I went to Haridwar & Rishikesh a few months back (ago). I likeenjoyed the whole trip. We (my husband, my son and I) went by car.

We started our journey at around 7:00 am in the morning, we drived drove a for 10 mins distance then when we realized that we forgot to bring water. So,then we again went back to picked up some water bottles. We had lunch at a dhaba and the food was really testy. We relaxed/stayed there for 20 mins. Then we started towards for Haridwar. We reached got there at 7:00pm. We didn't stoped there but continued we went to Rishikesh. When we were nearby close to Rishikesh the weather was really pleasant. It seemed like as if the clouds were coming down to touch me. The climate was very nice.

Tip #1: We always say "a few..._____". So, a few people, a few candies, a few hours later etc.

Tip #2: You can say 7:00am or 7:00 in the morning, but you don't need to say both. Choose one or the other.

Tip #3: We drove for 10 minutes. You don't need to mention distance. We assume that you are refering to the distance in terms of time.

Tip #4: Make sure to use capitals at the beginnings of your sentences.
