Writing – Travel Advice

Letter writing

Hi MJ,

I’m about to take one of my longest trips ever! I’m flying from Vancouver to Mumbai, India for the dance competition. I can’t believe I’m going! 
That’s almost half-way around the world so, of course, I have to make a couple of stop-overs. First, I have to stop in Toronto Pearson Airport for about 5 hours, then again at Heathrow Airport for about 12 hours! I’ll finally arrive in India almost 3 days after my departure date. 
But I’m going to be spending almost 17 hours at airports! You know I don’t have a lot of money to go and sleep at a hotel. Also, for this dance competition, I want to be as physically ready and not mess up my muscles. What should I do at the airport for 17 hours? 
I’d love to hear your ideas and suggestions so I’m prepared to dance and win this competition! 

Full of excitement
