light at night is still a sign of joy for sailors and a romantic inspiration for photographers.
