How are you doing? I hope everything is fine, including your work.
I wanted to say goodbye to you as I will be leaving for Australia next week. I will be staying there two months for a short course which my company has sent me to attend. As such, I will miss our monthly get-together with friends until I get back. It would have been great to be travelling to Australia with you! I remember one conversation we had when we were still in college. We really wished to visit Australia together. I will write to you every week to share with you the places I have visited and how true our dreams about the place are.
Please share the news to the others when you meet this month.
