Here is my solution , there are a number of steps , I will describe them by the quantities in the containers:

10 | 18 | 29

---------------

0 | 0 | 0

0 | 18 | 0 <- fill the 18 liters recipient

0 | 0 | 18 <- pour the 18 liters recipient into the 29 liters recipient

0 | 18 | 18 <- fill the 18 liters recipient

0 | 11 | 29 <- pour the 18 liters recipient into the 29 liters recipient

10 | 11 | 19 <- fill the 10 liters recipient

3 | 18 | 19 <- pour the 10 liters recipient into the 18 liters one => 3 liters in the first recipient

10 | 18 | 29

---------------

0 | 0 | 0

0 | 18 | 0 <- fill the 18 liters recipient

0 | 0 | 18 <- pour the 18 liters recipient into the 29 liters recipient

0 | 18 | 18 <- fill the 18 liters recipient

0 | 11 | 29 <- pour the 18 liters recipient into the 29 liters recipient

10 | 11 | 19 <- fill the 10 liters recipient

3 | 18 | 19 <- pour the 10 liters recipient into the 18 liters one => 3 liters in the first recipient

If we can;t drop the water, can we have an elephant drink it? :p Just joking

Here's the solution that I got

10 | 18 | 29

---------------

0 | 0 | 9

10| 0 | 9 <-- add 10 to 10L

0 | 0 | 19 <-- move 10 from 10L to 29L

0 | 18 | 1 <-- move 18 fro 29L to 18L

10 | 8 | 1 --- move 10 from 18L to 10L

0 | 8 | 11 <- move 10 from 10L to 29L

8 | 0 | 11<-- move 8 from 18L to 10L

10 | 0 | 11 <-- add 2 to 10L

0 | 10 | 11 <-- move 10 from 10L to 18L.. now there is 8 empty in 18L

0 | 18 | 3 <-- move 8 from 29L to 18L

3 | 18 | 0 <-- move 3 from 29L to 10L

Done!

How do you do this

0 | 18 | 18 <- fill the 18 liters recipient

0 | 11 | 29 <- pour the 18 liters recipient into the 29 liters recipient

It should be

0 | 18 | 18 <- fill the 18 liters recipient

0 | 7 | 29 <- pour the 18 liters recipient into the 29 liters recipient
