1.       Visit Fume, a casual homegrown neighborhood eatery, serving wholesome food from around the world. Make sure to leave space for dessert as they offer the trendiest and most mouthwatering desserts in town. Conveniently located in Manzil Downtown with beautiful views of Burj Khalifa.

2.       Get an Adrenaline rush as you ride the waves of the Gulf on a Wakeboard and feast your eyes on the beautiful views of both Dubai Marina and The Palm Jumeirah’s skyline.

3.       For Fitness fanatics that are reluctant to break their workout routine, experience an Aerial Yoga class at A-Tone Fitness Lounge  or a Barre Class at Physique 57 .

4.       Enjoy a day at Kite Beach, the best public beach in Dubai with views of Burj Al Arab. The strip attracts many Kite surfers, who are fun to watch, and you can enjoy fine burgers from Salt’s food truck around the corner & a refreshingly cold pretzel latte from Grind Coffee.

5.       Food Truck Concepts and Pit Stops are taking Dubai by storm! Hangry Hangar is an indoor pop-up food truck park that features scrumptious street style food from local & independent outlets in the city. If you’re up for an outdoor experience, The Last Exit is also a great foodie destination.

 

6.       Al Serkal is a must visit if you are looking to experience Dubai’s artsy, creative side. Home to a variety art galleries, cultural spaces (Nadi Al Qouz – the latest pop up), & cafes.

 

7.       Re-energize with a cup of coffee from Espresso Lab in Jumeira or Gold Box Roastery  in Al Quoz. Nothing tastes as good as specialty coffee!

 

8.       Sit outside, between the Abras and the old souks at Creekside Café, and get a taste of Old Dubai’s charm.

9.      Get pampered at the One & Only Spa and disconnect from the city at their stunning pool. Catch the sunset, seaside, at 101 Dining Lounge & Bar.

 

10.    Dine in Cipriani DIFC – A little venice in the heart of Dubai, Cipriani’s concept is to “Serve others as you would want to be served yourself”. Make sure you book your table, it is usually booked every day of the week.

  • Feeling a little pink today because I took a day off work and doing some packing for an exciting trip ahead! 
I pack a week before my trip 🙄... is anyone the same?
  • This month, I asked the universe to help me in the practice of ‘letting go gracefully’ and I turned towards my Ashtanga practice. It has been more consistent than I can ever remember and I thank my teacher for navigating me. 
My mat has always been my private mirror ...Showing me my strength and weaknesses and my ability to push through when I’m stuck. It has me flirting with patience and, hope that one day, I might acquire it. It has been helping me shift my perspective and release the ‘need to control everything’ side of me... but still keep the organized side of me. 
Letting go is part of my healing process, whether it’s a posture that I need to fall into or catching my breath... because healing, is my responsibility... and no one else’s. 
These series of photos reminds of me a moment of achievement. The moment I’ve always wanted to sail in the Arctic dream a year ago, turned into a reality.
  • I love how so many of you played the exercise on my instastory. Wether it’s real or not, it’s nice to get to know a little more about you. 
I found love, success, happiness. Then found power, money, experience 🤣 
Did you also manage to find more words?
  • The bravest thing I’ve ever done was be a mother and learning to deal with fears I never knew existed... most of all, when I see her, I see the evidence of how strong I can be, and I remind myself: You’ve got this. 💫
  • The midnight sun is slowly making its way into the arctic. One of the world’s greatest phenomenon. Where the sun never completely sets and is visible day and night. Have you ever seen it?
I struggle to find the words to describe this feeling, because no words are strong enough. This was taken a little past midnight while sailing in the arctic on our @travelwithtjd - We are launching more TJD trips like those for you to join and experience it together. Follow @travelwithtjd to find out more on how you can join ❤️
  • I get asked constantly for advice on the best resorts in the Maldives that is children friendly. For me, it’s not only about the facilities but also the trust that’s built with the staff and the program they have for kids each day. Chloe loved it here, made new friends and cried when we left. That’s why I find it easy to always return to Joali. 
What’s your favorite island in Maldives?
  • Italy: A series of few images I took years back when I visited Florence. I remember the highlights of my trip: The gorgeous @fsflorence - Cinque Terre - A moment where I felt I lost all my inspiration - The magical sunset at Piazzale Michelangelo. 
What are your favorite things to do in Florence?
  • Throwback to almost 3 years ago. A friend asked for my recommendation for Bali and it brought up some memories. So found this picture. It’s one of my favorite places in Uluwatu and one of my favorite summer! Happy Sunday 🐰
  • The island’s Manta Tree house, designed by one and only Porky Hefer. It’s 5 meters in the air and a wingspan of almost 15m. The 50m tail of the manta is a suspended walkway leading up to body which seats up to 10 people! One of the many art pieces in @joalimaldives - I’ve never seen anything quite like it!!!
  • I’ve been trying to (really focusing more this time) to wake up and sleep with affirmations. It used to help me a lot in the past then somewhere along the way, I stopped for a while.
I’d love to read what’s yours!! Everyday, I try to read and write new ones so here goes mine for today and I hope it resonates with you 💕:
“If I want it, I can attract it” Abraham Hicks
  • I am always surrounded by love (and water) because all I see is love 💕 
Happy Easter everyone!
  • A huge shift in my energy today as I start working on our next @travelwithtjd - Scandic countries holds an exhilarating amount of joy and peace in my heart, which I’ve learned not to search anymore for reasons to explain it, because some things cannot always be expressed in words. 
We have recently launched Sweden’s Arctic experience on @travelwithtjd other than Finland, Iceland and Norway. The link is in bio if you like to join our polar journeys and have an adventure of a lifetime. Only 2 spaces left for Sweden. Hope to see you on our TJD trips!
