Please would you help me and correct these sentences in which I have tried to use "a new lease of life."
1. It was first when Peter moved to a new country that he felt a new lease of life.
2. A trip to the Adriatic Sea gave her a new lease of life.
Sentence 1 should start "It was when Peter first moved to a new country ..."
"On life" is the expression I know.
In BrE, we use "new lease of life" and "new lease on life". In my experience and local variant, the first is more common.
