KIA Motors of America
sent us a surprise package in the mail to start off what, little did we know, would be an amazing trip to San Diego, California! Upon opening the massive boxes we found sitting on our porch, we were pleasantly surprised to find a pair of Ogio luggage bags, with a custom Kia engraving that read "Rockin' Kia" set on a background of a guitar pick. The invite that was also in the box was full of information about the upcoming trip, and full of rock and roll references. We didn't know what to expect, but we knew it would be an amazing time!
welcomed us to the hotel by presenting us each with a Harman Kardon Onyx Mini Portable Bluetooth Speaker. They have partnered with Kia and offer optional stereo systems inside the Kia Optima and Kia Sportage, to provide crisp custom clarity built specifically for these models! And not to mention they hosted a video competition that Kalli and I actually won! As the grand prize winners, we were presented with the Harman Kardon Go + Play Bluetooth speaker!
The Hard Rock Hotel in San Diego California
is AMAZING! The San Diego location especially shows off lots of signed guitars, clothing, and handwritten lyrics written by many musicians that got their start in San Diego. There are more musicians that got their start in San Diego than I realized, such as Eric Clapton, Eddie Vedder, Jewel, Ace Frehley, Janet Jackson, Jim Morrison, and Steve Perry. The room itself was very nice, and as you can see in the video, offered comfort, and balcony where we could enjoy the ocean air, and an overlaying rock theme that made you feel like VIP at all times. The best part about the hotel is that you can ask the front desk to bring a guitar to your room! With choices between Fender Stratocaster, Fender Telecaster, acoustic guitars, and Fender jazz and P-bass, it could be hard to make up your mind on how exactly you wanted to rock your room! In the heart of the Gaslamp District, there are many greats sights and restaurants to check out, but the food at the actual hotel is also top notch!
The 2017 Kia Niro
It was a pleasure getting to drive this new Kia model crossover hybrid beast! Completely designed and built in Irvine, California, and designed to look practical and normal, not like "just another hybrid", the Niro gets up to 50 mpg combined and even hit a record 76 mpg! This car is smart, with lane assist technology, and sporty, with a cool sport mode that you can really "feel" when it kicks in!
We finished out the trip with some live karaoke! The band was amazing and after each invitee performed, they were rewarded with a pair of JBL Bluetooth in ear headphones. I sang Tribute, by Tenacious D, and then sang Play that Funky Music, White Boy, and Kalli joined me, along with a few other new friends! And we ended the night with a group effort, singing Don't Stop Believin', by Journey!
Kia and Harman Kardon really know how to throw a party, and I can't wait until the next one!
