After a quick trip down to Arkansas, I bring you this week’s Suzy Stumbles Over Travel. In case you are new here, each week I ask writers and readers to submit their favorite travel posts of the week. I read each submission, comment, stumble the piece using Stumbleupon, tweet the article on Twitter and place a link to the post 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. The article should be travel related. Leave your submission 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.

“Oh Little Town of Bethlehem: Photos of the Palestine Wall” From Traveling Liz
Submitted by Liz
Liz explores the Palestine Wall in Bethlehem. Decorated with political art and commentary, the wall stands between Palestine and Israel.
