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.

An all inclusive retreat center in Koh Samui, Thailand. Samahita Retreat is a dedicated center with a strong purpose: to provide a place in which to practice balanced and healthy living in all areas of our life from Yoga, to detox to weight loss.

  • 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. 💫
