Ever since my first overseas trip more than ten years ago as fresh faced teenager, I have always travelled with Samsonite luggage. For as long as I can remember my mother has always encouraged me to invest in big ticket items and use them for years on end, rather than having to replace your belongings with the seasons.
Thus I had used the same suitcase growing up for as many years as I can remember, though I haven’t always travelled far, usually limiting my travels to one trip a year somewhere in Australia with my family, until I turned 13 and took my first overseas adventure to Hong Kong as part of a children’s choir to sing at a movie premier.
Then when I started blogging full time and embarked on a year long adventure through six continents, I decided I needed to buy the lightest luggage on the market at the time and switched to another luggage brand, which was promptly followed by a switch back to Samsonite after the wheels broke on that case in the middle of Hamburg, Germany, on my way to my hotel… in the pouring rain.
I quickly learned my lesson and phoned my mother who is too nice to say she told me so… but we both know that I was warned!
I immediately reinvested in a large hard case from the Samsonite collection and loved it so much that more than a year later I purchased the matching carry-on size case and both have been without fault and travelled the world with me.
Although I have been using Samsonite cases for years, I was still beyond excited when a representative of the brand reached out to collaborate with World of Wanderlust to share my Samsonite story with my readers, as well as offer a giveaway to one lucky winner! These cases are an investment item that you will keep for years of travels and adventures, but still nothing beats a freebie if you can score yourself the winning prize!
To celebrate the launch of the new tru-frame cases (of which I now own in three sizes and never travel without at least one!), I’ve teamed up with Samsonite to give away x1 case to x1 lucky winner on Instagram.
