The Happy Planet Index

So I came across this website the other day (I can’t remember how but I can only assume that someone shared it on Twitter) and was excited to discover that Vietnam ranks 5th happiest on the Happy Planet Index.

South Africa, where I currently live, ranks 128th, out of 140 and is in the most unhappy portion of the planet. Life expectancy is low while inequality is really high. And aside from the things they measure the Happy Planet Index on, the quality of driving is getting worse and worse on a daily basis.

Anyway, the point of this post is not to rant about South Africa but rather to celebrate that I’m soon going to be somewhere really happy!
