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. 🙂

    • Sharon Ristau says:

      I can not keep secrets and I told my husband that it just slip out of my mouth. Don’t tell
      me anything you say this is a secret STOP i cant listen. Haha ha

  2. Natan Kasprzak says:

    I have considered doing that for almost a year, and then i decided that a yaht is a much better option 🙂

  3. DaPUGSTER Xx says:

    YAYAYA IM SO HAPPY for you 😃 😊

  4. DJ says:

    You know they actually have bigger “vans” called RVs. I see a trailer hitch in your future.

  5. Carl Obermeier says:

    This feels like the perfect next chapter. Looking forward to your new adventures!

  6. Valeria Paxton-Marty says:

    Congratulations on your new home! Can’t wait to see where “were” going. I’d love to have kara’s recipe for here Italian pasta dish. Love you guys

  7. Mark Evans says:

    You’ve got free electric, use an electric kettle to boil water then pour it into a saucepan, don’t waste propane!

    • Gordon Lin says:

      Ya, they have a really good one at costco, where you just click a button and it’ll turn off after boiling

    • anonymous or am I? says:

      right and even if the electric isnt free just the 10 sec vs the 10 min it takes to boil the water would answer the dillema for me:)

    • Megan Crippen says:

      I do that and I live in apartment 😁it’s so much faster!

    • Nikki Rodriguez says:

      Gordon Lin i have that exact kettle you’re talking about and idk how i went through life without it

    • onlyteainateapot says:

      As someone who lives in the UK, we just use a kettle every time we boil water! Whether it’s for tea/coffee/water to put in a saucepan to boil food. I find it crazy that it’s not the norm in the US!

  8. Mary M. says:

    Hee hee yay more van lifers!! Eamon & Bec are working on their second one, Craig & Amy are fixing up Custard, Eric & Allison are renovating / upgrading the RV they bought. Oh! Think of the travels y’all could have together with The Endless Adventure!!

    And E&B have the same brand of van you have too!!

    • Poppy K says:

      I’ve literally been binge watching e and b s’ van life videos

    • Eric Yuan says:

      And the fact that they all have Sprinters isn’t a good thing. Several Sprinters Youtubers including Eamon and Bec have reported major problems and breakdowns with them. Eamon and Bec had their engine broken down in Mexico and were basically begging on Youtube to cover repair costs for them.

    • Khloe George says:

      I love a Eamon and Bec.

  9. drewmoz says:

    Most people have to downsize when they buy a sprinter van but Kara and Nate get a major upgrade 😂

  10. hunsbergermatt says:

    Kara and Nate…you should of used the same song from the beginning of your vlogs…lol congrats on new endeavors 😉

  11. Steve Ram says:

    CONGRATS! Discovered you during the pandemic and we have been binge watching your videos! Lol! Thanks for sharing! You guys provide such entertainment and positivity. Really enjoy you channel! Enjoy the new van! God bless!

  12. Ross Martin says:

    You two are going to go to some epic locations! I can feel it coming.
    Time to get a husky and then your channel is going to blow up!

  13. LiveLifeLori says:

    “We’re going back to our roots by eating ramen” hilarious….plus I LOVE ramen! lol

  14. Isabella Holley says:

    I would have such a hard time fitting all my stuff in that van but their probably going to have to buy more stuff cause they travel with only a suitcase!

  15. madelyn newsom says:

    i just love kara and nate. over quarantine my mom and i have watched all of their old vlogs!!! (we are from nashville too♥️)

  16. Victoria Brown says:

    I’ve been wanting 50 states in a year (1 week per state) ever since they started talking about “what should our next goal be”. And the timing couldn’t be better as many travelers are going to be looking at where they can go closer to home. No better time to focus on exploring the country we already live in ! So excited.

    • Greg Hodgkinson says:

      49 states and Washington DC (Hawaii will have to be done with rentals so I kicked it out). I would add the Canadian provinces as well since you have to go through some to get to Alaska.

    • Victoria Brown says:

      This is what I hoped for before the van, so it would have definitely been flying, rental cars, etc.

  17. Just Some Guy without a Mustache says:

    Touring the U.S in a van? This is a lot of people’s dreams and you guys are living it. I hope you have fun.

  18. Hopeful Mystic says:

    Karas face after Nate said “And our bank account is a lot lighter” 🤣❤️

  19. Kr1m5on says:

    “We all fit, nothing spilt, YAY!” Sums up this vlog, congrats you guys!

  20. David Nielson says:

    Though it is likely too late for this comment, my recommendation is to take the van on a trip for a week or two — maybe go out camping in a National or State Park. Get to know the van better, what works for you and what doesn’t. You will likely learn that some of the things that you want to do aren’t a great idea and come up with new ideas that really help you get the van so it will fit your life better.

    Congrats on this new adventure, it will be exciting (once things pick up again) to see you try and visit the various states in the US.
