Model Answer 1:
Last year, I went to Salado, a small village in Texas under Bell County. This was a charming place indeed to visit and pass some leisurely moments with family and friends. I enjoyed the day-long trip in Salado and participated in many attractive activities which made the day unforgettable. This is an elegant candidate task card topic for me and here is the detail description of the day.

I went with Tom and Bill, two of my intimate friends. We have been born and brought up in the same area in Texas and also study in the same college. In fact, we made a plan to visit the countryside in the state and accordingly picked this tiny village to spend a day. So, on the planned day, we started the journey and reached there within a short time. It was an exciting event for all of us as it was the very first journey out of the city together.

We did lots of things. Fishing on the Salado Creek was the most entertaining activity there. Roasting the fishes, taking lunch under the open sky, strolling on the village streets and enjoying the calm nature was the key activities there. We also took breakfast at one of the local restaurants, Stagecoach Inn, with the traditional menu. Swimming on the lake was another notable event there.

The visit was enjoyable for many reasons. It was a relief for us from the monotonous life of the city. We became exhausted on the daily routine of college and home, completing the assignments and more. So, an exciting break from the urban life was needed to recharge ourselves. Accordingly, after making the plan, we materialized it. And felt refreshed when returned to the city. The memories of the trip will last longer.

1. My visit to Mui Ne was remarkable indeed. The place is located adjacent to Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam and now has become a great place for the weekend destination. I was amazed by the natural beauty of the place and the bay area. The wind from the bay pleased me much while I surfed kite too.

2. Kitashiobara is a small town in Japan and primarily famous for its mountain forest. I went there with my family members to pass the weekend and enjoyed a lot. The overall view is wonderful and attracts everyone. The natural lake is the key attraction in this place and it changes colour naturally.

3. Carmel-by-the-Sea is a lovely countryside in California. The place is also known as Carmel and famous for its picturesque views. Hiking on the sandy beach is truly exciting while the foods of the place are yummy. I had spent an entire day in this place and explored the major spots. Many of the tourists gather here for the beach festival.

4. Finding the right countryside in the UK is not difficult if someone has the direction or address. I am not an exception and got such a place in Suffolk in the UK. In fact, East Bergholt is a nice place to visit and local history is interesting. The locality is famous for the Impressionist Movement and provides a lucrative view to the visitors.

5. Chernivtsi is locally known as Little Vienna in Ukraine. I paid a day-long visit here to get to know about the local cultures and customs. The place is known for its status as the UNESCO-protected building. I loved the cafes made with Vienna-style.

Model Answer 1: People around the world wear different sorts of dresses and due to geographical location and seasonal changes, the attires vary. I always prefer wearing jeans clothes, especially jeans pant and shirt.
