Model Answer:

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to say something about this interesting topic. Even though I haven’t had that many boat journeys in my life, whenever I had one, I always enjoyed it. Today, I would like to talk about one such boat journey that was, and still is, memorable for a number of reasons.

Anyway, I had this boat journey about a couple of years ago during the rainy season when a couple of my distant cousins told me that they were planning to travel to a weekly open market on a boat to buy some stuff from the market. These cousins of mine also are very good friends of mine since we all are of the same age category.

We took this boat journey not because we actually needed to visit the open market to buy anything for ourselves but because we just wanted to enjoy the beautiful sight of many, many boats, freely roaming on the body of water that was surprisingly so clear and quiet.

Needless to say, I immediately got very excited about the idea and started our journey in the morning after finishing breakfast. Luckily, it wasn’t raining at that time, but the river was swelling with water. Thankfully, the boat was large with a rather spacious rear, from where the boatman was operating his boat, and we all sat there even though the boatman and his aides weren’t exactly very comfortable with the idea because of safety reasons. Nevertheless, we were lucky enough to be allowed to sit there until our boat reached the market safely after a good one-hour journey.

Anyway, at the end of our journey, I felt like it was one of the most exciting journeys I have ever had because it allowed me to enjoy the spectacular view of a full river for the first time. It also felt very adventurous at times, given how forcefully the boat was running by cutting through the surface of an otherwise calm and friendly river. So, we are glad that we took this memorable journey.
