Your Travel Bucket List Defines YouLike3

My wanderlust gives me direction. I found my path and I never looked back. I became a storyteller, a magnet to beautiful energies of people that would come into my life disregarding my constant happiness of being alone, and I say alone in the most positive way. My wanderlust saved me. It taught me at a very young age to be friendly with everyone and to keep my distance at the same time. It taught me how to love myself and enjoy my own company and travel from Bhutan to Central America on my own. My wanderlust taught me to listen to my heart when my mind goes into anxiety from certain things that do not work out. We all have our moments when things fall apart and we all have wanderlust to keep us dreaming. My wanderlust made my reality my dream and my dream my reality. When you ask me if I ever get tired? Ofcourse I do. I am human. But I have taught myself the ways to get back up on my own, sometimes it takes longer than usual, but that’s ok. Wanderlust can teach you so many things. At your worst, it lifts you up. Here are my wanderlust for 2017, some of them I have never been to and some, I plan on going again. They say the places you always want to visit defines who you are. To me, I am a different person in every destination. I fall in love with the person I am in every single location I am in. And that is what defines me.

The more I give in to my wanderlust, the more my travel bucket list grows.

  • A couple of days into Portugal again and it’s so good being back here! Lisbon is one of my favorite cities in Europe, it’s very different than any other city and reminds me a lot of Lebanon! Exploding with colors and alley ways, the friendliest people, delicious food and great music festivals!! 🎶 🎵 I have a whole guide on the blog!
  • I have to admit, this was a fluke shot I took while walking out of the spa at @shangrilamauritius and it turned out pretty crazy don’t you think? 😊
  • Sailing has become our family norm in summers for a very long time - sleeping on a yacht for days has become somewhat of a summer tradition for Chloè now in Greece. I’ve been lucky enough to have great sailing experience and learning from the best. This summer, back to Portugal but this time across the islands for the very first time!!
  • She’s the girl that has a thousands things to say to you, and a thousands reasons not to... 💫
  • I can’t wait to go back to my beautiful home 🇱🇧 Have you been to lebanon before? ♥️
  • I read once that some people have the ability to magnetize the people they need to help push them even further into greatness. Some take them for granted, some don't see it because they are too blind. But for those who can see it, be grateful for it, because even if you think you don't need them, one day you might understand the chemistry you once had. 💫
  • Just found this photo, 4 years ago, when I was back in Sri Lanka, it feels like another lifetime, do you ever have that feeling when looking at old photos?
  • The start of summer days in Dubai isn’t so easy with the heat but I’ve managed to pull through by keeping busy with upcoming projects and getting ready for my trip back to Portugal in a couple of weeks for summer!
The exciting bit is that on Saturday the 9th of June in Dubai, I’m hosting another successful and popular workshop: ‘Let’s Get Social’ A workshop on how to turn your passion into a business and the use social media. You can message me to learn more on how to join and learn almost everything I know on how to run your business successfully on social media and tips on successful blogging! Happy Sunday everyone! ☀️
  • There is something you should know... I don’t have everything figured out. Believe me, sometimes, even the people who look like they have their sh*t together... sometimes don’t know what the hell they are doing, but that’s ok because we are not meant to all the time! ♥️
Thank you to @dennisstever for the picture 💫
  • The midnight sun. Where the sun never sets. Endless days... For once, I finally found a place where I had enough hours in the day to do everything I wanted. To take my shots without rushing for the sun to set and keep those color in the skies for more than just seconds and minutes and have endless conversations with friends. This is the sun at midnight beyond the arctic. The sun remains this way till sunrise in the summer from the 20th of May till the 21st of  June and we witnessed the first day of the rise of the midnight sun ♥️ thanks to my wonderful friends @pukkatravels where you can join my next trip in October but this time, we sail in search of the Northern Lights 💫
  • JOIN ME THIS OCTOBER!! The remote islands in Tromsø are one of the most rugged landscapes I’ve ever seen!! I’m so excited to share it with you for those who are interested in joining one of my next @travelwithtjd adventure series with @dennisstever who took this photo of me!!
In October you can also join us as we sail for one night in the arctic and into the fjords to watch the NORTHERN LIGHTS, the rest of our stay will be on land driving into the fjords and set a campfire to see the Auroras! 
It’s going to be an adventure with photography advise, arctic wildlife on ground, at sea and in the skies!
In partnership with my dearest friends from @pukkatravels 
Spaces are very limited and all the info is found in the link in my bio and you can always get in touch if you have any questions!! (More on highlighted stories) #TravelwithTJD
  • I hope you find that place one day. Where the chaos inside is understood and your heart feels at home... no matter where you are. 💫
