this just in

"Vancouver, B.C. is the world's most desirable place to live", says CNN International, reporting on the results of a liveability ranking survey put out by
the Economist Intelligence Unit.

The top ranking doesn't surprise me, even if I am extremely biased. Of course these kind of "who's the best" surveys need to be taken with a grain of salt and I know for a fact that there are many, many wonderful places to live in the world. But if you've never been to Vancouver, do go there some time and I think you'll see what they're talking about.

And now for the 67th time this year, I will proceed to bang my head on the desk and yell "What the hell was I thinking??!!" in a very loud voice. Don't worry, I'll be OK again in a minute.

Well Switzerland is second as usual. I love Europe so don't feel bad about being there. That was my last place of residence before I moved to Canada. But it looks like I'm here to stay in Vancouver.

My headbanging must be providing a counterpoint to your own, Christina. Flight tomorrow evening!

Hannah - I can see how you'd be torn. I know what it's like to miss family. Hope you have a safe flight back!

For some odd reason, I don't miss North America as much as you do.

J - I can imagine that your personal North America was and is probably vastly different than mine. :-)

And as I've said before, it's not just the scenery and the individuality and the multiculturalism I miss. I've also got a lot of family ties there that are extremely important to me.

Hi Expat Traveler - thanks for stopping by. Switzerland does seem to be pretty popular with a lot of people(just don't tell ms. mac!:-)) I guess everyone has a place he or she feels drawn to and where I live now just doesn't do it for me. Oh well.
