Dear Madam, I am writing on behalf of “World Travel” in response to your request for information on holidaying in the Caribbean. A two-week package to the peaceful island of St. Kitts is being offered by our agency for only $ 3.000. This island satisfies all your requirements, as it is quite and has little tourism. In addition, transport is available should you wish to explore other islands in the Caribbean. All travel plans can be arranged through our office. Please contact our agency immediately should you require more information. Your’s faithfully, Jane Douglas Dear Jane, A quick note to help you decide where to hang out over the holidays. Bill and I went to St. Kitts last summer and it was great. It’s a small, quite island that hasn’t been overrun by tourism yet, so you can really get a feel for the local culture. You can hop over to other islands too, because there are bouts leaving St. Kitts every few hours. If St. Kitts is too quite, you can go and party in St. Martin. Happy to give you the number of my travel agent if you’re interested. Give me a ring so we can have a chat about it. Love, Patrica
