Today I was researching the Internet to get some inspiration to write. I wanted to talk about some ranking, a list of countries in which you’ll be able to see some useful information about traveling and sustainability. I didn’t have an specific topic defined in my head so I just started to type random words. Some articles appeared in the screen, most of them related to lists of countries with more corruption, the poorest ones, the most polluted, etc.

That’s why I decided to let you know which countries are the happiest ones. I guess a lot of people is also fed up with bad news and since we are still getting Valentine’s vibes, let’s keep talking about positive stuff and inspiring destinations for this 2017. These are some of the happiest countries in the world according to the ONU’s World Happiness report:

9. Australia

Nice tight-knit locals, a lot of sunshine, a large number of national parks and many nature related spots to visit such as the Daintree Rainforest, The Great Barrier Reef or Uluru.
