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,

  • Back in the desert 🐫 and I think summer just kicked in 🤷🏼‍♀️
  • I woke up right here on my back way from Voss to Oslo. 350 metres above Oslo city and right in Nordmarka forest🌳
  • I could be staring at the same mountains that loomed over passing Vikings and I’m in love... Wouldn’t you be?
  • From Oslo, I took the NSB train to Myrdal which is a 5 hour journey, then boarded the Flåm Railway, named by @natgeotravel one of the most beautiful train journey in Europe taking you through west Norway’s most beautiful scenery. Here we stopped for 10 minutes to step out of the railway for pictures. Can you see Chloè by the window too? ☺️
  • The sun doesn’t rise till around 9am, so it gave me a lot of time to sleep in. Flåm is a small village in southwestern Norway, in an area known for its fjords. It sits at the end of Aurlandsfjord. It’s peaceful, its historical, it’s quiet and it’s not a place you will find all over social media. I found these little red cabins while walking around the small village trying not to slip on the ice that covers the road! I did though, I slipped, laughed got bruised and luckily my camera didn’t fall into the water... but it was so close!
  • I’ve found Kattegat ♥️
  • I was always in a hurry to be someone, always in a hurry to become something and do everything. I didn’t waste my time on things or people that would get me nowhere. I crave a slow life, a simple life filled with adventures. No fast cars or expensive homes and for almost all my life, I’ve built a life in which I never needed to escape from. This is my beautiful reality and this photo represents that to me.
  • I was thinking of a caption that can relate to what I was thinking... but the truth is, simple... I was thinking of absolutely nothing at all... just the fact that I was waking up in the middle of a frozen sea. ♥️
  • Gelato for breakfast and it’s melting!! An obvious one ofcourse 😊 That was my next hunt for ‘inspiration in finding a little bit of Italy in the UAE’  project with @theitalianwayuae How many times a day would you have Gelato in Italy? For me, it was around 4-5!! #TheItalianWay
  • I have tremendous respect and admiration for people who are authentic and those who always recognize the people who help them during their journey... let’s try not to forget these people. Happy Sunday!
  • A place where I always can’t get enough of. Who would you go to Maldives with?
  • What moon? So here is the sun. ☀️ Can you find it? 
Did you manage to capture the super-blue-blood moon wherever you are?
