    What was your best moment of 2012?

    A year in Europe


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Engineer Mike Fisher says he and his family showed up moments before the start of the Monaco Grand Prix with no tickets -- but managed to find a small ticket booth set up on the street by a local night club.

    For less than the price of one ticket to the race, the whole family watched the race with a 360 degree view with the famous Hotel Fairmont hair-pin bend.

    Mike says: “We felt like we were celebrities, given the location and treatment we got! My son was screaming 'FERRARI' every time one of the red race cars flew by and my daughter liked it too, since there were statues of mermaids around.”

    Spent a year in living and Germany with my family for my job. Traveled to 10 countries. Highlight was during a week on the French Riviera, attended the Grand Prix of Monaco and drove the track afterwards. My 4 year old son is crazy about cars and he was just losing his mind!
