    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. 😊🎥🌎

      If your grandparents had a USfilm channel........they would be instant stars! I would subscribe in a heartbeat.

    7. Lori Cimino

      Your grandparents are precious 🥺

    8. CL

      I'm late getting caught up on the videos but I'm honestly tearing up with joy seeing you guys not just mention getting vaccinated but showing your excitement to do so and how easy and pain free it is! I live in Canada where its still a total nightmare trying to get vaccines but we're finally starting to see some progress in getting at least one dose of a vaccine into a good chunk of people, so hope is on the horizon!! I can't wait until we can get back to travelling and I can hopefully run into you while travelling in the future, that's the dream for me!

    9. Shane P

      Hey you Should Add Cruising too!

    20. Saltwater Nomads

      1. bcvbb hyui

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

    24. Gabriella Galgani

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

    25. Ruth Oglesby

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

    26. Steve Lawrence

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

    27. Later Sk8ter

      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💕💕💕💕💕

    28. snapcrackleangela

      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!!

    29. Caitlin Issitt

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

    30. Paleis Heuwel

      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.

    31. Paleis Heuwel

      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.

    32. lieke :p

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

    33. Alison Blackwell

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

      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

      1. NewTrollingGen

        Shut up 🤦‍♂️


      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

    50. A Sheep No More

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

    51. chris weigel

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

    63. Caged

    64. Cheyenne Henry

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

      1. Cheyenne Henry

        @Kananiokalani Jeremiah no like I'm sure it came out but it was just freaky.

      2. Kananiokalani Jeremiah

        I am sure it’s a retractable needle

      3. Sophia Torrenueva

        I saw that too!

      4. Xavier Sacaza

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

    65. Jenna D

      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 ❤

    66. alida flus

      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!

    68. Scott Luther

      @ 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!

    69. Pishy Lucero

      that was some beutiful quality time with your pops

      1. Pishy Lucero

        @alida flus me or nate?

      2. alida flus

        You make me want to fall in love with someone.

    70. the beautiful good

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

    71. politcally correct

      Sink/faucet, same thing i guess lol

    72. politcally correct

      Can't you get the vaccine anywhere now?

    73. Alyssa Chen

      y’all have to visit massachusetts!!

    74. Olivia Cook

      Nate’s grandfather looks a lot younger that 87.

    75. Kamakshi Goyal

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

    76. Tiana Gadsden

      Blue and orange missed mugs? Av

    77. gary clark

      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.

    78. Eli-El Cheva

      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...

      1. Elise E

        @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 😥

      2. tyler wilde

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

    79. White Hawk

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

    80. Christina Wheeler

      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

    81. Tootsla 125

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

    82. eustace2c2

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

    83. Justin Lowery

      You make me want to fall in love with someone.

    84. Brock Chapman

    87. twin Gordon

      Your grandpa is hella cool!😎

    88. TIM and FIN

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

    89. Bill Seacrist

      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...

    90. Alessandro Sabino

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

    91. muskan b

      Lots of love to you guys ❤️❤️

    92. Donna Hanford Nichols

      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.

    93. RichardinNC1

      I just received my K&N mug!

    94. Matt M

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