As time flies and another week begins, 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 on the article, tweet the piece on Twitter, stumble the post using Stumbleupon and post a link to the submission 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, you have until the end of the day on Friday to submit. Please leave your submission in the comment box below. If you leave it on Facebook and Twitter, I can’t guarantee I will see it. The post should be travel related. 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.
The 5 Favorites of Last Week
“Tracking Hemingway (Paris, Peru, Venice and Sun Valley)” From 1,000 Fights
Submitted by Mike
Mike and Luci travel around the globe in search of Hemingway. From tours in Paris to his gravestone in Sun Valley, this form of travel is different than most. If you are having a hard time figuring out where to next, why not track a favorite author, or better yet, Hemingway. He really got around.
“Why do we assume all of Mexico is Tijuana?” From Travelated
Submitted by Emily
Emily shares her experience of visiting La Paz. When put up against what popular media and the U.S. government have warned about the country, two images of Mexico present. Emily challenges notions of safety as a whole in Mexico and encourages those to not count out the country just because of what you might hear about Tijuana.
“Surviving the Louvre” From That Backpacker
Submitted by Audrey
While it was over a decade ago I visited the Louvre, I appreciated Audrey’s tips on how to see the Louvre the best possible way. One of the greatest museums in the world calls for rested feet and a plan, as Audrey learns.
“A Girl’s RTW Packing List” From Wanderlass
Submitted by Lilliane
Lilliane presents the ultimate packing challenge of round the world travel. She details exactly how much of everything under the sun she is bringing through an extensive list and a fun video on how she packed it all. Perhaps it is just my love affair with packing shows I started at a young age, but her packing process is a good guide for someone planning a long trip.
“The Speed-Up, Travel and Personal Happiness” From Where’s Nelson
Submitted by Sara
Sara tackles work and travel under American ideals. With vacation days disappearing and Americans without passports, she challenges people to change these notions of “can’t” and “travel”. It is an interesting debate and comment on American society worth joining.
Don’t forget to leave you submission for this week. You have until the end of the day on Friday to submit.
