Back home and fighting jet lag, I bring you this week’s Suzy Stumbles Over Travel. In case you are new here, each week, I ask writers and readers to submit their favorite travel posts of the week. I read each submission, comment, stumble the post using Stumbleupon, tweet the article on Twitter and I post a link to the piece on my Facebook page. The following week, I select my five favorites submitted last week and the stumbling begins again.
Just a few things to keep in mind, please only submit one link per person each week. You have until the end of the day on Friday to submit. A link to the article must be left in the comment box below. 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.
The 5 Favorites of Last Week
“No Place Like Home??” From Virginia Downing
Submitted by Virginia
Virginia tackles home, a place many travelers can’t easily define. She presents all of the different places where she feels those emotions of home, proving you can find home as close as your backyard or as far away as Barcelona.
“Woken By Explosions at 5AM in Honduras” From Vagabond Quest
Submitted by Dina
The title of this post had me worried for Vagabond Quest. However, the traveling duo proves that places we hear so much about being unsafe are sometimes not always what they seem. Festivals and celebrations turn fears into appreciations for local friendliness.
“10 Free Things To Do in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia” From Lash World Tour
Submitted by Lash
Lash presents an incredibly complete list of things to see and do in Kuala Lumpur for those without heaps of money. What I really appreciated about her list are the activity you might not always consider in a city, from the best place to people watch to wandering through artists’ workshops.
“How To Become a Gelato Snob” From 1000 Fights
Submitted by Mike and Luci
If you have been to Italy, you have probably had gelato at some point. However, not everyone knows what all of those tasty flavors are. Some might just point to what they want and call it a day. However this post is a good gelato guide, detailing most gelato flavors you might see.
“The Definition of Success” From Hecktic Travels
Submitted by Dalene
Pete and Dalene are asked to come to a Career Day at a local school and discuss their exciting lives as travel bloggers. While they might feel inadequate in terms of success, the eyes of children see something different. The message here can be applied to anyone. Success doesn’t always mean making oodles of money.
