A memorable event is very common thing in any life. The event may be pleasant, may be enjoyable, may be tragic, and may be sorrowful. Someone memorizes any tragic moment, someone memorizes any enjoyable moment, someone memorizes any happy moment someone memorizes any sadness moment. Like others I have also a memorable event in my life it is a journey to Cox’s Bazar.
Journey is always pleasure to all. A successful and happy life cannot be imagined without making any journey during holidays. Therefore, with a view to making life successful and fruitful one should make any journey during one’s holiday. A journey means to go or visit one place to another place alone or with groups. There are different types of journey all over the world. Such as; Bus journey, train journey, plane journey, boat journey and rickshaw journey. Different types of people like different journey. Someone likes to make a journey by boat, someone likes to make a journey by bus, someone likes to make a journey by train, and someone likes to make a journey by plane. I also like these journeys but among them I like journey by bus very much.
During the last vacation I gained an opportunity to attend a journey that arranged from our university. It was the last movement of March. We had completed our Mid-Term exam. After completing our Mid-Term examination we got a short vacation. On that vacation our university arranged a picnic. They selected the Cox’s Bazar for the picnic spot. Cox’s Bazar is very far from Dhaka city. So we went there by bus. More than 200 students and 20 teachers attended the journey or the picnic. It was 1st long journey by bus in my life. We rented 5 buses to go there. From our batch my friends Hasib, Sofiq, Sumon, Miraz, Hassan, Jahid, Sakil and I went to the Cox’s Bazar.
Cox’s Bazar is very far from Dhaka so; we started our journey at 7 o’clock from our main campus premises. We went our main campus before 6:30 am. Then we took a small rest in our hall room. All of us took their essential elements. I also took my essential elements. I took a small breakfast and a bottle pure drinking water. We got on the bus in time. The scenery of the day was very fine. So, there was no problem to make our journey.
At 7 am the buses started their journey. I sat down beside the window. I was the leader of our class. So our teacher Mr. Sabbir Ahamed gave many packets of breakfast to give the packets among my friends. After sometimes I provided the packets among my friends in the bus. Then they started eating at last I also started eating breakfast with them. On the way we enjoyed very much. Some of us were singing, some were clapping, some were dancing, some were reading, and some were sleeping. I also shared with them. I sang a song which charmed all much. When the buses were running at the Cox’s Bazar I saw different sceneries on the way. I saw the green fields, high hills, small and big rivers, canals, different types of small and tall trees etc. I saw farmers were working their fields, small boys and girls were playing besides the road, boys were playing in the fields. When the buses running towards the Cox’s Bazar I thought trees, houses, green fields and other things were coming towards us.
The day was Friday. So at the time of zumua’s prayer the buses were stopped besides a large Mosque. We got down from the buses and washed our face. Then we entered in the Mosque and completed our prayer and took a small rest. The Mosque was decorated nicely. I was very pleased to see the Mosque. After sometimes we started our journey again. It was sunny noon, the weather was very hot and we were very tired. At 2:30 pm we reached at Chittagong city. As it was Friday, so the roads were free from traffic jam. When we crossed the city our buses were stopped again to eat our lunch. Our buses were stopped beside of a restaurant. Then we got down from the buses and entered in the restaurant. At that time we were very hungry and also tired. My friends and I sat down on a table. At first we washed our face and then we started our lunch. The foods item of the restaurant were vary delicious. So we ate our lunch deliciously. After completing our lunch we took a small rest and after sometimes later we got on the buses. Then our buses started their journey again.

Our hotel was situated beside a high hill. At 9 o’clock we went to the up of the hill. At first I was afraid and I felt very nervous. When my friends and teachers started walking I followed them and started walking with them. I caught my friend hasib’s hand to remove my frightened. He encouraged me much to remove my frightened and nervous. The roads were very long and narrow. After 10 minutes later we reached up on the hill. At that time it was sunny and the weather was very hot. So we were very tired. I looked all sides of that hill. I saw many things. On the away the village houses looked very small but these houses looked very beautiful.
The people of the hill were hard worker. After sometimes my friends and I went to a large vegetable garden up on the hill. We saw a young boy like us working in the garden. We introduced with the boy. The boy was friendly and cordial to us. I asked his condition and we also told him our condition. When he knew about are ours he was pleased to us.

At 5 pm my friends and I went to the beach to see the sun set. The bus was crowded by the people. We collected many photos of my friends and mine. We also collected many photos of the scenery of the beach. We were eagerly waited to see the scenery of sun set but we were unable to see the sun set of that day, because the sky was clouded and the sun was covered with black cloud. So we felt very upset.

So, I gained another opportunity to visit another place. At last I was bound to go their residence. In the afternoon I prepared to go there residence. As there residence was very far from our house so, I hired a Taxi cab to go there. When I went there residence they were pleases to see me but I felt a little nervous because, his all relatives were unknown to me and a new place is new experience for all. Long time I stayed there. I passed my time by gossiping. But at that time my friend Hasib phoned me and told they started their journey back to Dhaka without me because of my late come. When I heard the news I felt very worried and upset and started thinking how I will come back to Dhaka because I had not enough money and my money bag was to my friend Hasib.
