Write to a magazine called The explorer arguing for or against expeditions to dangerous places. 27 marks. 5 Person Road etc. To Whom It May Concern: I am writing about my concern towards expeditions to dangerous places. We all know what the famous magazine; 'The Explorer' conveys towards dangerous places. However, there are many reasons that you, behind the magazine should mention about visiting dangerous places in your next issue. Firstly, going to dangerous places, is very self-explanatory; risking your lives by going to these places.
