Travel Gear Tuesday – Vinni Bags

Vinni-BagsWhenever my husband and I travel anywhere, we are sure to bring a couple of Wine Skins so that we can safely back bottles of wine, olive oil, perfume, even bottles of foie gras!

We liked the Wine Skin product, had never had any issues with it, but we could generally only get one use of out of them, sometimes two. At $10 a pop, that was getting expensive.

While I was at the Sonoma International Film Festival, I discovered a new product called the Vinni bag. I was immediately enamored. It is a blow-up plastic bag that protects a bottle in the same manner as the Wine Skin, but it is made from recyclable materials, can be re-used over and over and it locally produced in California.

Having a product that is green and promotes greenness is really what sealed the deal and I bought several to use on our next trips. I really think the Vinni Bag is a really smart product idea.

suitcase disaster: trying to bring all my med school books home to study - they were WAY too heavy and I couldn't move my suitcase. Ended up having to take 2 just to meet airline weight requirements!

My worst disaster was in Italy- we had bought some great olive oil and other souveniers. We packed it the best way we could- but needless to say- when we got home- we had olive oil that had leaked all over everything in its path- what a mess! This would have come in handy.

That would be when a bottle of shampoo burst and spilled all over my jeans and tshirts. Yuck - it washed off in the sink but it was a pain. Now I always put liquid in plastic bags so if they leak it is at least contained.

I once forgot to put many bottles of shampoo in plastic bags before packing. When I got to my destination a few of the bottles had lost their caps and ruined all of my belongings! Awful!
