Today’s travel day was a long one! We sadly left the villa of our dreams at Soneva Jani in the Maldives to embark on a 40 hour travel journey to Egypt. We flew from the island to Male, Male to Sri Lanka, spent the night at an AirBnB, flew to Muscat where we visited a super nice airport lounge, then finally from Oman to Cairo, Egypt! 🙂

Our help through Egypt customs was booked through this company

Originally from Nashville, Tennessee, we got married June 2013 and quickly caught the travel bug! We started “travel hacking” and taking more trips together and finally decided we wanted to travel for one year. After 2 years of saving $ and travel hacking over 2 million miles and points, we sold our cars and apartment and left home January 10, 2016. We started this YouTube channel to share our experiences with friends and family, then decided we really liked vlogging and traveling. So we extended our 1 year trip to THREE years 🙂 Now we have a goal of traveling to 100 countries before Nate turns 30 (which is March 20, 2019)! We are incredibly thankful to do something we love every day. 🙂

  7. Samwalton85 says

    9:24 I get the butterflies everytime I hear the airplane's pre-flight announcement.

  8. Bruce Robertson says

    Why do you have to start and end your videos with advertisements now? What a shame! There are countless other YOUTUBE couples that travel around the world who don't have advertisements! Shame!

  9. Just Call Me Annie says

    Love watching you guys on these crazy travel days! Always entertaining!

    I love Audible. I listen in my car daily. I especially like that it's linked to my Amazon Prime so I get free things like Audible channels which I can listen to under wifi. Thanks for another great travel day vlog

  11. Borton Maverick says

    Thank you for sharing your lovely time at Maldives. You made your dream a reality and have inspire others that dreams can be a reality too for all. ( for following reward and mile point system), at least to fly there for free or little money. I can’t imagine spending the $10k there though.

  12. Dominique Mitchell says

    After months of watching your vlogs, I FINALLY made it to present day vlogs. Super excited to see what the next half of the year will bring us (because technically you are bringing me to places I've always wanted to see). <3 Thank you for the time you spend filming, planning, and editing your vlogs!

  13. haya shafakoj says

    You have to visit Jordan now that you are in Cairo !

  14. Rachel B says

    I’ve been watching your vlogs for the past few months and now I’m finally up to date!! Loved the Maldives vlogs!! Now I’m just sad that I have to wait for new vlogs now!

  15. Michael Sylvester says

    You guys are the best.
    Thanks for sharing this great video.

  16. Richard Holder says

    Hello! Love the Vlogs Very entertain and informative!
    I am currently getting started making drone (DJI Spark) and Sony cam videos. What editing software do you recommend,
    (for dummies). Actually I have. Great deal of computer skills. I am looking for something not to high end to just edit, clip, add music, etc to my videos. Any advice would be a great help!

  17. John Petan says

    Can't believe u said the breakfast wasn't good in the video sigh


  18. Samwalton85 says

    14:59 I’ve always wondered if anyone ever fell in the water riding their bikes on that narrow wooden walkway.

  19. H. Ko-Yu says

    Pick you up at "hotel"…

  20. aLI says

    Since you guys are going to Egypt can you also go to Jordan? they’re near each other and Jordan has a lot to offer!

  21. puttytat007 says

    NO new Egypt Video's or is the WiFi really bad? Hugs.

  22. Qatar 1 says

    Qatar airways is the world best airline

  23. Sam Zii says

    When are you going to visit pakistan.

  24. Emma Jones says

    I'm binge watching your videos. Marvellous. What an energy and positive vibes.
    I particularily loved the ones about India and Nepal and the Trans Siberian train, as I sell a lot of Indian and Asian stuff and I'd just watched a series about the Russian train, reality series in Russian, with the staff that work on it.
    It seems to be a pretty gruelling job. 2 weeks solid on the train and 2 weeks free. Right through the heart of winter as well.
    It was via that series that I found your youtube channel, as you travelled on that train as well.
    The stress, irregular hours and jet lag of that kind of travelling would drive me crazy.
    But I love watching you two from my lazy armchair.
    I think I'll watch your everest series this evening.
    Keep up the good work!

  25. Emma Jones says

    Is all that photographic gear not very heavy and awkward to lug around?

  26. Rocket banerjee says

  30. Swetha Suresh says

    Thank you Kara and Nate,for an another amazing video…I also love to travel and get the inspirations from your videos!

  31. Natalie Brierly says

    I was in Sri Lanka last month (and then the Maldives haha) and it is literally one of the most incredible countries I've ever been to! The people, the food, the culture..I can't wait for you to head back there and do some amazing vlogs!

  32. دنيا نـوار says

    OMG he looks exactly like Cristiano Ronaldo

  33. Mr. Horton says

    Forgive me for saying it, and I don't complain often, but you should never, EVER criticize the people who labor for you to whatever degree they do. Saying, "…it wasn't very good," was completely unnecessary and showed utter contempt and disrespect for those people who worked so hard to share their labors with you in their own way (breakfast).

    That was very discouraging for me to see. Shame on you! Even though you are very deserving 'award' winners, this comment was beneath you and shouldn't have been aired.

    I apologize for my dismay, but I thought you should know.

  34. ukslag says

    Oh. What cell phone provider do you use while travelling

  35. Thiago Profili says

    Guys come to brazil. Seriously its amazing. You can go desert to the lencois maranhenses which is a desert that has a lot of lakes in it. If you like beach and sun go to the northeast region if you like big cities come to sao paulo or rio de janeiro. I can host you guys here hahaha

  36. bri nicole says

    @ 7:27 ew I wouldn’t be eating that lol the bugs

  37. Sanctifiednurse says

    Yea!!! Caught up with all the videos!!

  38. dyhppyx says

    You guys are so cool. I'm new to your channel but seeing some of your past adventures I have to give you major props for making the effort not to complain. It's so admirable especially in this time of whiners lamenting about trivial first world problems. Thank you for showing us how travelling respectfully and appreciatively can be done. I'm trying to be a fellow world traveler, having been to about a 100 countries too. If you guys actually read this and want any ideas for future destinations I'd love to help.

  39. doctors travelogy and foodology says

  43. Jerry "Woody" Woodhead says

    Kara and Nate, my family and friends love your vlogs but something has us worried. It has been six days since your last vlog. We hope you arrived safely in Egypt and all is well. Hoping to hear from you two soon and learn all is well.

  44. ecalora says

    Here’s a question for the Q&A (not sure if it has been asked before): do you guys have a particular country planned for your 100th?
