Description

Dylan!

You won't believe this.

I'm trapped on a tour bus with my relatives.

And other crazy people.

And two overly chipper tour guides.

It's some crazy plan to get us to bond while seeing the USA.

Wish u were here instead.

Ariel

Ariel Flack never thought she'd be stuck on a bus writing postcards to Dylan, her friend-finally-turned-boyfriend. But as the Badlands roll by at five miles an hour, Ariel begins to learn that sometimes, you just have to go where the road takes you—even if the tour bus won't.
