The good life is in Spain

EXPATS have every right to feel smug after Spain came second in a European quality of life index.

The uSwitch survey – which took into account living costs, spending on health and education, work/life balance and days of sunshine – left the UK firmly at the bottom of the list.

The index concluded that the Spanish can expect to live a year longer than those in the UK, have more days off (the highest number in Europe) and enjoy cheaper booze.

However it was not all bad news for Blighty, which enjoys a higher average wage and greater investment in education than Spain.

France topped the index, with the Netherlands third.

  1. Yes, things like earning a decent wage and investment in education are much less important things to consider. And cheap booze is such an important factor in determining ones quality of life lol. These reports are funny.
