Honda Passport


Hey Darlings! It was another scorcher here in Atlanta and not even the weather could prevent me from heading out to this months Auto Club Lunch & Learn with Honda. As I made my way through Atlanta’s crazy traffic to Victory Sandwich Bar located in Iman Park I was extremely excited to see what Honda has in store for the world.

So what is Victory? Victory made its grand appearance in 2011 as a scrappy little sandwich spot with excellent sliders, an instant-hit ping-pong table, and a wicked sense of humor. Trust me! This by far is one of my best Hidden Gems (Post Coming Soon). It’s trendy yet affordable and then there’s the slushie machine. Yeah you have to wait for the Hidden Gem post. Sorry!



Upon arrival I was immediately in awe with the two Honda Passports that were on display. I’m sure it was the extra cargo on top that immediately caught my eye. This particular Passport is equipped with a roof tent. Like seriously! It’s a freaking tent on top. Ya’ll know my mind was all kinds of wondering because you all know that I absolutely love an adventure. Perhaps that why I have three boys. My two younger sons and I could totally test drive this baby, take a spontaneous road trip and save tons of money on hotel expenses with the roof tent. What about you?

As you can see Honda is serving the automotive industry with their 2019 Honda Passport. I’m sure that your wondering what’s going on with the roof tent. Well you can sleep two maybe three depending on their sizes. I honest could fit my two younger sons and myself in the roof tent. It comes equipped with a memory foam mattress and all you need to do is add your sleeping bags. The weather may be very humid and hot but once it cools down this baby will feel like you have an air conditioner. I don’t know if you’ve ever gone camping luckily for me I have, you will totally appreciate the feeling you get when a fresh summer breeze blows and that morning misty breeze. Trust me its THE BEST.
