From Tebow-crazed Denver, Colorado, I bring you this week’s Suzy Stumbles Over Travel. In case you are new to this site, each week I ask writers and readers to submit their favorite travel posts of the week. I read each submission, comment, place a link to the post on my Facebook page, stumble the piece using Stumbleupon and tweet the article on Twitter. The following week, I highlight my five favorites to be featured here and the stumbling begins again into the next week. The goal of this segment is to bring to light those travel posts you might have missed, all while helping writers get more attention for their work.
Just a few things to keep in mind, please only submit one post per person each week. Your submission must be travel related. Leave a link to your entry in the comment box below. I will promote all articles submitted each week by the end of the day on Sunday. You have until the end of the day on Friday to leave your submission. If you leave your submission past Friday, I will just carry it over into next week’s submissions. 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 next Monday to see if your post made my favorite submissions of the week.
The 5 Favorites of Last Week
“Inside Earth’s Depths” From My Walkabout
Submitted by William
William heads out to explore lonesome Nevada in the winter, covered in old gas stations and towns left behind in time. He stumbles upon the Lehman Cave, lending down to a walk inside the depths of the earth.
“How I Fell in Love With Travel (aka That Time I Sang For Pope John Paul II in the Vatican)” From Green Global Travel
Submitted by Bret
Bret shares a unique story as to how he discovered the magic of travel. After meeting Pope John Paul II when touring with the Atlanta Boy Choir, Bret recalls his first moments of traveling through Italy.
“The Writing on the Ceiling” From L’appel du Vide
Submitted by Elizabeth
Elizabeth deals with the Catch 22 of trusting people while traveling. After being scammed in Morocco by a local “guide”, she wonders how travelers, especially solo female travelers, can keep open-minded about people and not fall into scams.
“And Now For Something Completely Different: 7 Reasons to Slag Off Jordan” From The Working Traveller
Submitted by Shane
With all of the press trips and blogger promotion swirling about Jordan, the Working Traveller shares a different side to the country, a viewpoint that might not, as of recent, been fully represented. This satirical post presents a few reasons why the country might not be the right choice to visit for everyone. The piece also calls into question the hotly debatable subject of press trips.
“Visiting The Sand Dunes of Mui Ne, Vietnam” From Always Twirling
Submitted by Peter
Peter ventures across the sand dunes of Mui Ne, Vietnam. Not exactly the landscape I expected to see when I think of the country, he climbs across these dunes for the views of lush forested trees surrounding a lake of water. A rare landscape indeed, the only aspect dampening the setting is the inevitable gusts of sand up one’s nose.
