If you fell in love with the pictures of Big Sur like I did, and you're headed there to take your own photos of these jaw-dropping scenic vistas, there's a few things you won't want to forget on your journey!
Packing for California wasn't an easy task for me. I wanted to make sure I was prepared for all kinds of weather conditions and different activities, like walking through trendy San Francisco and Monterey, or hiking through the wilderness of Big Sur and mountains in Yosemite.
I've read about the benefits of carry-on packing before, but wasn't a believer until I tried it for myself. Up until this point, I'd been lugging around TWO bags. Crazy, right?! It's so much easier with one, little, rolling carry-on. Also, I found that when I brought two bags, I honestly wasn't even using all of the clothes. I was just carrying around dead weight. It's all about that minimalist experience, right? Quality over quantity.
And so I mangaed to pack everything I needed for a week in Cali into a carry-on! Check out the picture below!
However many bags you decide on, when packing for Cali, and specifically for Big Sur, there are a few items you won't want to forget that may come in handy! Can you guess which three items I recommend?
Emily & Jet: Our travel is modest, but packed with adventure. Cheap, but not hostel-cheap. Romantic, but exciting and memorable. We take little, but grand, adventures together to grow in love and life experience.
