Subject: Re: Bucket list for our winter school exchange

Hi Liam,

Thanks for your email. It’s great to have a British pen friend!
I can’t wait to see you this winter for our school exchange. My family is pretty cool and we’ll have a great time in the Alps.

It’s a great idea to have a bucket list of the things we want to do so that we don’t miss out. First, I agree, let’s eat as much French food as possible. French food is wicked! We have loads of cheese here, and our hot chocolate is to die - for... However, unlike you, I’d prefer to go snowshoeing than snowboarding - too dangerous, sorry! FYI, I am not the sporty type… and I hate wearing ski boots. BTW, have you got your own winter kit? I think we can keep ice-skating and dog sledding on the list. However, I’d prefer not to go ice-fishing, in case the ice breaks! I am sorry mate if you’d prefer to do more adventurous activities, but there will be loads to do. I’d like to build an igloo and a gigantic snowman. We could also have snowball fights with my siblings! I’m really looking forward to meeting you in person!

See you, Nicolas
