    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 Month ago

      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...

    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 literally have tears in my eyes because this is something I've always wanted to do! 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!

    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!

    Beautiful footage of orcas. Glad they didn’t treat you like food and both human and animal maintained a healthy respect for one another. Being around wildlife without fences is life altering for sure. My wife and I once got surrounded by a herd of bison in Yellowstone while hiking in the back country and we kept our cool, but it kept us on edge. And we backed out slowly as soon as we had an opportunity.

    In Canada its illegal to get this close to humpbacks or orcas as endangered species .... what an incredible opportunity, but definitely have mixed feelings about it. It's interesting how different countries have different rules. Also the markings on the centre back of the orcas is completely different than Pacific Northwest orcas which is fascinating! Thanks for the adventure. :)

    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).

    Kara your excitement is always so wonderful to watch. I love that neither of you seem tobe anything excepted joyful about new experiences no matter how many you manage to experience. Of course you only share highlight for the most part. Boy what amazing highlights.
    I have been fortunate enough to have swum with wild dolphins, experience humpback coming right up to the small cruise ship ,seen and heard whales calling while in a submerged boat. So I can only imagine how much higher your experience of swimming with all the orchestra must have been. Thanks.

    It’s fascinating to see how Kara and Nate’s Videoquality went from „normal YoutTube quality“ to cinematic-quality in such a short time.

    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.

  • Sandra Marwood Pattman

    This is an amazing video. Getting into the Arctic water terrifies me but I would so be with you for that experience. I’ve seen the orcas off Vancouver Island and whales off the pacific coast of Mexico but this is beyond incredible.
