Model Answer 1:
I like to travel whether it is done by train, a bus or a plane. Of course, travelling by aeroplane is always more comfortable and quick, if anybody was to ask me about it. However, I don’t really get much of an opportunity to travel by plane, but I know a person who does.

He is none other than my 45-year-old neighbour "William Henry". I have known William for more than 10 years, since the time he moved to our neighbourhood, but I have seldom seen him travelling by train or bus when travelling a long distance.

In fact, I talked to him for the first time when I was going to pick up one of my friends at the domestic airport in my city. After that, I have seen him travelling by plane at least once a month. Of course, he takes a bus or train when he travels to short distances, but that too is only because no aeroplane flies to those places!

Anyway, I have travelled with this neighbour of mine a few times in the last few years or so, and every time I have travelled with him, he has advised me to fly as much as I could in order to save more time. He also told me that the more time I would save, the more money I would be able to make except, of course, he knew it very well that I wasn’t exactly as shrewd of a businessman as he is.

Indeed, my neighbour, William Henry, is a very successful businessman, as he is involved in exporting and importing different kinds of products. Besides, he is also the president of our city chamber of commerce, the apex body of all the businesses and industries of my city.

Well, I think that he frequently travels by plane because he wants to save time as much as he can in order to become more financially successful. Besides, since he has to travel to different places rather frequently, comfort also becomes an issue, and travelling by plane undoubtedly offers the best comfort one could hope for.


Model Answer 2:
One person I know who frequently embarks on aeroplane journeys is my friend Sarah, a passionate travel vlogger who has traversed the globe in pursuit of adventure and cultural exploration. As soon as I looked at this topic, I knew that I would be talking about this friend of mine.

Sarah is a dynamic and adventurous individual who has a passion for travel and discovery. As a travel vlogger, she documents her experiences and insights through captivating videos and blog posts, inspiring her audience to embark on their own journeys of exploration and self-discovery. Her YouTube channel has more than a million subscribers.

I first met Sarah during a backpacking trip to Southeast Asia several years ago. Bonding over our shared love for travel and adventure, we quickly became close friends and kindred spirits, often embarking on spontaneous escapades and exploring new destinations together.

Sarah's profession as a travel vlogger requires her to jet-set across continents on a regular basis, capturing the beauty and diversity of the world's most exotic locales. With an insatiable thirst for new experiences and cultural immersion, she eagerly seizes every opportunity to board a plane and venture into uncharted territories. 

Sarah's frequent travels by plane not only reflect her boundless spirit of exploration but also serve as a testament to her unwavering dedication to her craft. Through her captivating vlogs and travel narratives, she not only transports her audience to far-off destinations but also inspires them to embrace the wonders of the world and embark on their own transformative journeys. As a friend, I admire Sarah's adventurous spirit and zest for life, and I am continually inspired by her courage to venture beyond the confines of familiarity in pursuit of meaningful experiences and connections.
