Great YouTube Channel for Travel Inspo (totally binge-worthy!)

Today I’d like to introduce you to one of my favorite YouTube channels in my subscription feed. Kara and Nate are a husband and wife travel team exploring 100 countries before 2019, and they share their adventures through daily vlogs.

In pre-YouTube times I used to be obsessed with shows like “Globe Trekker” and Samantha Brown‘s “Passport to [fill in the blank].” They totally filled the hole in my heart carved out by a deep sense of wanderlust. Finding Kara and Nate’s channel left me feeling similarly. While I’ve watched other YouTubers who focus on travel, none have felt so relatable or, honestly, are as fun to watch!

If you’re looking for something travel-related to binge watch this weekend, I would HIGHLY recommend checking out this channel. They have videos from all over the world but I especially love their two week trek in the Himalayas

and their train journey on the Tran-Siberian Railroad

If you’ve been following this blog long enough these two adventures should come as no surprise as my OBVIOUS favorites. [Check out this post and this one.] I really dig trains and I REALLY dig Himalayan mountaineering.

And speaking of Himalayan mountaineering, in honor of reaching 100k subscribers, Kara and Nate partnered with iTrek Nepal to give away an adventure like the one they took to Everest Base Camp!!! Which, if you watched the playlist I linked above, you’ll probably want to win. You can enter HERE. (But remember – the trip is for 2 so you should probs take me as your +1, k? I’ll happily share all my random Everest knowledge with ya!!)

Here’s a video about the giveaway —

GO ENTER! 

Do you have any favorite YouTube channels that I should binge-watch this weekend? How do you cure your wanderlust? Share below! 

P.S. Wanna exercise this weekend instead of binge-watching travel vids on the couch? Here’s a Great YouTube Channel for Lifelong Ballerinas.

Travel: 5 ways to float a river this summer.

Have you ever hopped in a river and made a day of twisting and turning along a watery path? Was it a lazy affair in an inner tube (perhaps with a floating cooler attached by rope)? Or were you going for the gold on some harsh rapids? Just for fun, here are five fantastic ways to float down a river…in case you get the hankering this summer. I’m feeling inspired for a road-trip already! Ready, set, FLOAT…
