WHAT MAKES THIS TRIP SPECIAL

Craving for constant adventure got me this far! For the first time of our Travel with TJD mini series that I curate, I will opening this special beyond the arctic circle trip to anyone who wants to join and experience the journey I have personally experienced during my trip to Finland. I will be partnering up with Skafur Tour, who works with the most authentic lappish families and suppliers in Finland giving you the true experience in Lapland. Everything in our journey will be based on sustainability travel, historical journeys, a true culinary lappish 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 how I traveled to 87 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

” Dear Michelle, I Wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for probably one of the most wonderful trips I’ve ever gone on. Everything was so meticulously organised, the hotels were beautiful, the company was fantastic and the adventures were on another level. I got the chance to do things I’ve always dreamt of doing, especially the husky safari, so thank you for that and for everything. Sending you love and kisses and hope to see you soon.   “

” My Latest trip to Finland with TJD was one of the best experiences of my life. It was a mixture of adventure, beauty, fun. The group was incredible and we all quickly became good friends. The subzero temperatures was a challenge but pushed our limits and we did the most amazing activities. I don’t mind not have seen the lights due to weather but my whole arctic experience topped it and I would definitely go back with TJD if she organizes another trip!”

Tamara Antaki

” I never thought of traveling to Finland before but what an awesome and exciting experience it turned out to be! I was mesmerised by the awe-inspiring beauty of the wilderness. Also, I had one of the most exciting times exploring and enjoying the snow activities, my favourite being the husky sledge ride, despite the freezing cold weather! Indeed it was a trip of a lifetime. “

Samar Sadik

” Exploring the wonders of the Arctic has been one of the MOST incredible experiences I’ve had. What struck me the most about this stunning winter wonderland was how utterly peaceful it was. Whilst there are so many exciting things to learn, experience and explore, you can also just disconnect and enjoy the beauty of nature, and be one with your thoughts. Finland has definitely found a place in my heart and I will return soon. If you love pushing your boundaries and are an explorer at heart, then this magical destination is for you.”

” I have always been wanting to travel Finland and when you posted about it I directly booked. I had at some point in my life do a trip that took me out of my comfort zone and I actually did. The whole trip was very well organized ,the activities from the shoe-snowing till that husky ride and so on. Even getting good contact with nature at -27. Traveling with strangers is quite challenging , but we made a good team all of us! The flow was good since the beginning , we all made good efforts getting to know each other and I honestly believe new friendships are being built. It wasn’t easy for you but you made everything smooth. I would definitely try a new country again with TJD. Discovering the world is what I want to do. Thank you michelle and I hope we get to fly soon together.”

Meena Mukhi

” I absolutely loved the trip. Well, where do I begin? This trip to winter wonderland with Michelle & Dennis was an incredible experience for me. I had a wonderful time. It was the first time I travel alone and naturally I was reluctant and quite nervous. But almost instantly and before we even boarded our flight from Dubai, 9 stranger travel companions felt like family. Mich not only put together a great itinerary for this full of adventure trip, she also went shopping with me for it. During the trip, she joined on all the activities, watched out for us and took great photos of all of us. She made us all feel like family. Dennis was absolutely amazing, full of life and enthusiasm, he taught us many photography tricks and helped us take great shots of the trip. Not only did this trip put me out of my comfort zone, it awakened the adventurous spirit in me. I would travel with this same bunch anywhere, anytime and am sure I’ll always feel at home.”

  • Woke up this morning feeling a sudden disconnection.
There’s power in disconnection.
When you separate yourself from the world for a while, you’ll figure out what’s feeding ur soul, what’s entertaining ur ego, what’s nothing but a distraction... and then you find exactly where your alignment is.
  • Happy whatever f**** day it is 🤷‍♀️
  • Someone said to me “The strong woman you are becoming will cost you people, relationships, spaces, outings and material things. Always choose her over everything!” And so, I did. 💫
  • I’ve always thought you should be able to freeze time... This way you could hit the pause button at a really good point in your life so that nothing changes. 
Being in the Arctic. Pause. 
Happy Sunday 💫
  • I read something today that says “what you hide in your heart... shows in your eyes” and I smiled. I’m counting down the days to be able to say, we made it through the storm. 
I’m optimistic about our future and the future of our business... and pray we all find that place of peace where the chaos inside of us is understood... Whoever you are, wherever you are.

  • In the midst of chaos with what’s happening around the world, I hope you always find the courage to keep living and love deeply in a world that is slowly failing to do so... 💫
  • Before taking off on our TJD series, I got the chance to enjoy a family break at Zaya Nurai thanks to @experiencemuse. MUSE had curated this bespoke experience, knowing that part of unwinding for me, is spending quality time with my family. Can’t wait to meet our new guest travelers in Finland!  #experienceMUSE
  • “The question is not how to get cured, but how to live... for she was always fighting a battle but her smile would never tell you so... and that’s how she created Neverland”
  • ‘When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes.
When you get photograph people in black and white, you photograph their soul’

Probably will delete this... but for now... I’m loving it.
  • What makes you happy? They say that every time you are happy, you are on your path. So be aware of the moments where you feel the most happiest... and hold on to it 💫
  • Shoutout to all the shy, introverted, empathic, social awkward souls who are pushing past their comfort zone to share love with the world and detaching themselves from fearful thoughts and using their energy to believe instead of worrying. 👊🏻
  • Due to popular demand, we have decided to launch yet another @travelwithtjd trip last minute on the 26-30th March 2020!! Chasing the Northern lights on an adventure of a lifetime to end the winter season!
