Description

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.

In her late 30s, and as a mom to three kids under age 10, Tsh Oxenreider and her husband decided to spend a rather ordinary nine months in an extraordinary way: traveling the corners of the earth to see, together, the places they've always wanted to explore. This book chronicles their global journey from China to Thailand to Australia, Sri Lanka, Uganda, France, Croatia, and beyond, as they fill their days with train schedules, world-schooling the kids, and working from anywhere. Told with wit and candor, Oxenreider invites us on a worldwide adventure without the cost of a ticket; to discover people, places, and stories worth knowing about; to find peace in the places we call home; and to learn that, as the Thai say, in the end we are all "same same but different".

Having traveled the world as a kid myself.....

I found this book to be incredibly uninteresting. The family seemed to spend a lot of time on playgrounds. There was no story. There was a weak "soul searching spiritual quest" that didn't hold water. To top it off the author is a poor reader who drops her sentences and was rather monotonous. I was really looking forward to it too!

Wanderlust Mamas rejoice

This book spoke to my soul. Ever since I became a mother I have experienced the weight of the tension between home and adventure in my heart. Tsh so beautifully validates this tension and gives me hope that the two really can live in harmony.

Travel writing at it's best!

This is the kind of travel writing that has you grabbing for your passport and and a cup of tea at the same time. I found Tsh though her podcast "The Simple Show." I have binged many of her podcast episodes and finally thought I need to see (or hear) her writing if I love the podcast this much. This book did not disappoint. I would recommend it many times over. Especially if you are a homebody who loves to travel.

Surprisingly Uninteresting

Like traveling to fascinating places with someone who insists you only look at her not very interesting family pictures. If you are hoping to learn anything about different places, or are hoping to hear enthusiastic accounts of traveling in those places, this isn't that kind of book. No interesting observations or insights at all.

Wonderful book!

I love this book - hearing the author read their own material is great and I just love her story! I can resonate with the wanderlust, traveling with young children. I love hearing her personal journey of finding what home in this world is. Easy to listen to and great story for those who have a itch for travel, especially those with kids. H

Travel and learn

I loved this book of stories of family, travel, highs and lows of visiting many countries in a year as a family. I started listening to this at my home in Texas and continued on planes and airports to the Middle East and back and finished it working on my flower beds in the front yard. I can't wait to tell others about this book.

Good listen if you are a traveler

Enjoyed listening to the different places this family experienced on their trip.

Was looking for a little deeper meaning or even greater adventure - hard to do with three young kids in tow.

In the end I did enjoy it.

Delightful Memoir if traveling the world

This was a delightful book read by the author. I could see in detail the places she traveled and the pieces of the world she took with her. It’s definitely an inspirational read that makes me want to take my whole family and travel. I loved it. The pacing and reading of the author was wonderful and easy to follow. Great book to listen to while getting the housework done.
