This article on Business Insider has a thought-provoking infographic on the cost of living in every part of the world. The results are quite surprising, for example, the highest cost of living goes to 1.Switzerland (not surprising), 2.Norway (not surprising either) and 3.Venezuela (what?? Really?) I was also surprised that the United States is in the middle of the scale, not in the higher end. From living around New Jersey, it seems that the cost of living is quite high, even compared to parts of Europe, considering the cost of health insurance, car insurance and even basic food items.
Well, all things considered, there are many ways to enjoy life, and many things we can learn from living in another country, so take the step and start the research on where you might end up!
