Suzy Stumbles Over Travel: Week of July 22, 2013

From a very hot Denver, 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

Bastille Day, Philly-Style” From Say Hello To America

Submitted by Christian

Christian shares the quirky traditions of Bastille Day in Philadelphia. From hosting the celebration at a penitentiary to tossing cakes at the crowd, Philadelphia certainly does the national holiday in France a little differently than the rest.

Soul de Ebro” From Le Monde

Submitted by Nisha

When a sculpture is commissioned for the town of Zaragoza in Spain, it is initially rejected. Rather than symbolizing the river for which it was commissioned, the 11 meter tall sculpture is placed in from an exposition center and winds up being the most photographed piece of art in town.

Life imitates putt-putt at the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden” From Ice Cream and Permafrost

Submitted by Jess

Jess wanders through the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, a surprising delight. While most sculpture gardens have those wacky works of art, this space is different for it houses a mini golf course, lending the ultimate interactive art exhibit to visitors.

Does ‘Off the Beaten Path’ Even Exist?” From The Wondernuts

Submitted by Nicole

The Wondernuts ponder whether getting off the beaten path is really possible in today’s world. The post makes an argument for not shying away from places merely because they are on the beaten path.

Architecture River Cruise In Chicago” From The Everyday Tourist

Submitted by Richard

Lastly this week, Richard takes us on a cruise of Chicago. He hops on an architecture river cruise of the city and lends a few compelling shots of Chicago’s diverse architecture.

Don’t forget to leave your submission in the comment box below. You have until the end of the day on Friday to leave your submission.

    Submission to my stumbling segment…

    Hi Suzy! I know this is late and will need to be on next week’s instead, but I thought I’d post it now so I didn’t forget later on in the week. My latest post is about the pitfalls I experienced after my wallet was stolen in Croatia, and how other travellers can avoid them so it doesn’t ruin their holiday.

    By the way, happy belated birthday :)
