Pack & Plan: California

The post with everything you need to know about how to pack light with only one small bag for one month in California.

After last year's long journey through seven states, this summer I am sticking to just one: California (plus one bonus layover day in Chicago, Illinois, but that doesn't really count). It will be my shortest summer yet back in the USA at only four weeks, and I am hoping for long sunny days at the pool!
