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.

  • It’s the possibility of having all my dreams come true that makes my life so beautiful - Yet, it doesn’t mean that I don’t get to miss some certain moments like this one. In the middle of Laikipia - I left my heart ♥️
  • We’ll always find our way back to each other 💫
  • There is a sandstorm in Dubai at the moment, so I decided to look back at my photos from @constancehotels during my trip to Mauritius 🇲🇺Also, a few of you asked me about the weather, and how the forecast shows that it’s always raining in Mauritius... don’t look at that! The forecast was wrong all week! We had sunny days and clear skies up until the day I left ☀️ So my rule of thumb is: Don’t look at the forecast 😊
  • Last year, I did a little sailing through the Balkans from Montenegro - Have you been yet? It’s beautiful!!! ☀️
If you are planning a trip to there this summer, I’ve posted an itinerary list of things to do in Montenegro! Link in bio!
  • Summer is approaching and I can’t wait! Throwback on this Sunday to my last summer in Croatia! Have you planned your summer vacation yet?
  • As we sometimes give all the love we have to others... we sometimes forget to love ourselves more. I’ve been on a little roller coaster ride the past few days... it’s a good reminder on how I need to listen to my body. Each one of us might be fighting a battle that no one probably knows of, or will ever know, so its always important to give people a break from time to time and let them just be. 💫
  • Mauritius and all its beauty 🇲🇺☀️ @constancehotels
  • The hardest kind of resistance is when you’re resisting yourself. When your heart wants something and your brain prevents it. When you feel like sometimes you want to explode but you don’t. Its not always pretty but you keep going because, everything that is meant to be yours, will be yours.

  • 6am wake up call 🇲🇺 @Constancehotels  #myconstancemoment
  • Good morning! It’s actually raining today but, here is the beautiful day I checked into @constancehotels Prince Maurice. I tried to aim for a grand entrance here 😊 Have a beautiful day everyone!
  • Sailed across the islands until we reached the Ile aux Phare built in 1864 and had to see how it looked from above!!
  • She never wants to leave she says, and asks me every day how much longer are we staying in Mauritius @shangrilamauritius ☀️
I totally get it - We even had chocolate wrap massages together and she slept through it all! 😂
