I think almost everybody loves to travel for work or fun. I have visited many places in my life. Sometimes I carry my own vehicle, other times I prefer to use public transport. Here I would like to talk about a long car journey to Chandigarh.
My friend is living there. A year ago, his big brother got married. I was invited to attend his brother’s marriage. We were five friends. We left for Chandigarh at 6:00am. We halted at many places during the journey and on reaching near Chandigarh, we have had launch in a famous restaurant “Rasoi”.
We reached our friend’s home at 3:00pm. They welcomed us and in the evening, We joined a marriage ceremonial function named “Jago”. After that, we all enjoyed dancing on the beats of DJ and next day we attended the wedding. The new couple was looking so stunning together.
After the wedding, we left for sightseeing and we also visited the Rock garden and we all got amazed by the beautiful sculptures made from waste material. We saw all the designs and took many pictures. First time in our lives, we realised the importance of recycling.While returning, we enjoyed singing songs in the car.So this was the long journey which we went on by a car.
Include following lines to cover more time:
We chose car for our journey because there was no direct route to the Chandigarh from our homes and also we had three luggage bags and it would be difficult to carry them in buses. Also car is more convenient and it gives us privacy.
Well, I love travelling by my own car specially long Car drives. This thing help us me to get a chance to enjoy my life with my friends or family. So here I would like to talk about a long car journey which I did about 18 months ago. Actually on that time, I went to Delhi with my friends.
About 18 months ago, there were my summer vacations. Some of my friends and I decided to go somewhere to visit historical place. After proper discussion, we decided to go to Delhi by car.
Delhi is 300 km far away from my hometown. So, It was a long journey.
We started our journey in morning at 4 o’clock in order to avoid traffic on the way. Also it helped us to escape us from the scorching heat of sun. We enjoyed pleasant Weather in morning.
During this journey, we also visited a beautiful Park on the way. Actually one of my friends suddenly said me to stop the car on the way. Then he told me that he had seen a beautiful Park and he started insisting all friends to go there. So we visited this Park named “Naveen Park”.
Apart from it, during this long car journey, we stopped our car on restaurant named “Dharma Karma Punjabi Restaurant”. There, we ate food according to our own choice. We enjoyed the food service of this restaurant.
Moreover, when we were going to Delhi on car, I clicked some pictures of my friends as well as mine to make these moments memorable. We also clicked a group photo and I had hung it on the wall of my home.
So after 6 hours, we reached Delhi. There, we visited some tourist places such as , red Fort, India Gate, rose garden in president house, food streets and so on.
In Delhi, we stayed at Hotel for 2 days. After visiting beautiful places in Delhi, we came back to home to complete the pending work of summer vacations.
All in all, it was a memorable long car journey which I enjoyed very much. It filled me with happiness and love. I will never forget this journey during my whole life.

Part 3: Details Discussion
Q. Why do people like to have private cars?
A. Private cars are has become essential in the current days, though it was considered as a luxury in the past. It was also considered as a symbol of status and nobility among the people. But the necessity of cars has increased to a great extent and at the same time, the prices are affordable. Moreover, it helps saving time to reach destinations. For example, if you are the owner of a private car, you no longer need to stand in a queue for tickets or for riding a public bus. Sometimes, the buses are jam-packed and you might not have the chance to ride in. So, I think the popularity of private cars is on the increase.
Q. What are the differences between using bicycles and private cars?
A. Bicycles and private cars have differences. Though you need no fuel and there are some health benefits of a bicycle, you cannot ride more than two people together and it takes times to reach places riding a bicycle. This is not a speedy mode of transport while the cars are speedier than a car. Besides, the seats are uncomfortable on a bicycle while the car seats are comfortable and spacious. But you need to get fuels for the car while your physical labour is enough to drive the bicycle ahead. Safety is not ensured for any of the modes but if you are careful, you can stay safe.
Q. Is it a good thing that everyone owns cars?
A. I think the idea of getting a private car for everyone is not wise. Public transportation is also required in a city. When the numbers of private cars are more in the town, there are more chances to develop more traffic congestion which kill times. A private car can accommodate maximum six to ten passengers at a time while the public transports like buses or trains could hold passengers ten times more than the private car. Besides, when anybody will have a car for him or her, parking of the cars is also a big issue for them. So, I think everyone should not own a private car.
Q. How to buy private cars in your country?
A. Buying automobile in Greece or in Europe is not a troublesome issue. One can generally buy two types of cars including second-hand used car or brand new. But the first and important thing is that you must own a driver license to buy a car. There are numerous car-selling showrooms and agents are available. They can provide you with the car ranging from the1950s to the current days. But you are to make sure that you are paying the price within a legal and reliable source. The buyer should arrange for the necessary paperwork before buying the car and present the documents to the car selling agents to prove their legality.
Q. What’s the difference between men and women’s preference for cars?
A. Women usually want their car to be gorgeous and cute in look while the men underscore for the engines and strengths of the car. Women try to colour the body after their preferred colour but the men are different in this case. Men want to have heavy duty tire with a power steering wheel. Sometimes they prefer boosters on the cars to run like a crazy bull. But a majority of the women are against this view and they drive their cars so smoothly so that the cars should not get any spot on the body. But naturally, men are desperate over such issues. They do not care much about the cars until the care turns into the must for the car. Nearly all of the times the male drivers run their cars roughly, while women are not seen to be mad like them.
Q. How the future cars would be in your opinion?
A. Future is entirely unpredictable but there are few possibilities that the cars will fly in the air. It may sound weird now but after twenty to thirty years, the world will experience cars those are flying in the sky. Air terminals will be set in different parts for the flying cars. Some of the cars would be able to drive through the water. Science fiction movies frequently show such cars which are flying or driving through water but I think the scenarios will be as usual shortly in the real-life. Humans have done things which were unimaginable before those were done and someday this idea may also be materialised if everything goes well in the world.
Q. Do many families own private cars in your country?
A. Yes, many of the families have their own private cars in our country. But the uses of those cars are limited. They mainly use the cars for the purposes of travelling long distances such as visiting relatives living in the other cities or when going on vacations together etc. And they prefer using public transports for their daily purposes and inside the city commuting. As a result, the traffic congestion has been reduced to many extents.
