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!

Alcatraz Travel Warning
Did you know... that tickets to Alcatraz Island must be bought on-line over a month in advance? Who Knew? In fact, on the day we showed up at the boat company at Fisherman's Warf, the waiting list to step onto the ferry boat was over six weeks long? The woman in the window told me that Alcatraz was one of the most sought after tourist destinations in America. I guess she's right.
