Sample Answer 1: (A time you got lost in a place you didn’t know)
Thanks for the opportunity to talk about a time when I get lost in a place I didn’t know. Well, I am a travel freak person and I like to visit different places around the country as well as the world. I always visit different places.
When I was a student of 9th grade, I went to a summer camp and got lost from my team.
It was at the beginning of summer when our school authority decided to take us to a summer camp in a remote place. We were thrilled to about that we are going to learn some extraordinary skills to survive. When we were taken to the place, we found a place is a different form of natural beauty and the camping sites were perfect for us. Following the teachers’ instruction, we pitched our camps and some of us started collecting woods for fueling the food preparation for the first night under the open sky. I also went to collect woods (although there were fewer trees), I was lost.
I was with three of my friends to collect woods to be used as fuel for preparing the foods at night. So, four of us started to collect woods in four different directions. As the entire location was almost like desert land, there were no large trees that we can collect woods.
So, I started walking and I walked for about 20 minutes in search of such woods. But there was no wood available and finally decided to uproot the grass-type smaller trees for fuel. I collected many of them and put those into my collection bag. But suddenly I realised that I am alone and I could not see any of my teammates who came with me to collect woods.
I felt scared. I heard that there were wild animals that kill the lone rangers in the deserts or try to attack them on their way. Moreover, I was afraid that what will happen if I cannot get back at the campsite. I also thought if the teachers and team members will look for me or not. I felt a deep sadness inside. I remembered my family members and friends.
I started thinking if I die now, they will be unable to find my body or the body may be eaten by the wild animals. Unfortunately, I left my compass inside the bag in the campsite and if that was with me, I could have started the return journey using the directions. Actually, I was truly scared when I was lost.
After sometimes, I started planning how to get back. I followed a straight path and reached the place currently I am standing on. But I was not able to get back to my camp. But after walking for some time I got some local people. I asked for help from them.
They showed me the way and I started walking. After walking for a few minutes, I heard some noises; in fact, it was my mates and the other students and teachers of the camp. They were looking for me and were shouting by my name. I felt a sense of relief that now I am not alone in the desert.
