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".

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

Awaken your own wanderlust

Tsh's family story was already familiar to me as I listen to her podcast and follow her blog, but I couldn't wait to hear more details in At Home in the World. Tsh doesn't disappoint. She doesn't shy away from describing the difficulties of traveling around the world with 3 children, but her focus is on the amazing experiences they have, the similarities they see amongst people from wildly different cultures and the way they all grow (grownups included) over the course of their 9 months of travel. Not all authors can successfully perform the audio for their own books, but Tsh has a wonderful voice perfect for narrating her own story.

Favorite quote: "Tea drinking is a liturgy of comfort, and we partake of it everywhere in the world. It's a ceremony of simplicity, nourishment for both the nomads in foreign teahouses and homebodies in their beds."

A really fun listen!

This one was really fun to listen to in the car on a road trip. I really enjoyed listening to the stories of the places she visited with her family. It did leave me wanting a bit more though and I wish they had traveled to South America!
