Summary
<p>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.</p> <p>The wide world is calling.</p> <p>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.</p> <p>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.</p> <p>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.</p> <p>"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</p>
