Dear Anna,

I hope this letter finds you in good health. Last month when I flew into your city, I have never imagined that this exhausted trip would turned to one of the most memorable trip which I had ever and all of this just because seen you in hotel. It was like a miracle that I saw you that day; I felt my heart stopped beating for a second.

Since I am a lucky person my company is going to send me to another business trip in your city. I have already booked a flight and my arrival date would be on 22th of June around 6pm. I am supposed to be there for a whole week. However, I should attend to an important conference which will take me busy for 2-3 days.

I think it would be great if we meet each other on weekend and have launch together. Plus, I will be glad to see you every night at my hotel too.

I cannot wait to see you,
