Travel With Purpose
In 2018 we are excited to be introducing a new initiative to Tasi Travels, our Travel With Purpose adventures. These trips are designed for those looking to dive deeper into travel, to connect more with the local people and culture and to have a truly authentic experience of that place.
During my own travels, I found that more and more young people were moving away from the traditional "back-packing/hostel" travel route and wanting to experience different cultures and have unique experiences with other like-minded people. These trips are built around supporting local eco-tourism and travelling responsibly. A part of this would mean that as well as going on an epic adventure, there would be a small element of positive contribution to that area. Depending on the location and the community's needs, this could be in the area of marine debris, access to safe drinking water or community development.
We are leading two trips each year to Atauro Island, Timor-Leste. Our first trip has just returned, however we are now taking expressions of interest for future trips. If you'd like to be a part of a Travel With Purpose adventure, please fill out your details below and we will be in touch once we release trip information.
We look forward to adventuring with you!
Here's what our group said about our recent Travel With Purpose adventure:
"Tasi’s Travel With Purpose trip was an unforgettable experience. Timor-Leste is a beautiful country. Jess was awesome in the lead up to and on the trip, providing me with all the information I needed and creating a fantastic trip with a great mix of adventure, giving back to the community and relaxation. I would absolutely go on another Travel With Purpose trip. Thanks Tasi x"
"Being on this trip just felt like travelling with a group of friends. And that's what it ended up being! It was nice to have the peace of mind that all our accomodation was taken care of and we could just focus on exploring and experiencing a new place. Would love to travel with Tasi again!"
"Tasi Travels' Travel With Purpose trip is such a unique and rare opportunity. Our July 2018 trip managed to embrace the beauty of slow travel while still making a huge impact on the environment and people on Atauro Island. We even had time to fit in snorkelling and hiking activities while also connecting with cultural traditions. It was such a balanced and meaningful trip, given the chance I would definitely join Tasi Travels again!"
"I had the most incredible time on the Travel With Purpose trip to Timor-Leste, words cant even describe it! It was such an awesome adventure, with the biggest bunch of legends. We had the perfect mix of adventure and relaxing. I thoroughly enjoyed the beach clean ups and learning as much as I could about combatting marine debris and especially what the locals are doing on Atauro Island. I can't wait to go back, or join another Travel With Purpose trip!"
"Travelling with Travel with Purpose was the best way to meet likeminded legends and gain a better understanding of some of the issues the place you are travelling to are facing. We saw some amazing things, met some amazing people and I would 100% go again!"
