  Between Two Journeys

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 ...

 :-)

CosmopolitanIn 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 ...

: roll:

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 ...

"Geekettes" with wifi on the beach. Perhentian Besar, Malaysia, July 2009.

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!

😀

Blogs that travel around the world

My Bubbles Underwater & Beyond are well surrounded, in this little Top 10 of Cosmo. I am regularly the publications of most of the cited blogs. I can not recommend too much to take the time to visit them:

  1. Christine and I make bubbles, some pictures too.

    We take great pleasure in reading you and we are inspired by your stories.

    Je te félicite et fait nous voyager.

    ROLAND

    1. @tetard: pleased that my Little Bubbles are a source of inspiration for other bubbles ... Thank you for your little word!
      🙄

  2. Hi Corinne,

    Congratulations on this new ranking! It's very well deserved.

    Continue a nous faire voyager avec toi, nous on adore 😛

    Julien 😉

    1. @Julien: thank you for your message, that encourages me to prepare new posts as soon as possible!
      😉
      (PS: There is no ranking, it's not a contest, they just published a selection of blogs, I'm certainly flattered to be among those they chose ...)

  3. Normal…. Logic ... Obvious ... ❗
    We need to share, to discover, to see beyond the tip of our noses, to escape and dream, to become aware of the world as it is, and you know how to take us with your
    "Little Bubbles Elsewhere"
    Merci, longue route et pleins de Bulles 😉
    Céline 🙄

  4. Congratulations and congratulations
    I say that it is deserved and, after all, logical.
    always suspended to the publications, always in state of "wake" when I run them ....
    thank you
    Mark

    1. @ Marcopolol8356: "logical", I do not know, there are many other travel blogs that I love too, and that are really worth the detour. But there, it would be necessary to make a Top 50, a Top 100, or even more ...

      For publications, I can not keep up a very fast pace, but I will try to do better in the days to come, all these compliments and encouragement, it motivates! Many thanks.

      🙄

  5. @Corinne : Ben oui, que dire de plus ? Ah oui, moi j’ai un classement perso : mon blog préféré, c’est le tiens ! 🙂 Mais je crois que je me répète ! Accro, oui, çà c’est certain ! 🙄

  6. And yes Corinne, "little bubbles" are well worth it! Since November 2011, having been unable to dive or travel, some blogs have allowed me to escape, including yours. I will not resist to mention also the incredible (but true) story of Francoise, a hiker who went to China on foot from France. It's beautiful, moving, it devours like a novel:
    http://katbrakatjamb.blogspot.fr
    and I advise anyone who needs a change of scenery to dive into it!
    My blog ( http://www.ontheploufagain.com ) is waiting for us to go underwater to receive new underwater images and dream of other divers and non-divers!

    1. @IsaM: thank you for your note, I'm happy to know that I bring you a little escape, virtually ...

      Thank you also for the link, I'll go see that !!!

      🙄

  7. Hello Corinne,
    I just registered "to miss nothing"
    What a pleasure to read you !!!
    Congratulations and thank you
    kisses Guy

    1. @Tonton Guy: perfect! That way you will receive an alert in your mailbox with each new post ... I will try to enjoy the weekend to publish new articles.

      Full of kisses, see you soon!
      🙂

  8. Congratulations Corinne, you are worth it!
    And I sympathize with 2000%, me neither I imagine not being able to blog any more ... anyway besides!

    1. @Ye Lili: thank you !!! 🙂 Yes, blogging has become essential, habitual, normal, necessary ... Between the desire to keep track of his travels for oneself and the pleasure of sharing, to exchange with others.

    2. @Ye Lili: thank you !!! 🙂 Yes, blogging has become essential, habitual, normal, necessary ... Between the desire to keep track of his travels for oneself and the pleasure of sharing, to exchange with others.

    1. @Bruno: thanks! 🙂 As for the equipment (photo, I guess?), Well, it still took me a few years to build, and it is probably not over. There are some lenses that make me dream, and I would like a flash subaquatic too, but I'll have to wait a little before being able to offer me these new "toys" ...

  9. Congratulations Corinne, it's very nice 🙂
    I also take the opportunity to thank you for putting my blog in the list of globetrotters blog West France, I did not even know! And I learn it by following the link that you provide in this article.

    Plein de belles bulles et de jolis posts pour le futur, et encore bravo pour ton superbe blog 😉

  10. Bravo Corinne! Votre blog est génial, un modèle du genre! Vous photos sont magnifiques. Je suis tombée dessus par hasard (de mémoire quand j’ai déposé le nom de mon blog où je voulais parler de bulles, il m’est tout de suite sorti le vôtre!) quand j’ai eu envie de créer moi aussi un blog sur une passion toute récente pour moi. La plongée et le monde des blogs sont des centres d’intérêt récents pour moi et des loisirs hélas trop occasionnels. Ma vie professionnelle ne me laisse pas assez de temps. Je n’ai que 4 voyages plongée à mon actif! Mais le prochain c’est vous qui me l’avez inspiré. Nous partons avec mon compagnon à Rajat Ampat. Merci donc pour votre blog et pour vos articles. Du pur plaisir pour les novices!

    1. @Anne: oh, thank you very much for this enthusiastic comment! Very flattered ... ☺️
      Raja Ampat is truly an exceptional destination for diving, even though its current tourist development may jeopardize the preservation of the sites. You should enjoy !!! If you have not already read, there is this post where I compile a lot of information to prepare a trip to Raja Ampat:
      https://petitesbullesdailleurs.fr/2013/03/03/voyage-raja-ampat-infos-pratiques/

      Good preparations and good bubbles !!!

    2. Thank you for this article and your advice! I will not fail to share our feelings when we return. Congratulations again!
