Weekends in Dubai

22nd January 2015 – 24th January 2015

This weekend in Dubai, I can’t believe I have added mostly food related topics. Of-course, the Market OTB is still open and such a lovely atmosphere early mornings before the crowd. We loved the Jam Jar sessions with paintings and all things art. I have warned you though, you will be over spending. Sometimes, these markets tend to forget the real reason why people have street markets… for the bargain and good food. You won’t particularly find a good bargain there but definitely worth a visit!

1. Dine at TR!BECA Kitchen 

A  New York inspired lifestyle hotspot featuring healthy and organic food, whilst showcasing local entertainment and an endless display of artistic home-grown talent opens in JBR, Dubai that serves healthy and organic food and beverage options in a lounge bar environment, is set to take place on Friday 23rd, January, 2014 for a VIP private launch. The TR!BECA kitchen is headed by award winning Chef Giovanni De Ambrosis, who passionately couples exquisite food with artistic form, hailing inspiration from Mediterranean cultures and fusing them with American Contemporary Cuisine.

Where: Tribeca, Kitchen & Bar Level 1, Ocean View Hotel, The Walk, Jumeirah Beach Residence

When: Opens Friday 24th January 2015

The Jetty Lounge is not a restaurant as such but an elegant beachside bar. A sunset beach bar with lounges and soft music. Take advantage of the ‘freezing’ weather.

5. Food Festival at Perry & Blackwelder’s Original Smoke House

The fair, which is free of charge to attend, is a buckle-down celebration of all things meat. Expect food stalls with wings tossed four ways, smoky sliders including short rib and turkey and barbecue platters of P&B’s signature brisket, turkey and hot wings. With side orders of live country music from Wes Hayden and his band, fun and games for all the family and specially-sourced craft hops and rye, the fair is a true taste of the Deep South’s most-loved traditions. From 5-10pm, Sunday to Thursday and 2-10pm, Friday and Saturday, Pitmaster Lawrence Wells and his team will showcase the USA’s Deep South barbecue heritage from which the restaurant draws its inspiration. Harnessing the traditional technique of cooking meat for long periods of time at low temperatures with smoke from a wood fire – this is not barbecue as you know it.

Where: Perry & Blackwelder’s Original Smoke House at Souk Madinat Jumeirah
When: Thursday 22nd January for 10 days

  • They say, reality is a projection of your thoughts. I’ve dreamed about sailing north of the arctic for years... I never doubted for a second that it would not happen ‘one day’ but, nothing every prepared me for what I’m experiencing on this trip witnessing the magic of the midnight sun!! I’ve seen and felt things I never imagined existed or at least only on @natgeotravel magazines. This is the start of my 3 day journey sailing in the arctic! 💫

I’m also very excited to announce our new partnership with @pukkatravels for our next @travelwithtjd #TravelWithTJD in October and now, you can join me too! Information will be up tonight on the link in bio!
  • I know escapism is real to so many of us... but you can’t escape yourself and, travel won’t be the answer, so learn to love every single weakness and strength you have because no matter where you go, your thoughts go with you... nothing will disappear just because you can’t see what’s going on. 💫
  • There is something so incredibly special and cozy about boutique hotels that I love so much... like @constancehotels - Do you prefer large resorts or boutique properties?
  • We all have different reasons for forgetting to breathe... and most of us are breathing the best way we can... I think I’m ready to get back out there 💫
  • It’s the ‘have you seen the way he looks at her’ kind of love I have with you 💫
  • What do you see? It’s so easy to fall in love with landscapes and nature in Sweden. I know some of you have realized my insane fascination with Scandinavia but I just can’t help it. Maybe it’s because I am familiar with isolation and I embrace it so well... It keeps my creativity as fierce as ever and it never gets lonely. Maybe it’s because I love the adventure and photography so much... I’m not sure what it is. 
This is called The Mirrorcube - camouflaged mirrored walls reflecting the surrounding. I can’t wait to return!
  • This simply makes me smile! Happy Sunday everyone! Can you spot the baby giraffe? 😊
  • I’m sorting out my summer plans today and added Portugal again! I’m excited to be going back and exploring more landscapes, culture, food, sailing and the incredible nightlife! There is a whole article on my last trip and guides on my website! What are your summer plans?
  • I gave you a heart stronger than a thousand warriors... but it will take you years to learn that not everyone loves like you do... 💫
  • Not bad for a view outside my room window! She looks like she’s waiting for me to come out and play ☺️ - What do you think?
  • Looking back at the exact same time last year on a #TravelwithTJD team trip to Tokyo with @ritzcarlton - This was the view from my beautiful room. One of the most beautiful places I’ve been to! Have you been to Japan? I’ve got lots of articles and guides on the blog!
  • I spent my morning with @fourseasons worldwide team at @fsdubaidifc for breakfast and it was so wonderful to learn more about their new and existing projects, but here is a memory taking me back to Maldives. Isn’t the Maldives just an incredible place!?
