So if you're on Twitter or read many travel blogs, you've likely heard about the spectacular swag given out at the recent Travel Blog Exchange '09
Debbie and our sponsors did a great job gathering a lot of the fab things that ended up in the bags (and as you can see from her behind-the-scenes post
, the intrepid Shanna
did a lot of work to make it happen too!).
I'm including a few extra items that were last-minute additions here, as well as....drumroll please...running a little contest
! (Details below...)
Many thanks to all the awesome companies who donated items for the bags -- and to Hertz Car Rental for providing the really high-quality laptop backpacks themselves! All those who contributed items were:
, Rosetta Stone
, Gogo Inflight Internet
, Tots on-the-Go
, Indie Travel Podcast
, and Savvy Navigator
And of course who can forget the Vail Resorts
door prize?! They randomly drew three lucky travel bloggers for a free trip to all five of their ski resorts in Colorado this winter! The winners were Meg
, and Christopher Elliott from Elliott.org
. Congratulations you guys!!
