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

      @SebSk - Understood, and agreed. I'm in the market for a wet suit (having always 'borrowed' one before). Any suggestions as to brand?

    • SebSk
      SebSk Місяць тому

      If you're surfing you don't even need drysuits during winter, wetsuits are enough :D Done it myself, no gloves. As long as you're active, the water that gets into your suit will act as a warm(ed up) layer. I'm Norwegian though (and half Finnish) idk if that has anything to say :p
      Winter surfing in Norway can be fantastic. Just be careful and know what you're doing...

    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!🎉

    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!

I have loved orcas since I was a kid, researched everything I could about it, would have studied to be an oceanographer but my grades were not great in biology. This is absolutely incredible footage! Look up Aquatic Adventures where you can swim with whale sharks in Isla Mujeres and humpback whales and their babies in the Silver Banks of the Dominican Republic. So jealous right now but so happy to have been able to watch this experience!

(Sad to have not gotten to do the Italy vespa tour or the Nashville 1 million followers trips) You take travel vlogging to a different level. Wouldn't be surprised if travel channel or nat geo doesn't pick you up one day for your own show. That said, orkas can be so aggressive - I'm surprised they let people dive with them!

    Did you ever feel afraid? Was the sounds they made loud under there?? They’re so freaking beautiful and majestic. Seeing them this way makes thinking about them in theme parks so unfathomable.
