Tiny Luxembourg scores big on contentment.
The secret to its success lies in its gross domestic product per capita, which is quite high, landing the country second on that sub-list. Add in sterling marks for social networks and a lack of corruption, and you can see why locals have much to be happy about.
The report doesn’t note this, but we have to think the country’s healthy love of wine has something to do with its good spirits, too; as of a couple years ago, it boasted the most wine consumption per capita of any country in the world.
You can take advantage of its viticulture scene by visiting the Valley of Moselle, home to rolling vineyards and superb bottles of Riesling, Pinot gris, Gewurztraminer and more.
