Suzy Stumbles Over Travel: Week of March 26, 2012

From sunny New Orleans, 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, post the article to my Twitter, stumble the piece using Stumbleupon and place a link to the submission on my Facebook page. The following week, I select my five favorite submissions submitted last week to be featured here. The stumbling and blog promoting begins again into the next week.

Just a few things to keep in mind, please leave a link to your submission in the comment box below. I can’t guarantee I will see submissions left on Facebook, Twitter, etc. Your submission must be travel related. Please only submit one post per person each week. You have until the end of the day on Friday to leave your submission. I will get busy promoting your 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 for this week made my five favorites.
