Suzy Stumbles Over Travel: Week of October 31, 2011

On Halloween, 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 on the piece, tweet the article on Twitter, stumble the post using Stumbleupon and place a link to the submission 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 rather than sending it to be on Twitter, Facebook, etc. You have until the end of the day on Friday to leave your submission. If you leave your submission past Friday, I will just carry it over into the next week. 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.
