Model Answer:

Science has revolutionised human civilisation and touched every aspect of our life including how we commute or travel. We now fly like birds in the sky, and it reduces the time required for travelling to an amazingly great extent. Moreover, a trip by air is both thrilling and relaxing. I would like to thank you for giving me a chance to talk about a journey that I made by air.

I have travelled by air many times, but the excitement of experiencing it for the first time when I was just 11 years old is still vivid in my mind. My parents took me to visit my maternal aunt who used to live in a distant city than ours, and we flew to this aunt's city which brought a rare opportunity to me to travel by air and experience the journey on an aeroplane.

On that day, we reached the airport well ahead of our schedule. After the necessary formalities, we went inside the aeroplane, and after 20 minutes or so, the plane took off. Luckily, I got a seat beside a window. The aeroplane moved along the ground for a few minutes and then flew into the air. We passed over rivers, roads, and towns. I could see white clusters of clouds, and they seemed so near - as if I could touch them! Everything on the ground appeared so small and distant. Except for the first and last few minutes - at the time of taking off and landing, the flight was so smooth or at least this was what I felt. In less than 2 hours, we reached the destination which could otherwise take 18/20 hours on road.

I definitely liked the journey. It was so exciting an experience that I still remember it. As a young kid, everything was new and thrilling to me about this journey.
