We cannot travel the world right now and with this coming month being the most exciting time of the year with the holiday season upon us, it is also one of the most popular times to travel, yet we can’t. We want to discover warmer climbs, see new horizons but we have to stand still right now, but what we can do is definitely discover new local destinations and even help local communities economically y spending in the location. Yet there is great news for the art lover and the travel lover from leading international travel and lifestyle brand Tumi. This Christmas season Tumi is putting together an innovative initiative.
