After another week of stumbling over travel posts, I bring you the five favorite travel posts submitted last week. In case you are new here, each week I ask writers and readers to submit their favorite travel post of the week. I read, comment, tweet the post (using Twitter), stumble the submission (using Stumbleupon) and post a link to each entry on my Facebook page. The following week, I feature my five favorites submitted last week and the stumbling begins again.
In case you are new here, you can submit your favorite travel post of the week in the comment box below. The post must be travel related. You have until the end of the day on Friday to submit your post. 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. Come back next week to see if your post made my five favorites.
The 5 Favorites of Last Week
“Arrival in India” From Odysseus Drifts
Submitted by Melanie
Melanie arrives in India, presenting her first impressions and observations through well-written, engaging text. I could see myself right along with her, dealing with those feelings of figuring a new destination at the same time.
“Ko Lanta: Thailand’s True Definition of Paradise” From Pause The Moment
Submitted by Ryan
For a piece of paradise, Pause The Moment lends some compelling reasons to visit the island of Ko Lanta in Thailand. From deserted beaches to the eye-popping sunsets, this post will certainly make you want to get on the next plane or boat to Ko Lanta.
“Our Brush With Death in the Land of Dr. Seuss Trees” From Ordinary Traveler
Submitted by Christy
Christy and Scott decide to camp in Joshua Tree National Park. Travel is filled with unexpected situations and scenarios. In their case, a run with a snake is enough to warrant a good story.
“The Morality of Dog Sled Tours and Responsible Travel” From LandLopers
Submitted by Matt
Matt presents a heartbreaking story of hundreds of huskies killed in Canada due to a slow tourism year for one sledding company. He tackles the issue of animals involved in the tourism industry and just how they are treated.
“The Parts About Planning a RTW Trip That Suck” From Jack and Jill Travel
Submitted by Jill
We all love to talk about travel, but the planning for travel can often be a chore. From not shopping to poor consulate websites, Jack and Jill rant about those sacrifices travelers make to, in essence, travel.
Don’t forget to leave your submission for this week. You have until the end of the day on Friday.
