Welcome to Mantarei

We are serial travellers, art lovers and videographers!

We believe in fun, freedom and adventure, connection, discovery, cultural experiences and learning. All of these make our lives richer and more meaningful and we try to capture this digitally.

Our goal here at mantarei is to share our ideas about life, travel and family. We want to use arts and adventure to bring people together because they speak to our soul and our creativity. They keep us passionate and make us feel alive.

Of all the animals, we think that humans are the most interesting and achieve some of the most amazing things. Fine arts, dance, music, theatre, fashion all showcase the incredible talent and creativity that people possess. We love travelling because it shows us how similar people are the world over and yet highlights the amazing cultural uniqueness we all have.

Using videography and multi-media, we document our adventures and fun, and hopefully share some unknown gems. We want to connect artists, free spirits and travellers alike.

Travel and the arts feed our souls and inspire us to love and dream, and in turn, inspire others.


Talent is cheaper than table salt. What separates the talented individual from the successful one is a lot of hard work.
Stephen King
Youth has no age.
Pablo Picasso
All people dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their mind, wake in the morning to find it was vanity. But the dreamers of the day are dangerous people, for they dream their dreams with open eyes, and make them come true.
D.H. Lawrence
