Recently, I was approached by so many of you asking me how many nights is ‘enough’ in Maldives and when is the best time to go? I would always say depends…Do you get bored easily? Do you not like the silence? What is it you are looking for?

Having been to Maldives a few too many times, different weather forecast plays a major role on our trip. But after a few times of having rain fall on us and waiting impatiently for it to pass, we learned that there are other things you can do in Maldives to Survive the rain.

Surviving Rain in Maldives

In the moment

We heard it so many times before and we try and implement it in our daily repertoire but the honest truth is that the fast pace life, the social media and tech doesn’t make it easy at all. You are in the Maldives. Islands of infinite water life and the ‘far away land’ that most people dream of. Watch the rain from your room with the windows open, read a book in bed and just watch be in the moment.

Try different cuisines

Having a wide variety of restaurants in the hotel has to be on the top 3 of the reasons to pick a certain hotel. For rainy days, you get to try different cuisines and even learn to cook!

Take a walk in the rain

Why wouldn’t you anyway? Hotels provides rain coats and umbrellas and when it rains, life goes on… It’s so therapeutic and calm.

Book a Yoga class

Find some quiet time and let it go. Let go of all that matters and the things that didn’t. There is no such thing as balanced life. Don’t look for it. Just try and focus on working on your peace.

Have a massage

One of the greatest stress reliever is booking your one hour (or more) spa session. The second greatest thing is the one hour of detox therapy after that! The best thing about it, you wont be feeling guilty about missing out some sun!

  • Last couple of days at work before heading back home 🇱🇧. What are your summer plans? Anything exciting?
  • Your memory feels like home to me.
So whenever my mind wanders, it always finds its way back to you 💫
  • Someone at work asked me the other day what my goals were... I told them to be happy. To be really really really F**** happy. What’s yours?
  • How much time do you spend planning for a trip? I still can’t get over the beautiful sunsets I’ve been lucky to experience on the island. I’ve also written two blog posts on guides to Menorca and what to watch out for prior booking. 
I do usually spend a lot of time on research for my trips, months in advance and, for this specific trip, it was a little challenging finding a place to stay that matched what I was exactly looking for. 
The search engine that worked well for me was @wegoarabia - as for flights, I didn’t have too many options from Barcelona but it worked out well. I mixed it between hotel stay and private villa stay for my 10 nights. Booked a car and took it really easy at the end!
  • I’m aware that I posted this photo before, but... there are no rules here... the Arctic has quickly become my comfort zone. 
Our business and being an entrepreneur in today’s world on @travelwithtjd was featured in an incredible article on @entmagazineme (link in bio to read the full story) written by the incredible @thisisaby on how I started @tjdhospitality , my goals, my passion and dedication to what I truly believed in... and nothing stood in my way... It continues beautifully on the chapter how @dennisstever and I created our mini series to launch @travelwithtjd and the future... and I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did. 
One day it will just click. You realize what's important and what isn't, you learn to care less about what other people think of you and care more about what you think of yourself. You realize how far you have come and remember thinking that things were in such a mess they'd never recover.. and then you smile. You smile because you are truest proud of yourself and the person you have fought to become. 
Never forget who has helped you in the past or who kept believing in you when you stopped. 💫
  • I’m not into small talk... so show me your soul. Let’s our minds connect, let’s us just be who we really are and say how it is... or, just say nothing at all.
  • A small town in Menorca, a 30 minute drive into this beautiful town. Long sandy beaches and little houses built around the sides of the bay overlooking the sea. I had to stop the car every minute and step out and appreciate the empty beaches and how incredibly happy I was deciding to visit this beautiful island despite taking a long time on my research! 
Thank you to @hertz.uae for always making it so easy to rent a car and for adding my skywards miles while booking with you 😊
  • One of the most beautiful beach strip in Menorca. I definitely love quiet beaches, and here tends to be crowded and popular, but it was still so comfortable and an exciting vibe to it.
  • There is a legend of Cova d’en Xoroi, a story of a pirate name Xoroi, who abandoned his ship, discovered this cave and found refuge here. 
Xoroi then abducted a woman from the village, fell in love and married her and had kids. 
One day, in winter, the island was covered with unexpected snow, and armed men found footprints into the cave and found the women with her 3 sons. 
Xoroi was surrounded and powerless and jumped into the water from the cliff, and his eldest son followed him and his wife returned to the village. 
What happened after that is a mystery...
  • What are your road trips tips!? For me, I always love keeping strawberries and blueberries & a playlist that has to include Ben Howard.
It’s been a crazy 2 weeks on the road, first in Finland with over 16 hours road trips and now in Menorca doing the same on a much smaller scale, exploring the island in our family van that we rented from @hertz.uae And earn Skywards Miles 😊
What are your smooth road trip tips?
  • Cala Galdana is definitely one of my favorite beaches. They told me that this tiny island of Menorca has more beaches that Ibiza and Mallorca put together. 
Do you have a favorite beach in Spain?
  • I’ve left Finland a week ago, flew directly to Spain from there and landed in this beautiful island of Menorca. The neighboring island of Mallorca and Ibiza. Decided to stay couple of days in @meliacalagaldana to get these views and visit the beaches to the south and then moved further North of the island into a private villa for the rest of my trip. Have you been to Menorca before?
