2017 started out in January in Dubai,…


Dubai based Travel with TJD kicked off the 7th episode of the digital campaign and this time it was in DUBAI in partnership with Jumeirah Group! TJD invited 5 travellers who have one thing in common, the love for travel and photography. Guests from Brazil, Austria, United Kingdom, Spain and Iraq joined TJD on a 4 night stay in Dubai in January! The team spend the first 2 nights in Dar Al Masyaf, where I personally have never stayed before but always wanted to wake up to have the view of the lagoon right outside my patio! January is known in Dubai to have one of the most beautiful weather with highs of 26 degrees celsius and lows of 14 degrees Celcius and that can only mean one thing, sleeping with windows open to enjoy the breeze and the breakfast outdoor. The next two nights we spent was at the brand new Jumeirah Al Naseem – (Al Naseem in Arabic means breeze)
