Originally from Nashville, Tennessee, we got married June 2013 and quickly caught the #travel bug! We started โ€œtravel hackingโ€ & 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 didnโ€™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 ๐Ÿ˜‰ which is when we bought a converted Sprinter 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. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐ŸŽฅ๐ŸŒŽ


  1. Oh thats a good idea, wrapping the pipes around the engine to heat the water. I might have to think of something like that or get someone who knows how to do that and pay them $2k to do it. But I mean that is pretty ingenious

  2. What an incredible yacht! You are both so blessed and Iโ€™m happy you take us along on your adventures. Btw, sailing LaVagabond also my favorite sailing couple ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒŽ๐ŸŒˆโ›ต๏ธ๐Ÿ

  3. lol Kara, not powered by the sun… its powered by the batteries… the sun provides the energy to charge the batteries via the solar panels… regardless it is powered by the batteries…

  4. I have been a big fan of all electric yachts especially sailing vessels for a long time, I would not recommend calling anything the "Tesla" of the sea.

  5. I'm OBSESSED with this boat! After vanlife, I'm going to boatlife for sure! Been obsessively watching catamaran vids (both sailing and solar). Hoping to be able to afford the silent yacht by the time we're ready for boatlife. Fingers crossed and figuring out how to make it happen!

  6. I want this yacht, with a sail, so you can get everywhere with the sails, and use the solar for the house power and electric motor to get in and out of portโ€ฆBut I guess SunReef has us covered on thatโ€ฆ

  7. i do agree with moving forward with technology but i am still gonna keep that sterling wheel just in case the electrical is mess up . the last thing you want is relying on a computer in the middle of the ocean without a back up .

  8. The only thing that is a downside now is I get interrupted by adds at least 5 times during every vlog… I wish it was just once or twice. Kinda destroys the vibe. Love the vlogs, but the ads get in the way.
