THE DREAM

Have you ever dreamed of dropping everything and travelling to weird, wonderful and intrepid places across the world?

A pair of brown newbie-backpacking Kiwi girls did just that.

See what happens when you pluck two city dwelling besties from New Zealand and drop them off-the-beaten track in the middle of the Americas.

THE REALITY

#NotTheseTourists is a travel web series which was shot over three months and is hosted by indigenous presenters, Casey Kaa and Nikki Si'ulepa.

An 'out of the ordinary' trip for Maori and Pacific people; this series encourages New Zealand audiences to vicariously follow our wet-behind-the-ear travellers.

OUR CRAZY DUO 

Usually working behind the camera in film and television, these two friends leave their close-knit families and dive into this daring adventure. They face a pivotal twist when Casey's mum is suddenly diagnosed with cancer back home.

THE SERIES

Over thirteen jam packed webisodes, follow our adventures to places they've never even heard of! Each episode is full of banter, physical and emotional challenges and (when it come to this pair) a whole lot of drama! 

HOW YOU CAN HELP?

We've already shot this series and now we need your help to get it edited. We'll add in all kinds of whistles and bells to keep you laughing along with us through this adventure. 

Boosted is an all or nothing crowdfunding platform, which means that if we don't reach our target, the donations are returned to the donors and our footage stays locked in our hard drives, which would be a crying shame. 

Help us take you on our hilarious journey across the Americas by contributing to our campaign. 

Nga mihi aroha, Casey and Nikki

    They say that "We travel, initially to lose ourselves, and we travel next, to find oursleves". Well I don't know who 'they' refers to but let it be known we lose ourselves A LOT on this series, and we find ourselves in some hilarious encounters along the way too. I guess that's close enough. 

    Lose yourself with us!
