A term used mostly by Americans, by which usually Europe is meant. In most cases, the person who uses the term doesn't state which country he or she is from, so most people from "overseas" haven't got a clue as to what is meant.

O"ver*sea" (?), O"ver*seas" (?), adv.

Over the sea; abroad.

Milton. Tennyson.
