A month ago, I wrote a post Vote Where TPOL Moves Next! And I’ll Go There. It came as no surprise that the leader in that poll is Tirana, Albania. I’m sure that place received votes because it doesn’t sound like a great place to move (see Mistake of Mongolia). At the same time, there were others that were equally if not more unappealing including random cities in India and China.
Today, I went back to NomadList and found that the website had been updated. I used the same criteria as before (fast internet, safe, no snow) and took advantage of the more flexible option for cost of living (above $1000 and below $2000). This time the system popped out a much more refined list. Taking out cities with frozen tundras, and bumping up the safety percentage to over 75% led to ten finalists. I regret to say that Tirana did not make the cut.
Here is the breakdown of the cities followed by the new poll: (This time the Manaforts of the world who tried to rig the last election will be blocked via IP.)
|#||City||Country||Cost of Living per month||Temperature in December (Celsius)||Internet Speed (mbps)||Safety||Nomad Score|
|4||Las Palmas, Gran Canaria||Spain||$1420||21||24||85%||91%|
