Model Answer 1:
In most of my holidays, I go to visit my family members in my hometown. For my job, I am currently residing in the capital city of my country but my parents, siblings, grandparents, uncle and aunts are living in our hometown. So in most of my holidays, I go to visit my family members. My typical holidays last for 4-5 days most of the time and sometimes I get longer holidays.
When I was a university student, I had some friends studying in the same faculty who were from my hometown. During my university study we used to go to our hometown together on our vacations but nowadays I go to my hometown mostly alone. The journey takes about 6-7 hours by bus. Sometimes we travel by train and this train journeys usually take 8-9 hours including the stoppage. Though the journey is tiresome sometimes, but the thought of meeting my family members and the excitement of being in the place I really love, wash away the tiresomeness and monotonous feeling of the journey.
The time I stay with my family members and local friends, I enjoy the moments very much. This is the town where I grew up and naturally all of my childhood & adolescence memories are related to this place. I do lots of interesting things there during my holidays: I swim in the river, take care of the garden and firm we have, collect vegetables and fruits from our garden and then make arrangement to sell those to the local sellers, sometimes I catch fished, play with my friends both indoor and outdoor games, visit different places and do lots of other stuff.
In my city life, I have to follow a strict timeline and stay at my office most of the time, but in my hometown where I mostly go during my holidays, I am quite free and do whatever I feel like doing and spend time with the people I care most. That’s why I prefer to go to my hometown during my holidays rather than going to other places.
