From a freezing Munich, I bring you this week’s Suzy Stumbles Over Travel. Each week, I ask writers and readers to submit their favorite travel posts of the week. I read each submission, comment, post the article to my Twitter, stumble the piece using Stumbleupon and place a link to the article 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.
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 next week’s submissions. I will read all of the submissions and promote them 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.
