2018 - TJD Finland Winter Series and 2019 - TJD Noway Winter Series

I traveled to northern Finland with Travel with TJD and not only had an amazing experience hunting for the northern lights but met some even more amazing people along the way. Michelle and Dennis do a wonderful job of curating really interesting and not so “typical” trips to some really cool places. They also happen to be even cooler people which helps bring people together. I enjoyed my first trip so much that I joined them three months later for a sail trip in the Arctic circle in Tromso, Norway! I’m looking forward to my next adventure with Travel with TJD, wherever that may take me.

"Never would I have thought I would go on a group trip. Nor, did I expect that this would be one of the best trips I have done so far. This trip has exceeded my expectations and was beyond unforgettable! Your enthusiasm, positive energy, efforts and care before within and even after the trip, have made a massive impact on everyone and have been an inspiration to me on a personal level. You really put your heart and soul in to what you do and have shown that you CAN make your dreams come true and that makes me chase mine! Also, not to forget the incredible selection of the guests. I made some amazing friends through this amazing little journey and we all shared an unforgettable experience. As you kept saying “It’s an experience” and I would recommend everyone to experience a TJD trip themselves! Keep shining! Much love “
