you're on 

I'm an adventurous introvert from Vancouver, Washington who lives on sleep + "me time." I'm a lover of lifting weights, dinosaurs, real talk and traveling with my husband. I am here to help you move better, lift more, bust the myths of the fitness industry, and inspire you to love the process.

Hey you,

Dallas was our starting and ending point for a three week road trip through Texas in December. Thus, my first note is that Dallas is COLD in relation to other areas of Texas this time of year. Pack layers, and prepare for 30-65 degree weather. 3-7 days would be plenty here, depending on what it […]

San Antonio is largely a suburb but it has no shortage of character. There are definitely a few must do’s and see’s. And that’s what I plan to give you today, in this post. A central location to San Antonio is the River Walk. And we suggest you either stay near this, or in “south […]

The Alamo in San Antonio Texas by Annie Miller

If we’re being honest, we came to Austin to eat our way around the city. But there is TONS to do in and around Austin. First up, let’s talk accommodations. Austin is a big city. You can find a wide array of places to stay at differing price points. They even have hostels. We stayed […]

Annie Miller in Austin, TX

Two things Texas has plenty of are roads and land. It’s the perfect place for a little U.S. getaway road trip. We rented our car from Dollar at the airport. Choosing the “mystery car” saved us $500.00 on the rental. We got a small Nissan and then they upgraded us for free to Nissan Sentra. […]

Texas road trip must knows by Annie Miller

Hakone is a small mountain town relatively close to Mt. Fuji. I imagine most tourists come here for the Fuji Hakone National Park and viewing pleasures of Mt. Fuji herself. This was the LAST STOP in our 21 day road trip through Japan. There is also tons to do and see near Hakone, so we […]

One comes to Nara for the bowing deer. We had April showers throughout our entire stay; but Nara’s beauty still pulled through. Full on disclaimer – Nara was our second to last location on a 21 day road trip through Japan. We were tired. But also, it was April 2020 and shops and restaurants were […]

Bowing deer in Nara, Japan by Annie Miller

The drive from Hiroshima to Nara could have been even more eventful than it was. After two days in Hiroshima, we headed southeast towards Ehime, Kawaga and Tokushima, but we just didn’t have enough time. We only made two stops, but they were JAM PACKED with goodness: Kousanji Temples, cave, The Hill of Hope marble […]

Annie Miller explores the Kousanji Temples

Hiroshima is worth the hype. Honestly, is there anywhere in Japan that’s not worth the hype? We think not. Not going to lie, visiting Hiroshima as an American was a bit eerie…for, hopefully, obvious reasons. We didn’t get a chance to go inside the Museum because it was closed, but did visit the Atomic Dome, […]

Exploring Hiroshima with Annie Miller

This post is the epitome of WHY we chose to road trip through Japan. There is so much to see in between the main cities and attractions. Today’s post covers our stops in Osaka and Kobe on our leg from Kyoto to Hiroshima during our 21 day road trip. This drive took a solid day […]
