Kara and Nate: Traveling the World and Living Unconventionally

In this episode of the Kara and Nate podcast, join Kara and Nate, a couple who have traveled to over 100 countries and 39 of the 50 states, as they share their incredible journey of exploring the world and living an unconventional life.

Kara and Nate initially started their travels by using credit card miles and points to visit different countries. However, they decided to take their adventures to the next level by embarking on a year-long trip around the world, documenting their experiences on YouTube. They have built a strong digital community and stay connected with family and friends through FaceTime.

With a dedicated team to help with planning and editing their videos, Kara and Nate have been able to capture unique moments using a camera called Insta 360. They have visited all seven wonders of the world and share special experiences they had at each of them.

One interesting insight they share is that the countries with the nicest and happiest people are often those that receive fewer tourists, such as Kurdistan in Iraq. They discuss the importance of exploring off-the-beaten-path destinations to truly experience the warmth and hospitality of local communities.

During the episode, Kara and Nate also touch on their decision about having children. They talk about the pressure they feel from society and the freedom they have found in living an unconventional life. They share their thoughts on van life and the challenges and rewards that come with it.

Kara opens up about a personal story involving a parasite she had while traveling in Vietnam, highlighting the unexpected challenges that can arise during long-term travel.

Looking ahead, Kara and Nate discuss their upcoming plans, including a desert island survival experience in Tonga. They also mention their newsletter, Daily Drop, which teaches people how to travel for cheap using credit card points.

As the episode comes to a close, the hosts remind listeners to like, subscribe, and leave reviews for the podcast. And with a cheerful "peace out dudes" repeated twice, Kara and Nate bid farewell until the next exciting episode of their travel-filled podcast.
