Dear Roger, I was pleased to be invited to visit you in Canada, so I’m writing to ask you for some information to prepare myself properly. When visiting someone, most people use to buy a gift for his family, and unfortunately, I don’t know your family, so I wonder if you could give me any idea of a good thing to buy for your similar. I am thinking to find some interesting decorations not only for the kitchen but
for the bedrooms, what do you think? Another important thing that could be trouble is regarding the clothes I should bring with me during the period in Canada.
I have noticed that during the summer the climate is quite hot, I am not sure if you are preparing some activities to do during my trip. Honestly, would be amazing to walk through the forest or enjoy a river. I am sure you will present me with the best places to have a meal, but I must advise you that I am seafood-allergic, so I would like to take some information about what kind of food I am going to eat. I am looking forward to your answer. Hugs, Franklin
