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. It 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. 😊🎥🌎

  • Glad you’re going to all the states but it makes me sad that the state I live in is one of the states you said you didn’t really want to go to. Comparing us to some of the places you ended up liking but were really surprised because they seemed so awful 😥

  • Hello, I’m not from the States, I live in Manitoba Canada. I would hugely recommend that you visit the very unique ‘House on the Rock’ in Spring Green, Wisconsin. Also, I strongly recommend spending some time on Mackinac Island near the northern peninsula in Michigan (an Island where no traffic is allowed, only horses and bicycles). The island opens for tourists each year in May. It is also the fudge capital of the USA (or maybe even the world??). I’ve been to both places twice. Great places to see.

I’m older than you all so I also loved that my joints felt better for months after enjoying the hot springs.

  • Sorry if this duplicates later, but for some reason my earlier comment isn't showing. Check out the Walter Inglis Anderson museum in Ocean Springs MS. Charter a boat out to Horn Island where he would row to and strap himself to a tree during hurricanes. Like many brilliant artists, he wasn't entirely sane! On my trip out, we went out on a shrimp boat, docked on the north side and hiked across to the beautiful beach on the Gulf side. We cooked our catch that night and it was the best shrimp ever. Or eat at one of the excellent Vietnamese restaurants in the area; there's a sizeable Vietnamese shrimping community on the MS Coast.

  • Yay! Sounds like an awesome plan! For Iowa, here's some suggestions: Check out the Field of Dreams movie site in Dyersville. Maquoketa Caves State Park in eastern IA is really neat! If you're in central IA, I've heard Ledges State Park is interesting as well. Crystal Lake Cave near Dubuque has a really cool cave tour. I haven't been, but the world's largest man-made grotto, The Grotto of the Redemption, is in Iowa. There's the High Trestle Trail bridge in central IA. It lights up at night and it's really cool! Great views and a fun place to take pictures. If you're here in late summer, The National Balloon Classic boasts over 100 hot air balloons. Something I've been wanting to do is ride a train at the Boone and Scenic Valley Railroad. The routes offered look really pretty. I'd recommend the Tulip Festival in Pella, IA in May, but I'd imagine Covid's going to put a damper on things. As for food, I'm not very adventurous myself, but I do recommend getting the Denver style pizza at Great Plains Pizza in Ames, IA. It's a thick wheat crust that you drizzle honey on. Very good! If you are a fan of burritos, the local chain is Pancheros. The burritos are HUGE, waaaayyyy better than Chipotle, and you have to get the queso! A couple of the most talked about places (I haven't been to either, because again, I'm boring 😂) are Fong's Pizza and Zombie Burger. Fong's is Asian inspired pizza, and their best seller is crab rangoon pizza. Zombie Burger is just a very over-the-top fun burger place. I also have to recommend, if you are here during late July-ish, just take a drive out in the country. That's when the crops are at their peaks, and one of my favorite sites in the world is seeing miles and miles of deep green fields flowing in the wind. 😄
