Ask adventurer Simon Reeve a question and you could WIN a luxury Samsonite suitcase

October 16, 2012

I was thrilled to discover that luxury holidays specialist Kuoni are opening concessions at branches of John Lewis this month, including Oxford Street, Reading, Southampton and Cardiff, with more to follow. It’s the perfect partnership – you can go shopping and choose a holiday all in one go, and then go shopping for all the things you want to take on your holiday… *sighs happily*.

To celebrate this new partnership they’re going to be holding a special event with the very gorgeous adventurer and TV presenter Simon Reeve, who made the outstanding series Indian Ocean. Knowing how many of The Mum Blog readers LOVE travel, they’re inviting you to submit a question for Simon.

One question will be chosen to be read out at the event… and whoever submitted it will win this completely fabulous Samsonite Firelite suitcase from John Lewis, worth £285, in Deep Blue. It’s medium-sized, making it perfect for packing your holiday wardrobe.

All you have to do to enter is leave your question for Simon below by the closing date, next Tuesday (you can find out more about his incredible career here.) Usual The Mum Blog competition rules apply.

Good luck!

And if you want to attend the event with Simon Reeve, it’s being held at John Lewis Oxford Street on Thursday 25th October from 6.30pm to 8pm. Champagne and canapés will be served. To apply for tickets email
