A 10-day festival in Bali

Bali is one of the most extraordinary places to visit in Indonesia, mainly because of its Balinese-Hindu culture. This Indonesian island is currently preparing for one of their most important festivals called Galungan. Galungan is the first day of this 10-day festival, in which they celebrate ‘good over evil’. Galungan happens every 210 days and, for Balinese-Hindus, it is like Christmas. You will truly see how creative and colourful this culture is.Walking down the streets will be a treat for your eyes,read more

Orangutan Adoption

Our Tari Travel family has recently expanded! We have adopted 3 orangutans who were rescued and now being cared for by the Nyaru Menteng Orangutan Rehabilitation and Reintroduction Center founded by the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation (BOS) in Palangka Raya.

Work & Play in Bali

Last year August our website was hacked, actually to the point that it could not be saved at all anymore! Now we have a beautiful, brand new site, built by ourselves so we can adjust it any way we like it. Oh so proud! It took a little bit longer than expected, but we have been working on it just since January and only when our ‘regular’ work was finished. So, finally, after a year we are online again!

With all our efforts to build the website, an invitation to a website and online marketing conference couldn’t be timed more perfectly. Jacqueline and I travelled in May to Bali for an intense 3-day conference hosted by CBI, a branch of the Dutch ministry. It was even better than expected! All the tips & tricks we heard, we implemented directly into the design and functionality of the site. The site is not perfect yet, but it will always be an ongoing process.read more
