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.

  • Sailing has become our family norm in summers for a very long time - sleeping on a yacht for days has become somewhat of a summer tradition for Chloè now in Greece. I’ve been lucky enough to have great sailing experience and learning from the best. This summer, back to Portugal but this time across the islands for the very first time!!
  • She’s the girl that has a thousands things to say to you, and a thousands reasons not to... 💫
  • I can’t wait to go back to my beautiful home 🇱🇧 Have you been to lebanon before? ♥️
  • I read once that some people have the ability to magnetize the people they need to help push them even further into greatness. Some take them for granted, some don't see it because they are too blind. But for those who can see it, be grateful for it, because even if you think you don't need them, one day you might understand the chemistry you once had. 💫
  • Just found this photo, 4 years ago, when I was back in Sri Lanka, it feels like another lifetime, do you ever have that feeling when looking at old photos?
  • The start of summer days in Dubai isn’t so easy with the heat but I’ve managed to pull through by keeping busy with upcoming projects and getting ready for my trip back to Portugal in a couple of weeks for summer!
The exciting bit is that on Saturday the 9th of June in Dubai, I’m hosting another successful and popular workshop: ‘Let’s Get Social’ A workshop on how to turn your passion into a business and the use social media. You can message me to learn more on how to join and learn almost everything I know on how to run your business successfully on social media and tips on successful blogging! Happy Sunday everyone! ☀️
  • There is something you should know... I don’t have everything figured out. Believe me, sometimes, even the people who look like they have their sh*t together... sometimes don’t know what the hell they are doing, but that’s ok because we are not meant to all the time! ♥️
Thank you to @dennisstever for the picture 💫
  • The midnight sun. Where the sun never sets. Endless days... For once, I finally found a place where I had enough hours in the day to do everything I wanted. To take my shots without rushing for the sun to set and keep those color in the skies for more than just seconds and minutes and have endless conversations with friends. This is the sun at midnight beyond the arctic. The sun remains this way till sunrise in the summer from the 20th of May till the 21st of  June and we witnessed the first day of the rise of the midnight sun ♥️ thanks to my wonderful friends @pukkatravels where you can join my next trip in October but this time, we sail in search of the Northern Lights 💫
  • JOIN ME THIS OCTOBER!! The remote islands in Tromsø are one of the most rugged landscapes I’ve ever seen!! I’m so excited to share it with you for those who are interested in joining one of my next @travelwithtjd adventure series with @dennisstever who took this photo of me!!
In October you can also join us as we sail for one night in the arctic and into the fjords to watch the NORTHERN LIGHTS, the rest of our stay will be on land driving into the fjords and set a campfire to see the Auroras! 
It’s going to be an adventure with photography advise, arctic wildlife on ground, at sea and in the skies!
In partnership with my dearest friends from @pukkatravels 
Spaces are very limited and all the info is found in the link in my bio and you can always get in touch if you have any questions!! (More on highlighted stories) #TravelwithTJD
  • I hope you find that place one day. Where the chaos inside is understood and your heart feels at home... no matter where you are. 💫
  • Lost and unlost... Lost and unlost... Over and over again. 
It was almost midnight, (Yes, this is how midnight looks like) where the sun never sets till sunrise, and we decided to climb up the hill to see where we actually anchored the boat, knowing this was a remote island.  The wind was pushing us back and forth and we kept losing balance, no tripod would ever stand-alone. Then, when we reached the top, both Dennis and I froze, dropped to the ground from the shock and suddenly we were numb. The light from the midnight sun reflected the mountains, the sea, the grass and the skies turned pink and purple!! All of a sudden I had a rush of emotions that I couldn’t hold inside of me and my eyes were filled with tears, mostly from the wind and mostly from not knowing how to deal with so much feelings. 
This was a reality I would always want to stay awake for. Then, @dennisstever pulled his camera and took my picture when I was in my moment and I’m so grateful for that!! @pukkatravels @travelwithtjd
  • They say, reality is a projection of your thoughts. I’ve dreamed about sailing north of the arctic for years... I never doubted for a second that it would not happen ‘one day’ but, nothing every prepared me for what I’m experiencing on this trip witnessing the magic of the midnight sun!! I’ve seen and felt things I never imagined existed or at least only on @natgeotravel magazines. This is the start of my 3 day journey sailing in the arctic! 💫

I’m also very excited to announce our new partnership with @pukkatravels for our next @travelwithtjd #TravelWithTJD in October and now, you can join me too! Information will be up tonight on the link in bio!
