As another week passes, 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, tweet the article on Twitter, stumble the piece on Stumbleupon and place a link to the post on my Facebook page. The following week I select my five favorite submissions to be featured here and the stumbling can begin again into the next week.
Just a few things to keep in mind, please only submit one post per person each week. Your submission should be travel related. Leave your post for consideration 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. 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
“5 Unique Ways to Tour NYC” From Nod ‘n’ smile
Submitted by Nod ‘n’ smile
Nod ‘n’ smile shares five unique tours to take while in New York City, from food truck tours to self-guided scavenger hunts. The tours mentioned in this article are presented from the perspective of not just a New Yorker but also someone who isn’t always keen on tours, making them not your average sightseeing options in NYC.
“ArtSmart Roundtable: Outdoor Sculpture in Florence” From This is My Happiness
Submitted by Jenna
Jenna explains some history behind a number of famous sculptures in Florence. These works of art are out in the elements, accessible to all, one of the main reasons Florence is such an appealing city. It’s hard to resist a city that is essentially an outdoor museum.
“Day 25—Frans Josef to Fox Glacier” From Why Rory Alexander is in New Zealand
Submitted by Rory
Rory travels in style around Fox Glacier in New Zealand on a helicopter tour of one of the country’s most famous natural attractions. From dodging crevices to crouching down in ice tunnels, Rory’s experience is certainly one of those “once in a lifetime” types.
“Neon, Fuel Pavement and Americana on Route 66: A Photographic Series” From Adventures of a Good Man
Submitted by Greg
Greg drives across Route 66 from the East to West, highlighting colorful spots along the way from gas stations, toy museums and old motels. The photo essay gives a realistic sense of driving the historic route and experiencing it just as if you stepped into a time machine.
Submitted by Shirlene
Shirlene and Jeremy way the pros and cons of getting up in the wee hours of the morning to see the sunrise at the summit of Haleakala, a volcano on East Maui. Judging from the photos they capture and the lighting, I would say getting up early was worth it.
