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!

FLICKR PICS! Kyoung Ju South Korea, Spring 2015
Finished our Korea trip this summer with some adventures out among the ancient forest tombs of Kyoung Ju.
Kyoung Ju is the old capital city of Korea and holds mystery and allure like no other Korean destination. As we wandered through the forest pines, there were signs warning us of shaman attacks and ghosts, but we saw none. Kicked off our shoes and ran through the river beds instead.
Inside the traditional villages, we sat by the lotus pond and sipped hot tea in the shade.
Courtesans danced. My little girls danced too.
Dad wandered around looking at lines in the architecture. One building flowing into another in subtle curves bringing you full circle back to home. Check out the link to the right for FLICKR pics.
