Model Answer 1:

Las Vegas is one of the most impressive resort towns I have ever seen, and I want to be there with some of my close mates. I want a trip on a car with them.

Las Vegas is mostly famous for the colourful nightlife. This is a resort town located in the Mojave Desert in Nevada. The town has some specialities and during the night times, it looks best. The entire city is well decorated and illuminated. The most amazing feature of the city is the musical fountain. It is synchronised with music. Besides, the Strip is also another attractive issue at the town. The replicas like Eiffel Tower, Egyptian Pyramids etc. are also some adorable things here. The city is around 125 kilometres away from my town, Bullhead City in Arizona.

Recently my buddy David has got a brand new car on his 19th birthday. But he is unable to drive the car since his dad is not allowing him to move with the car until the college exams are done. Thereby, he is planning to make a trip with his car. Hence I want to go there on David’s car. In fact, I have my own motorbike but my parents are highly anxious about my rough and tough driving. They have become more cautious after my last accident when I broke my knee. I am under a kind of restriction on driving. So, I am unable to move for the trip and if I had the chances, I would have moved alone. Alas! I have no other way to wait until the exams are over. David has also turned crazy like me make the tour.

I am a student at Everest College and having an undergrad course in economics. I have a group of six members in the college. We love to be together always like having a group study, moving for a theatre, joining at any ceremony and more. Sometimes we make some short trips in some less distant areas. Now we are planning to have a trip in Las Vegas. Though I went there for several times with my dad to meet my uncle who owns a small pub there, I did not have the chance to move on my own. Dad always was with me lest I get into any bar or pub and have a drink. In fact, my parents are conservative in some aspects.

I would like to go there by car because it is a long journey. Las Vegas is around 125 kilometres away from my home. Moving such a distance alone is not preferable for me. Moreover, if I become a victim of an accident, there is none to look after me on the highway to Vegas. Even there are some risks to move alone in the city until you are matured enough to protect yourself from any sudden invasion. Considering all the issues, I have decided to make the trip with my friends and moreover, it would be great fun for us. All of us have visited the town but we lack the experience to stay at night there. So, I am going there on the car that will be driven by David.
