Sample 1 :
I love to travel to exotic places and most of the time I go with my friends. Many rememberable incidents happen during the whole journey. I remember I couple of years back, I went to Anandpur Sahib which a religious place in Punjab India. My friend brought a new car and me with other friends were on the way. When we reached the middle of the journey about 50 KM away from my hometown, Car started to pull to the left-hand side and then I told the driver that there is something wrong with the car. We parked the car alongside the road and found that left-hand front tyre was punctured. Then, I took out jack and raised the vehicle using it. To make things worse, another friend told me that there is not air spare wheel. Fortunately, we were very near to the city and took the tire to repair shop. Then we got repaired both the tyres and recheck the inflation level of all wheels. It wasted two hours of our journey. But except for this incident, we really enjoyed this tour.
Sample 2 :
Well, it hasn’t happened very often to me when my convenience broke down in between my journey. However, I remembered around five years ago; my bike broke down while I was travelling with my friend to the market. Actually, on that day, we made a plan to buy some new clothes, that’s why we went to the market. However, in the middle of our journey while on the way of the market, my bike stopped suddenly. I didn’t know the reason behind the breakdown then I started, again and again, my bike, but I failed. Also a nice person offered us help and he tried to start the bike. But the bike did not start. Then we decided to look for a mechanic. Luckily, we were nearby the market, and within some time we found the mechanic shop. Within half an hour, the mechanic found the problem in the bike and immediately fixed it. After that, we dropped the plan for shopping and came back to our home after 2 hours. From that time, I learnt that never relied on machine 100%. Now I always keep my two-wheeler regularly serviced so that this type of problem does not happen again.
