TESTIMONIALS

“Having traveled a lot and to so many destinations, we tend to under-estimate the efforts put in creating such an experience that includes so many unusual activities in the wilderness! It was not just another trip for me , it turned out to be “THE TRIP” that was incredibly fun, healing, life changing and created so many memories I will forever cherish

TJD did an incredibly beautiful job in well organizing way in advance every single detail. The genuine love and care put in this experience is noticeable and you can feel the passion for it! I wouldn’t have done it without Michelle who is the mastermind behind every single detail, activity, experience. I will definitely do it again and highly recommend TJD to organize this for you, if you are up to an unforgettable experience!

Thank you TJD team, Michelle in particular for being simply wonderful!”

Solange, Beirut

“Michelle, you were a stranger who turned into a friend, a sister, you had us experience a magical trip, you made us laugh & smile and made us cry at the end of the journey from sadness that it’s over but happiness that it happened. (It’s complicated as Joelle would say)!! Besides that you were professional, very well organized, take care of every single little detail so we felt 100% relaxed in the best hands ever!! We love you both and surely will do this again! Dennis, we wouldn’t have done it without you my friend, You are incredibly amazing & enjoyable and not to mention so patient to keep up with a crazy crowd like us! Thank you for everything! “

Darine, Lebanon

“Our experience with TJD was one of the most memorable and amazing trips for us. Michelle did a great job on what we wanted out of this trip. The accommodation was excellent and everything was done on time. We were fortunate enough to catch the stunning display of the Northern Lights – Something we will never forget! I couldn’t be happier with TJD and would definitely recommend them to all of our friends “

Hannan, UAE

“As someone who always travel solo, this was an incredible experience! The dynamic of the group worked perfectly together! Michelle took really good care of us and Dennis managed to capture all the right moments. The Itinerary was beautifully curated and it definitely exceeded all my expectations. Sleeping in the Aurora cabins, watching the stars at night was truly mind-blowing. I would travel with TJD again in a heartbeat! Thank you guys for really making it a trip of a lifetime!  “

Nahel, Syria 

“TJD’s trip to Finland was one of my most memorable trips ever. The richness of the program spanning from dog sleighing to receiving insights to how the indigenous Sami live & treasure their land, was fascinating. The competent, unhurried and loving way Michelle & Dennis managed these 5 days was very impressive. The way they organized four perfectly sunny days remain their well-guarded secret. “

Eduard & Rania, Lebanon

” The best trip ever!! Michelle & Dennis you were the highlight of the trip! It was our first experience to travel with TJD and we were pleasantly surprised with the professionalism, punctuality, dedication and fun spirit throughout the trip. Michelle & Dennis were very knowledgable about the Arctic, the activities and handpicked the itinerary! It was just a perfect vacation. I recommend this trip to everyone! If you ever want to travel hassle free and have the best time of your life just contact TJD. Michelle & Dennis, keep shining! You have put a smile on our faces and we can’t wait for our next TJD trip!  “

Farah & Wael, Lebanon

” Sleeping in a glass roofed aurora cabin under a sky full of stars, sitting on the snow and cuddling the huskies, searching-hunting and watching the northern lights …. These were on the top of my bucket list. Finally my dream came true. This was an amazing trip, I absolutely loved it!! I would like to thank the best organizers and I would book with you again and again and again.

Michelle did not only plan the trip but was involved in every single activity and thought of every small details from helping us zipping the snow gear, making sure we ate well, we slept enough, we enjoyed the activity … and stayed awake to make sure we see the aurora! She is so professional, helpful, caring, fun and positive. 

Dennis was excellent, full of life and a great motivator. He is very cool, open-minded and he never says No! He would do anything to make us happy. 

I highly recommend everyone to travel with TJD!!”

Belle, Lebanon

“Putting a face and an adventure and a beautiful experience, a one of a kind trip to this idea I had in my mind of you and your work over exceeded my expectations. Please keep doing what you do because you are doing something so awesome. A lot of others are trying to replicate and I have never tried them, but you have this extra everything. The extra touch, the extra deepness that makes everything more personal. Great teamwork  You and Dennis, it’s just the beginning and craziness and fun and love of life will always be by your side. “

  • Home at Beit Douma, this is how a traditional restored 19th century Lebanese mountain home looks like from the inside. Douma is one of the best-preserved villages in Lebanon, lies at an altitude of over 1000 meters.  The name in Phoenician means “calm and rest”, in Greek it means “house”. 🇱🇧 #Home
  • I believe in giving people time...Time to process the good and the bad because there is something so beautiful about unforced bonds. 
I’m a forever kind of person. I don’t have room for temporary. I believe in big love, of growing old with your friends and soulmates. I believe in being there for people through thick and thin. I believe in not giving up when things get tough. I believe in relationships that can make it through everything... 💫
  • Will probably delete this later but just couldn’t NOT post this video! I’ve always dreamed raising a golden retriever since I was a little girl, and in February, it became a reality. This was Charlie at 3 months and slide over the photo number 2, today at 8 months. 2 more weeks and I’ll be back with him!!! Share your advices on raising a Golden ❤️ I would love to hear your experiences.
  • 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 💕
  • Bird’s eye view from @joalimaldives 
I can never get bored of this view! 😍
  • In reality, if you really think about it, to miss someone is sort of missing a part of yourself. You miss the way you felt alive on adventures and sharing ideas... Because the right people make you want to throw away the plans you originally had, for a new one without having to say ‘hmm’ and it’s no longer forcing things... it’s been a while since I looked back at some memories in S.E Asia, It taught me so much, but also, it’s a chapter of my life that I feel I’ve closed a long time ago.
  • Passion and inspiration are so very powerful and can easily be intimidating and out of reach sometimes. 
I haven’t been able to pick up my camera yet... Which is odd because, my camera is my source of ‘connection’ to almost everything. 
Sometimes you’re just not ready... And I’m not going to push myself. I’ll try again tomorrow 😊
  • Once upon a time in Kenya 🇰🇪- I’m trying really hard remembering their names, but all that comes to mind is Sophie, I’m sure one of them is called Sophie... Not sure why? Don’t you think? 😊 
Have an incredible weekend everyone 💕
  • Sunrise in Madeira Island. 
It’s been a while since I felt inspired to pick up my camera and go. Maybe it’s the fact that, despite my love for the long summers and flip flops, I’m ready for the unknown, the Scandinavian winters, the daring adventures & new beginnings. 
I’m ready for the sleepless nights under the northern lights and the exceptional early pink sunrises. Someone special told me to learn to be where my feet is... to be present where I am at the moment... Possibly the best advice I’ve heard in a long time, but, this caption refutes it. 😊 I’ll try again tomorrow 💕
  • Not long before the grand re-opening of @gili.lankanfushi in Maldives. The island is close to my heart and we cannot wait to celebrate the opening on the 1st of December 🏖
  • At an altitude of 1800 meters... Ixsir winery in Lebanon is one of the popular winery in the country. Their Winery was named by CNN as one of the greenest building in the world, and lately won the international A+ Award. 🇱🇧
  • Looking back at some photos this morning. This was taken 3 years ago in Seychelles at @fsseychelles - Definitely one of the best views I’ve seen during my travels.
