After a crazy week in the news, I bring you this week’s Suzy Stumbles Over Travel. In case you are new to my 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, submit the piece to Stumbleupon, tweet the post on Twitter and place a link to the article on my Facebook page. The following week, I select my five favorites submitted last week and the stumbling begins again.
Just a few things to keep in mind, please only submit one post per person each week. You have until the end of the day on Friday to submit. If you submit your post later than Friday, I will just carry it over into next week. The article must 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 you post the attention it deserves.
The 5 Favorites of Last Week
“#TT +#TNI +#Twitter + #Travel + Internet = Love” From Travelated
Submitted by Emily
Travelated breaks down what may be some strange secret code to some or a common part of your vocabulary. There are so many different ways to travel and share your travels online. I realize sometimes not everyone knows what #TT is. There are number of ways the Internet has allow travel to become more accessible. Share this article with your friends who live under a cave.
“Morocco: City of the Dead” From Tour Absurd
Submitted by Katrina
Katrina journeys to Morocco and the City of the Dead. What struck me about her adventure are those moments of travel where you meet just the right person who alters your entire experiences. Apart from Katrina’s story, her photographs will have you in awe of the landscape.
“Meeing Sonu” From Floating Spheres
Submitted by Fraser
Fraser meets a stranger named Sonu in Kathmandu who is looking to improve his English. I think his story is a good lesson in putting faith in other human beings and not seeing everyone as menacing when you travel. The two discuss their cultures and lives as perfect strangers.
“The Abode of Chaos: Art, Propaganda, or Both?” From The Endless Terrain
Submitted by Harrison
From the tip of a couchsurfing host in Lyon, Harrison stumbles upon The Abode of Chaos. I was struck by just how different this travel experience seemed. In the middle of picturesque French countryside, Harrison finds an open-air art exhibit so to speak complete with skulls and political commentary.
“New Orleans, A City of Contrasts” From Wanderings
Submitted by Brian
Brian shares this photo essay on New Orleans. He really captures in colorful photographs the contrasts the city houses so beautifully. If you haven’t been to New Orleans, this series of photographs will give you a great sense of the city.
