As I frantically try to finish up my Ireland planning and hope some clothing designer will donate a whole new wardrobe for my trip, I bring you this week’s Suzy Stumbles Over Travel. In case you are new here, each week I ask writers and readers to share their favorite travel posts of the week. By submitting a link in the comment box below, I read each post, comment, stumble the post using Stumbleupon, tweet the post on Twitter and add a link to the piece on my Facebook page. The following week I feature my five favorite travel posts here and the stumbling over travel begins again.
Just a few things to keep in mind, the post you submit must be travel related. It can be your own or another writer’s you enjoyed. Leave a link to the post in the comment box below. You have until the end of the day on Friday to leave your post here. Be sure to follow me on Twitter, subscribe to my stumbles on Stumbleupon and “like” me on Facebook to make sure I get to your post.
The 5 Favorites of Last Week
“10 Types of Travelers We All Hate” From Travelated
Submitted by Emily S.
Rease Kirchner writes this humorous post for Travelated that may have you looking inward about how you appear to other travelers when you hit the road. She lists 10 types of travelers we all can’t stand from the “I have been everywhere guy” to the “pretentious minimalist”.
“Road trip to the heart of Texas Part II—The Heartland” From A Pinch of This, A Dash of That
Submitted by Ana
Ana makes her way to the heartland of Texas, only to find those feelings of home back in Argentina. I admired her ability to paint this somewhat nothing town of quiet streets and cattle auctions with such powerful writing.
“Ché, Dessert In A Glass” From The Dropout Diaries
Submitted by The Dropout
For a bit of tasty travel interest, The Dropout Diaries discover a Vietnamese treat that may not sound delicious, but one she can’t get enough off as a dessert. Lentils and beans don’t exactly sound like dessert, but the colorful images and descriptions of these Vietnamese specialties were enough to spark my interest to maybe try ché someday.
“Blog Stains-Dare to be different in Positano” From Bell’Avventura
Submitted by Rosa
There are always those classic things to see and do in well traveled places, with Positano being one of them on Italy’s Amalfi Coast. However, Rose lends some unique experiences and itineraries in the town most just stroll through or pop in a tourist shop or two.
“How We (Don’t) Fund Our Travels” From The Road Forks
Submitted by Akila
For a bit of debate amongst travel bloggers, Akila simplifies the travel budget question with some powerful words. Budget. Work. Save. The post also goes through issues with having a travel blog just because you enjoy it, rather than to make an entire income off of it. The comment section is also worth a read.
