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. 😊🎥🌎

You guys are so much fun to travel with!! It was such an honor to join this adventure, especially having followed your journey to 100 countries… never thought I’d be there for country #101. Honestly, it was such a joy to join, and see the way you guys see life and the world. Really so refreshing for me. You deserve all of the success you’ve gotten and more. THANK YOU FOR THE MEMORIES.
Dear Nathaniel, I really enjoyed seeing you with Kara and Nate. I, too, have a fear of heights. I truly felt for you!
Such a lucky guy! So cool.
Love your energy and subscribed to you as it was absolutely amazing.
Glad you joined, It was such a surprise! Every video you’re in just makes me want to be your best friend! Everything about you is so refreshing!
Hope we see more of you.
Nathaniel is definitely the perfect person to take while traveling, super outgoing and funny. He lightens up the mood and I admire his personality. Bulgaria is so beautiful! Congrats on 101❤️

I loved everything about this! I’m a fan of all your content, but a spontaneous trip with minimal planning is gold! It’s so entertaining and the best way to make memories! And Nathanial was great — travel with him more often!
Ahh I’m so so happy you got to visit my home country! You saw some beautiful spots but there is so much more to see 😍 We’ve definitely got to go back together soon. My grandparents would love to host you and you have to try a shopska salad with homegrown tomatoes from their garden ❤️ Love you both!
Aaaah wtf I had no idea you guys were Bulgarian 😭❤️ I should watch more of your videos!
Would love to see that video!
YES PLEASE ❤️🍅🇧🇬
You have consolidated yourselves as one of the best travel channels in Youtube and I’m so proud to have witnessed most of your growth. Congratulations, you guys totally deserve it!!!!
I cannot believe you guys finally went to my home country. I’ve been watching you guys for the longest time and i’m so sad you guys weren’t able to go to the black sea. It’s crazy how other people find my home country fascinating! I love you guys!❤️
Can we just take a minute to appreciate that macro shot of the bee exiting the flower 😻😻
The quality of the storytelling, Timelapses, and overall edit is just THROUGH THE ROOF. Getting better and better each video ❤️❤️
Sending love from Trinidad and Tobago 🇹🇹🤗💙
Guys, I just smile the whole time while I watch how excited yall get about everything. Thanks for bringing more smiles into the world!
Nathaniel was such a funny person to add to the group. I think he should definitely be in the future videos. Love y’alls videos ❤️
I also agree! More Nathaniel please.
He interrupted too much for my taste.
I agree 100%.
I second that wholeheartedly! ☺️
Same, LOVE the addition of Nate #2!
