To celebrate 8 months on the road, Karen and I finally did something we’ve been talking about for, well, 8 months: we took a photo of our stuff.

All our stuff, everything we’re carrying from city to city, country to country.

And here’s the annotated version (click on either photo to enlarge it):

This isn’t exactly what we left with on August 29, 2011. Since then, we have lost or left behind a headband, handkerchief, bandanas (2), hats (3), water bottles (2), monocular, flashlight, umbrella, airline pillow, purse, sandals (2 pair), shirts (3), shorts (4 pair), bra, socks (several), underwear (several), and sunglasses (countless lost or broken- argh!).

On the road, we’ve purchased a new camera, battery charger, camera cleaning supplies,┬áplug adapters (2), speaker, AirPort Express, purse, coin purse, backpack, cooler bag, combination locks (2), headlamp, umbrellas (2), mobile phone & charger, hats, shirts, pants, shorts, underwear, socks, shoes, sandals, and of course, sunglasses (argh!).
