Suzy Stumbles Over Travel: Week of June 11, 2012

In flight and a bit delayed this week as a result, 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.

    Thanks so much for letting me share the post on ANZAC Day at Gallipoli. It’s extremely humbling to be able to share about something that is so important to us Aussies and Kiwis.

    Hi Suzy,

    Jeeez Luiz, I really got lost this time! I recently went to Singaproe for 2 weeks, where I minimized my blogging down to the bare neccessities- my regular weekly postings. From that, I got out of my regular weekly routines and… totally forgot to submit my stories! sorry. But, I’m back.

    This post isn’t a narrative, but very useful budget tips for anyone visiting Singapore. Thanks, as usual, for your Stumbles. cheers, Lash
