Dear Dave,

How are you? How’s life in Sydney?
I’ve got some news. Do you remember I told you I might be coming to Australia on business? Well, today my boss told me I’m attending a conference for the company in November. It’s in Hawthorn, Melbourne.

I’m flying from London to Melbourne via Bangkok, arriving in Melbourne on 15 November. I’m spending three days there at the conference and then I’m coming to Sydney for meetings on Thursday and Friday. After the weekend, I’m working in our local office for two days.

By the way, I’m staying at the Hilton in Sydney and I’m flying back to the UK on 25 November. So that means quite a lot of free time in the city! Are you going to be around then? It would be great to see you. Email me soon.

Love
Julie
