At Home in the World: Reflections on Belonging While Wandering the Globe


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 thirties and as a mom to three kids under age ten, 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.”

    I absolutely adore this travel memoir from Tsh Oxenreider. I'm a longtime fan of her blog, The Art of Simple, and her podcast, The Simple Show, and this book is like a longform version of both. Tsh's ...

    I have used the word "smitten" to describe my feelings after reading this book. A memoir about travel and about home: what home is and what home means. A must read for anyone who loves travel or loves...

    I was very fortunate to be on the advance team for this book! Reading it was like taking a hot bubble bath, eating just-out-of-the-oven chocolate chip cookies, or a sipping glass of wine on your back ...

    4.5 stars. This was wonderful and simultaneously made me want to go on #allthetrips but also hang pictures on the walls and curl up in "my spot" in a home. Full review to come....

    The writing is lovely, but I didn't get much out of it - I think this book was adapted from blog posts, and unfortunately I did not feel it carried over well as a cohesive whole. On their own many ind...

    3.5 stars. I really enjoyed this travel memoir, a most interesting journey around the world with three children (ages 4, 6, and 10) in tow. I enjoyed the format and style of the book, hearing about th...

    This book. Wow. I totally felt like I was traveling around the world with the Oxenreider family. So that was fun. But my favorite part about this book was the discussion of "what does home mean?". Thi...
