Model Answer:
I visited India 2/3 years back and at that time I took a journey from Kolkata to New Delhi and then back to Kolkata on the next day. This was indeed a very long journey compared to the usual journey I have had. It was probably March 2012 when I went to India to meet a colleague. I went to Kolkata to meet him and then an emergency appeared to get back to my embassy in New Delhi.

From the Kolkata train station, I booked a seat in an express train and started my journey alone. It took me more than 26 hours to reach New Delhi train station and after finishing my task at the embassy I took a train again to get back to Kolkata.

The main transportation I used was express train and apart from that I had to take a taxi and local tram during this journey. After I took my seat on the train I started reading a book I had with me. After few hours I went to the lunch boggy to have my lunch and there I met a person from my country. He was a photojournalist and we had a long conversation. I slept on the train at night and listened to the music in my iPad. I bought some local English magazines and read interesting stuff. In the next morning I reached New Delhi station and from there I went to my embassy. I finished my tasks there and get back to another train to Kolkata. On my way back, I watched the villages and people the train was passing and took many photos that I instantly updated on my blog. Apart from the long hour’s journey and being alone in the whole journey, I enjoyed the trip.
