雅思口语part2话题卡: Describe a trip that you went on by public transportation 乘公交工具旅行
这道题也属于变形金刚类型的话题卡，也就是我们常常在雅思口语中见到的老题翻新的题目，曾经有考过Describe a car journey you went on（烤鸭们可以当做灵感来源） 这次的旅行变成了乘坐public transportation（公共交通），那么哪些交通工具算作是公共交通的一部分呢？比如最常见的巴士🚌（bus),还有地铁（subway）。好了，接下来就得思考一下你去哪儿玩了。公交一般都不会特别远。所以，可以是一场郊外游，或者是城内一日观光游等等。
Describe a trip that you went on by public transportation
You should say:
What it is
When you went there
Who you were with
And explain how you felt about it
I trip that I had by public transportation was taken place in Xi’an. It was a bus that led us to one of the famous tourist spot, the Terror Cotta Warriors, from the downtown of Xi’an.
It was a summer weekend in my college life about 8 years ago. I wasn’t suppose to get to any place on that day, but an American buddy of mine asked me out to be a tour guide for his newly arrived friend from Texas. So, I agreed to accompany them.
Well, that day was nothing special but there’s one thing that really pissed us off. The traffic really sucked on that day. Driving seemed impossible if we wanted to get to the destination on time, so we turned to the bus station. This article is from Laokaoya website. Do not copy or repost it. Then, we queued up for nearly one hour until we got onto the bus and let ourselves sit still on the scorching seat.
To avoid getting annoyed by our tiredness on the bus, we kept ourselves in different dialogues. Joked about life issues, stereotypes caused by the culture discrepancy, etc. I should day, that bus trip wasn’t bad with those friends from afar, and I did my part well introducing the history of the figures in the pits before we reached to the museum.
Jeez, this bus trip would be a horrible one if I went there alone. I just hope the government of Xi’an could invest a little bit more to improve the condition of the bus, for example, setting up an air-conditioner on the bus, so that the passengers could felt less uncomfortable in the sultry summer.
