Model Answer:
I haven’t had much opportunity to go for excursions as a student except on a couple of occasions when I was attending junior college. Today, I would like to talk about one of those excursions which I really enjoyed.

The excursion, I went for, took place about 8 years ago from now when I was a second-year junior college student. In the beginning, I wasn’t exactly very interested in taking part in that excursion since it was organized on a chilly day (yes, I don’t like cold at all), but when the supervisor-in-charge of the excursion told us that we were going to get some extra marks for our courses, I reluctantly decided to take part in that excursion. We were twenty of us gathered in our school before we took off for the journey in a big bus in order to visit a very old rock site.

After we had left the school compound on our school bus, we all began to talk about and anticipate the exact picture of the rock and the landscape of our destination. In fact, I told a classmate of mine -John- who sat beside me while inside the school bus that we ought to be careful there because we didn’t want the rocks to fall on us. Not to mention, of course, he, along with my other fellow students, laughed sparingly at me because of my funny suggestion.

Anyway, after reaching the rock site, we climbed the rock. We then looked down from the top of the rock, only to find that everything underneath looked so small. Besides, we also saw some rare kinds of insects which were living on the rocks. By the way, I was so glad that I finally decided to go for the excursion.

Well, I enjoyed the excursion so much, because it allowed me to see a very unique kind of landscape which I had never seen before. I enjoyed it so much also because it had allowed me to share some funny moments and jokes with my friends like never before.
