Daily IELTS Answer – A Time You Lost Something Important (Band 6.5 – Part 2)
Describe a time when you lost something important
“I remember – about 5 years ago – when I took a trip to San Francisco to go to a dermatology conference / seminar and I rented a car. I went shopping and I left my backpack inside the car in the parking lot. When I returned to the parking lot, my car window was broken and I was shocked because my backpack wasn’t there anymore. Although it was just a few seconds, I was really upset because I had all my documents, my passport, my ID and I had my mobile phone and everything I needed at that time. I had to call the police and ask them to help me with my things. After that, I went to the Brazilian embassy to ask for a new passport, so it was a terrible experience and always when someone leaves some kind of items in the parking lot I always advise them to be more cautious.”
