The best thing about your Hyundai is that it can bring you just about anywhere you could possibly want to go! Whether you’re heading across town or across the country, hitting the road for some time off is sure to be a blast behind the wheel of your favorite vehicle.
In fact, the hardest part of your next adventure is more likely to happen before you even leave; who doesn’t hate packing for a trip? Fortunately, our team loves to travel and has acquired some helpful tips to help you get ready before you set out on your next road trip.
When you’re packing your suitcase, folding things neatly is sure to help you make the most of the space. For your nicer items, though, folding isn’t always ideal. Try rolling up your belt and setting it in the collar of your folded dress shirt. This double-edged idea will keep your collar nicely shaped and will prevent your belt from unfurling along the way.
Of course, modern travelers are likely to bring plenty of gadgets along for the trip. An old glasses case is perfect for keeping your chargers, USB cables, and earbuds in one easy to reach spot, and will also keep them from getting tangled up with the rest of your luggage.
Speaking of your favorite devices, a sealable freezer bag is a good idea before you toss them into your bag. Whether it’s a leaky shampoo bottle in your suitcase or an unexpected storm while you’re carrying your luggage, you’ll be glad your electronics are in a waterproof bag.
Finally, packing a smaller bag and leaving it where it’s easy to reach – think the back seat or on top of your other luggage – is a good idea for items you’re likely to need along the way. This helps to cut down on time spent digging through bigger bags. Must haves like snacks, maps, and wet wipes are great to include in the quick access bag.

At Pohanka Hyundai of Fredericksburg, our staff and our shoppers have something very important in common: we all love to get behind the wheel! Whether it’s exploring local back roads or hitting the open highway, there’s nothing like seeing someplace new.
Of course, the itch to travel doesn’t always end there. From planes and trains to boats and cars, wanderlust often inspires us to seek out new places. Check out these jobs that are perfect for embracing that desire!
This one might seem obvious, but that’s only because it’s such a perfect fit! Document your travels for your own blog, or sell your pieces to a travel website to fund the next leg of your adventure.
Another great choice for travelers is photography. In addition to capturing your journey, you can sell to stock photography sites to replenish your funds. You can also work events like weddings, as long as you plan your route ahead of time. The digital age makes this career much more tangible for those who are always on the go!
From all-inclusive tropical resorts to ski lodges, the hospitality industry has many positions that are open to those with little or no experience, and even offers room and board much of the time. Many of these positions are also seasonal, giving you the perfect timeframe to kick off your next adventure.
Possibly the top choice for hardcore adventurers, the Peace Corp provides a great opportunity to travel the world while making a difference. These volunteer missions do require time commitments, though, so be sure not to dive in without doing your research first!
At the other end of the spectrum, watching over someone else’s home is perfect for housecats who are after a change of pace. Whether it’s around the corner or around the globe, the right environment can be the perfect change of pace.
Whatever vocation you have in mind, there are few things better than finding the perfect job that goes hand-in-hand with your wanderlust!

Pohanka Hyundai is pleased to offer VA Hyundai Sonata shoppers a large selection of new 2011 Sonata models available to purchase with finance rates as low as 1.9% for 48 months. An additional ‘valued owner coupon’ worth $500 is also available. Recently, Kiplinger’s Personal Finance named the 2011 Sonata a best family car.
The Hyundai Sonata has always been a top choice for VA Hyundai shoppers who don’t want to sacrifice safety for style and efficiency.
Sonata is built from the ground up with safety in mind, with a hot stamped ultra-high-strength steel body structure, advanced airbag technology and Electronic Stability Control (ESC), delivering on Hyundai’s commitment to both active and passive safety technology leadership. In 2005, the Sonata was the first popular midsize sedan to standardize ESC– once again every 2011 Sonata has lifesaving ESC as standard equipment. This is important because the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has reported that ESC results in 35 percent fewer single-vehicle crashes and 30 percent fewer single-vehicle fatalities in passenger cars.
A smart choice for VA families, the 2011 Sonata also features a state-of-the-art Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) including Brake Assist and Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD). Sonata features six airbags—including dual front, front seat-mounted side-impact, and front and rear side curtain airbags—along with active front-seat head restraints.
“Hyundai’s Sonata beat out the midsize sedan competition to earn Kiplinger’s Best New Car award this year for an innovative redesign that’s parent and kid-friendly,” said Jessica Anderson, associate editor, Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine. “The turbocharged Sonata SE 2.0T has the most horsepower in the segment and nimble handling for Mom or Dad. The back seat fits two child car seats easily, plus it has decent legroom and cup holders in the rear armrest.”
VA Hyundai Sonata shoppers have their choice of turbo and hybrid versions of the 2011 Sonata. The turbocharged 2011 Sonata 2.0T produces a combination of segment-leading fuel efficiency and power, with an estimated 33 mpg highway rating and 274 horsepower. The Sonata Hybrid is also projected to deliver best-in-class highway fuel economy of 40 mpg, while also offering outstanding city fuel economy of 36 mpg.
VA shoppers who would like to learn more about the Sonata can call 301-760-4409 to schedule a test drive.
