Weekends in Dubai are never enough! A massive congratulations to #MyDubai for celebrating their 1 year anniversary! They have come such a long way in showing how beautiful the city is and their people who make Dubai what it really is today!

 

Here are few listings of things to do in Dubai

 

1. Rent a BIKY

To rent a bike,  call the hotline number you will find on the bike. A computer voice will ask you for the number of the bike you want to rent. After entering this number into your mobile phone you will get the code to open the combination lock on the bike. You will need to register though with a credit or debit card. It took us about 20 minutes to figure it out, hopefully you will sooner but it was such great fun along Kite Beach.

1 hour is 20dhs and so on…

2. Go Sand-boarding with ATS Travel

2 weekends ago, we went with a group of friends organized by the family run travel agency ATS travel. Possibly the most time I laughed in a long time and thankfully the weather is so fabulous in Dubai you would want to spend the whole morning or afternoon there! We booked with Manuel, [email protected]

3. Brunch at Double Tree by Hilton JBR with Pool Access

Super easy, laid back, kids friendly and you don’t need to worry about over eating. The relevantly new Double Tree by Hilton Jumeirah Beach is so laid back we went twice this month! A kid’s corner outdoor, delicious food and full access to the beach and pool!

  • You loved her because you saw all her magic... she loved you because you reminded her of it when she’s forgotten it... 💫
  • We just had a long 3 day weekend in the UAE and I LOVED it! 
I’m thinking of starting a global petition where we can have 3 day weekend all over the world! 
What do you think? Wouldn’t you LOVE a 3 day weekend!?
  • Truth: I’ve come to terms a long time ago that, if you are not motivating me, praying for me, loving me, inspiring me or trying to build with me... then, you are a distraction. 
For a long time I’ve felt the pressure of social media and I’ve learnt to deal with it. 
We live in a society that is continuously looking for happiness, dreams and goals out there for the next best thing to feel ‘happiness’ and ‘social acceptance’ but, we seem to forget that we are ALIVE, and that is all we need right now. 
If you agree leave a ♥️. Thank you for being with me throughout all these years.
  • Right this second, where I am... and where I want to be and it’s f*** incredible ♥️

  • Who wants to join??! Not long now for our upcoming group trips on @travelwithtjd as we kick off the season! #travelwithTJD
We’ve got 6 separate FULL groups on our Adventure Travel Movement going to different locations in Norway and Finland in 2018 and I’m so thankful and excited! 
Our first one sets sail in October in Tromso for 4 nights in search for the Northern Lights while we sail the arctic sea! We dock in an uninhabited Island to hike and explore too! 
Make sure you follow @travelwithtjd to join our Travel Adventure Travel Movement. 
Thank you @dennisstever for this lovely picture ♥️
  • Are you a beach person or a mysterious desert lover?? I have to admit I love the beach but the desert has its own magic too! 😊
Back in the desert 🌵 and it’s hot but I can’t wait for the weather to start cooling off here! Which one do you love more?
  • What’s your favorite animal? Mine is the elephant. 
Those who know me well, know how I constantly talk about the dark side to elephant tourism that many people just don’t seem to be aware of… but you need to know this! 
Elephants are endangered species and should be in the wild, and the ONLY way to ride an elephant is by taming it with a process which is called Phajaan, or “the crush”.
It involves ripping baby elephants away from their mothers and confining them in a very small space, like a cage or hole in the ground where they’re unable to move with them tied down. Check it out on YouTube. 
So please don’t ride elephants, at any cost, ride bicycles instead.

May the power of a thousand elephants give you the strength to face the troubles ahead. ♥️
  • I’m curious to know... Where is the best sunset you’ve ever seen? ♥️
  • People always say: “Make sure you get a job doing what you love!’’ But that isn’t the best advice. 
The right job is the job you love some days, can tolerate most days, and still pays the bills. Almost nobody has a job they love every single day and that is ok because that’s what it means to be human ♥️ #infinitilebanon #Q30
  • Believe me, with the crazy errands I’m running around for today, I wouldn’t mind dropping it all and being back here where my only concern would be tan lines 😊 Who is with me? 😊
Happy Friday!! ❤️
  • Leaving Lebanon is never easy. Thank you for those with insane magic in them, those who danced through the nights till the mornings with me, those who took road trips with me, those who loved me, those who ate ice cream with me every day, those who made efforts to see me, those who competed with me for the best tan lines and for those friends who always were undeniably themselves with me. You know who you are ♥️🇱🇧
