Our Packing List for San Francisco

Our trip to San Francisco is fast approaching! We are incredibly excited to spend some quality time with Soleil exploring the city, but the countdown is killing me. It seems like the closer we get, the slower time is moving. As we are planning our trip to San Fran, there are a few important things we need to make sure to bring.

  • Guillaume’s iPad and my trusty MacBook Pro

  • Every charger known to man, plus extras

  • Our AirPods

    • Thank God for Spotify. If music is as important to you as it is to us, downloaded playlists make flights and layovers a breeze.

An example of my portrait photography

  • All of Guillaume’s jewelry and accessories (there’s a lot)

  • Our Bullet Journals

    • Our lives are in those things. If you haven’t heard of them, I suggest you look into bullet journaling. Take a look at the Bullet Journal website. I will also embed some YouTube videos about the system at the bottom of this post.

  • Dungeons and Dragons supplies

    • Guillaume is a wonderful DM and will be running a one-shot when we are there.

  • My camera

    • My favorite things to photograph are people and architecture. I’m excited to be able to take some portraits while in San Francisco. I am debating whether my photography for this website should be in color or in black and white. Let me know your opinion in the comments.

  • Sunglasses

    • I’m paranoid that we will forget these and then we will end up squinting at everything.

  • Jacket(s)

    • I still can’t get over the fact that we are taking jackets to California.

  • Clothes and Shoes

    • If we forget our clothes, we need to be committed.

  • Backpacks

    • During the day, I carry around a few essentials in a backpack. They’re also super handy for stowing anything you pick up throughout the day.

  • Hairspray, toothbrushes, toothpaste, deoderant, etc.

    • We will inevitable forget (at least) one of these and have to go buy it.

  • Medicine

    • Guillaume has social anxiety and idiosyncratic hypersomnia (his body doesn’t get the signal that he has slept enough, so he is always tired, even though his body is physically rested. Yes, it’s awful) so without his medicine, his days would quickly become miserable. We recently forgot his his hypersomnia medicine for a weekend trip to Ohio. It was awful. Lesson learned.
