|Happy people ... from Colombia and South Korea|
|Happy people ... from Australia and Slovakia|
So to tie this all up, I've been wondering which country I think is the happiest. I even thought through my experience with different nationalities while travelling and while teaching English (that's how I found these happy photos of my former students!). My South American students certainly always seemed to be the ones having the most fun with life, but the differences between "haves" and "have nots" were more extreme in their countries than in others. My students from countries like Japan and South Korea were uniformly comfortable in life financially, but often under pressure. So my final answer? I have no idea. Sorry. But I'm open to any opinions, just leave them in the comments!
