Back from my road trip and getting ready for New York on Wednesday, 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 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 begins again into the next week.
Just a few things to keep in mind, please only submit one link per person each week. The article should be travel related. Leave a link to the post in the comment box below. 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
“Travel Shot: Two Old Ladies in Panauti” From Ordinary Traveler
Submitted by Christy
Christy captures two very different personalities in a telling photograph of two women in Panauti, Nepal. She includes some words about the photograph, lending a bit of a back-story on the expression on the faces you see. However, the image reminds the traveler to always look for the story within the click of a camera.
“An Inconvenient Death” From Man On The Lam
Submitted by Raymond
Raymond shares a gripping story of a bus ride in Vietnam turned tragedy. While I can’t put into words Raymond’s experience, I can say this piece places travel and life as a whole into a great deal of perspective.
“Pictured Rocks in Pictures” From Wanderings
Submitted by Brian
Brian shares an off-the-beaten-path experience at Pictured Rocks Natural Lake Shore in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. While paddling through these natural wonders, Brian captures caves and towering cliffs. The landscape is unexpected for Michigan, making this is a spot that should be on everyone’s radar.
“5 Unusual End-of-Summer Getaways from Delhi” From The Shooting Star
Submitted by Shivya
Shivya lends us five getaways from Delhi and five spots I was completely unaware of until now. From Portuguese ruins, rustic towns, national parks and islands, Shivya presents some compelling reasons to head to this corner of the world.
“One Long Travel Day” From Inspiring Travellers
Submitted by Andrea
Inspiring Travellers outline a typical long travel day in their calendar. From planes to trains to ferries, the traveling duo explains that travel is not as glamorous as those who stay home might think. Every traveler can relate to these long travel days.
Don’t forget to leave your submission for this week. You have until the end of the day on Friday to submit.
