Ready to hit the road 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 share their favorite travel posts of the week. I read each submission, comment, tweet the article on Twitter, stumble the piece using Stumbleupon and post a link to 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 link per person each week. The article should be travel related. Leave a comment below with a link to the article rather than sending it to me on Twitter, Facebook, etc. You have until the end of the day on Friday to submit. If you leave your submission on the weekend, 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. Check back here next Monday to see if your submission made my top 5.
