Hello Matt, how are you? I'm spending my holiday [US: vacation] at my grandmother's house. She lives by the sea in Vendée. This week, the weather was sunny, so I swam every day! Yesterday, I went to the Puy du Fou theme park. I had a lot of fun! The medieval show was very exciting and I bought you a souvenir! And you? How is your holiday [US: vacation] going? I'm coming home in two weeks. See you soon! Juliette
