Suzy Stumbles Over Travel: Week of April 30, 2012

On a busy Monday, I bring you this week’s Suzy Stumbles Over Travel. In case you are new to this site, each week I ask bloggers/writers and readers to submit their favorite travel posts of the week. I read each submission, comment, tweet the article on Twitter, stumble the piece using Stumbleupon and post a link to the article on my Facebook page. The following week I select my five favorites to be featured here and the stumbling begins again into the next week.

Just a few things to keep in mind, please only submit one post per person each week. Your submission must be travel related. Please leave a link to your post in the comment box below rather than sending it to me on Twitter, Facebook, etc. You have until the end of the day on Friday to leave your submission. Anything left past Friday will be carried over into next week’s submissions. I will get busy promoting the articles by the end of the day on Sunday. Be sure to follow me on Twitter, subscribe to my stumbles on Stumbleupon and “like” me on Facebook to make sure I give your post the attention it deserves. Check back here next Monday to see if your submission made my five favorites of the week.

    Thanks so much for including my guest post on the Maasai, Suzy! I am very proud to have published it on my blog…Walker’s writing about it blew me away and made me question whether I still want to visit the Maasai when I go there.

    Submission from Lash…

    Hi Suzy,

    DAG, seems I forgot to submit last week, too. I usually remember on Saturday. doi. This week I’ve written about my overnight train journey from Shanghai to Hong Kong. I’ve included lots of factual info about Chinese trains, which can be useful to anyone wanting to travel through China…

    As usual, thanks for reading and promoting! cheers, lash
