Vacation is Poppy's favorite activity. She does it on a whim, cheap or expensive, she writes about it, magazine and blog, and now she can't figure out why it's "just not the same".
Once a year her best friend, Alex, and her picked a low-budget, out-of-the-ordinary trip. Spontaneous and whacky are the the best ways to describe everything they do, yet two years ago the trips together ended and they haven't talked. No discussion of why they ended.
Poppy lives in New York and writes for a travel magazine and considers it her dream job. Although, she's lost a bit of that carefree, happy attitude that exotic places have brought her.
Alex lives in her hometown in Ohio. He's bookish, quiet, and a teacher at their old high school.
She misses her best friend and takes the chance to send a text, hoping he'll reply positively. Maybe they could try one of those fantastic, cheap vacations like old times.
The question is: How can they jump into another vacation without talking so long and rekindle the missing thread of their happiness in life?
The key is what happened two years ago. If they discover the problem, can they enrich their relationship and take it another step? I hope so!
