Family Hiking for Fun and Fitness

Are you looking for safe and adventurous activities while school is out due to the Coronavirus? Well, go hiking with the kids to keep the body physically engaged and the lungs full of fresh oxygen during these challenging times. Thankfully, young vegan athlete Aya and her best friend Abby love exercising as they have put in 2 hours daily playing volleyball, basketball, soccer, and strength training in Fit Fathers private facility. Hiking is icing on the cake for the sports fanatic pair. Stay blessed and continue to eat clean to strengthen the immune system while burning daily calories.

2020 Hyundai Sonata Limited: Beyond the Scope

An Arizona test drive for East Coast visitors like myself is always a welcoming reception during the winter Holiday season. Add in drive time behind the wheel of one of Hyundai’s new and innovative automobiles to navigate through town in, and the ante is upped trifold. Yes, the FWD 2020 Hyundai Sonata is smarter, assertive, and far more stunning than the model it replaces.

Lining up alongside the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, and Nissan Altima in competition, the Sonata is better suited to draw attention with its modern looks in addition to the value it has offered for so long. Hyundai lowered and widened the vehicle, increased its wheelbase, enlarged the wheel wells, enhanced the aerodynamics, and shortened the overhangs for an aggressive 3-dimensional look. But the main design focus was centered on the front fascia, which leaves the strongest impression on viewers.

I typically jet set to the island of “natural mystic” a few times annually to release old, negative energy and inhale positive vibrations with family and friends. Plus, it’s a must that my belly maintains satiation from Rastafarian iTal or spiced vegan grub to enhance bodily function. And no matter where I venture to my spiritual leader, Robert Nesta Marley, is always by my side, such as at the S Hotel Jamaica where I settled in for a few fantastic evenings during a short excursion.
