5 Things to Pack for Your Trip to California

Canada - Toronto -Luggage

California Guide Book so you can get information quickly even when you don’t have internet access. While I love using blogs to plan my trips, I like to supplement with a guidebook that I can use on the go. 

Backup Charging Bank for your cell phone since you’ll be using it as a camera, GPS system, and general travel genie.

A Camera since California is super photogenic. I use a mix of my Nikon D810 and my  Samsung8 smartphone these days.

A GoPro for underwater and action photography. If you’re headed to California for a beach vacation, you’ll love the shots you can get from the water!

A Great Day Bag so you can carry what you need with you (like your camera, snacks, water, sunscreen, cash, etc). My current favorite is the Pacsafe Citysafe, which is especially great for California because it has many anti-theft features.

Don’t Forget Travel Insurance!

Before you leave for California make sure you have a valid Travel Insurance Policy because accidents happen on the road.

I pay for World Nomads, and I happily recommend them. It’s especially important to get travel insurance if you’ll be hanging out in cities (like L.A.…ahem) where tourists can be the victims of pickpockets.

I have been a paying customer of World Nomads for travel insurance for two years, and I happily recommend them.  

If you get sick, injured, or have your stuff stolen, you’ll be happy to have the ability to pay for your medical bills or replace what’s stolen or broken.
