Sorry for the lack of posts lately. It’s been a whirlwind past month! On May 20 we switched continents flying from Colombia to Germany to embark on the second half of our trip. We hurriedly bounced between the capital cities, upping our travel pace in order to join our friends Dana and Eric in Croatia. In five weeks we’ve already visited more countries in Eastern Europe (9) than we saw in six months in South America (8). Along the way we also had our laptop stolen (more on that in a later post).
Check out our new Eastern Europe map & itinerary page, always accessible from the left sidebar.
Now that we have a computer again (thanks Dana and Eric!) we hope to catch up on blog posts. We’ll be adding a few more carryover posts from South America while also writing about Eastern Europe. Stay tuned and thanks for following!

We’ve finally updated the blog with our detailed packing list, with photos and explanations covering key items in our 82 liters of belongings. While the descriptions may be too detailed for most of you, the main intent of these lists is to help others who are planning similar extended trips. Before our trip began, we made use of packing lists posted on countless other travel blogs, and now we want to pay it forward.
Hopefully in a few months we can revisit the lists to provide perspective on which items were the most and least useful.

We have added a map to track our journey, and will try to keep this updated as we go. From the blog homepage, use the left menu to navigate to “About”, then “Map” –> https://82liters.com/map/
Fun fact: We are currently 47 nights into our trip, 3 of which have been spent on buses.
