With the amount of traveling that Team TPG does, we are constantly on the go. Be it a trip to Paris to stay at the W Paris – Opera or on a flight on Virgin Australia down to Sydney, we travel extensively and we of course need to ensure that we are well equipped for our journey.

Some of the items you can get at
Some of the items you can get at

One of our favorite store that we’ve written about in the past is, the worlds largest online retailer of bags and accessories. I have purchased many items in the past, some of my favorites coming from such brands as Tumi (I am a big fan of the Vapor line of bags) and Samsonite, Delsey and their own brand as well.

For this week’s giveaway, we are giving away a $400 gift certificate to, which is just the amount you’ll need to score the Tumi Vapor Continental Carry-On, which is currently on sale! To sweeten the deal, we’re giving away 2 passes to the American Airlines Admirals Club, so you can relax in style before your next trip!

Last Weeks Winner

And the Winner of Last Week’s Prize of a gift package from famed French patisserie Ladurée is…Avital!

After a trip to Paris inspired us, we decided last week to give away an amazing gift pack from Ladurée Paris, the outstanding bakery known for their light-as-air French macarons, scented candles and out of this world sweet treats! We asked I asked what your favorite spot in Paris is, and if you haven’t been, where you would like to go. We got a lot of entries and the random winner is Avital who commented that “Briezh Cafe crepes are the very best – just make sure to make a reservation or come at an odd hour. Musee D’Orsay is my favourite of the museums.” Congrats Avital, Paris is truly a magnificent gem or a city, and we hope that your gift package from Ladurée brings you back!

The Musee D'Orsay, an former train station turned museum, a can't miss!
