What determines that a country is happy?
“Money does not give happiness”, and is that, contrary to popular beliefs, happiness is not determined in its entirety by the economic capacity of a state. The countries and cities that are in the highest positions of the Annual Report of the Happiness of the UN are located there due to the ability of their inhabitants to recover from complicated situations: natural catastrophes, attacks, economic problems …
Among the countries that are falling the most in this ranking are great powers in which there are addictions to technology or gambling. These data reveal that what is really important are social connections and not material aspects. Other variables that are taken into account are life expectancy, social assistance, freedom, trust, generosity or the absence of corruption. In Aerobús we want to offer you a different list of destinations, with which you can expand borders in the most enriching way.
One of the most highly rated destinations since the creation of this list in 2005 is Finland. The key points are their education, their health system and life expectancy, although the incredible landscapes that can be seen should not be forgotten. We recommend that you visit the fortress of Suomenlinna, the village of Santa Claus, the capital Helsinki or that you pack your camera and immortalize the incredible northern lights of Lapland.
