Dear _________,

Answer – 

Dear John,

I’m writing to tell you the good and bad things and give you some advice about your first ever camping holiday that you’re planning to go on in the coming summer.

I think you’re going to love this holiday because you like adventure and thrill. This type of holiday is full of such experiences, and believe me, you won’t be let down. Also, this would be a great chance to escape from your monotonous routine and chill out, as you’ll see different kinds of birds, animals and flowers you can’t see in the city.

The main issue with such places is that the weather is so unpredictable, like one moment it may be sunny and the next thing you, it is raining torrents, so keep waterproof clothes and shoes with you, and a tent to sleep in at night. Another problem could be wild animals. Since you’ll be staying in a forest, you may likely encounter a predator, so keep some protection with you and try to stay as far as possible from them.

I’d like to go on this holiday with you, but unfortunately, I can’t because I’ve already planned with my family to go abroad and booked tickets in advance as well. However, if you made such a plan again in the future, I’d surely be a part of it. As for now, I wish you all the best for this holiday, and I’m sure, you’ll have a blast.

Let me know if you’ve any other queries.

Keep in touch,
