On a Saturday morning, I had to move my belongings to my new hostel. I walked to the bus station with my baggage. Unfortunately, one of the wheels of my suitcase was broken, so I was restrained from walking fast.

Eventually, I reached the bus station. I had to wait long for the arrival of the bus, so I started feeling hot and thirsty. I wanted to buy a bottle of juice, but I did not want to miss the bus. Hence, I dropped the idea.

After a while, I saw the bus coming. I was neither excited nor happy, because I had to carry the heavy baggage onto the bus. Mid-way, I forgot which station to get off. When I finally got off the bus, I discovered that I had alighted at the wrong bus stop.

I did not know how to get to the hostel, so I called my landlord. My landlord gave me directions, but I still did not know how to go to the hostel.

In the end, my landlord came to where I was, and he brought me to my new hostel. I felt sorry for him and I felt that the day was a difficult day because I had faced so many problems.
