We love telling stories about beautiful destinations and extraordinary cultures. One of our dreams was to create our own travel show, and that is what we do now! Its called LeKi op Reis and translated from Dutch into English it is “Léon and Kirsten on Travel.” Why make things difficult? 😉

Documentary: Meet The Māori

We’ve traveled through New Zealand to shoot a documentary about the Māori. They are the indigenous Polynesian people of New Zealand and arrived about 1000 years ago and became the first people in New Zealand.

Enjoy the beautiful landscapes of New Zealand and the fascinating stories of the Māori. Learn more about the Haka, History, Ta Moko (tattoo) and the connection the Māori have with nature.

Documentary: Swimming With Humpback Whales – Tonga

Swimming with humpback whales in Tonga was on the top of our bucket list when we started traveling the world. To make our dreams coming true, we traveled together with Kirsten’s father to the small and remote island of ‘Eua in Tonga.

Enjoy our travel documentary about our once-in-a-lifetime-trip to the end of the world (yes it’s the end of the world for us Dutchies ;).

In this documentary, you’ll see our adventure starting in Australia (Sydney) all the way to the remote island of ‘Eua in the Kingdom of Tonga. We spend a week with the local family and guides, and next to us there are only a few other travelers from Australia.

We interview the captain of the boat, Litani Taufa. Unfortunately, a few months later Litani unexpectedly passed away. We’re still sorry for his loss. Grateful for him and his family that we experienced this adventure with them.

Documentary: The Living Dead – Tana Toraja – Indonesia (Sulawesi)

For the people of Toraja Land, located on the island of Sulawesi (formerly known as Celebes) in Northern Indonesia, the most important thing about life is death.

The Toraja have the most unique and complex burial rituals in the world and we wanted to know more about it. So we traveled to Tana Toraja in Sulawesi to film this documentary. It is a surprising, and interesting story.
