Back from my road trip and ready to plan a wedding, I bring you this week’s Suzy Stumbles Over Travel. In case you are new to this site, each week I ask bloggers/writers and readers to submit their favorite travel posts of the week. This can be from your own site or another writer’s piece. 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
“Remembering Easter Island” From Colleen Brynn Travels
Submitted by Colleen
Different than your average blog post, Colleen composes a poem about her visit to Easter Island. Her words are proof that you don’t need paragraph after paragraph to convey how a place can really “stain” you in a good way.
“Volunteering in Cambodia” From The Wrong Way Home
Submitted by Izy
Izy details her volunteering experience in Cambodia by sharing several photographs and moving observations about the children she teaches. In the process she finds these little heroes could teach us all a thing or two about happiness.
“The Giving Lens Gives Back in Jordan” From A Taste of Travel
Submitted by Jenny
Jenny partakes in a photography, travel and volunteering project in Jordan. She captures through the lens a society devoted to empowering women through job skills and training. She moves us with the moments captured of these women at work, weaving and spinning pottery.
“Arriving at Inti Punku, the Sun Gate” From Holiday Nomad
Submitted by Freya
As Freya prepares for that moment on the last day of the Inca Trail, she wonders just what the feeling will be like at Inti Punku, the Sun Gate with the sun creeping over Machu Picchu. Rather than leaving those feelings to the imagination, she implores the experiences of other travelers who have stood at this perch.
“Relationships and Travelling” From Creative Nomad
Submitted by Rebecca
Rebecca experiences the heartbreak of just what travel can do to a relationship. As one relationship ends, she reflects on the trouble of finding a love that fits harmoniously together with travel and life.
