First up this week, a relocation to the world's most liveable city...

In terms of liveability. Vienna comes out on top

Vienna has overthrown Melbourne as the number one city in the annual Global Liveability Index.

The Economist Intelligence Unit’s 2018 ranking examined five categories - stability; healthcare; culture and environment; education; and infrastructure - in 140 destinations.

It awarded the Austrian capital top marks in four, to give it an overall score of 99.1 out of 100. Melbourne, which was number one for seven consecutive years, had to settle for second place.

If you fancy more than a holiday and are looking to relocate, Vienna has a lot of potential.
