About you

Hi guys, I’m Amelie, I’m French and 37. I’m a scuba diving instructor and also the Co-Owner of French Touch Diving in the Philippines. When I’m not diving I’m in France where I’m a waitress in Paris. I am also passionate about sea, earth protection and sharks. I can teach you how to make baby corals and why we all should love and protect our oceans. When I have time I travel as much as I can, I live to discover new places new cultures, new food and new people! I am also quite influential in France as a travel influencer for Instagram. I wrote blogs and some articles for papers. And I’m also a good cook and wine lover like many French people 🤣🤦‍♀️😅

How do you stay safe when you’re travelling?
