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!

    I also really like using Samsonite suitcases, although I only have my massive turquoise one. I would have a need for a smaller one as well. Must need to look into this giveaway 🙂

    Awww, too bad it’s only for Australia! I love Samsonite, I have a black hardcase from them bought in 2005, which I still use and is in perfect condition!

    I can truly vouch for the brilliance of their suitcases! I bought one in 2000 to get me from the UK to Singapore. I am still using it now without issues. The suitcase does at least one long haul a year.

    Last year my husband who doesn’t believe in premium suitcases lost the battle with me! I let him buy a cheap suitcase for a SIN to HUG flight, we got our case off the baggage belt without any handles!!!! So I am now getting my kid a Samsung ye for when he does his first school trip away

    What an cool, useful giveaway! Brooke, two weeks ago I would have been considered a newcomer to your blog, but now I’m a dedicated follower! You and your story have inspired me to finally pursue my travel dreams and begin saving for my very first travel adventure, as well as finally start my own travel blog. I love each of your posts and the way your voice and passion for travel really shines through your writing. I also recently watched your 50 Facts About Me video and feel like we could be best friends! Can’t wait for your next post.

    This is awesome! For international flights, do they usually have size restrictions on your purse that goes under the seat? I’m flying Virgin Atlantic and KLM soon and wanted to bring my Lo & Son’s OMG bag. I called and they said they don’t have a size limit but I’m worried they’ll tell me at the airport it counts as a carry-on.
