Describe a time when you tried to do something but it was not very successful

  • What you tired to do?
  • What is, was it?
  • Why did you fail to do it?
  • How did you feel about it?

Well, many times, people make plans, but due to losing strategies, they sometimes get failed to make their plans successful. Similarly happened to me when I tried to make a plan to visit Manali. I was over the moon making this arrangement. Out of the blue, I made a plan by consulting with my parents. So without a hitch, we started our journey on Sunday.

We didn’t pre-check the accommodation because we were in great ecstasy, but things got worse when we reached the spot, and we didn’t find the ideal accommodation. We visited door to door hotels, but all were occupied. We were in great distress because our mood had got spoilt.

We felt sorry for not making an advance booking, and on top of that, we had to return back on the same day. We were very exhausted due to the tiresome journey. We couldn’t enjoy it, and we reached home very late. All in all, it was an awful experience.
