👩🏻‍💻 Kara’s Behind the Scenes Guide to Editing a Vlog:
🎥 Our current camera setup:
TWITTER: @karaandnate
Originally from Nashville, Tennessee, we got married June 2013 and quickly caught the #travel bug! We started “travel hacking” & finally decided we wanted to go 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, and we didn’t want to stop after just one year! After achieving our new goal of 100 countries and then all 7 continents (check out our documentary here:, we had no plans to slow down, until 2020 decided to force us to ;) which is when we bought a converted Sprinter van to start exploring our own country for the first time. #Vanlife 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. 😊🎥🌎

    Kara: I'm the same age as you and female and I would just like to warn you to be ready to rest for 24-48 hours after your 2nd pfizer dose. I just had mine and I was out of commission with flu-like symptoms for 24 hours straight. The side effects are much more intense for young adult women, but its 100% worth it instead of getting the actual disease. My flu like symptoms started about 6 hours after my end dose and I was 80% as messed up as you would be with the actual flu. Stomach cramps, severe body aches, low fever, very exhausted. You'll be okay though, I'm so excited to be vaccinated and so happy you are too💕💕💕💕💕

    I liked your grandpa so much. He is an example of what real men used to be. He reminds me of my own grandpa. Except my grandpa wouldn't say no to the vaccine. He would have said HELL NO!!!!!

  • snapcrackleangela

    me, looking at that first map, as someone that just got back from a ring road trip around iceland................... guys, you need to go ASAP. we had the whole place to ourselves! there were 2 other cars in the parking lot when we visited skogafoss, for example. the process to get in was easy enough, and getting a PCR test in iceland to return to the US was very simple as well. i REALLY want to see this video!!

    also you could try and put magnets at the back of your sliding drawers, one on the back of the drawer and one on the back wall of the cupboard, so when you close the drawer the magnets hold the drawer closed but once pulled by hand it releases - its not a stand alone cure but it will help keep your drawers closed in addition to your existing measures.

    instead of avoiding -4 think about passive heating, insulation and also some sort of drainage that will revert the residual water from the tap back into the holding tank, an empty pipe cant burst from expanding water/ice.

    Just because you got the shot doesnt make you immune especially when its you first one...people are still contracting covid who have gotten the shot.

  • Eli-El Cheva

    Can we take a moment and review the vaccine part??? With Nate, The needle was pulled out before the nurse push the trigger and with Kara the needle disappear inside the Syringe and when the nurse pull out the Syringe there was not a needle... Very weird...

    • Elise E

      @tyler wilde it was tested back when they were trying to make the SARS VAČÇIN3 all the animals died within 3 years of organ failure.. now this is the same shot just tweaked w no animal trials. But alot that have died already HAVE died of ..... you guessed it! Organ failure! So sad that so many people are willing to inject something so experimental into their healthy bodies 😥

    • tyler wilde
      tyler wilde

      Hopefully they didn’t get it because that “vaccine” is barely tested and not authentic at all.

    I don't know if anyone else has suggested this but, it looks like it would be awesome if people could add a small photo of their own to the map/picture things. Like if you go to Paris, be able to insert a small pic of yourselves in front of the Eifel tower or eating French bread or something. Just a though...

    Am I the only one that noticed at 7:26 she sticks the needle in but when she pulls it out, the needle isn't there....

    • Music

      Nope, just no one seems to be talking about it....Did you notice that at 7:14 a few frames were edited out that prevents you actually seeing the plunge into Nate's arm (check out his face). And indeed very strange, no needle out of Kara's arm.
