Cost of Living Comparison

cwm-oct16-hi-56Does a quick trip to the supermarket leave you in a state of shock and despair? The days of filling your cart are gone, with prices seeming to jump overnight. There could be some consolation in looking at how far your pennies, or cents, or Euros will stretch in popular locations. Maybe things aren’t so dire at home after all.

Sure, you say, but salaries abroad tend to be higher. It’s not just about the money, where else can you get almost any product, meal or service delivered to your doorstep for next to nothing, and enjoy year round swimming? Not to mention the sheer vibrancy of one of the liveliest countries on earth. Crunching the numbers, we go to numbeo.com to get the latest statistics.
