Win a set couple’s set of Travelpro luggage worth $920! 

In 2013, before Kach and I had ever met, we each set off on the first stage of our new lives travelling the world. We travelled on a low budget, travelling only by bus, train, hitch hiking and later by motorbike – we were backpackers! Since then we have travelled together across 5 continents, building Two Monkeys Travel as we go.Caribbean Wedding Preparations with Carnival Cruises

One of the biggest changes in our lives has been in our travel lifestyle, from travelling by bus and staying in shared dorms in cheap hostels, we now travel mostly by car and often stay in luxury and boutique hotelsFrom Monkey Backpackers to Luxury Travellers! For many months we would show up in luxury hotels, dragging our dusty, wrinkled old backpacks behind us, and we realised that it was time for a change!

When we flew to Florida in December 2015 for our first ever US road trip, we drove to Boca Raton to meet with Travelpro International, one of the top luggage companies in world and provider of luggage to many of the world’s top airlines, their pilots and cabin crews. Airline staff fly more than anyone else and their luggage probably has to deal with more than any other luggage in the world, so it has to be the toughest, lightest and most efficient luggage in the world. So it sounded like the perfect luggage for our travelling lifestyles!TravelPro Luggage - Caribbean Wedding Preparations with Carnival Cruises

When we met with Scott from Travelpro, we learned the company’s original founder actually invented the world’s first ever properly-functioning roll-on luggage. That’s pretty impressive when you stop and think about all of the rolling luggage that now travels around the world all day, every day.

We decided to work together to find out if Travelpro luggage could handle the kind of travel we do and the wear and tear that goes along with that, so they gave us our choice of their entire luggage range! Kach chose a stylish Crew 10 – 21” Hardside Spinner, while I tried to retain a little bit of the backpacker within me, with a T Pro Bold – 30” duffel bag, made out of tough, durable canvass type material, with two big wheels which allow it to be dragged across pretty rough surfaces.

Our new bags travelled with us all the way from the US to Colombia, to Istanbul, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Morocco, Israel and finally back to the USA again (California, Las Vegas and Grand Canyon in Arizona), all in just three months. The bags were really put through their paces through deserts, over mountains and across the oceans. They’ve been thrown in trucks, trains, pickups and buses, dragged through sand and snow, not to mention the weekly beatings from airline baggage handling. After three months of constant and taxing travel, aside from a few cosmetic marks, the luggage is in great shape and still working perfectly, which given what we’ve put it through is quite an achievement!

Because we know first-hand how Travelpro luggage handles our type of travel and the challenges that come with that, we went back again to Travelpro a few days ago to meet up with Scott and continue with our amazing partnership.

Because Kach and I are approaching our three year anniversary of traveling together, we are starting with an awesome ‘Love and Travel Story giveaway contest with Travelpro, for the chance to win a couple’s set of Crew 10 21” Hardside Spinners (2 pieces) of Travelpro® luggage, valued at $920 (Retail price) for you and your partner!

  1. This is our travelove story in exactly 143 words.

    He lives for the city. He plays video games, eats out, doodles. He loves rainy days.

    She leaves from the city. She takes photographs, stares at sunsets, seeks adventure. She loves the sun.

    He meets Her.

    She takes Him up a mountain. He is surprisingly interested. She leads Him off of cliffs, through rivers and onto beaches. He is unexpectedly refreshed.

    They climb more, dive more, walk more, see more. He learns to embrace the New.

    He is by no means the most practical or thrilling of adventurers, but is by no means the same. Since meeting Her, He feels, a little bit of everything has changed.

    He is now weary of the malls, the hustle and bustle of the city. He now looks up at the sky and wishes upon more stars. And the stars respond: “You have Her hand to hold.”

  2. Brian Christian Agdigos​​ and I first met when we became schoolmates last 2000 and neither of us imagined that we will meet again after 12 YEARS! Last June 2012 we bumped into each other in a marathon held at Ilocos Norte.

    It was last 2014 when our love story really started. To pursue my career as a health professional, I applied for a job where he is working. Surprisingly, at the day of my interview, he was the first person whom I met. Fortunately I got hired. When he knew that I have already started working, he consistently invites me to join running events with him but most of the time I fail to join because of conflict of schedules. However, he has been so smart with strategies! I can vividly remember that he visited me everyday before at the gym not to join me with zumba classes but to wait for me until I am done with it then eventually invites me for a run. At first, all I thought his only intention was to have a companion while running but actually it was one of his ways to show his feelings for me. From that time on, we often go out for a run and eventually opened his true feelings. I didn’t expect that from that everyday run will start a LOVE STORY. ? We took it slowly so we can start our partnership with right timing.

    I am not really good with words so since running has been a part of our love story, last October 2014 I said Yes to Brian when I handed a note to him saying “YOUR HARDEST RACE IS OVER, I AM OFFICIALLY YOURS! ?

    Honestly speaking, we haven’t tried planning for a travel. Our passion is running so we focus on joining different running events in the Philippines. We have also included in our bucket list to join marathons outside the country. We are planning to join Standard Chartered Marathon in Singapore this year.

    The most memorable running event that we had is the “Run Beyond Boarders” last April 19, 2015. It was our first 42kilometer run together wherein we took the chance to see the beauty of nature at the top of Apayao. We conquered the uphill roads of Solsona- Apayao to make it to the finish line which made it more challenging! The experience was worth it because I have learned not to easily give up and to be positive to overcome any challenge.

    There are times when I have thought of asking why we haven’t done making plans for a travel. However, at a second thought, I learned that running is like travelling. We discover new places and we meet new friends. Little did I know that as we join running events from different places, it seems like we are already on a TRAVEL! ❤️

    Cheers to all running and travelling couples! ?

  3. Brett and I met in an online dating site back in August 2013. He lives in New Jersey, USA and I live in the Philippines. Yes 8000 miles away! We are total opposites; he loves video games, old school movies (black & white ones) and punk rock music. But we have in common- we love to travel and visiting theme parks! We went to Hong Kong Disneyland, Ocean Park Adventure, Universal Studios Singapore & Legoland Malaysia. But I don’t go with extreme rides, so he goes alone and I just take picture of him as possible as I can.Top of the beaches we visited was Boracay-famous white beach island in the Philippines, we had so much fun as we drove the Buggy ride going to Mt. Luho the highest point overlooking the Island of Boracay. We are happy to share that our U.S visa fiance petition just got approved and I am scheduled for interview in the next 2 months. We are approaching our 3rd anniversary and this is really the greatest gift for us. I can’t wait to make more memories with him and share it with all of you. God Bless Two Monkeys. All the best!

  4. I met a guy who owns a yacht. We slept in the ‘magic’ hammock and made love under the moon and stars. Tony is fantastic and amazing.
    We sailed from Boracay to Palawan to Malaysia. My first time sailing the genoa fell into water and we had to pull it out of the water and we laugh. We hit the reef in Coron but Tony still managed to get off the reef even though he was very drunk and sleepy. We went island hopping around Palawan to Borneo Malaysia with engine problems, bend propeller shaft and people trying to kidnap us. We hauled the yacht out in Kudat to fix the boat and lived there for 7 months where we also adopted a stray cat we named Tilly.
    We then sailed back to the Philippines and everything broke again……..but we fixed it, again. With the help of God and/or Tony, we survived. I think I know how to build a boat now.
    We live like many other people would wish. We have great and bad moments but still we have a great Yachties Life. We are looking forward for our next adventure. Today we celebrating our 2nd year anniversary together…….we have to go and find the magic hammock now.

    1. Hi Melchora! Thank you for joining in our “Traveling Couple’s Giveaway Contest with TravelPro Luggage”. What a great tale of love and adventure. Good luck guys! Wishing you safe and happy travels together ???
