A road trip needs a few things to be everything you had hoped it would be and more. As we all know a road trip can go from fab to drab pretty quickly so it’s great to have a checklist as you are getting ready. Plus, different types of road trips require different things. For my latest road trip I went from Hollywood to Vegas and my goal was “Soul-ful.”
What is Soulful?
While on the #kiasoulroadies roadtrip I was FINALLY able to stop at Seven Magic Mountains. A super cool quick detour that only took an extra 15 minutes off our track. If you have time you should definitely stop and check out this art installation! Only 10 miles south of Las Vegas sevenmagicmountains #travel #nevada #roadtrip #travelblogger #travelersnotebook
Another thing that you need to add is plenty of cool stops along the journey. Personally, I love hitting up those crazy but weird stops and alwys seeing something I’ve never seen before. On this drive we took a few moments to check out the iconic Seven Magic Mountains. It’s s uper quick detour if you are driving from La to Vegas. It only took an extra 15 minutes off of our track and was sooo worth it. This art installation by internationally renowned Swiss artists Ugo Rondione was sooooo worth the stop. If you are going through the area make sure to take those extra 15 minutes and check it out!
Every Roadie has their crew shirt. You should make your very own Roadie Gear for your trip. For the #KiaSoulRoadies ride we had ours. Want to follow all of the other great influencers on the trip? Check them out:
Yup. You need a person that can laugh, sing super loud, and is willing to stop quickly to catch the perfect picture. Shelley VanWitzenburg was my kick ass driving partner for this program and my stomach muscles still hurt from laughing. She even put up with my music ADD and my horrible singing voice so she wins bonus points for that alone. Make sure you are following her on twitter: @MAGICALSIBLINGS
Yes, you read that right. the ICONIC Kia Soul takes up TWO spots on our list becuase it’s just that great! The Kia Soul is one of the main vehicles you automatically think of when you “Kia”. The 2018 Kia Soul enters its fifth model year as a carryover with minor enhancements. It’s hard adding to an already perfect vehicle. Kia’s “iconic urban passenger vehicle offers a fun, funky and functional approach to everyday driving.” From a quality standpoint, Soul has ranked #1 in the J.D Power Initial Quality Study (IQS)1 in its category for three consecutive years.
With expanding the availability of UVO3 across the model range, adding the innovative infotainment system to the Base Convenience Package as well as to Soul Plus as standard equipment AND pricing starting out at only $16,100 you can see why the Kia Soul has remained a hotspot for Kia and consumers.
Overall, I had a FANTASTIC and Soul-ful experience on the #KiaSoulRoadies road trip and I made memories I’ll cherish for a lifetime. So if you are looking for a Soul-ful trip of your own just follow these tips and you’ll be good to go!
