Band 8 Letter, A friend of yours

Dear Sierra,

I hope you are doing splendidly well and looking forward to enjoying your summer holidays. I am very delighted to receive your letter after a very long time and happy to know that you are planning on a camp expedition for the very first time.

As an experienced camper, I would recommend you to visit the central province of Sri Lanka, such as Kandy or Ella as these places are quite ideal for camping during the summer. Besides, these places are rich in greenery and its scenic beauty could relieve you from the stress you are going through at the workplace. Moreover, you can spot various wildlife that you would be interested to take photos for your Facebook photography page.

However, I must also mention the challenges faced during camping. Nature’s weather conditions are unpredictable, so it is best to be prepared for all circumstances. Also, you may come across bug bites which is quite normal during this journey.

If it is alright with you, I am pleased to accompany you on your camping as it has been a long time we met since our graduation.

I await to hear from you.

Best regards,
