Band 8.5 letter sample

Dear John and Dave,

Trust you guys are doing great. Thank you for sending me the photos of my trip. I just received the email.

I had an amazing time with both of you. Thanks a ton for such an awesome vacation. This was one of the most memorable holidays I’ve had in my lifetime. I wanted to write earlier, however, I had been struggling to regain momentum at work. It was so hard to get back to my regular routine after the vacation. I really wish I could spend some more time there.

I would like to invite both of you to visit India. Stay with me at my place and I can take you around to some of the famous places here like the Taj Mahal in Agra known as the seventh wonder of the world. We can plan a nice itinerary based on how much time you have.

Would love to see you guys soon. Thanks again for such a great time together.

Best regards,
