    Question It was or It is + present perfect

    Is there any difference in meaning between the following two sentences?

    1) It was the best experience I have had in my life.
    2) It is the best experience I have had in my life.

    Thanks

    You don't have to use present perfect tense.
    1) It was the best experience I (have) had in my life. talking about a past experience
    2) It is the best experience I (have) had in my life. could be talking about the present or the past

    Thanks
