Originally from Nashville, Tennessee, we got married June 2013 and quickly caught the #travel bug! We started “travel hacking” & finally decided we wanted to go 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, and we didn’t want to stop after just one year! After achieving our new goal of 100 countries and then all 7 continents (check out our documentary here:, we had no plans to slow down, until 2020 decided to force us to ;) which is when we bought a converted Sprinter van to start exploring our own country for the first time. #Vanlife 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. 😊🎥🌎


  • You're so good with practical things. We find it challenging to change a washer 🤔

  • Can I just order the mug. Haven't done a lot of travel yet, only vicariously through your videos 😁😁😁

  • Looooove your grandpa! He reminds me of a couple of my uncles.

  • Kara: I'm the same age as you and female and I would just like to warn you to be ready to rest for 24-48 hours after your 2nd pfizer dose. I just had mine and I was out of commission with flu-like symptoms for 24 hours straight. The side effects are much more intense for young adult women, but its 100% worth it instead of getting the actual disease. My flu like symptoms started about 6 hours after my end dose and I was 80% as messed up as you would be with the actual flu. Stomach cramps, severe body aches, low fever, very exhausted. You'll be okay though, I'm so excited to be vaccinated and so happy you are too💕💕💕💕💕

  • I liked your grandpa so much. He is an example of what real men used to be. He reminds me of my own grandpa. Except my grandpa wouldn't say no to the vaccine. He would have said HELL NO!!!!!

  • me, looking at that first map, as someone that just got back from a ring road trip around iceland................... guys, you need to go ASAP. we had the whole place to ourselves! there were 2 other cars in the parking lot when we visited skogafoss, for example. the process to get in was easy enough, and getting a PCR test in iceland to return to the US was very simple as well. i REALLY want to see this video!!

  • My mum got her vaccine and it went wrong and she had blood dripping down her arm.

  • also you could try and put magnets at the back of your sliding drawers, one on the back of the drawer and one on the back wall of the cupboard, so when you close the drawer the magnets hold the drawer closed but once pulled by hand it releases - its not a stand alone cure but it will help keep your drawers closed in addition to your existing measures.

  • instead of avoiding -4 think about passive heating, insulation and also some sort of drainage that will revert the residual water from the tap back into the holding tank, an empty pipe cant burst from expanding water/ice.

  • haven’t watched u guys in what feels like ages! nice to be back again

  • I hate injections I usually sing la la la or recite a nursery rhyme

  • Watching your vlogs during this your work ...thank you..lots of love from INDIA ❤️😊

  • Wow, I just, now, watched this video... and it’s 10:29pm PT May 9th... oh well

  • This made me miss my grandpa who just recently died 🥺🥺

  • Your grandparents are the sweetest human beings ever!

  • Ah poor Nate, no lollipop. Hopefully on your second shot

  • Getting covid test and getting the results by email is the humans new "paycheck on fridays" hahahhaa 😂

  • when will you add cruise option to Cruise combined with air will be great!

  • Love from India 🇮🇳 Kara & Nate

  • Sorry, your videos were good when you guys were presenting your travel experiences.

  • Would love to see/ meet up in Minnesota. Stay safe

  • “This is 8th grade stuff!” - Nate grandfather. Me finishing up 8th grade math with the Pythagorean theorem. :’)

  • It’s such a blessing to have grandparents in good health 😊

  • @ 18:41, time for pizza!

  • definition of a BETA male

  • This virus isnt that serious y'all really gotta quit living in FEAR stop letting the marxists news media brainwash you morons into thinking COVID is serious its not its a COMPLETE JOKE this whole virus is about money and control

  • The vaccines are experimental they aren't approved by the FDA only approved for emergency use stop being a SHEEP like the rest of these COVIDIOTS

  • That's an experimental synthetic mRNA jab you're getting or got. Good luck.

  • ppl that say there is nothing to do in Nd there dont get out you can go to badland, madora wile your there , see the national parks ( Roosevelt need 2 c) Rock museumby mandan If your coles 2 were i live go 2 kings hill were you can see hundreds of miles into Canada at night . Go c the peace gardens, the Gological center of north America (rugby) ps not the real point guys the closest big town the real point is in a sloe. Go to bismark and see the fossil museum were i think all of them are from ND.

  • Hello from Bucharest, Romania ! You guys are doing a great work ! I wish you all the best !😊😊😊👍

  • Nate.....did she inject you with anything?? we keep watching over and over!

  • The sponsor comments at the end 🤣

  • And with that shot you are now sterile, 🤦🏼‍♂️ I love your videos but christ you should research more before getting poked.

  • I don’t often comment on your videos - but your grandparents are seriously soooo precious!

  • I love how Kara and Nate and Eamon and bec are buds! Please make content together please!

  • Honestly, most interesting and lovely vlog, because with grandpa and grandma ))) like in each of us childhood, when you arrived in the village and spent whole summer there )

  • Can you maps of marathons, half-marathons, hikes, or whatever you do on foot?

  • Can these maps use satellite images?

  • I miss my Papa.

  • Glad to have found your channel! What fun! Subscribed!

  • That was a she?

  • It looked like the needle didn't come outta Kara's arm and now I'm freaked the HECK out

    • yes omg I saw that too! She even took the needle out differently than nate .... just saying. I LOVE THEM BOTH THOUGH

  • Omg, loved your mamaw and papaw. Treasure those times . And the part of every vlog is you waking Kara with coffee there's just something so special and intimate in the act. Love Jen Jen ❤ from Columbus ohio ❤

  • She’s going to reunite with her sorority sister crush, Nate’s gonna checkout the Nashville “alt” scene, find his passion. It’s ok...

  • Love your grandparents. You are so blessed!

  • @ 12:24 - this would not be the SINK part, but the faucet. The sink is where all the water goes once you turn the faucet on!

  • that was some beutiful quality time with your pops

    • @alida flus me or nate?

    • You make me want to fall in love with someone.

  • Hey. Why don’t y’all have Tennessee accents?

  • Sink/faucet, same thing i guess lol

  • Can't you get the vaccine anywhere now?

  • y’all have to visit massachusetts!!

  • Nate’s grandfather looks a lot younger that 87.

  • What camera u use dude its amazing pictures i love Antarctica tour with u🥰😀❣️

  • Blue and orange missed mugs? Av

  • Just because you got the shot doesnt make you immune especially when its you first one...people are still contracting covid who have gotten the shot.

  • Can we take a moment and review the vaccine part??? With Nate, The needle was pulled out before the nurse push the trigger and with Kara the needle disappear inside the Syringe and when the nurse pull out the Syringe there was not a needle... Very weird...

    • @tyler wilde it was tested back when they were trying to make the SARS VAČÇIN3 all the animals died within 3 years of organ failure.. now this is the same shot just tweaked w no animal trials. But alot that have died already HAVE died of ..... you guessed it! Organ failure! So sad that so many people are willing to inject something so experimental into their healthy bodies 😥

    • Hopefully they didn’t get it because that “vaccine” is barely tested and not authentic at all.

  • When will the trend of “rich dipshits driving around in vans to avoid working” end?

  • I’m watching this on my grandma’s birthday. She passed away last year. And I know doing all of this with your grandparents, will be something you cherish foreve r

  • Congrats and respect for getting vaccinated!! Yayyyyy!!!! ☀️🌟😻✨💥💫🌈🌟☀️✨⭐️💥🌈

  • Wow and here in Texas I can just go down to Walmart no appointment and get the shot.

  • You make me want to fall in love with someone.

  • You should go to Iowa 80

  • your grandpa seems so cool!

  • I just can't get enough of U 2. Brilliant , Keep up the good work 😃 Big HELLO from Galway Ireland 🇮🇪

  • Your grandpa is hella cool!😎

  • Hybrid maps look so so cool! 😍😍😍 great job guys!

  • I don't know if anyone else has suggested this but, it looks like it would be awesome if people could add a small photo of their own to the map/picture things. Like if you go to Paris, be able to insert a small pic of yourselves in front of the Eifel tower or eating French bread or something. Just a though...

  • Where is the needle when the nurse pulled out the syringe of Kara's Arm??? 💉👀

  • Lots of love to you guys ❤️❤️

  • An earned lesson which comes with age, “What others think of me is none of my business.” A humble level of confidence is a good thing. I believe you two have both.

  • I just received my K&N mug!

  • Your grandparents are the best!! Love the map idea. Now I just need to plan an epic trip...

  • You guys make me laugh and smile so much!!

  • i am sorry for how your lives are turning out. Seems so desperate. praying for you both.

  • Check out this van Kara and Nate :D

  • Hi

  • You guys should travel in Australia

  • Ur amazing

  • Am I the only one that noticed at 7:26 she sticks the needle in but when she pulls it out, the needle isn't there....

    • Nope, just no one seems to be talking about it....Did you notice that at 7:14 a few frames were edited out that prevents you actually seeing the plunge into Nate's arm (check out his face). And indeed very strange, no needle out of Kara's arm.

  • Definitely glad that you were able to get the vaccine! I'm due for the Pfizer shot very soon - then I'll be back on the road to get back to travel vlogging! It's the new passport 😂

  • I wish my grandparents were still alive. Savour every moment with them! I still have my 95 year old grandmother, but we're across the pacific ocean from each other :(

  • I love you grandparents

  • Your grandparents are a treasure!

  • Omg your grandpa.

  • You still a live

    • I am glad to see that most people are commenting on Grandparents and not the Vax

  • Awesome videos sorry I’m sooo late

  • Can I get a free mug since I ordered a map back in 2020??

  • WOOOOO #House Pfizer!

  • Love the Buc-ees outfit!!

  • I actually applaud you for getting the vaccine. I didn't think you believed in it tbh.

  • WOW! What a great share and video! Too cool to go home for all the right reasons, FAMILY! Your niece was precious and certainly will only have 1 first birthday, and you are so fortunate to still have Grandparents to help out and share life. All the BEST to you, family and friends, hope we ALL see better days soon! Cheers from PNWest :)

  • Glad all you guys are testing the shot. Will be watching to see your side effects. Hope u stay healthy

  • Witch county did you like the most?

  • And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: (Hebrews 9:27) The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. (2 Peter 3:9) I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. (Luke 13:5) And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: (Acts 17:30)

  • Family is Everything !! Love the bloopers....Kara you are too cute ☺️

  • Oh cool, thank you for the Best for Last info! I've taken my kids to 30 states and we have not yet been to ND

  • I am also excited to travel across an international boarder again.

  • When are you going to visit New Hampshire? You should visit The Flume Gorge and Franconia Notch or Kancamagus Highway and White Mountain National Forest.

  • I am glad to see that most people are commenting on Grandparents and not the Vax

  • Kara and Nate are the best humans ever! And meeting grandpa and grandmama explains it 🙏
