model answer:

Dear Tina,

I have just returned home from very exciting trip to Amsterdam in Holland. I went there with my family for a long weekend. We stayed in a pretty little hotel in the centre of the city, which was terribly convenient.

While we were there we visited the Van Gogh Museum. Van Gogh is a well-known painter and the museum was a memorable experience. It has many of Van Gogh’s paintings on display and some of them are incredibly moving. I don’t think Van Gogh was always happy and this shows in his work. I spent ages looking at the paintings and I bought some very attractive prints before I left.

When Ii got home, I found some unusual frames for the prints and now they are hanging on my bedroom wall. I think Amsterdam will always be a special place for me.
