10 Cool Things to Do in Dubai This SeasonLike1

1. Experience Aqua Park in Atlantis with Royal Caribbean UK

One of the greatest experiences while in Dubai is Aqua Park in Atlantis. Reason is simple, I guarantee laughter like no other to a point where your stomach cramps! The Aqua Park in Atlantis was in collaboration with Royal Caribbean UK, the all inclusive cruise, every cruise you book to Dubai with them, you can a chance to pick an excursion that is included in the package and we picked Aqua Park and loved every minute of it! Make sure you go early! As I live in Dubai, I was able to drive straight to Atlantis but if you’re coming from a Royal Caribbean ship, you will have been dropped off at cruise terminal Mina Rashid, DP World Cruise Terminals, from where you will be picked up for any of the available excursions.

2. Visit the Dubai Opera

The Dubai Opera programme is available to view online and tickets to The Pearl Fishers, The Barber of Seville, Opera Without Words, Coppélia, Giselle, Postcards from Vienna, Mozart Gala, Impossible, José Carreras, Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, Sara Baras, Anoushka Shankar, Béjart Ballet Lausanne, The Nutcracker on Ice and Slava’s Snowshow can be purchased online.

6. Miss Lily’s Jamaican Restaurant

Good luck getting a table reservation there! The rumors were true! It took us a month and a half to get a table! But oh was it so worth the wait! You may never want to leave! Located in the Sheraton Grand hotel and serving the best Jamaican & Caribbean food in the city. The jerk chicken reminded me of the month we spent in Jamaica back in 2009.

7. Dine in Couqley

A new French restaurant called Couqley has hit the Dubai scenes pretty strong! The Merry Poppins of french cuisines (which are difficult to find in Dubai). A delicious french bistro from the heart of Beirut! It’s located in Cluster A in JLT, Laguna Tower.

8. Eat in Mythos Kouzina & Grill 

The only thing that is missing here is the breaking of traditional plates on the floor, perhaps one day but for now, Mythos Kouzina & Grill has been the place to go to for authentic Greek food! Have a glass of wine, order the spicy feta cheese dip and enjoy the music that will for a long second, take you back to Greece!

9. Brunch at La Brasserie 2.0

They call it brunching to the next level. One of the richest brunches you will find. Over 10 live cooking stations, fresh seafood and an after party from 5-8pm! You will love the selection of desserts, the wine bar ‘buffet style’ (very cool) and the beautiful atmosphere outdoor (when weather permits) otherwise you can sit indoor! Great for family & friends! Grab your kids, your friends and start your day at 1:30 pm and enjoy one of the best live bands we’ve heard in a long time!

10. The Jetty Lounge

The season is ON! An old time favorite and always on our list! The Jetty Lounge at The One & Only Royal Mirage in Dubai is a wonderful place for sundowners! You might keep coming back for the olives, the drinks or the Spanish tapas. Whatever it may be, you will be back here over and over again.

  • It’s a fact that I struggle with words often face to face, because strong feelings can all be inside me but only left for me to feel them... It is not that the meaning cannot be explained... But there are certain meanings that are lost the moment they are explained in words, and that’s how, without any pressure, I’ve learned to take it all in... 💫
  • Are you a beach villa or a water-villa person?
Each water villa at @joalimaldives has a 35sqm pool (Apart from the ocean residence which have two pools like this one!)
Happy Sunday from the happiest island! ♥️
  • A wish you were here kind of day 💫
@joalimaldives
  • Maldives is a beautiful paradise but has a fragile ecosystem that plays a role to keep the magic alive. The construction at JOALI Maldives @joalimaldives was designed to build around the trees, to save as many as possible. They saved over 1000 trees and work so passionately on sustainability. 🐠 It’s very close to my heart that we constantly support and value our ocean especially the marine life ♥️
  • I love to introduce you to JOALI Maldives. @joalimaldives 
A brand new island that stands out because it has built its’ whole identity on ‘Joie de vivre’ which constitutes the art of living... really, truly living life, embracing it fully. Whether you call it living in the moment, or self fulfillment, joie de vivre is a quality and a feeling we can all learn to acquire. Say hello to the beautiful and unique @joalimaldives
  • It’s just who she is, a little entertainer, especially when I ask her to look at the camera so we can take a ‘subtle’ shot... but nope, instead, she breaks into her dance moves and I thought... why the hell not... and just took the picture. ♥️
  • One of the most beautiful places I’ve been to, Madeira Island 🌴 - An Island 2 hours away from Lisbon by plane! Have you ever been?
  • A year ago today I was in Cambodia 🇰🇭 💫
So much growth from where I was and where I am today, but I’ll always remember where I started. 
I’m curious to know, which was the first photograph you remember of me since you started following my journey?
  • A new week in the UAE and my last before being back on the road! It’s been a great break from flying but I think I’m ready to get back out there with my camera! 
Happy Sunday everyone! Kick ass in whatever you are doing today! ♥️
  • Who is coming with me!? We just released new dates for @travelwithtjd for 2019 and I am overwhelmed with your responses!! There is a power in disconnection and I find it right here! I now count the days to go back to Finland and everywhere in Scandinavia. 
Click the link in bio and join our Adventure Travel Movement in Finland in March 2019! Spaces are very limited 😊 and it’s an adventure of a lifetime in the most authentic way!! ♥️
  • Dubai still super hot but nothing a weekend at the pool won’t fix! It’s still summer here with 40 degrees Celsius... What’s the weather like where you are?
  • Counting down for our next @travelwithtjd group adventure trip this October! #TravelwithTJD
It feels like ages ago when @dennisstever and I went sailing in the Arctic in May to experience the midnight sun and I remember it was still a little chilly!! I remember having to change into that red dress for the picture because we thought it was a good idea! 😂 
I can guarantee you that I froze! The white sand and the rocks were undeniably cold and Dennis was having a laugh while taking the picture!! You can even see the ripple effect on the water! 
Have you ever ‘froze’ for a picture? 😊

Thank you @dennisstever for the 📷 and @pukkatravels for the love!
