Hi guys! I have an imporant task for homework: writing an informal letter about an adventure holiday that I'm am on (we have to make it all up).

Well, I wrote the letter, but I'm not sure if there are any grammar errorsor other mistakes. Would anyone please be so kind and give it a quick check? Thank you!! Emotion: smile

An informal letter (adventure holiday).

Narsaq,
Greenland
20th February

Dear Reelika,

1. How are you? I hope you are doing well. Have you made up your mind about where you would like to go on holiday?

2. As you probably remember, I've always wanted to visit some unusual places. And now, at last, off I went! However, you'd never guess where I've chosen to spend my holiday. Well, it's Greenland! The weather looks spectacular here, especially in the morning. And the mountains are just awe-inspiring!

3. We go mountaineering every other day and take pictures from the top of the mountains! Fortunately, we’ve even seen some beautiful wildlife while riding on snowmobiles. Would you believe that everything is different here? You even need to set up your tent in a special way. It's all very challenging.

4. The people I travel with are incredible. Our guides, Martin and Jonathan know every path in the snow by heart and they are very helpful. Moreover, they share their knowledge and experience with us. However, Maarja complains about the cold every single day and Liisa almost fell into the ice cold water!

5. Well, I have to stop here, because it’s getting late. We plan to move further north tomorrow, so I’ll not be able to stay in touch for a while.

Lots of love,
Angelica

Hi!

I'll give checking it a go :-)

A. "off I went" seems to be in the past past. That is, not now. Maybe you could say "off I've gone". I don't know, are you North American? It makes a difference :-)

B. Do you really need a "!" here?

C. Moreover is very formal. This letter is for a friend, not a university professor. "What's more", "And even better" etc. sound more appropriate

Overall a very nice letter with interesting ideas :-)

Thank you for the help!

I'm actually from Estonia (a small country in northern europe), so English isn't my first language. Emotion: big smile

I've corrected my letter according to your suggestions. Thanks again! ^_^
