    Who are Kara and Nate?!
    Watch our documentary here: • 100th COUNTRY DOCUMENTARY
    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. 😊🎥🌎

    I'm just gonna call it in advance.....I think this will end up being your most watched video of 2023. It's hard to top this kind of experience and you did a phenomenal job capturing it. Also, it needs to be mentioned that your video editor is doing her job SO WELL! The clip choices with the audio clips were placed perfectly! Great job Brooke (I think that's your name). There was a major change in video quality when Kara and Nate hired a dedicated video editor and that should notngo unnoticed. Not that Kara wasn't doing a great job but it's evident that making videos is an art form for you Brooke!

    The way I literally sucked in a gasp of air and immediately started tearing up when that camera went under water and there they were. Oh my gawd. SUCH beautiful creatures and such a rare opportunity. Thank you for sharing this. I'm still actually drying my eyes. Oh wow.

    Wow, the photography and presentation is so wonderful in this video- your best ever. We were lucky to see Orcas off the coast from Bremer Bay in Western Australia, but swimming with them is just taking things to an amazing level. Thanks so much for sharing.

    OMG!!! After following you guys for about 3 years, I believe this is BY FAR the most beautiful, intense, emotional and perfectly crafted/edited video you guys have put out there for us to enjoy!
    KARA & NATE reloaded is ON FIRE and it’s here kicking a*s!! From the very beginning with that amazing intro through the very end… WOW! This is absolutely next level cinematography from any content creator I’ve ever seen.
    And yet, the EMOTIONS! I could feel like I could touch everything from my phone screen. Mesmerizing 💙
    I literally couldn’t stop crying while gasping for air with my jaw in the floor😱 the entire time between Mins 10 and 20.
    God bless you guys!!!! Thanks for inspiring people from the bottom of your hearts and with your genuine energy and hunger to live this life to its fullest. All the best!🎉

The excitement from the instructor and the excitement from Kara the first time you got in the water and swam with the orca's had me in tears! Thank you for taking us with you on this incredible adventure!!! Lots of love from LeClaire, IA! ❤

    An Orca has always been my spirit animal. Since I was a kid & I’m 41 now. It really makes me emotional to see a pod so close like that & not get aggressive, assess & strategic. Shows how emotionally intelligent they are. I love elephants too. But no way I’d wanna see a polar bear 😂
