"Oxenreider makes a convincing case that travel with children is not just possible, but rewarding for all involved. Even those who wouldn't consider such an endeavor will enjoy going along for the ride on the page, and might be encouraged to take on new travel adventures with their families." -Booklist

For years I've identified with her simple living message, but the heart of that particular message isn't as compelling to me as the heart behind this book: finding a place of belonging, a home in the world, as both a homebody and an adventurer.
This has been a central tension in my life for at least the last fifteen years as I have moved, traveled and adventured in North America with my family. Where do I belong? Where is home? How do I even define home? These are the questions I have wrestled with and tried to answer. Sometimes I find an answer for a season, and sometimes the answers I've found don't hold true for the long term.
I love the travel stories in this book, to experience the world through Tsh's writing but I also especially appreciate the discussion of home and how we define home, and how we find home. And my list of must-see places in the world is fast growing.
The more chapters of this book I read the more I fall in love with the world, both as a geographically diverse place and our home as humanity. I love the world and people more though reading this book. Tsh experiences make me want to travel and trust more and worry less. I want to continue to challenge myself to true new things and be open to people and experiences.
I adore this book.
I am a totally homebody but have always wanted to travel. I have a list of places I want to go and things I want to see, mostly in the UK because I am an Anglophile. Unfortunately, I have never left the United States, I have no passport, and I have only been on airplane once. There is nothing wrong with this but I do hope to one day remedy all of those things! Tsh takes her family of five on a nine month trip around the world and many people thought she was crazy to do this with small children. It is a daunting and scary thought but I cannot imagine how amazing the education it would be for kids and adults alike.
At Home gives me Eat, Pray, Love vibes (another loved book-how did I not realize?) in that it is a See the World journey but also a bit of a find yourself/Spiritual journey for Tsh and I think we all need this. Finding home and finding our place in the world are, to me, the same thing and I love how Tsh found that balance between experiencing everything the world has to offer but still knowing she must have a place to lay her head. There are many funny moments that made me chuckle but there were also a lot of thoughtful and even teary-eyed moments that I completely related to as a wife, mother, and woman. I highly recommend you take the MMD reading personality quiz and if you’re an Explorer like me start with At Home in the World and if you are not and Explorer? I say read it anyway, it is that good!
I may never get the chance to take a similar trip myself, but this memoir has reminded me that wherever I do travel to I want to explore life in that place rather than check off boxes of things to do.
