Model Answer:

I had a very close friend in my school level who is currently working as a doctor at ( ...say a place name... ) and I would like to travel to his living place. I have a plan to visit (...say the place name...) whenever I will get holidays for 4-5 days. The friend has invited me to visit his place and in the mean time he has visited my place twice. So my turn to visit his place has become mandatory. As he is living in a rural area where hills, tea gardens are available, I am sure I will enjoy my visit there.

There are three options to visit the place: bus, train and airplane. For me the airplane would be bit expensive and I like traveling by train, so I will take the train to visit there.

I have few reasons to visit this particular place. First of all, this area is famous for its natural beauty and a good number of local and foreign tourists visit this place each year. I would be able to enjoy my stay and live close to nature during my stay there and that would be a goof refreshment for me. Second, I would enjoy my friend's accompany there and as he has already visited my place twice, I feel kind of obliged to visit his living place. Another reason I would like to travel there is to stay away from the busy life and busy city for dew days.
