From a new year, 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 Five Favorites of Last Week
“Feel the Rush: Rappelling down Vihigaon Waterfall” From Red Scarab Travel and Media
Submitted by Priya
Priya takes us to Vihigaon in India to rappel down a gushing waterfall. All while hanging by a string on a 100-foot wide vertical rock face, this adventurous experience is certainly not for the faint of heart.
“The Road to Terezin” From My Walkabout
Submitted by William
William provides a haunting tale of visiting Terezin, the Nazi transit camp in the Czech Republic. Along with several photographs, he also includes a very chilling video of his experience on the road to Terezin.
“Lion’s Head—By The Light of the Moon” From Rory in South Africa
Submitted by Rory
Rory provides a great deal of incentive to head to South Africa as he makes the trek up Lion’s Head for its views of Cape Town. As he watches the day fade into the night, Rory captures some remarkable images from Lion’s Head.
“Why I Turned Down My Dream Job” From Katie Going Global
Submitted by Katie
A career in travel is often seen as the dream job. However Katie goes against the grain to say no to a job in the travel industry. Her case is a good reminder to never settle for a position below your standards, even if the word “travel” is attached to it.
“The Road Less Traveled: The Natchez Trace Parkway” From Needle Girl Haystack World
Submitted by Laryssa
Laryssa takes us on a different road, that of the Natchez Trace Parkway stemming from Nashville to Natchez, Mississippi. Without the distractions of big semi-trucks and fast food restaurants, Laryssa can appreciate this stretch of the south, one littered in historical and scenic finds.
