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!

Just Me and the Visaya Sea, a Motorbike and Goat named Tamale
Cruising along the other side of Boracay. Parked under a palm. Sat beneath thatched eaves on a little wooden bench and drank black coffee from an old Christmas mug with the handle busted off. Chatted with locals. Toothless fisherman mending a net. Gaggle of old ladies nodding at me and laughing. A little boy yanking a goat down a dirt path into the trees. These moments... all this sweet innocence in abundance. You have to take them when they come, don't you?
