Who are Kara and Nate?!
Watch our documentary here:

Originally from Nashville, Tennessee, we got married 2013 and were super “normal.” I was a teacher and Nate started a small printing business from the spare bedroom of our apartment. We discovered the world of “travel hacking” & became obsessed. So after 2 years of obsessively saving $35k and over 2 million miles and points, we sold our cars and apartment and left home January 10, 2016 for a “one year” trip around the world. Our goal was to see as many places as possible before we ran out of money and went home to “normal life.” We started this travel vlog to share our experiences with friends and family, but quickly fell in love with this lifestyle and did everything we could to keep going. 4 years later, we achieved our new goal of visiting 100 countries and all 7 continents. We had no plans to slow down, until 2020 forced us to 😉 Which is when we bought a converted van to start exploring our own country for the first time. Van life was a major adjustment and so different than flying every week like we were used to, but we are incredibly thankful to be able to continue doing something we love every day. 😊🎥🌎

    Can’t stand cilantro!😊 can’t understand the hype

  33. Emma Baumbach on May 25, 2023 at 1:12 pm

    Thank you for being the loveliest, most positive people ever. You both inspire me to be more open and positive and worry less. So much love for you both, from Cyprus xoxox

    Also! My boyfriend and I are fulltime travelers in Airbnb and we just have the one big backpack to share plus 2 smaller backpacks, and I bring herbs and spices with us eevvverywheeere. As well as a tin for baking banana bread and our own coffee pot. I ain’t risking an ill-equipped Airbnb.
    Herbs & spices fit pretty well into an ice cream container! Any that are leftover in the giant jars I just empty into an envelope, seal it and then cut a corner for next time!

  34. black ice! 💙 on May 25, 2023 at 1:17 pm

    I live in Lexington, KY and that’s sooooo cool that you all went there!!!! Love y’all! ❤

  40. Neil Towne on May 25, 2023 at 1:20 pm

    is your van a manual?

  45. Neil Towne on May 25, 2023 at 1:24 pm

    Binging Kara and Nate because its been a hot minute! When she says "I don’t think I ever did that" and it transitions to her singing it’s guacamole time, has me laughing so hard!

  46. Jasvm on May 25, 2023 at 1:25 pm

    Regarding to the van, do you have any plans to renovate it?

  47. koriannder on May 25, 2023 at 1:26 pm

    Woohoo! You did Jungle Jim’s!! Please go back and do a 24 hour video. It’s one of my favorite places. It takes us about 1 1/2 hours from where we live, but so worth the drive. There’s so much to see, that a couple hours isn’t enough. ❤️

  48. Joseph Patterson on May 25, 2023 at 1:26 pm
