On my way to North Carolina’s Outer Banks, 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, tweet the article using Twitter, stumble the piece on Stumbleupon and post a link to the article 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 rules of the road, please only submit one link per person each week. Leave your submission in the comment box below rather than sending it to be on Twitter, Facebook, etc. Your article should be travel related. You have until the end of the day on Friday to leave your submission below. 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
“Nighoj potholes” From Le Monde
Submitted by Nisha
Nisha shares a fascinating landscape in the village of Nighoj. The town is known for its beautifully formed natural potholes, ones you don’t curse when you see. Her photographs and descriptions provide insight into these geological wonders.
“America’s Favorite Treat: Peanut Butter” From The Country Skipper
Submitted by Sabrina
Being an American, I had never considered just how peanut butter obsessed we could be. From a foreigner’s perspective, living in Texas, Sabrina brings to light this American cultural phenomenon for all things peanut butter.
“Pyramiden—an Arctic Ghost Town” From Sophie’s World
Submitted by Sophie
Sophie journeys to Pyramiden, an Arctic ghost town. With residents forced out of the community, Sophie observes traces of the haste. A land where polar bears roam the streets, the traces of that departure, the remains that make it a ghost town are what intrigued me the most.
“Avoiding bed bugs, bacteria and bad guys” From Breathe Dream Go
Submitted by Mariellen
Mariellen shares her tips for avoiding bed bugs, getting sick and bad guys while in India. I found her tips and words of advice fitting for other countries as well, not just India. However, if you are heading to India looking to stay safe and healthy, you will want to give this a read.
“How 9/11 Changed our Lives (and not just how you think)” From Trans-Americas Journey
Submitted by Trans-Americas Journey
Trans-Americas Journey shares their connection to 9/11, living just three blocks from the World Trade Center at the time. Rather than a typical 9/11 tribute, I appreciated the message behind their story and just how much the tragic events changed their travel lives as well.
Don’t forget to leave a comment below with your submission for this week. You have until the end of the day on Friday.
