What has been the best year of your life?

In one of my conversation clubs in school here in Ukraine, I asked my students what the best year of their life has been.

Warsaw Diary

Dear Diary, You should have seen the sea of green I flew in on. Unknowingly, I picked to fly into Warsaw on Aer Lingus with a plane change in Dublin on none other than St. Paddy’s Day.
