Around Dubai

Sleep

Stay at the new boutique Four Seasons Hotel DIFC, an intimate boutique-style hotel in the heart of Dubai’s business district with skyscrapers views from all around.

Afternoon Tea

The Ritz-Carlton JBR launched afternoon tea with a new menu crafted by the luxury resort’s talented Chefs that include a new Traditional Tea, an Arabian Tea and a children’s tea.

Dine

Mayta Dubai by Jamie Pesaque opened its doors in April in DIFC. This delicious contemporary Peruvian cuisine has left us craving for more every day with flavors flirting in every dish!

Life Changing Experience

All your life you’re yellow. Then one day you brush up against something blue, the barest touch, and voila, the rest of your life you’re green. That’s what life changing experience does. Fall in love with Four Seasons Tented Camps and get a chance to learn about the elephant orphanage, Chiang Rai and the Golden Triangle.

Fly

Recently, we flew with Singapore Airlines Business Class for the first time and instantly became fans! Incrdible 28-inch seat transforms into a 78-inch bed when you’re ready to turn in. Fully-flat with a cushioned headboard for greater sleeping comfort, complete with linen, duvet and pillows.

Family Destination

Last month, we flew to Singapore for a mother and daughter exploring! From Sentosa Island to shopping at Haji Lane, Singapore proved to be one of the greatest destination for children! Don’t miss out Universal Studios and the wonderful street shows!

Foodies

Food is the cornerstone of Italian culture and the iconic Grand Hotel Tremezzo located on the shores of beautiful Lake Como in the Lombardy region of Northern Italy, offers guests the opportunity to experience a gastronomic treasure trove of signature dishes, inspirational flavours and local ingredients under the direction of ‘the founder of modern Italian cuisine’ Gualtiero Marchesi and their expert in-house chef, Osvaldo Presazzi.

  • Click link in bio! ⛵️ I've just announced new dates for our Sailing in The Arctic Wilderness in Norway with @travelwithtjd for February 2019!! Join me together with @dennisstever when we sail the arctic wilderness in search of the northern lights! 
There is a reason why I keep going back to the arctic: now I have the chance to show you. The adventure and feeling in the north surpasses any other I’ve ever experienced before, I have difficulty expressing my feelings that describes the true reality of arctic silence, subzero temperatures and open waters. #TravelwithTJD
  • Hello Maldives and hello @joalimaldives

  • Maybe, just maybe... a soul mate is someone who makes you feel like anything is possible... Let that sink in 💫
  • Sailing in the arctic... This is becoming my comfort zone 💫 #TravelwithTJD
  • On our first and last night in Tromsø, we woke up with this beautiful view from @radissonblutromso facing the harbor where our boat set sail from. Looking back at the memories, I still can’t believe how lucky we are to experience it all together. Some people at the hotel even said they could see the Northern Lights from here, despite the light pollution! Thank you @radissonblutromso for your incredible hospitality and for the beautiful room upgrade! Can’t wait to be back! #TravelwithTJD @travelwithtjd
  • It was incredibly windy that day as we anchored on the island. Still, we managed to get to shore without falling into the freezing waters and I managed to get the drone up for a while. We kept on joking about it on the zodiac wondering what would happen if one of us falls off! I would have wanted someone to save my camera first! 😊 What will you save first? #TravelwithTJD @travelwithtjd
  • I’ve always dreamed of sailing in the arctic and now, it’s been a re-occurring reality for me. To me, this is my reality, this is where I’m in my element, this is my life, with my camera in one hand... when I return right here, doing the things I love the most and where everything is far better than my dreams... everything in between is just a phase. You may or may not agree, but this is my back to reality life and I hope you see yours too 💫 #TravelwithTJD @travelwithtjd
  • This is my second time right here on this spot. The first time I found this place, we were sailing in the arctic for the midnight sun and this time, in search of the Northern Lights on @travelwithtjd and both times with Dennis @dennisstever 
There is an unexplainable power that draws me to this island. Maybe because it’s uninhabited, with only a church and a graveyard... Or maybe it’s the rugged raw landscape and how comfortable I am with silence. Whatever it is, I wanted to show them what magic looks like. #TravelwithTJD
  • My beautiful reality shared with the sweetest and bravest new guests on @travelwithtjd 
On the first night, we arrived in Tromsø at @radissonblutromso and got ready to set sail in the arctic the next morning with @pukkatravels 
Emotions were running high, one of the bravest people I met on our group, strangers sailing alone together, they found the chance to do that one thing they never imagined they would, one opportunity to jump on, they took a deep breath, and felt the rush of adrenaline. . . 
Thank you @dennisstever for capturing this moment ♥️ #TravelwithTJD
  • Nothing but raw arctic wilderness and no place I’d rather be! 
Can you spot the snowmobile on the frozen lake?
  • I’m ready for the most incredible season of adventures beyond the arctic wilderness with our @travelwithtjd trips!
Are you? ♥️ PS: that’s the sun the clouds behind there!
  • Take me back to @joalimaldives ☀️ Tag the person who you want to go to Maldives with!
