In December of 2008 Brian Hartenstein and family left America for an adventurous life overseas to live and work throughout Asia, raising three daughters with a sense of wonder and awe at the possibility of the world. It is now 2016 and the adventure continues back home in Oregon. This blog remains as a time capsule to that period. Thank you so much to all our friends around the world. Please stay in touch. We miss you all!

Poems Sent through the Mail
"The Fluffy Owl" A Poem sent to me on the road by Xian, my almost 8 year old.
Fluffy Owl on a Tree
With Large Round Yellow Eyes
I say, "Hoot Hoot," and it says "Hoot Hoot" back to me.
I use all my strength to yell out loud...
And said, "Papa, an Owl answered me."
And Papa said, "I know.
I was standing here in the shadows watching."
Sometimes... the best things about traveling are the letters we get from home. Miss you my little loves.
