    I took the quiz for Germany, and learnt about the museum of things. The next time I'm in Berlin I will have to go there.

    I am surprised. Pakistan is not in the region. :(

    @souhaib I like China a lot. I think life is still very tough in some areas, especially in the countryside, but the cities are very well-developed and comfortable. I could live in China, except perhaps I would have to be careful about what I said. Political freedom isn't the country's strong point.

    I chose France and the quiz put me in Paris. I'm not sure if I agreed with their estimated 59 € weekly grocery bill though.

    Africa only included two countries: Egypt and South Africa. And most of the world seemed to be ignored.

    @meu What did you check in UK that you got this message? ;)
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 30,040 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @mheredge I think it should be reported on the website as well. Let me check if there is any feedback or comments corner or not. Hopefully, I will not be bankrupt after that! ;)

    @meu not a bad deal! Above my expectation! ;)

    @asmaawafy culture is the core part of a country. It gives you a complete picture of that country. So, don't miss it. :)

    @sapkas I like it! :) Let me try another country if not of my own. :)

    I chose France and I couldn't understand the results. ;)
  • sapkassapkas Posts: 67 ✭✭
    @bubbli what is surprising in the result for you:)?
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 30,040 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @sapkas It is a list of surprises about living, job, retirement, health, hotel etc. ;) Oh! I didn't save it. :open_mouth:

    I read that expats who were asked in a recent poll, which was the 'best' country to live in from a foreigner's perspective, came up with France as number one. This doesn't surprise me as the quality of life is very good here.

    @meu I'm from Egypt .
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 26,105 mod
    Where in Egypt are you from @asmaawafy? I have visited Egypt a couple of yimes but my sister lived there for several months working as a nanny in Cairo. She loved it there.

    @mheredge what were the other countries as a result of this poll and is this poll only conducted for European countries?
