What makes this trip so special

Craving for constant adventure got me this far! Our Travel with TJD mini series to Sweden into the wilderness is an adventure of a lifetime, filled with adventures and a sense of peace, both at the same time. On this trip, we explore the wilderness in Sweden, hunt for northern lights, experience the icebreaker cruise and of course, the iconic ice fishing experience and husky safari where you get to drive your own husky and most of all, taste the culinary cuisine the arctic has to offer! Almost everything throughout our journey will be based on sustainability travel, historical journeys, a true culinary arctic experience and an intense off the beaten path adventure! I will also be sharing a little bit of my story on how I turned my passion into a business and will also be available to help you with any questions you might have prior the trip and during!

This trip is purely experiential and adventure and is open to all those who are ready to drop everything, for a chance to get out there and explore the polar journey!

TESTIMONIALS

“A big thanks to you Michelle for assisting me and taking care of me during and before the trip. From hotel arrangements, to visas, to sailing gear and even the fun activities you have prepared for us. You are very professional and always available for all my questions regarding my trip. I had a lovely time in Norway and I would not have enjoyed this trip without your amazing support. Doing business with you is really hassle free and everything has been so smooth. I will recommend you to all my friends who are planning their vacation trips and I, for sure, will be be back again on your TJD trips”

“Overall it was an amazing experience! At first I was not sure about the two boats instead of one, but honestly, it really worked out for the best and I genuinely loved the catamaran experience and visiting the island and seeing the stars at sea the most. I could have definitely done it for a few more nights even!! I think, I’m discovering a new passion with the whole sailing, it was really great that I got to learn and assist with some of it, gave me such a buzz! I also loved the reindeer and learning about the Sami culture and the ‘YOIK’ “

Mona, London

“Thank you so much for having me and giving people new realities as you say! Living your dream! You see incredible in others because of who you are yourself, so we are so incredible, changing other people’s world, each one of us in our own special way! Thank you! Love you! “

Martina, Spain

“Lovely Michelle,
Never would I have thought I would go on a group trip. Nor, did I expect that this would be one of the best trips I have done so far. This trip has exceeded my expectations and was beyond unforgettable! Your enthusiasm, positive energy, efforts and care before within and even after the trip, have made a massive impact on everyone and have been an inspiration to me on a personal level. You really put your heart and soul in to what you do and have shown that you CAN make your dreams come true and that makes me chase mine! Also, not to forget the incredible selection of the guests. I made some amazing friends through this amazing little journey and we all shared an unforgettable experience. As you kept saying “It’s an experience” and I would recommend everyone to experience a TJD trip themselves! Keep shining! Much love “

  • I’ve posted this photo many times and it’s still one of my favorite moments.
I listened to a podcast yesterday and it resonated with me so much on the topic of earning trust in the corporate world “Earning trust: consistency in your behavior - trust is developed and established through consistency in behavior” 
I’ve often said that if you have so much moodiness in your life, you will lack leadership and trust, It’s something I truly believe in people. If you want to earn trust, be consistent in your behavior, in your choices and your words... most importantly, in what you believe in... otherwise, people will pull back. Think about that for your Thursday mood :)
  • It’s been a while since I’ve done a just “pick up and go”. The picture I took from outside my room is a reminder of that time in Kenya. Yep, it’s a giraffe.
Lately, everything has been so planned and that spontaneous “go” is something I sort of miss. 
There are definitely few things I’d want to do... for example drive a motorhome somewhere far far away, surf in the arctic... re-visit Kenya... explore Latin America...those are just few of the things. 
If you were to pick up and go, where would you go and what would you do?
  • Summer in @ourfinland was one of my highlights of 2019. On a mission with @travelwithtjd - we explored the south coast and witness the magic of the midnight sun while driving North West. 
From cabin life by the lake, to glass houses by the sea. We hiked, went on road trips, went island hopping, ate a LOT, took ATVs, did BBQs and jumped into the lake!
Join @dennisstever and I on our @travelwithtjd Finland Summer Series on the 21st of June - 26th June 2020, as we take you through the coast and into the wilderness and experience the summer activities that Finland has to offer.

  • I was always in a hurry to be someone, always in a hurry to become something and do everything I set my mind to. I didn’t waste my time on things or people that would get me nowhere. 
But, 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 almost never needed to escape from. I’ve started my year with intentions to keep me grounded... and I intend to focus more on them. 
This is my beautiful reality and this photo represents that to me.
  • I’ve had the privilege of meeting incredible humans on our @travelwithtjd trips. 
I'm constantly learning from my mistakes and from others and I'm slowly acquiring patience and acceptance. 
I’ve met empowering souls who braved the arctic and chose to kick their fear to the curb and go on a life changing journey with us. 
I can’t help but be so grateful and in love with everything they have given and taught me, and that’s how I remember 2019. Through those I’ve met on our TJD trips, through their support. 
My message to them now is this: 
I know... that just because you carry your load well, doesn’t  mean its not heavy... So, choose wisely. 
Choose yourself first. 
Love strong and fiercely. 
Love with everything that you have. 
Don’t follow rules, break away from expectations. I'm changing...I'm growing... and I always chose to live the life I’ve always dreamed of, and not what others expect of me. 
Be fearless. Always remember that mental connection is stronger than physical attraction. 
And most of all, be a giver, but never one without boundaries... Happy 2020. 
Love, Michelle
  • Say what’s in your heart, always... 💫
Merry Christmas everyone, to you and your loved ones. 🎄
  • To my teachers: Almost every time I practice with you, you’ll find me with tears streaming down my face, a huge release of pent up, stored up, bottled up energy and emotion. 
For the longest time, my practice with you asked me to look at the parts of myself that I would rather ignore or forget about. Whether its the mental stress from my daily life or the emotional pain. My practice reveals what is happening inside me when I can’t put it in words because I’m simply built that way. 
And, sometimes we have more turbulence inside us than we realize. 
But, not all tears are necessarily sad; they can also be an indication just overwhelmed emotions rolling through us, but in the end, it’s liberating and powerful. 
My Ashtanga practice asked me to show up and bravely look it all in the eye and, sometimes, its brutal but you taught me that the practice is about showing up courageously regardless and pushing to the very end. 
Sometimes that means I leave practice on a cloud and sometimes I leave feeling a bit vulnerable, but it taught me more about myself so that I can choose to live the life I was designed to, to be my brightest true self.

Thank you for giving me a space to call my own, where in a room filled with beautiful, warm, humble yogis, I am able to feel like I’m the only one in the room. 
Thank you for accepting me for who I truly am. 
Thank you Anna, a yogi who always practices near me, and although I’m in total meditation throughout my practice, I feel your presence. 
And most of all thank you for being the greatest mentors in my life. 🥰
  • Et puis un jour, on s'en fout...
Et ça fait du bien...
  • As we give all the love that we have to others... we often forget to love ourselves a little more, so, here is a little reminder... Don’t forget to give a little extra more love for you today and do the things that sets your soul on fire. ☺️ Have a beautiful Tuesday!! 🥰

  • For the longest time, I’ve been addicted to the sea. I’ve dedicated most of my passion for under water diving, kite surfing and being in flip flops. 
Asia was a huge part of my childhood and growing up to this day, I would only picture my future home in front of the ocean. But today, the ocean would maybe be the Arctic one. 
And now, I look back, only because it’s gratifying to do so. To see how far I have grown to love something totally the opposite but equally the same adventure of emotions. 
My goals? To be happy. To be really really happy. That’s all I ever want. 💫
  • The Arctic has become my comfort zone. A place where I can easily and happily go to re-align my thoughts. 
It helped me 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, soulmates and soul friends. 
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 and anything. 
If the Arctic gave me that peace of mind, how can I ever leave? 💫
