A Mini Series in Sri Lanka – Travel With TJDLike0

I cannot believe this is actually happening…

Well, almost happening!

For as long as I can remember, travelling from country to country, meeting the most wonderful people, some who kept in touch while others left to linger in my mind; I have always wanted to shoot a travel video. It’s not ‘Travel Channel’ material just yet, but thanks to so many of my wonderful supporters, friends, family and to Freezeflowmedia – who filmed and edited this small pilot of a mini series – ‘Travel with TJD’ is certainly on the right track.

It’s tough. It’s more than just travelling, fun and games. It’s building a realm of what I strongly believe could work. Then I remember the endless reasons of why I shouldn’t stop and go on. At some point, I had to make a decision, boundaries don’t keep the negativity out, they fence you in. That’s what I learnt. That’s how we are built. So you can cross those obstacles just like I am learning to do everyday. Some are risky and some are not, but here is what I really know, if you are willing to take chances, be completely true to yourself and not just others, the view from the other side is just spectacular.

Three weeks ago, Travel Junkie Diary invited 7 strangers from across the world to fly together to an exotic destination, Sri Lanka. Why Sri Lanka? Simply because in only one year, I visited 8 times. I worked closely with an orphanage in building and supporting single parents – a majority being women – and educating them on certain things. The 7 guests were supporters, friends, followers and strangers to myself, but in one way or another, we found our common grounds and learnt so much from each other. Departing from Dubai, on-board a pleasant flydubai business class flight and arriving at Heritance Ahungalla. Accompanied by love, jokes, music, yoga, food, spa and exploring the villages, towns and people, this was an experience of a lifetime.

The purpose of the trip was to thank each and everyone for supporting TJD and to give the opportunity to everyone to travel as strangers.

Below is the pilot the my own short mini series, Travel with TJD. Follow me on Instagram and look up #travelwithTJD for lots more.

You can even see pictures and find out more {here}. Don’t forget to read the article from the lovely Foodiva {here} where she too talks about the Sri Lanka trip.

I am also very excited to announce our next trip with 7 unknown strangers from across the world very soon! Thank you everyone for making this happen and if you would like to be involved please email us at [email protected] and crossover the lines and boundaries you set for yourself.

 

 

Love,
