Craving for constant adventure got me this far!

I will also be sharing a little bit of my story on how I turned my passion into a business and how I traveled to 90 countries and will also be available to help you with your photography of the Northern Lights. 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 arctic circle!

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 am always surrounded by love (and water) because all I see is love 💕 
Happy Easter everyone!
  • A huge shift in my energy today as I start working on our next @travelwithtjd - Scandic countries holds an exhilarating amount of joy and peace in my heart, which I’ve learned not to search anymore for reasons to explain it, because some things cannot always be expressed in words. 
We have recently launched Sweden’s Arctic experience on @travelwithtjd other than Finland, Iceland and Norway. The link is in bio if you like to join our polar journeys and have an adventure of a lifetime. Only 2 spaces left for Sweden. Hope to see you on our TJD trips!

  • Sunrise view from my room facing the Athenian Riviera from @fsathens from Arion side of the building which is more laidback.
I have to admit though, it’s good to be back home and back to a routine. I tend to pick up emotions from the people and environment around me, and from time to time, it’s good to be grounded. Thank you Four Seasons for a wonderful experience and congratulations on the opening! ❤️
  • It was 18 degrees at the most one morning, and the sun was shining. Jumped on a @fsathens boat and sailed to visit the Poseidon Temple and an afternoon lunch at hidden gem by the sea with the sweetest people. I love being on boats and grew very fond on them since I was very little. ❤️
  • I was lucky enough to have had 3 sunny days in Athens before the weather turned into beautiful rain. It was a great weekend celebrating @fsathens opening. This is one of the pools at sunset from Nafsika side with private cabanas on the sides. That’s my weekend, how was yours? ☀️
  • I landed in Athens couple of days ago to celebrate the opening of @fsathens - Four Seasons Hotel Astir Palace Hotel Athens is a luxury escape resting on a peninsula along the Athens Riviera, just 30-minutes from the historic city centre. 
I ALWAYS love coming back to Greece 🇬🇷
  • I’m caption-less this morning. Might be because my mind is either overloaded or too relaxed, does this happen to you? 😊 - but here is @joalimaldives from where I drone. Happy Thursday everyone!
  • Back in Dubai for 24 hours and summer has already begun here and there is no way I can manage to have Charlie look at the camera!! My summer plans are getting together and with a little inspiration from @theitalianwayuae we are adding Italy’s coast on our itinerary as well! #TheItalianWay
What are your summer plans?
  • Located on Muravandhoo island on the Raa Atoll in the northern Maldives, @joalimaldives celebrates the ‘Joie De Vivre’ ... the joy of living, the joy of everything ❤️
  • You’ve got to find that soul friend... You’ve got to find that person. I’ve always truly believed that. 
Those which answers to these questions—does our friendship feel easy? Am I better for knowing this person? Do they help me become closer to the person I ultimately want to be? Can we be quiet together for a long time?That's the person I want to be be forever friends with. That's my soul person. Do you have yours? 💫
  • I’ve traded my snow gear to flip flops! I’m always happy to be back at @joalimaldives and since the pre-opening, it has flourished so much and the island has come alive! I’m always impressed with the incredible work they do here in attempts to save the marine life, the co-operation they do for the local islands and the incredible staff that has become good friends of mine now! ❤️
How gorgeous is this overwater villa?
  • It’s been a challenging week and the year is passing way too quick!! I’ve already started planning my summer vacation which I’m so ready for and setting new adventures for winter journeys in the arctic on @travelwithtjd - But, Portugal is always a returning choice for me this summer, especially Madeira Island. 
What are your summer plans?
