Letter of Recommendation
A friend of yours is going on holiday in winter and has asked you to recommend a destination.
Write a letter to your friend and recommend a good place for a holiday in winter. You have visited this place before. Say where you went, where you stayed, what the weather is like, what you can do
there and what the food was like.
You should write at least 100 words.
You do NOT need to write your own address. Begin your letter as follows:
Thanks for your letter, asking me to give you recommendations about a good winter holiday resort. I‛m glad you are well and rejoice over your decision to spend at least this winter not staying at home, So, if you‛re thinking of going on holiday to recreate and have a lot of impressions, I can certainly recommend one destination for you. I went one year to a place called the Carpathians in the west of Ukraine. It‛s quite a long trip to get there as it‛s rather a hilly road, but it‛s worth it.
There are a number of places to stay. There is a wide range of hotels: the tremendously expensive hotels in the centre and cosy cheap ones just outside the area. We stayed at the Blue Waters Hotel on the hill in the suburbs, but I know you and your family are comfort — minded, so you might prefer the option in the centre with all modern conveniences.
There is a lot to do but it‛s a bit dependent on the weather. More often the weather is winter-like: snowy, frosty and sunny. There are a lot of ski slopes for both just the amateurs and professional skiers, a skate rink, hills for sledging, cable cars and there are fantastic low hills nearby for walking in amazing winter scenery, when all the trees and bushes are covered with hoar frost. If it‛s wet or drizzling, there are a lot of small cafes, ethnic restaurants and others. Take some board games!
The food is typical Ukrainian in the hotels but some of the European specialities are fantastic.
Anyway, I‛ve got to go out now and do some shopping. Write again if you need any more information.
