… while Luana’s night out began on a flight bound for Amman, Jordan.

Sergio’s night out was jn New York on New Year’s Eve 2014 at a concert in Central Park.

Artur writes about his memorable night out:


My memorable night began on 10th November, 2012 – 5 years ago, in Krakow (Poland). Together with my wife we were expecting the birth of our second daughter. As usual we went to bed about 10:00 p.m. Three hours later my wife woke me up and told me that she was probably about to give birth.

I quickly called a taxi and we went to the hospital. Immediately my wife was admitted to the birth room. I was with her in the hospital all the time. In the hospital I was disinfected and dressed in special medical sterilized clothes. They were green.

When the sun was shining in the sky, at 9:05 a.m. our youngest daughter Sarah was born. It was Sunday, 11th November. Although in Poland at this time of year it is already autumn, it was quite warm and a very sunny day. It was an additionally special day, because on this day National Day  is celebrated in Poland  – Independence Day.

When our daughter Sara was born, we celebrated the 94th anniversary of regaining independence after the annexation of Poland by Prussia, Russia and Austria. As family and friends offered us their best wishes for Sara’s birth, they said Sara would be the child of victory. Indeed, she is a very independent and brave girl. It was a very emotional night. I came back home at noon and immediately went to bed.

And now – 

Over to you!

    Hello Michael,

    It was in july three years ago when i was in holiday in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Cambodia is an axtraordinary place for the culture, the people and particularly for the religion. I love all religions but the buddhist religion involves all my senses.
    I was with my best friend and I wore a t-shirt and shorts because was really hot weather. That evening walked around the center of Siem Reap; we ate the traditional cambodian soup with prowns and we walked around the Art and Craft market.
    We go back to hotel at 2. a.m.. After three hours a “tuc tuc” was waiting for us to go see sunrise at Angkor Wat: the biggest sacred archaelogical heritage of the world. It was the Kmer Kingdom’s capital with 278 temple. There where many people but when sun began to rise the people where in silent contemplation!

      Many thanks for this nice comment, Carlo.
      Here are some corrections to help you:
      1) “when I was on holiday”
      2) “because it was really hot weather”
      3) “traditional Cambodian soup with prawns”

      More corrections soon! I hope these help.

    Hi Michael,

    It was on 27th December 2014 and I was inside the plane get to New York airport ( JFK ). It was the first time of a such a long journey and I was worry because I needed to move for a journey so long.
    I wore a pullover with yeans and coat , the weather was very cold. I was with my family, my wife and my daughters. We lived at Midtown Manhattan near Central Park and precisely at Columbus Circle in front of Trump Tower.
    We were around the city all days to visit Empire S.B., Chinatown, Little Italy, Soho, Greenwich Village, Staten Island,Brooklyn, American Museum of Natural History, New York Public Library and other things.
    The New Year’s Eve was a memorable night because we were at concert to the Central Park and we were dancing all night under a doffix snow and eating typical foods. Then we got home really late at 5.00 in the morning.

    Yours Sergio.

  3. Hi
    My memorable night began on 30th march, 1975 –43 years ago. . I was in clinic with my life for the birth of the my first daughter. It was saturday that precedes Easter. I remenber that my daughter was born just at midnight while the bells were ringing for the resurrection of Jesus. At that moment I felt a very strong emotion. I have been near my wife until at 4 a.m. and I came back home at 5.00 in the morning.
    It was a wonderful and special day because Barbara was born. She was as beautiful as her mother.
    thanks see you soon!

    It was in December last year when I was on holidey in Barcelona with my boyfried. Iwore a black skirt and a red t-shirt and a woollen coat. We wolked along the Ramblas where there were many people and a lot of stands, musicians and street artists. Everything was animated and colorful…It was absolutely chaotic but fascinating!
    After the walk we went to a great restaurant in the gothic neighborhood. We ate fish and fried frogs!
    After dinner we went to several places and we talked to a lot of people! It was a cold night. We got back to the hotel at 2 a. m.
    It was a memorable night because we had great fun, we walked along one of the best known streets and we had a fantastic dinner!

      Many thanks Antonella! A correction:
      “along the Ramblas where there were a lot of people”

      “Much” and “Many” are usually used:
      – in questions and negatives
      – as the subject of a sentence.
      In statements where “much” and “many” form part of the object, we usually use expressions like “a lot of”, “quite a few”, “planty of” and similar.

      I hope this helps!

    Hi!
    It was last March. I was in Madrid for a vacation.
    I was with my friends, who were living there during Erasmus.
    I wore a light shirt, a blue jacket and blue trousers.
    We went to a students’ house, friends of my friends, for dinner.
    We ate pizza and drank a lot of wine.
    After the dinner, we went to a great disco in the center of Madrid.
    It was very late and the metro station was closed, so we got a taxi.
    At 3.00 am we went into the disco. The music was very cool!
    At 7.00 am we got home, but before, we had breakfast with a hamburger and chips at Mac Donald’s.
    At half past 8 I was in my bed. I was very tired.
    It was a memorable night because we were in a new and fantastic city. Also I met a lot of interesting guys.

    Thanks, see you soon!
