Originally from Nashville, Tennessee, we got married June 2013 and quickly caught the #travel bug! We started “travel hacking” & finally decided we wanted to travel for one year. After 2 years of saving $ and over 2 million miles and points, we sold our cars and apartment and left home January 10, 2016. We started this #travelvlog to share our experiences with friends and family, then decided we really liked vlogging and traveling! After achieving our new goal of 100 countries before 2020 and all 7 continents, we have no plans to slow down anytime soon, and we are incredibly thankful to do something we love every day. 🙂

  1. It seems like quite a few people want us to be upset with the couple who sold us the van. Sure, we would rather not have to deal with these issues, but we are grateful that we didn’t have to build it from scratch ourselves, and we are still happy with our purchase.

    The people who sold us the van told us they have been getting angry messages. This is completely unnecessary. Please feel free to express your opinions here in the comments…We appreciate you watching out for us, but we ask that you please do not contact the original owners on our behalf.

  2. I really love watching you guys, you definitely made my quarantine easier. However, all the time I watch your videos since you have got the van I keep noticing that your relationship is a bit … sexist let’s say; I always see Kara cooking, washing, cleaning things, following her beloved husband wherever he wants to be and editing like crazy, but I never see Nate participating in all those things and, I am so sorry, but for one thing he did he didn’t even do it right…
    Million people are watching you… let’s be two for everything!
    Sorry if the message it’s not well taken 😕

  3. In the last two weeks I’ve watched 97 of your videos (over 19 hours worth) and just wanted to say thank you for taking the time to make them. I’ve learned quite a bit and enjoyed watching you two enjoy your travels. Keep up the good work and best of luck in your current and future life chapters.
