Publisher's Summary

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".

    Story
    "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.

    "I might be the only one who didn't love it."

    I don't know what it was. I liked her, but something about the book bugged me. I can't put my finger on it.

    Story
    "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

    Story
    "I just traveled the world while never leaving home"

    I loved this book and the rich descriptions. I feel like I got a very real glimpse of what it would be like to visit each of the countries that you can't get from reading geography books. We are studying geography in our homeschool this year and I plan to replay each chapter that corresponds with a country or area of the world we are studying.

    Story
    "Delightful travel memoir"

    The way Tsh writes I truly felt that either I was with their family on their year long journey around the world or she was a dear friend telling me about their travels. The stories in At Home in the World have stayed with me and have created a warm glow in my soul.

    "wanderlust is always on my mind"

    I really enjoyed At Home in the World. I too can relate in wanting to have a place to call home and also to travel without reservations. Tsh's story resonated with me although I do not have children. This is a book I will ask everyone to read that earns for an adventure, especially those with children.

    Story
    "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!

    Story
    "Writing that whisks you away"

    This is a reflection on traveling and on finding oneself along the way. The writing whisks you away so you feel as though you are traveling with this family of five. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and thought the author's writing really brought the journey to life.

    The author's narration was wonderful as well.
