BAND 8.0 SAMPLE ANSWER:

Like many other young people, I don’t have the habit of waking up early every day; only for special occasions. Last weekend, my friends and I decided to go on a trip to the mountainous area of my country called [………..]. We had to leave very early in the morning so that we didn’t get stuck in the traffic. We would also get to spend more time there.

It wasn’t easy to get up early in the morning. I was so excited about the trip that I had barely slept that night. I had never been to this place before. It is located in the northern part of my country, so I knew that we faced a long drive ahead. We had decided to go by car since, that way, all 5 of us could travel together. Moreover, everyone reckoned that it would be safer than going by motorbike. Waking up early did not feel that bad at all, even though it was the first time I had done so for many months. To begin with, I felt a bit sleepy, but then the pure morning air changed it completely.

After 5 hours of driving, we arrived at our destination. We were amazed to see a vast land filled with yellow color terraced rice fields, ready to be harvested. Under the sunlight, these rice fields sparkled like gold. We stayed for one night with a local host and helped the family with their regular tasks before setting out for home the next day. It was such an amazing trip, and it helped us to learn more about the countryside and the way of life of those who live there. I‟d love to make more trips like that in the future.
