    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 truly believe there is not any other channel that compares to Kara and Nate. These videos are edited and made so well, the music, the drone shots, just everything makes me love this channel more and more. Kara and Nate are some of the most kind hearted people on the platform and every Saturday morning I wake up and see what crazy thing you guys have planned. Love yall.

    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!

    That shot when Nate first jumped in was the absolute perfect shot. The 2 so graceful and in sync with their movements. Absolutely stunning, guys. What an experience! So happy 2 guys from my hometown are getting to experience the entire world like this. Seeing how excited Nate was and Kara's tears made it so emotional for me as well. Loved this.

    Insane! Been watching you guys for a few years now, and I'm consistently wowed at the adventures you all embark on. (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!

I was born a military brat born in Oslo, and left as a baby, but I claim Nordic blood! But since I'm waiting for heart surgery, I have been living thru you both for years. But this video has put light (possibly Aurora) back in my dreamy future!!! I will do this trip for my birthday next January, and be as giddy as you both if not more!!! And hearing the orcas Kara will flood my mask with happy tears!!! Hope you experience Mother Aurora dancing huge colors! Ps. NOAA has a forecast of Aurora, set it for Tromso!!! Thank you both😍🌊🩵💙🐋❣️💗

    It’s so weird and cool to see people experience something that is just totally ordinary for us locals. It honestly opens our eyes and makes us realize how awesome it really is. 💙👏🏼 (Not that we normally go swimming with orcas… But we’ve seen them every year and never really thought about it).

    When Nate's on the deck talking about how he's never been this excited in awhile, I think it's the first time I've seen him act like Kara, that excited, child like, happiness. It made me watch this whole video!! So cool you had a dream come true during this trip!!

    I feel like there is a noticeable quality difference in this video. It looks amazing! Especially the intro clips. Absolutely amazing! This video made me cry. The experience you two had is truly incredible. I am beyond envious. This video is my favorite you two have ever posted, and I've been a follower for a little while now. I just can't sing my praises of this video enough!

    Another stellar production. Loved everything about this one; the location, the topic, the scenery. Knocked it OUT OF THE PARK! I have said this before, but the quality of the photography is outstanding - some of the highest caliber work I have ever seen. I feel like I am watching a professionally produced documentary. I could feel your energy throughout the video and I must admit that my own emotions were quite high as this is a dream of mine as well.
    Keep doing what you are doing - this is GREAT!

    First video I've seen of yours and I'm already subscribed. I came for the orcas and stayed for the contagious positive energy you both radiate, the well placed deadliest catch reference, and of course, the breathtaking cinematography.. every scene felt like something straight out of a documentary. Incredibly well done 🤍

    What a joyful video. I live in Norway, but have yet to see Orcas. It would really be a privelege to see them! True exploration is not the land it covers but the journey it inspires!
