From somewhere over the Atlantic Ocean, 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 share their favorite travel posts of the week. I read each submission, comment, tweet the article on Twitter, stumble the post using Stumbleupon and place a link to the submission on my Facebook page. The following Monday I select my five favorites to be featured here and the stumbling can begin 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. Leave your submission 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. Submissions left past Friday will be carried over into the next week. I will get busy promoting your articles throughout the week, with all stumbled by 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 you article made my five favorite submissions from the week.
