liveability survey


We currently live in the world where there seems there’s an app for everything, and there is probably one somewhere that can comfortably tell you the best city in the world in which to live. Here at Bobinoz, we still like surveys. Today is a triple treat as I bring you surveys surveys surveys! It’s interesting [...]


Well this, I have to say, was a big shock for me. Sydney second from last out of the 11 cities in the survey? Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a massive fan of Sydney, if anything I have a sort of love/hate feel for the city. The first couple of times I visited Sydney [...]
