After another week flies by, 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 posts of the week. I read each submission, comment, post a link to the article on Twitter, stumble the piece using Stumbleupon and place a link to the post on my Facebook page. The following week I select my five favorite submissions to be featured here and the stumbling begins again into the next week. This segment is intended to help travel writers and bloggers receive more attention for their work.
Just a few things to keep in mind, please only submit one post per person each week. Leave a link to your article in the comment box below. Your submission should be travel related. You have until the end of the day on Friday to leave your submission. I will promote your article throughout the week and over the course of the weekend so don’t panic if you don’t see your submission promoted until Saturday. Leave your submission in the comment box below rather than sending it to me via Twitter, Facebook, etc. Keep in mind, I don’t discriminate. I stumble every submission. If you don’t see yours stumbled, it either went to my spam folder or you left it in the wrong place. Contact me if so. 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
Submitted by Jeremy and Shirlene
Jeremy and Shirlene make two dives while in Cozumel, the Delilah Reef and Chankanaab. While I am not a scuba diver, their shots of Cozumel’s underwater world are enough to inspire me to become one.
“How to not be cold in the Highlands” From Outta Town
Submitted by Kelsey
In a post appropriate for the season, Kelsey outlines the only way to stay warm in the Highlands, by building a fire. Throughout a rather poetic description, she uncovers the whole mentality of building a fire, the work, the frustration and the ultimate accomplishment for returning back to the “olden days”.
“December 7, The Day That Will Live in Infamy” From L’appel du Vide
Throughout a series of photographs and words, Elizabeth shares her experience at Pearl Harbor. Her details explain the events of the day that will live on in infamy along with insights into the memorial itself, all from the perspective of someone from a military family and who has lived in Pearl Harbor for several years.
“Downtown Sound—The joy of discovering a record shop” From Nomads on the Road
Submitted by Mike
Mike hits the gold mine of record shops while in Innsbruck, Austria. He discovers not Mozart and Strauss but a very lively music scene. Mike’s act of popping in a store not so much of a tourist destination is a good tip for travelers. Look in unsuspecting places for insight into your destination.
“The Final Leap—Jumping Covered Bridges” From The Joyful Shoehorn
Submitted by Kelsey
Kelsey adds a rather unusual bucket list item to her list, jumping into the air for a freeze frame photo on Oregon’s covered bridges. While traveling through some of the state’s most jaw-dropping scenes, Kelsey achieves her final jumping shot.
