Postcards from California

At the end of June we hopped in the car for a free-wheeling road trip through California—no reservations, no agenda, no sweat. We confess—we didn't sit down to write postcards—we were having too much fun. So here they are: postcards from our summer vacation. Come along with us by clicking on the card of the area you want to visit.
