I have just finished reading the last letter you wrote to me. There you wanted to know about my last trip to Shimla with my parents. In this letter, I would like to share my experience of this Shimla trip.
Last summer vacation, my parents planned a trip to Himachal Pradesh. This time we planned to visit the capital city of Himachal, Shimla. This was my first visit to Shimla. Before this, I have travelled to various hill stations, but after visiting Shimla, I have to say, this city is altogether different. Generally, for hill stations, we see that cities are more or less isolated and only developed based on tourism. But for Shimla, this is not the case. All kinds of world-class facilities are available there. Most importantly the scenic beauty is amazing. It can’t be explained to someone in words, who hasn't visited this place. The heritage buildings, the wonderful nature will help you have an overwhelming experience.
I want to suggest you visit Shimla if you get a chance. I can guarantee, the city will never fail to surprise you.

It’s been a long time since I haven’t received a letter from you. How are you doing nowadays? In the last puja vacation, I travelled to Shimla with my parents for a 5 days trip. In this letter, I want to share that experience with you.
It has been a long time that I haven’t travelled to any hill station. That’s why in the last puja vacation, I requested my parents to plan a trip to any hill destination. To my surprise, they planned a trip to the Capital city of Himachal Pradesh, Shimla. We travelled to Shimla by train and bus. First, we reached Delhi by Rajdhani Express and then took a bus to Shimla from there. The overnight bus journey was an amazing experience itself. After reaching Shimla the next morning, I was amazed by the beauty of the city. It seemed quite like a European city to me. The weather, the terrain and most importantly the amazing old European architecture surprised me to a great extent.
I want to visit Shimla once again in future. What do you think of this trip? Please let me know in your next letter.
Your loving friend

In your last letter, you asked me about my experience of the last visit to Shimla. Through this letter, I want to share that experience with you.
It was basically not a typical tour. I went to Shimla to attend a Tennis tournament as a junior player. My parents also went with me. It was a 3 days tournament at the Gurudarbar Stadium of Shimla. I played two matches there and the result was 1-1. After the end of the tournament, we went for a city tour of Shimla. It seemed like an amazing historical city to me. The old British Tennis court attracted me the most. Apart from that, the heritage architecture of the city was amazing. The old governor house, the Churches, Monasteries, etc were very beautiful. And the beauty of nature was overwhelming. The trees, wind, clouds, even the sky seemed altogether different to me.
I want to visit Shimla once more just for travel purposes. Would you like to go with me? Let me know in your next letter.

You know, I recently went to Shimla to attend a marriage ceremony of one of my relatives. It was such a beautiful city. I am too eager to share my experience with you in this letter.
It was one of my cousins’ weddings. When we were invited to her wedding, I was just waiting to visit the famous hill city. I used to see many pictures of the city but never visited there. After reaching Shimla, I was totally shocked by the beauty. You can’t believe how beautiful it was! This hilly terrain is quite different from the other hill stations I visited. On the second day of my visit, I witnessed amazing snowfall in the city. It felt like white heaven. All the streets, trees and houses were covered with snow. We even had a bonfire evening after the marriage day. After spending a week in the city, we came back home.
Such an amazing experience it was. What do you think of Shimla? Let me know in your next letter.
