Sample 1

Well, many times, it happens when people lose their way. Sometimes it may be due to lack of knowledge of the way as well as people are unfamiliar with those places. Similarly happened to me when I went to Himachal with my husband to attend a wedding and we were very happy while making this plan. We left for Himachal in the early morning, and winter season was going on, so it was a foggy day, and we could hardly see our way. But after sunrise, we took a sigh of relief, but we got puzzled about where to go because we didn’t know the way, so at that time, my husband got an idea to take the help of Google Map, and we followed the way showed by it. It was a great puzzle for us as I thought we were in a computer game and finding our way. We were very tired and got bored with the continuous journey we didn’t halt on the way as it was necessary for us to reach on time. Many times we observed that after struggling alot, we reached the same place where we started our journey and by anyhow how reached in Himachal and asked the strangers about the directions of the place then in the noontime we reached there. In Himachal. So that time we got lost our way and with the help of technology as well as the local people we found our way.

Sample 2

When I get time, I love travelling to a different places. Today I would like to share an experience where I have gone, but the place was new to me. Actually, it happened last year. During my life, I have never been to Delhi due to my busy schedule. However, last year me and my colleague went to attend a seminar at Delhi Connaught place, an unknown area of the capital city. We travelled by car there, and both of us were unaware of the venue of the place. We have even used a map, but it was so perplexing that we had taken an hour to reach at 10 minutes distance place. Earlier, we used a map but were in great dilemma due to extreme roads. Afterwards, we have taken consultation of the passenger passing thereby and moved on, but the matter was not solved yet, and we were totally frustrated due to this inconvenience as we travelled long back from Amritsar. In the end, we called our team manager, and then he sent a route guide person to us, and within 5 minutes, we reached the place. Till date, I have never forgotten this happening of an event that made me impatient and also irritable a lot, yet we have learnt a lot at the seminar.
