雅思口语part2话题卡：Describe an occasion when you lost your way 迷路的经历
一般来说，在以下几种情况中更容易发生迷路：1. 去了一个不熟悉的地方，周围的道路、建筑物都不认识，无法作为标志物，导致迷路；2. 去了一个手机导航不怎么显示的地方，如小区内部或者某些最近一直在修路的地方，导致迷路；3. 在野外旅游时，没有按照规划路线前进，而是选择自己探索，导致迷路。大家随便算一个场景进行拓展即可。
Describe an occasion when you lost your way
You should say
Where you were
How you felt
And explain how you found your way
The experience I am going to tell you happened three months ago. Back then, I just survived the intensive revision plan and finished all my final exams, which meant I could finally take a breath and enjoy my holiday. So I decided to travel to Luoyang, a nearby city, well-known for the peony and its long history, to relax.
As it is not far away from home, I chose to drive myself to get there. And my father, who had been there several times, told me “do not follow the navigation on your cellphone. I know a shortcut which would save a lot of time”. So I followed his instruction and ignored the constant hints from the electronic map.
After half an hour’s drive, I found the information he gave was wrong. There was supposed to be a small road stretching out when I turned off from the main road, however, there was nothing but a concrete wall in front of me when I did so. Now, I was in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by a large area of crops. Luckily, the navigation service was still online. With its help, I successfully found the way back.
I called my father to ask about the situation. He said it had been a year since he last went there. So there must have been some changes he did not know. After that, whenever people’s suggestion goes against the electronic map, I would always choose to believe the latter one.
