Sample answer

Leisure activities are interesting pursuits that we all do during our time off from work or studies. There is a variety of such activities ranging from reading to arts and crafts that one may take up as a hobby or an extracurricular activity. I have had many personal favorites over the years, but my most favorite leisure activity is driving. I really like to drive my car whenever I have some time to myself. I have done a lot of solo driving trips to many different places. While some are near to my place, some are far away as well.

Driving cars is a passion for me, and I learned driving as soon as I turned 18. Since then I have spent a huge part of my relaxing time behind the wheel. I really enjoy the feeling of being on the open roads, maneuvering a huge machine while listening to my favorite songs. It is a very beneficial activity as it allows me to explore and travel to new places in a comfortable and safe manner. I have spent many weekends camping out in remote villages and dense forests, learning new things and meeting different kinds of people. The best part about driving as per me is the thrill of the empowering feeling that driving a car gives me.

I purchased my own car last year and now spend my weekends going to new places and driving the car around with friends or alone. It has almost become a routine activity and I am very fond of it.
