Backups, external HDs or discs?

I'm using Aperture to manage my photos. I've got about 400GB of photos on a little G-Drive and want to back them up in case this thing gets fried. I travel a LOT so the smaller the better. Options that I can think of include:

1. Buy a Blu-Ray burner and unload them all onto Blu-Ray discs

2. Buy a new HD, copy it all to the HD and put the drive into storage somewhere, repeat every 6 or so months
3. Buy a G-Raid mini

I am open to any thoughts or suggestions. I'm also not looking for the cheapest option out there, if it costs something and I need it, I will pay it even if it means saving up a little longer for it. Thanks for any ideas!
