Sydney is overrated.

Paris is far more livable imo.

Côte d'Azur is a lovely area to live. Nice, Montpellier, Monte Carlo and etc. are amazing cities to live (and you don't have to be that rich )

I lived 3 years in Paris and absolutely hated it.
I was almost in a depression in the end.

Unfriendly people, lots of stress, impossible to drive, 810E for 30m2 (!!!!), not clean, not safe.....

I'm way better in the Metz area now
