Book Rec: At Home in the World by Tsh Oxenreider

This book spoke to my soul. Having embarked on my own year of travel, this book captured so many of my thoughts and feelings through the last year. While not traveling with a husband and 3 kids in tow, it reminded me that having a family doesn’t mean the end to wanderlust. And it is possible to continue seeing the world while raising a family.


Book Summary of At Home in the World

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, so a trip—a nine-months-long trip—is planned.


At Home in the World follows their journey from China to New Zealand, Ethiopia to England, and more. 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.
