Zanzibar with Lonely planet and Wild GuanabanaLike1

When someone puts Lonely Planet & Wild Guanabana in one sentence, a piece of advise, you agree to whatever it is! Wild Guanabana, run by Omar Samra, the first Egyptian and youngest Arab to reach the top of Mount Everest (who is now going to outer space, yes… SPACE) is a life changing journey experience travel guide who organizes these trips in the most safest and fun learning experience ever. Wild Guanabana is organizing a trip with Lonely Planet to Tanzania from the 6th of February to the 10th of February and for all you foodies out there you even get to take a Swahili cooking class! Tanzania is known for one of it’s ultimate safari adventure, it’s white-sand beaches and turquoise seas of Zanzibar, the landscapes, the tribes and equatorial ice-caps of Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain. A perfect getaway.

You can always read one of our Travel Junkie Diary, Sheena Kay’s diary here on Zanzibar.

Here is the itinerary and email for more info! See you there!

I read once that everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself. It’s true. Can one change himself in order to ‘fix’ what is wrong with the world as they know it? Obama once said in his speech, “Change will not come if we wait for some other person, or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.” I believe in travel. I believe those life changing experience help us help others if not just yourself.
For some, travel must be accompanied with friends, others can travel alone and encounter friends along the way. With Wild Guanabana, the friends have been selected by fate who are bounded by a group of 6 or 8 people who probably might know nothing about. These are the kind of adventures you will need once in your life and if you think there is no way you can do that…that only is a bigger reason why you must go. You can be whoever you want to be. Do whatever you like. Act in any manner you wish. It’s just you making your own life changing experience. I chose to go with Wild Guanabana. They have so many life changing experiences trips this year, Nepal is on our list.

  • I’d like to wake up here again - without any expectations... even if it’s just for a little while. What about you?
  • This is my far far away 💞 
Where is yours?
  • I read once that “awareness is what keeps any relationship strong”... so, while I understand that we are the master of our own fate, understand that those around you play a major role in your life, but, don’t ever mistake kindness to weakness... 💫
  • Someone said to me today: “Some people are ‘once in a lifetime’ type of people. There is no upgrade after that.” That’s a whole new level of appreciation. 
Hope you have those people in your life. 
Have a beautiful weekend 💞
  • Take a deep breath, and remember who the f*** you are! ;) Good morning 💞
  • I’ve posted this photo many times and it’s still one of my favorite moments.
I listened to a podcast yesterday and it resonated with me so much on the topic of earning trust in the corporate world “Earning trust: consistency in your behavior - trust is developed and established through consistency in behavior” 
I’ve often said that if you have so much moodiness in your life, you will lack leadership and trust, It’s something I truly believe in people. If you want to earn trust, be consistent in your behavior, in your choices and your words... most importantly, in what you believe in... otherwise, people will pull back. Think about that for your Thursday mood :)
  • It’s been a while since I’ve done a just “pick up and go”. The picture I took from outside my room is a reminder of that time in Kenya. Yep, it’s a giraffe.
Lately, everything has been so planned and that spontaneous “go” is something I sort of miss. 
There are definitely few things I’d want to do... for example drive a motorhome somewhere far far away, surf in the arctic... re-visit Kenya... explore Latin America...those are just few of the things. 
If you were to pick up and go, where would you go and what would you do?
  • Summer in @ourfinland was one of my highlights of 2019. On a mission with @travelwithtjd - we explored the south coast and witness the magic of the midnight sun while driving North West. 
From cabin life by the lake, to glass houses by the sea. We hiked, went on road trips, went island hopping, ate a LOT, took ATVs, did BBQs and jumped into the lake!
Join @dennisstever and I on our @travelwithtjd Finland Summer Series on the 21st of June - 26th June 2020, as we take you through the coast and into the wilderness and experience the summer activities that Finland has to offer.

  • I was always in a hurry to be someone, always in a hurry to become something and do everything I set my mind to. I didn’t waste my time on things or people that would get me nowhere. 
But, I crave a slow life, a simple life filled with adventures. No fast cars or expensive homes and for almost all my life, I’ve built a life in which I almost never needed to escape from. I’ve started my year with intentions to keep me grounded... and I intend to focus more on them. 
This is my beautiful reality and this photo represents that to me.
  • I’ve had the privilege of meeting incredible humans on our @travelwithtjd trips. 
I'm constantly learning from my mistakes and from others and I'm slowly acquiring patience and acceptance. 
I’ve met empowering souls who braved the arctic and chose to kick their fear to the curb and go on a life changing journey with us. 
I can’t help but be so grateful and in love with everything they have given and taught me, and that’s how I remember 2019. Through those I’ve met on our TJD trips, through their support. 
My message to them now is this: 
I know... that just because you carry your load well, doesn’t  mean its not heavy... So, choose wisely. 
Choose yourself first. 
Love strong and fiercely. 
Love with everything that you have. 
Don’t follow rules, break away from expectations. I'm changing...I'm growing... and I always chose to live the life I’ve always dreamed of, and not what others expect of me. 
Be fearless. Always remember that mental connection is stronger than physical attraction. 
And most of all, be a giver, but never one without boundaries... Happy 2020. 
Love, Michelle
