Pleasant surprise, this evening, when I came back from work: I discovered that my Petites Bulles d'Ailleurs is in the Top 10 travel blogs of Cosmopolitan.fr !
I can't imagine traveling without blogging
"Between striking photos, good plans in the four corners of the planet and recounted memories, this globetrotter juggles easily between her passion and her professional life", written Cosmopolitan about my Bubbles Underwater & Beyond.
I'm flattered by this "stunning 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 this evening, as I was during this beautiful snorkeling sequence (fins-mask-tuba) 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 About). I started it in 2006, just for fun, but it has grown to a size I never expected. And seven years later, I can't imagine traveling without blogging...
This blog is my own little piece of the web, and a precious logbook that allows me to keep track of my travels. It's also a great way to meet, virtually, people or in real lifeand other travel and diving enthusiasts around the world.
Today, I can't do without it! I've become addicted to blogging!
Blog before, during and after the trip
Whenever I have a free moment, after work or on my vacations, I try to publish a new article on 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 am condemned to tell the story "after the fact", and the time lag is not always easy to catch up.
I still haven't finished telling my previous trips 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, in Malaysia, with Mandy, my diving buddy. Great luxury for the "geeky" adventurers that we are: there is wifi on the beach. We exchange underwater pictures while waiting for the dinner, while chatting and surfing on the internet... Happiness!
