What is your favourite way of getting around? Describe it and explain why it is your favourite means of transportation.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My favourite way of getting around is my motorbike. I can use my motorbike for going to school or college, attending office or business, shopping or socializing and numerous daily activities. The life has become very fast and time is extremely scarce. We have to cope with the work and the business for which a motorbike is a great help. Motorbike is compact and less expensive because it consumes less gasoline (Petrol). It emits less exhaust gas and heat as compared to three and four wheelers. This helps in conservation of resources and protects environment from pollution and global warming. Hence motorbike is my favourite means of transportation.

My country side village Chandod is on the bank of holy river Narmada.

The visitors shall have a privilege to visit the famous temples with ancient sculpture and have a holy dip in the river Narmada. Also the visitors shall have an opportunity to taste Indian village food that has a unique taste. Visitors may have a chance to have a bullock-cart ride and move through the cultivated farms and watch scenery. The kind of hospitality the visitors shall get in this village would be second to none in the world and he or she would be delighted to receive such a warm welcome.

Because of these qualities in my wife I would particularly like to go to her in the event of any problem. Needless to say discussing personal problems with strangers can be disastrous.
