Geneva Second Best

As I reported yesterday about the EIU poll, Geneva is the second best place in the world to live, while Vancouver took the gold. Here are a few other interesting points that I didn't mention.

They noted Geneva's main pitfall was its weather. But I don't see it all too much different than Vancouver, since I've lived in both cities. However, Switzerland came in second as entire country for "quality of life". I'm sure they really weren't thinking about how many big macs you can get for your franc!

Cities in Switzerland, Canada, Australia and Austria are the most ideal destinations thanks to a widespread availability of goods and services, low personal risk and an effective infrastructure.

**Be sure to read the post on low personal risk as I was taken back a bit by the thoughts but it is so true and certainly does pertain to feeling secure on where you live.

Other cities to note in the city were of Switzerland's neighbours, Vienna was Austria's highest city, Frankfurt was Germany's (joint 11th), Paris was France's (joint 16th) and Milan was Italy's (joint 58th). Vaduz, the capital of Liechtenstein, didn't get a mention.
