Another week passes and I present this week’s Suzy Stumbles Over Travel. In case you are new to this site, each week, I ask writers and readers to share their favorite travel posts of the week. I read each submission, comment, tweet the article on Twitter, stumble the post using Stumbleupon and post a link to the piece 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. Your article should be travel related. Leave your submission in the comment box below. You have until the end of the day on Friday to submit. 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
“Washington’s Northern Olympic Peninsula” From My Walkabout
Submitted by William
I appreciated the sentiments of William’s visit to Washington’s Northern Olympic Peninsula. As he explores the area, he explores the idea that we are always drawn back to a certain place, for whatever reason. Travel can sometimes be focused so much on going somewhere new, but William proves that the state for which he was born still warrants return visits.
“More Than a Souvenir: Setting Intention for a Trip” From Outta Town
Submitted by Kelsey
Kelsey looks at the intention for traveling after visiting Mammoth Cave in Kentucky and observing a traveler more intent on viewing the cave through the camera lens. She makes a great point to be in the moment of travel and not focus all attentions on getting the perfect shot.
“Remembering the Victims of Fascism and Communism in Budapest” From Inspiring Travelers
Submitted by Andrea
Inspiring Travellers visit the Memorial to the Victims in Budapest, a work of scattered shoes. The reminder of Hungary’s totalitarian dictatorship is a poignant one. The piece outlines the brutal history of this area, and reminds us injustices and terror occurred all too recently in this part of the world.
“Photologue, Ninjas on Wheels” From Married2Travel
Submitted by Sheila
Sheila presents a different photo essay on the Philippines. As motorcycles pass by her grandmother’s house, she snaps various shots. From 5 people on a bike to pounds of materials strapped to the back, it is an interesting photo essay on the rural Philippines.
“A Fall Photo Tour of Chicago” From A Dangerous Business
Submitted by Amanda
Amanda lends some compelling reasons to visit Chicago in the fall, all with just a few words. This photo post captures the color, life, architecture and most importantly wind of America’s Windy City.
