As Tsh Oxenreider, author of Notes From a Blue Bike, chronicles her family’s adventure around the world—seeing, smelling, and tasting the widely varying cultures along the way—she discovers what it truly means to be at home.

The wide world is calling.

Americans Tsh and Kyle met and married in Kosovo. They lived as expats for most of a decade. They’ve been back in the States—now with three kids under ten—for four years, and while home is nice, they are filled with wanderlust and long to answer the call.

Why not? The kids are all old enough to carry their own backpacks but still young enough to be uprooted, so a trip—a nine-months-long trip—is planned.

At Home in the World follows their journey from China to New Zealand, Ethiopia to England, and more. They traverse bumpy roads, stand in awe before a waterfall that feels like the edge of the earth, and chase each other through three-foot-wide passageways in Venice. And all the while Tsh grapples with the concept of home, as she learns what it means to be lost—yet at home—in the world.

“In this candid, funny, thought-provoking account, Tsh shows that it’s possible to combine a love for adventure with a love for home.” —Gretchen Rubin, New York Times bestselling author of The Happiness Project and Better Than Before

Review by Steph
Overall Rating
Something I appreciated about this travel memoir is Tsh does such a great job of putting you in the location--whether it’s the splash of Victoria falls, the spicy tea in Turkey, or the colors Great Barrier Reef. She manages to weave in both reflections on what it means to be at home wherever you are, and concrete details about the practicality of traveling with 3 young kids. It satisfied both my desire to reflect more deeply on what it means to find “home” even in constant transition, as my more practical curiosity. (Really? 3 kids? How did you manage that?). This mix of sensory detail, travel strategies, and deeper reflection weaves together into an extremely satisfying read. Made me simultaneously want to pack my bags and surf the net for my next adventure, while at the same time snuggle down on the couch with my family and enjoy being "rooted" for a moment. Exactly what I want in a travel book!
