Originally from Nashville, Tennessee, we got married June 2013 and quickly caught the travel bug! We started “travel hacking” & finally decided we wanted to 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 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 now FOUR years 🙂 Now we have a goal of traveling to 100 countries before 2020! We are incredibly thankful to do something we love every day. 🙂

    This video gave me anxiety, watching you walk along those glaciers and cliffs on that what seems to be narrow trail was scary, I am glad you are okay and got to have that beautiful experience

    All the people saying that they shouldn’t have done that and saying that they set a bad example that is your opinion they are adults an THEY get to decide for themselves so everybody who is saying otherwise is rude and dumb

    We go to Zermatt all the time. We have a flat and when we're not there it is up for rent at Zermatt holidays. We also love skiing and definitely Zermatt is the best place on earth not just because of Toblerone and the Matterhorn. Please could we have a shout-out our names are Natalie and Charlotte we live in the UK and are now stuck at home due to COVID 19. We understand that there are lots of people under lockdown and if you can shout-out us please could you say the video. Thanks and by the way the only way we are getting through Lockdown is watching your incredible videos. Thanks again, love your videos.

    08:5909:14 – Why are you doing this? crazy! ._. I was so nervous when I saw the hole in the glacier, showing that it's probably not as solid as it looks. That bitch could've broken any second.

    lol wtf there are people there in this mountain hut? lol. I thought you had gotten the key back in the valley and then walked on to the hut. Never imagined seeing actual people sitting there, acting their jobs. lol.

    For anyone who thinks they are encouraging these kind of hikes are wrong, they are encouraging other people for the spectacular views and the unique accomodation they aren’t encouraging other people for these dangerous hikes there’s a difference. Everyone who comments hurtful things and are scolding them should know better :/
