  • You loved her because you saw all her magic... she loved you because you reminded her of it when she’s forgotten it... 💫
  • We just had a long 3 day weekend in the UAE and I LOVED it! 
I’m thinking of starting a global petition where we can have 3 day weekend all over the world! 
What do you think? Wouldn’t you LOVE a 3 day weekend!?
  • Truth: I’ve come to terms a long time ago that, if you are not motivating me, praying for me, loving me, inspiring me or trying to build with me... then, you are a distraction. 
For a long time I’ve felt the pressure of social media and I’ve learnt to deal with it. 
We live in a society that is continuously looking for happiness, dreams and goals out there for the next best thing to feel ‘happiness’ and ‘social acceptance’ but, we seem to forget that we are ALIVE, and that is all we need right now. 
If you agree leave a ♥️. Thank you for being with me throughout all these years.
  • Right this second, where I am... and where I want to be and it’s f*** incredible ♥️

Make sure you follow @travelwithtjd to join our Travel Adventure Travel Movement. 
Thank you @dennisstever for this lovely picture ♥️
  • Are you a beach person or a mysterious desert lover?? I have to admit I love the beach but the desert has its own magic too! 😊
Back in the desert 🌵 and it’s hot but I can’t wait for the weather to start cooling off here! Which one do you love more?
  • What’s your favorite animal? Mine is the elephant. 
Those who know me well, know how I constantly talk about the dark side to elephant tourism that many people just don’t seem to be aware of… but you need to know this! 
Elephants are endangered species and should be in the wild, and the ONLY way to ride an elephant is by taming it with a process which is called Phajaan, or “the crush”.
It involves ripping baby elephants away from their mothers and confining them in a very small space, like a cage or hole in the ground where they’re unable to move with them tied down. Check it out on YouTube. 
So please don’t ride elephants, at any cost, ride bicycles instead. 
This photo was taken in an elephant sanctuary in North of Thailand in 2016
May the power of a thousand elephants give you the strength to face the troubles ahead. ♥️
  • I’m curious to know... Where is the best sunset you’ve ever seen? ♥️
  • People always say: “Make sure you get a job doing what you love!’’ But that isn’t the best advice. 
The right job is the job you love some days, can tolerate most days, and still pays the bills. Almost nobody has a job they love every single day and that is ok because that’s what it means to be human ♥️ #infinitilebanon #Q30
  • Believe me, with the crazy errands I’m running around for today, I wouldn’t mind dropping it all and being back here where my only concern would be tan lines 😊 Who is with me? 😊
Happy Friday!! ❤️
  • Leaving Lebanon is never easy. Thank you for those with insane magic in them, those who danced through the nights till the mornings with me, those who took road trips with me, those who loved me, those who ate ice cream with me every day, those who made efforts to see me, those who competed with me for the best tan lines and for those friends who always were undeniably themselves with me. You know who you are ♥️🇱🇧
  • When you follow a feeling to the very end, all your dreams will come true! Inside peek at Giraffe Manor in Kenya 🇰🇪
