Pleasant surprise, tonight, returning from work: I discover that my Little Bubbles Elsewhere are in the Top 10 blogs travel from Cosmopolitan.fr !
I can not imagine traveling without blogging
«With striking photos, great shots from all over the world and recollected memories, this globe-trotter juggles easily between his passion and his professional life», written Cosmopolitan about my Bubbles Underwater & Beyond.
I am flattered by this "striking photos". It is 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 not live without it! I became addicted to blogging!
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 traveling, I absolutely have to find a wifi connection or an internet cafe, otherwise I am doomed to tell "after the fact", and the shift is not always easy to catch 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 dive buddy. Great luxury for the adventurers "geekettes" that we are: there is wifi on the beach. We exchange underwater photo files while waiting for dinner, while chatting and surfing the internet ... Happiness!
