Travel with TJD to Maldives – A mini Series part 4Like2

Travel with TJD part 4 – A mini series in Maldives kicked off on the 9th of June for 4 nights at Coco Bodu Hithi with 8 wonderful new guests and this time, our theme was celebrating women and their success! Each one of these wonderful women achieved something extra-ordinary in their lives and they are inspiring. The selection process took 2 months and was based on their personality, their achievement, the way they are around strangers, how they engage with their followers and what we can learn from each other. We also, for the first time, hosted a competition for a follower to win a trip with us and had over 200 entries from across the globe! Maya Toubia’s name was randomly selected and I could not be happier of our pick! Her charismatic charm and personality won the hearts of everyone on the island and quickly became one of my favorite people that makes me laugh! Thank you to flydubai who partnered up with Travel Junkie Diary and flew the 8 guests to Maldives on business class. Thank you to Coco Resorts for being the official partner and inviting us to stay 4 nights at their beautiful Residence Water Villas.

Our days were  filled with activities from 8am to 8pm! Travel with TJD is an experiential trip where guests experience one thing (or 2 or 5) new in their lives, tick off the bucket list or something they never imagined doing!

From snorkeling with turtles to swimming with sharks, it was a first time experience for everyone, and yes, everyone dived into the open waters where 9 sharks where swimming right under us and we were swimming with them. Carefully curating the 4 days, we included almost everything you can do on the island even when it would face the occasional rain showers. Thanks to Lisa, the resident marine biologist at Coco Bodu Hithi, we were also able to discover the island by water and learned a lot about those beautiful creatures under the sea! Everyone was also offered a 60 minute balinese massage by the award winning spa at Coco Spa and a scavenger hunt around the island was planned for the winners to receive a facial as well!

The 4 days were spent in the sun even when it would rain on us and our nights eating away at every restaurant on the island. Clarins Middle East gifted each guest a travel kit pack that included the summer essentials for our skin. 

Travel with TJD is a mini series that was created a year ago and first launched in Sri Lanka. Maldives is our 4th edition. Guests from all over the world are invited. The most important thing we try to create is learning from each other. The way we always learn from strangers when asking for directions.
