We were super excited to visit this fabulous place as we were going there for the first time. We decided to go by our own car. As i am an early bird by nature, it was easy for me to wake up in the early morning. We hit the road before 6am. We reached Jaipur in the evening and checked in a hotel.

Sample Answer 2


Well, I am fond of travelling, i like visiting new places in my leisure (free) time. Usually, I travel on public transportation because it is cost-effective.

However, today, I am going to talk about a long car journey which I went on last year. At that time, I paid a visit to Golden Temple, Amritsar. Actually, on the occasion of Diwali, I decided to celebrate this festival at this religious place. I heard a lot that one must visit Golden temple on Diwali as it is celebrated there on a grand level.

So, I went there with my family members. As it was almost 7 hours long journey so we went there by our car. As we had to cover a long distance so we started our journey very early at 5 am. We also wanted to enjoy pleasant weather in the morning and there is less rush on the roads when you start your journey early. Moreover, we wanted to visit other nearest Sikh temples as well like, Taran taran Sahib,Goindwal sahib and many more.

So, traveling by car sounds good instead of public transport when you want to explore more places. Having visited Amritsar, at first, I paid obeisance to God and then ate food at the community kitchen. The taste of that food was out of this world. After eating, I explored market and did shopping. I bought Souvenir and some traditional cuisine as Amritsar is a famous place for its traditional food. As far as my feelings are concerned, I felt delighted (very happy).


The whole experience of that car journey was incredible. I not only visited Amritsar but also went to other religious places there. Although, I travelled a lot and I was exhausted(tired) but journey was unforgettable.
