Hey! I'm Emily - a NC based outdoor lover whose goal is to share enjoyable movement and free fitness spots, pet-friendly adventure spots, and highlight small businesses both near and far that are worth visiting. I spent 4 years in Asia as a child and since then have traveled to 38 countries and 33 states, so I'm generally more comfortable traveling than staying at home.
About 2 years ago, I decided to combine two of my biggest passions (travel and wellness) to create my blog, The Planking Traveler. Over the years, many of my trips have been ruined by my own sickness because I would throw “healthy” out the window once I left for vacation. Though everyone needs some time to indulge, I realized that being healthy is a lifestyle to embrace and not something to abandon while on the go.
I love sharing about fitness and health - this post of mine is currently ranking near the top of page 1 on Google: https://theplankingtraveler.com/2019/01/03/fitness-motivation-getting-paid-to-be-active-a-review-of-the-stepbet-app/
A few of my other featured articles on travel and health:
I enjoy collaborating with brands, fellow bloggers, and small businesses who share my focus on healthy living and healthy travel, optimal nutrition, and non-toxic products. I am open to working with tourism boards, hotels, brands, and small businesses and can offer a number of different promotional packages tailored to meet the individual needs of you or your client. My media kit is available upon request.

The perfect spot to celebrate the first weekend of Fall 🦙🍁🍷 It's a lovely place with plenty of beautiful seating areas outdoors and not far outside of Winston Salem. You get a gorgeous view of Pilot Mountain in the distance. There are so many adorable llamas and some new babies too! Make sure you say hello to the ponies too. We loved their peach wine which you can take with you as you walk around to visit the llamas. We hope to come back to do one of their Saturday hikes with the llamas soon!! #divinellamas #llamas #vineyardsofnc #triadnc #letsguide #hellofall #celebratefall #winery #nchiddengems
Fitness Tonight I tried a recipe that Mary of PaleoLove Company shared with me and it was too delicious not to share. Rinse okra and place in bowl with beaten egg, coat wellIn either separate bowl or a large bag, whisk or shake almond flour, tapioca flour, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, ground pepper and salt. Place coated okra on baking sheet and spray with olive oil or coconut oil.

Go for a hike at a local park or trail Bring some homemade trail mix along for the hike! If you access Groupon via my favorite site (TopCashback), you will save even more since you can get at least 5% cash back that way and Groupon often runs extra discounts on restaurant deals. Bubble tea is usually $3-$4 per person and there are a ton of flavors to choose from. Many places that serve bubble tea have lounges where you can relax and play board games together.
Today is World Gratitude Day 🌸🙌 I know it's been a difficult year, but let's pause to consider something good that has come out of 2020 by playing the alphabet gratitude game. I'll start by listing something beginning with an A and if you're inclined to join in, continue on until we get to Z. Deal? Deal! 😊 #worldgratitudeday #attitudeofgratitude #givethanks #gratefulthankfulblessed
Walmart, Target, Best Buy, and Chewy are all offering major sales to coincide with Prime Day, so before you make that Amazon purchase, compare prices to see where you will get the best deal (along with the best cashback rate – use cashbackmonitor to track this). When you shop at AmazonSmile, you’ll find the exact same prices and selection as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to your favorite charitable organization. Before They Expire Many Prime deals will go quickly, so if you don’t have the time to be scrolling all day or setting yourself a timer, download the Amazon mobile app and turn on the app notifications so you won’t miss out on anything! One that stands out is $70 off the Fire 10 Tablet and you still have until 11:59 pm PT on 10/12 to take advantage of the spend $10 at a small business offer to get a $10 credit to use on Prime Day.
If you like quirky and creepy roadside attractions, be sure to stop by Fort Apache in Supply, NC. Though you can't currently go in the gates due to COVID, as you can see from our photos, there is plenty to see outside. So many weird things, the Breaking Bad Winnebago, and tons of toilets 😅 American Pickers have been to this spot! #fortapache #dalevarnam #supplync #offthebeatenpath #ncsightsandsounds #letsguide #visitnc #nccoast #roadsideattractions #hiddengems #oddattractions #atlasobscura
Never is that more apparent than when it’s elusive and you just can’t seem to get a good night’s rest. The past few months I have been waking up multiple times each night and feeling pretty drained without being able to get good quality sleep. I’ve tried various natural sleep aids without much success, but finally landed on tart cherry juice. Have you tried tart cherry juice?
