  • who would be with you
  • when are you planning to take this trip
and explain why you want to take this trip and why this is special to you.

Model Answer 1:
I am a girl of 18 and just have crossed my higher secondary. Now it is time for me to get a graduate admission. I am planning a very special trip outside of Pakistan once I am done with the admission.

I am planning to visit the neighbouring countries like India, Nepal and Bangladesh. There is a good number of visiting places for the tourists. Besides, the natural views are also priceless in those places. Always I have heard that travelling expands the outlook and broadens our mind. I had chances to visit the entire country of mine but never have had the chance to visit the other countries. I Hope this would be a great trip for me and help me enriching my knowledge and real-life skills.

I have been brought up in a liberal environment but my parents were always with me. They have behaved me like my friends and I have also shared everything with them. Whenever I went to any external trip out of the city, I was accompanied by either my father or by my mother. So, I expect this time I will be accompanied by one of them. But I want both of them to be with me on this special trip. In fact, they have not visited the neighbouring countries. My father remains busy with his teaching (he is a university professor) while my mother cares for the home. They have passed their life in this monotonous way and now I think this is their time to relax.

I think the admission process will be done within the next summer. The admission process is really difficult and I am planning to get admitted to the University of Punjab. This is one of the best and prominent universities in the country and adjacent to my home. After having the admission, I will start the trip. But at the same time, I have planned for the other necessary tasks. I do not have my own passport and planning to get one within next two months. Besides, getting visas for the countries is another important tasks, especially getting the visa for India since there are some political disturbances between the two countries. Managing visa for Bangladesh and Nepal would be easier, I think. When all the things will be done, I will need to wait to start the journey.

This is a very special trip for me in some aspects. The most important thing is that I have never board on an airplane. This will bring a chance for me to ride on the plane. Besides, I have read histories of the colonial periods but have not seen the places where the British domination took place in India. This will also meet my thirst to visit the places and get to know them personally. Additionally, my parents will be with me and it will also increase the joy of the trip. So, considering all the issues, I think this is a very special trip for me.


Model Answer 2:
First I want to thank you for this nice topic. I have a dream to visit some parts of the world, particularly Europe. So, if I get a chance, I will visit there and enjoy the beauty of the European countries. So far, I came to know that the countries in the region are beautiful and take different shapes at different times of the year. It would be a nice experience for me to travel in the streets of the European countries and learn how people's lifestyle is there.

I would like to take my best friend, Robert with me. In fact, without his company, I would not enjoy the trip much. In the past, I made some trips with him and found that he was able to handle the unwanted situations. He is smart enough to respond to emergencies and knows best to cope up with people he does not know. So, if he is with me, I would be able to make the trip more meaningful. He is a great tour-companion.

To be honest, I am yet to set the date for this trip. I have planned for it and will make it happen when everything will be in order. First of all, I need a large amount of money to have this trip. Besides, I also need to manage enough time for that purpose. As an undergrad student, it is really tough for me to manage a long break. But I have the plan to make the trip by the next summer.

This is a very special trip for me for several reasons. I have never made a trip to a European country and if I can go there, I will have learn how the life in Europe is. Besides, the fellowship of my friend will also be enjoyable to me and I have plans to do many things together. My parents also have their consent to it. I hope my trip to Europe will happen soon.
