Asked in Argentina, Spain, Latitude and Longitude

Are you closer to the equator in northern Argentina or in southern Spain?

User Avatar
Assuming that YOU were in either of those locations: Northern Argentina is closer to the equator. The latitude of the equator is zero. Latitudes increase as you move farther from the equator, both north and south. The northernmost point in Argentina is near 21.8° south latitude while the southernmost point in Spain is about 36° N near Gibraltar. There are Spanish islands closer to the equator, the Canary Islands, at 27.6° N, but even so northern Argentina is closer to the equator by about 6° of latitude.

Asked in Spain, Australia

How is Spain different to Australia?

User Avatar
Spain is in Europe. Australia is in Oceania. In Spain, winter is December to March and summer June to August. In Australia it's the other way round. Is Spain, Spanish is officially spoken (alongside a few more regional co-official languages). In Australia, English is the official language. In Spain you pay with euros, in Australia with Australian dollars. Spain is smaller than Australia but more populated. Spain has a land border with France and Portugal, amongst others, whereas Australia does not. As of February 2011, no kangaroos have ever been found roaming freely across Spanish territory (although you can find some in zoos). In Spain you can find impressive Roman constructions like the theater of Mérida, which you cannot find in Australia. Spain has mountains, Australia does not. Australia is its own continent and Spain is not. good luck :) I hope I have helped you tell Spain from Australia next time!

It is not your residency which defines if you need a visa, it is your nationality (citizenship) US Citizens do not need a visa when they travel to Spain for business or for personal travel for up to 90 days. A US visitor will need to present a valid US passport (valid three months beyond intended stay), proof of sufficient funds and a return airline ticket. If you are not a US citizen, then you may need a visa, depending on your nationality.
