Suzy Stumbles Over Travel: Week of April 9, 2012

As I head out for Opening Day in Denver, I bring you this week’s Suzy Stumbles Over Travel. In case you are new to this site, each week I ask writers and readers to submit their favorite travel post 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.


The 5 Favorites of Last Week

The TSA Strikes Again” From The Epic Adventurer

Submitted by Julia

Julia recounts all of the troublesome reports about the TSA in the United States. She complies several links to news articles in case you have missed some of the injustices of the TSA.

That Time We Tried To Make Sense of Russia” From Ready Set Jet
