Journey By Boat

 Journey by boat is really a pleasant journey. The biggest advantage of it is that it costs very few money and also comfortable. So many people make their journey by boat in exchanging of money. In our country steersmen move their boats in almost every ponds, rivers and oceans. I have a memory of journey by boat. Then I was a child and lived in a colony at Kawla ( A place of Dhaka ). At that time, houses were not such built at Kawla. Many landed properties were canals. There was a big canal between our colony and my aunt’s house ( Father’s Sister ). Even the canal is still in there but it becomes small. The canal is filled with water hyacinth and various types of fishes are cultivated there in it. The boats are driven through the open place of water hyacinth. My father took me to my aunt’s house by boat. In the first time, I felt very aafraid because when we put our legs over the stern of boat, it started shaking because of the weight of our body over the boat. I was fear of falling into the water. But my father protected me. Slowly my fear was removed. After getting up of the boat, we sat on the deck. when all the passengers got up, the steersman started driving the boat. I stayed looking at the water through my whole journey. Suddenly I saw some fishes jumping in the water. And I tried to catch them but unfortunately I could not catch only one. When I saw the fishes playing, I thought the canal was an aquarium. After a long time we reached our destination. I really enjoyed the journey.
