Describe a Car Journey That You Remember Well
You should say:
- Where you went
- What you did
- Who you had the car journey with
- And explain how you felt about the journey
One car journey that really stuck out for me was the time when my household went on a road trip around the city Dalian before we settled there to learn more about it.
I didn’t use to hang out with my family very often, so that’s when we could finally spend some quality time together. Dad was behind the wheel, mom took the passenger seat and I sat in the back seat. I remember looking out of the window, and listening to my parents chatter away. I also chipped in occasionally. We had a good laugh along the way.
Then, after we arrived at the city, we stopped at some popular destinations, and that includes Xinghai Square, which offers a great view of the ocean. After dinner, we strolled along the seafront. I still remember how blown away I was by the stunning seaside view under the sunset. Though the annoying seagulls overhead kind of ruined the moment for me! Earlier that day, we also went to the aquarium and said hello to the adorable seals and penguins.
There are several things I liked about the journey. What struck me the most was how spontaneous it was. Traveling independently really allowed us to be flexible with our itinerary. One day we originally set out for a tourist attraction but suddenly decided It wasn’t worth the effort so we just lazed around and enjoyed some seafood instead.
So overall I’d say I really enjoyed this car trip. It not only created some amazing memories but also got me falling madly in love with the city in a matter of days.
1. What benefits does public transport bring to the world?
One benefit is that public transport allows many people to travel to work and school daily without having to drive themselves.
Not everyone can drive, and not everyone wants to drive, so it’s good to have buses, trains, and taxis available for people to use.
Public transport also lessens the number of vehicles on the road, which is beneficial to the environment.
Without a reliable and efficient public transport system, more and more cars and motorcycles would be on the road.
2. Is it too late for people to get their driver’s license at the age of 18?
I think 18 is the earliest age a person should get a driver’s license, so it’s not too late for me.
Although some countries allow teens as young as 14 to start driving small vehicles, I believe young teens are too immature and irresponsible to be given the privilege of driving.
They might get into an accident and ruin someone’s life. So 18 is a good age, but not necessarily the age everybody should get a license. It still depends on when a person is prepared to drive.
3. What qualities does a driver need to have?
So, what makes a good driver, you ask? Well, besides the obvious skills like steering and braking, there are a few important qualities that every driver should possess.
First and foremost, patience is key. You’ll encounter all sorts of traffic situations and frustrating moments on the road, so having a calm demeanor goes a long way.
Alertness and good observation skills are crucial too.
You’ve got to stay sharp, constantly scanning your surroundings, anticipating potential hazards, and reacting swiftly.
And let’s not forget about being courteous and respectful to fellow road users. It’s all about sharing the road!
