Default Traveling Cruisemates Trivia

Since most of us Cruisemates have traveled extensively I would like to throw out this trivia question. I am sure many of you will know without Googling.

What is the SECOND LARGEST country in the world in AREA?

And the second question is: What is the SMALLEST in area?

Why, our northern friends in Canada have that moniker of the second largest, only behind Russia.

Prince Rainer has the smallest but if you, like I, include the Vatican, then the Pope has the smallest country, but most important to the Catholic religion.

I "object" as the Vatican is not a real "country", it is a state within a country.

Ray,

Other than Vatican City, how about Liechtenstein?

Thanks Ray for the enlightenment. I have to tell you I so enjoy your photographs! I also like what appears at the bottom of your post. I am married to mine as well.

Liam,

Vatican City is an actual country, and all the major nations have ambassadors to it!

When I posted San Remo a while back, I should have posted San Marino.
Actually it is third in size with the Vatican the smallest and Monaco second.
My bad.
