Pleasant surprise, tonight, coming home from work: I discover that my Petites Bulles d'Ailleurs are in the Top 10 travel blogs from Cosmopolitan.fr !
I can not imagine traveling without blogging
"Between striking photos, good shots from the four corners of the world and memories told, this globetrotter easily juggles between her passion and her professional life", written Cosmopolitan about my Bubbles Underwater & Beyond.
I'm flattered by this "striking photos". It's a... my 7D, become my faithful traveling companion, who will be happy ...
In short, this little chronicle of Cosmopolitan.fr put me in a euphoric mood tonight, as I was during this beautiful snorkeling (palmes-masque-tuba) sequence last March, at Weda Bay, in Halmahera, Indonesia ...
(Good excuse to put the images online, hoping that their zenitude will be communicative ...)
As a reminder, Bubbles Underwater & Beyond is my personal blog, and has nothing to do with my job (as I explain in my page About). I launched it in 2006, just for the sake of it, but it took on a magnitude that I did not expect. And seven years later, I can not imagine traveling without blogging ...
This blog is my little piece of web to me, and a valuable logbook, which allows me to keep track of my travels. It's also a great way to meet, virtually or in real life, other travel and diving enthusiasts all over the world.
Today, I can't do without it anymore! I've become a blogging addict!
Blog before, during and after the trip
As soon as I have a free time, after work or on my holidays, I try to publish a new article about Bubbles Underwater & Beyond. Not always obvious, since I already spend my days of work riveted to screens ...
When I travel, I absolutely have to find a wifi connection or an internet café, otherwise I'm doomed to tell "after the fact", and the gap is not always easy to make up.
I still have not finished telling my previous journeys in French Polynesia (October 2012), to Raja Ampat Indonesian Papua (July 2012), to New York (May 2012) and some others ...
Above, a photo taken in July 2009on the island of Perhentian Besar, Malaysia, with Mandy, my diving buddy. Great luxury for us geekettes: there is wifi on the beach. We exchange underwater photo files while waiting for dinner, while chatting and surfing on the internet... Happiness!
