8 Months in a Suitcase

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, plug 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!).

Missing you and can’t wait to see you. Let us know if you need to stay with us at all.

So THAT’S what the tripod was for. Well organized for the photo. We should have taken a follow-up to prove how easily all of that fits into your suitcases.

Yeah, all we have to do is sit on our suitcases to crush the contents into submission!

You clearly know what you are doing after 8 months. I never would have remembered to pack two ceramic bedside lamps.
