Spring Break Holidays with the FamilyLike0

 There’s magic in the air in every season! Got my winter boots back into the ‘winter closet’ and my mind is set for the summer. I’m even on a strict (not so strict) food allowance diet to fit in my freepeople swim suit that I got maybe 10 years ago! Yep, giving birth did change me alright! Anyway, let’s not get carried away with that now and let’s focus on some wonderful Spring Break Holidays with the Family and friends this year! Travel to all sorts of places with your kids! It teaches them so much. Make a point to squeeze in some time for that…not only that bikini you held on for 10 years! Here are Spring Break Holidays with the Family ideas.

1. TanzaniaFrom the Great Migration to spectacular African sunsets, parents looking to share the excitement of wildlife spotting with their children can now combine animal sightings with no end of engaging activities at Four Seasons Safari Lodge Serengeti, with the launch of the new Big Five Family Safari package.

Over five fun-filled days, the Safari Lodge is offering families the opportunity to discover the very best of the Serengeti, linking daily activities directly to the “big five” animals to ensure a magically memorable stay. To help families make the most of their vacation, the Big Five Family Safari package offers a day by day guideline itinerary, including a hot air balloon safari, planting camera traps around the Lodge’s grounds and for the little ones, making Maasai toothbrushes from local trees.

3- Ascona, Switzerland  Time for family – a short break with grandma and grandpa at the Hotel Eden Roc Ascona. As soon as the temperatures begin rising and the first of the sun’s rays light the new day, the spirits awaken and the little ones are bursting with energy and raring to go. All too often, however, we are tied down by our daily routine and there just isn’t enough time to do anything with the children. Nevertheless, grandparents often lend a helping hand. To let them enjoy a relaxing yet eventful time with their grandchildren, the Hotel Eden Roc in Ascona now offers the “Time for family” special. The offer includes two nights’ accommodation with breakfast and resort dine around as well as a free upgrade from a deluxe double room to a family suite. And while the grandparents relax in the 2,000 square metres of the Eden Roc Spa, a wide range of activities await the little ones including a scavenger hunt using mobile phones, balancing on the slackline, horse riding to the nearby Maggia River, a pirate day on the pirate ship, make-up and dancing lessons, the chance to become a director for the day and to shoot a short film about the holidays and much more besides. The offer is available from 740 Swiss francs (approx. 690 euros) per adult and is free for children up to the age of three. Children up to the age of 14 are charged 60 Swiss francs per night (approx. 55 euros) including resort dine around until 28 March 2015 and 100 Swiss francs (approx. 93 euros) from 27 March to 4 June 2015.

  • Someone told me that I’m still glowing from my recent @travelwithtjd arctic trip. 
It put a huge smile on my face... because It’s true... I still feel it, that happiness and high... but I was also told that I wear my heart on my sleeve so, my ‘glow’ is inevitable. 
We fall in love with the person we become when we travel to places that sets your soul on fire... And you would do anything to hold on to it. 
Heading back to Lebanon for my last dose of winter & snowboarding with family & friends before heading back to the salty waters and flip flops. 
Have a beautiful week everyone and thank you for following along 💫
  • I’m not sure why I love this first picture a lot. It’s one of those things you can’t explain. 
I’ve always looked at rear view mirrors as walking away from something (Not necessarily bad) towards something greater that might or might not work and it’s somewhat comforting. 
I’m someone who loves their own space and comfortable on my own, most of the time at least. 
I’ve had times where things didn’t always go my way instantly but I knew it eventually will fall into place, and, it always does. 
I might have fallen flat on my face sometimes, and have underestimated my own capabilities in some moments... but, I’m more confident of my choices than I was when I first started my journey and what made me even braver, was my willingness to live up to these moments because in the end, it was all worth it.

  • We all crave isolation from time to time to get disconnected from whatever it is that keeps us awake at night. 
To just go, and say nothing and think nothing. 
We hope in the end that whatever you love always loves you back. The sami believes that when you are in nature, you are never afraid of being alone. 
Returning from a ‘letting go’ place such as the wilderness in Finland affects me emotionally and sets me off balance a little, because my happiness was always about following my heart, and so, I try to find my way back from a place of reality that is even far better than my dreams. #TravelwithTJD @travelwithtjd
  • What an incredible emotional 10 days this has been! I’ve met the funniest, warmest and the most caring, thoughtful people on this @travelwithtjd and it’s so difficult say goodbye. We have created our own reality - pushed boundaries - fell in love with life - and set ourselves free from all judgments on ourselves. I’ll post more on stories and photos as soon as I land back home 💫
Thank you @hertz.uae for having such great service during our trip!
  • On this @travelwithtjd trip, I’m surrounded with people that makes me forget where my phone is, makes me laugh till my stomach hurts, help each other when you can’t feel your hands from the cold and makes my heart so full and filled with love, and we all know how much I love love ☺️. I’m back in Finland, creating our own realities with some of the most incredible people I have ever met. #travelwithtjd
  • From Tromso, to Dubai for a couple of days and now back to Finland for our next @travelwithtjd - I had few friends over at home yesterday for lunch @theitalianwayuae to say goodbye, leaving for almost 13 days but never thought leaving my little puppy was going to be this difficult!
  • On our last @travelwithtjd to Norway, we left @radissonblutromso to set sail in the Arctic in search of the Northern Lights and to experience sailing and sleeping out in the wilderness. 
4 nights and we were faced with an incredible storm, high winds, lots of rain and clouds but it didn’t stop some of us from dancing, fishing and sailing. That’s the real Arctic weather!
It was a mind blowing adventure and testing each one’s capabilities of being comfortable in uncomfortable situations. 
That’s what an adventure is really all about. Especially in the beautiful arctic. ❤️
  • I honestly didn’t know how to caption this story because there is a thousand words I want to say and a thousand reasons not to. 
This image speaks to me and I’ve imagined it and orchestrated in my head a thousand times and @dennisstever helped me capture it perfectly. 
It’s a liberating feeling to be able to stand at the edge with a cape with extreme wind and rain in your face and feel like a superhero. 
We are our own heroes. Not because we are about to change the world....But to change inside of us who struggle to make one small difference in their lives for themselves every day. 
I’m the type of girl who will have tears of joy or sadness running down my face and still insist that everything is fine. My glory isn’t just in the achievements, but in the sacrifices I have made to save myself. This is what this story image represents to me.

  • We are spoon fed with quotes on social media on the fake realm of positivity and sometime too much of it. 
The truth is, why should we avoid difficult situations? Why should we not get heartbroken? 
To be surrounded by ONLY positive people and those who ONLY inspire you is unrealistic and a recipe for not growing or truly finding out who you are. 
Because you will come across people in your life that can suck out the energy out of you and you will only learn to block them and manage your reaction when you have had a share of experiences. 
It takes real courage to stop pretending you have it all together and accept the challenges and grow. 
If we can allow ourselves to face it; we will experience life to its fullest. 
Being human means facing suffering. There is no light without dark, no joy without sadness. 
If we don’t experience all feelings, we have no basis for comparison. So accept the good and the bad without any judgement, know it’s human to feel both. 
Take your time to feel everything, but once you are done, get up, grow, break your own boundaries and not what others expects of you, and motivate yourself by learning to face and appreciating the challenges that comes your way. Too much positivity could also be lethal and not real. It’s how you learn to deal with it. 
At least that’s what I have learned, and I have felt my personal growth during those years. ❤️
  • I’ll always search for those breathless moments where I will no longer be sure if I am dreaming or awake. 
We drove in total 8 hours that day from Tromso to Senja along the coastline. I kept asking @dennisstever to pull over every 2 minutes so I can shoot but luckily he didn’t, otherwise we would have never reached here at sunset. 
Scandinavia is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to and that’s why I keep coming back and leave with a full heart... until it’s time to come back again. 
Follow our @travelwithtjd Journey and be part of our polar journeys. ❤️
  • One of the most liberating feeling in the world is being able to come back here over and over again and feeling so comfortable and happy. I took this yesterday while flying over tromso and although it was just taken with a phone camera, I think it still looks magical. I woke up at 4am today, excited to start the day, getting ready for the team of @travelwithtjd to start arriving and we set sail tomorrow in the Arctic wilderness. #travelwithtjd
  • The heaviness of the moon this month... so I say this: It’s ok if you lose yourself, I’ll be right here to help you find your way back 💫
