Context: I have started to write a blog post about my recent road trip.
Difficulty: I was desperate to go for a trip and in that desperation, the planning was not up to the mark. My previous trip also began the same way. To highlight this fact, in the 'Prelude' section, I wrote a sentence as below:
Alike my previous trip, this one was chalked out of desperation.
- My proof-reader thinks that 'Alike' is not the right word, should be 'Akin'
- I thought of using 'Similar' but that doesn't seem right either
