Oh dear ! I am not a little proud. I had already been noticed by Glamour, and there the writing of just elected my Bubbles Underwater & Beyond "Best Travel Blog"! ! !

Here is an excerpt from the email I received today:

We are pleased to announce that the editor of has elected you as the best travel blog
We have the pleasure to offer you a superb box set Dreams of exception with our partner Wonderbox.
Regarding the continuation of our major blogs contest, the 6 best elected blogs selected and rewarded during the year will be submitted again to the editor of and posted on the site as of May 10, 2010.
From May 13, 2010, a jury of honor composed of members of the editorial office will elect "the favorite blog of", all thematic, like the big winner, who will win a stay of one week at the hotel Indian Resort & Spa **** for 2 people in Mauritius worth € 9200 with the site


Pfff ... I can not believe it.

So I have already won a "Box Dreams Exception" (I took a long time to understand what he was returning, but that's it, I found, by going to the corresponding page of Wonderbox).

I wonder what's going to be, and if I'm going to be able to choose the theme I want ... A flying lesson? Great food in a great hotel? A trip to the creeks of Marseille? Not enough time to go through the list, but I'll take a closer look.

In addition, there, it makes me shine a starry stay of ... € 9200 in Mauritius! ! ! J'hallucine.

😮 😯 8)

Me who have a habit of restricting my budget accommodation, with guesthouses for backpackers at 10-15 € per night maximum, it gives me a little dizzy. I could afford a dozen tickets for Asia round trip, with this sum ...


To say that I dream, for a long time, to discover Maurice! But in these conditions "great luxury", it was unimaginable ... Oh, there ... And if I ever won?

Ah ... It's good to dream! See you in May!


  Between Two Journeys

  1. @Manta: I do not know if I "deserve", but it's great, yes!

    @Paco: In fact (unlike the operation at Glamor, where they had spotted the blog without intervention from me), baited by the trip to Mauritius to win, I followed a tweet that gave the link to the contest. And I signed up like that, without really believing it. Since then, I had completely forgotten ... until today! Me too, I cross my fingers. Do we ever know!

    @Laurence: Yes. You made me want too much. In fact, all this is your fault!

  2. I discovered your site a short time ago ... I discovered Asia through your look ... it leaves you dreaming ....

    we cross our fingers for you 😉

    ps: if you need a baggage handler or a blanket. photo for star ... I know that Lille St-maurice 😉

  3. super felicitation ...., it must always be fun and in addition, you put it well. It's true that your blog is great ...

  4. Hi Corinne,

    It's great, they chose the best of blogs it's obvious ❗ 😉

    It's always a wonder to you to browse your blog and a source of inspiration for me too who loves Asia and in addition you re-motivated me for diving, there I say: respect 🙄

    Now you have all of a great ... !!! 😀
    You'll be able to say "Little Bubbles Elsewhere Because I'm worth it ..."

    May 13, 2010, you'll win, I'm sure 😉 8)

    Bravo Corinne

    See you soon

  5. Congratulations
    I had also registered for this contest, but in front of the quality of the other blogs, I made myself a reason well before knowing the result.
    I had read yours actually, and my faith, he deserves this award.

    I live in Mayotte for 6 years, and I leave this island in a few days, but it is a rare destination for divers.
    And yet, there is so much to see in our lagoon.

    If one day you have no idea travel, think about this tiny peanut from the Indian Ocean, which belongs to France and will be in a few years the 5th Department Overseas.

    Thank you for sharing your travels.

  6. 😀 hi hi hi and yes there I plead guilty, but what do you want it is you who is at the origin of the virus travels, at least as contagious as the one who is one of the media for a few weeks ......... 😛

  7. Congratulations, 😀

    All you have to do is take a subscription to Marie-Claire, feel the profile of the editors, and adapt your site accordingly. Woof! 😆

  8. Bravo! you deserve to win this trip, your blog is very well done, you give good info and the photos are very beautiful.So I cross your fingers for you! (If you win you bring us nice pictures, say?) Good luck.

  9. Eh eh,
    after the glory on the web of the net and on your places of holidays 8) ...
    That's the glory in fashion magazines 🙂
    Beware, the step towards the magazines "People" is faster than it is believed 😆

    In any case it is deserved 😉 M & #8230; e for the future.

    Because you are worth it & #8230; and here is Marie-Claire rubbing off on me already 😈

  10. @Laufla: Welcome to Little Bubbles Elsewhere, then! I hope you will continue to enjoy the suite.

    @Elisa: Thank you! I'll have to take the time to discover your blog too !!!

    @Guilhem: Thanks thanks!!!!

    @PhilippeB: It's great fun, indeed. I am really happy. Especially when behind, I see flowing so many very nice words, like yours.

    @Alain: Oh dear, what praise! Many thanks!!! Are you going to dive again? What a good idea!!! Nice to have made you want to get back to it.

    @David: We'll see ... I cross my fingers. But I'm already really happy with this first selection!

    @Kaay: Thank you for your comment, it's very nice. I do not know anything about Mayotte, but what you say makes you want to ...

    @Laurence: This is super contagious, the virus of travel ... but this one, I like the idea that it spreads.

    @Richard: Thank you! But no question of writing "so that Marie-Claire likes" ... I will continue as I have always done, my way. If after, it continues to please them, so much the better!

    @Nani: Thank you! Promised, there will be plenty of photos if I win (and even if I do not win, but it will be on other destinations).

    @Thib: Thank you so much!!!

    @Alain: You'll see, in a short time, I'm going to turn the dive into super glamor activity (with topics like: spit in his mask, it's also good for the skin !!!)

  11. Hello Corinne,

    in Mauritius, there are some very nice dives to do, as well as in Asia.
    The waters are full of fish and I crossed species seen nowhere else.

    Good luck

  12. Hi Corinne!
    Marie-Claire, it's a mag of babes, no? 🙄
    And here, I understood ... all that is thanks to the slugs !!!! : Mrgreen:
    Hey hey, congratulations !!! So you'll have to write more now! 😆
    See you soon !

  13. @ Marie-Julie: Merciiiiiii !!! 😉

    @Matt: Oh, but I intend to go diving in Mauritius one day !!! With or without this contest ... 8)

    @Anthony: You think it's thanks to the nudis ??? I will continue to write as I usually do & #8230; See you soon! 🙂

  14. @Maxim: Thank you so much!!! Your little word gives me the opportunity to discover your blog ... that travels! I feel that I will enjoy your pages, to discover one by one all your journeys. Have a nice stay in South Africa!

  15. Congratulations with all my heart, Corinne. But, € 9,200 for a single stay! So, are you going to change the name of your blog to "little bling-blings"? Perhaps we can read articles with evocative titles, such as "Bali: they found" my "ROLEX", "Where to find Beluga caviar in Kuala Lampur", "Latest bling-blings in Mabul and Sidapan with my friend Rachida Etc etc ☺

  16. @Max: 😆 I burst out laughing discovering your comment !!! What great suggestions & #8230; Me too, I remain taped by the announced price of the said stay (were fooled by typing the number?). 😯 Well, if I ever win, I'll stay myself, I swear, no chronic "bling-bling" on this blog! 8)

  17. @Corinne: Thank you really. What touches me most, deep down, in all this, is to see all the comments and kind words, like yours, that were sent to me here. I can not believe it.

  18. It's great all that. I think for a long time that they have a lot of taste to Marie-Claire, so this reward can only flatter you. As for the budget for Mauritius, he taps me! You will walk with gold flip flops and sleep in silk if you win!

  19. No, no, there's no typo. But not everybody lives on the same planet, money question, and we know it. One thing is certain: you have a good chance of winning because your blog is too nice to follow. 🙂

  20. So you have an idea for when is the result? You must go round in circles in your living room in my opinion! 😆
    Go, as we say Inch'Allah!

    For my little moment of glory ... I made the blog of the week on Planète Thalassa a few days ago 😀 Belle surprise!

    See you soon !

    Prem's guys 😀

  22. @Nono: We'll see. But as there are also categories "fashion" and "beauty", more connections with the themes of a women's magazine, and that this contest is never as a marketing operation towards bloggers, I'm not sure at least that my bubble stories and my pictures of peasants make the weight. Bah! I am already so happy to have won in the "travel" category.

    @Anthony: See you in May for the final result ... I do not go around in circles, no. This first selection is already so much fun! Congratulations for Planète Thalassa !!! It's really deserved.

    @Alimata: I admit that I am very sensitive to the "blockbuster" proposal ...

  23. I took the time to watch some fashion blogs of the contest. Certainly, the style is different from your fish. So, it is not impossible that the magazine takes into account its readership. You may not be wrong in not immediately preparing your suitcases for Mauritius, but you never know .. For now, I must admit that I have not seen anything transcendent, so you stay the best. And for writing, you dominate easily. This is only my opinion and I share it.
    Say, it's a pity that there is not a humanitarian blog contest, it would have boosted me. And as I buy trendy Indian jewelery and handicrafts, I would have had a chance ... at the fashion accessories department!

  24. @Nono: Well ... I will not deny my love for pigeon. Thank you for your encouragement, and for the rest, come what may! You could still try your luck in categories called "feminine" with your little touch of humanitarian and exoticism. The small hairstyle, the Tamil decor, the art of making a chapati ...

  25. Hello,
    Who would've believed that? Finally you become a beast to contests! And you do discover other blogs, which I would not have thought to click, and that's nice.

  26. Hello,
    A hello because I think I clicked to unsubscribe. Horror! As I am addicted to your blog, I write this little note and I think the subscription will work. I will go back to Pondy in January for ten days (we do what we can with the holidays we have ...) and I will think about the blog when I'm there, and even before leaving. I will focus on girls maybe.

  27. @Nono: Well, do not worry, it's easy to re-subscribe, whether it's blog or comments. One click and it's good!
    Ten days in Pondy, that's not bad, go ... I'll follow that.

  28. As an ad says:
    "Because you are worth it"
    Congratulations and chok dee krap! for the future

  29. @ Cloe: Thank you !

    @Laurence: Oh, but you're talking about the Info Cup, not the contest (for which the results will be given this Monday, May 17th ... patience !!!). For the Info Cup, yes, it was played a hair between Marie-Ange A World Ailleurs and me.

  30. 😡 I can not see if the result of the Marie-Claire contest has been published & #8230; The suspense is unsustainable ❗ 😛

  31. Yeah ... A blog cooking ... Well, congratulations the winner agree ...
    But, again and especially to you !!!!

  32. Yeah well it's true that clothes and cooking is good in the spirit Marie Claire ... .. 🙄
    We prefer the adventure side discovery, in short the dream what! 😀
    Thanks to you for this blog, see you soon for the next trip 8)

  33. @ Helen @Laurence: Thank you girls !!! Well, that's okay ... I dreamed a little about this contest, but I anticipated all the same, from the beginning, that the categories more "girlies" (that is to say, cooking, fashion or beauty ), would be more likely to be retained. You're at Marie-Claire, anyway ...
    Very soon in new tickets, which will cause you moreover or small bubbles!
