Small taste of the Philippines, at the diving show in Paris, where I went for a ride this weekend ...

In the middle of the fair, a huge stand and a group of musicians: the Philippines are the "guest of honour" destination of this 10th edition. I picked up brochures and various documentations.

This Parisian escapade especially allowed me to meet Marie Ange and Helena, with whom I correspond on the internet for several months, by forum and blogs interposed ... It was a great pleasure to finally discuss live, after so many exchanges on the web.

  1. The pleasure was for me Corinne !!! ... It is always very nice to meet its readers, especially when you feel "in phase". I leave on my side in the Red Sea, and you in the Philippines, on the same dates. So, go to our respective blogs to discover these two destinations. The Philippines makes me want, I can not wait to read what you will describe!

    Have a nice trip…

    Marie Ange

  2. Hello Corinne,

    It was also a great pleasure to meet you at the show ... The feeling was more than good! O)
    For my part, it will be the maldives in 3 weeks! I promise to think of you two from there! : O)

    Well, I have no blog, but will do the trick to add an extra lilies CR.

    Bring back some nice memories, and hello to the Zebus from me!


  3. To Marie-Ange and Hélène:

    Have a good trip to both! It's really "gang of travelers" ... Nudibranchs and sharks just have to stand, with all these flashes that will crackle.

    See you soon !

  4. Hi Corinne,

    It's been a few months since I discovered your blog (during my 6 month trip to Southeast Asia where I became addicted to diving, I was already addicted to the trip, here I am with two viruses, thin!) .

    In short, as I'm in Paris, I thought I'd have a look at the diving show in January. Hence my question: is it worth it? Often in this type of salon, it's a lot of hardware vendors, even that ...

    Have a good day!


  5. @Fabrice: Glad you feel good about my blog and coming back! 🙂

    I am not a "faithful" of the diving show, I only went once. I do not know yet if I will make the trip in January for 2010. But if I was there, in Paris, I would certainly go for a ride.

    It is worth it if you research information on tourist services and if you want to date on the news in diving gear. There are a lot of hardware vendors, it's true, but mostly a lot of tour operators and tour operators, and then a lot of assos.

    But above all, it allows to meet people "in real life", which is more of a plus, I think.
