Malta & Gozo - 3rd Best Country to Live in the World?

According to International Living Magazine Malta ranks as the 3rd best country to live in. Not quite sure how they came up with this result but, having lived here most of my life (bound to be biased to a certain degree!), we do often say that it is a great place to live and we have an excellent quality of life and that it would be hard to beat living elsewhere in Europe.
You can read a write up in the local paper, Sunday Times of Malta,  that came out today on this LINK .
