    • What event/ experience it was
    • Who was with you
    • Where and when it took place
Sample Answer 

Childhood is the time when we create memories. There are many memorable events from
my childhood. One of those is a trip to Bhadraj temple. The place was located in the western region of Mussoorie. It was a quaint temple. I visited the place with my parents when I was 12 years old. I vividly remember we reached the destination after a long, hard journey and we hiked a gigantic mountain. we were all fatigued; however, the breathtaking view from the apex of the mountain was worth it. The snow-covered peaks of the great Himalayan range were visible from there. The temple was made out of pure white marble, situated just in the cradle of mother nature, and was a symbol of purity and calmness. Fortunately, the weather conditions became favourable and we experienced snowfall for the first time. My parents and I tasted the essence of authentic garhwali food which included chains and dubuk. We tried to capture as many mesmerising views as we could with our digital camera. The trip was the most memorable event from my childhood because I spent quality time with my parents and created lots of memories
