My Happiest Moment

My Happiest Moment

If I could rewind time, let me relive the moment when I was in Europe about 2 years ago. It was my first time traveling such a distance. It was also winter season, and my, being there was my happiest moment.

This moment doesn’t just last for a split second, in fact – it was a duration of 50 (seem long, but actually very short) days.
