At Home in the World : Reflections on Belonging While Wandering the Globe (Unabridged) (CD/Spoken Word)
About this item
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 this new memoir, Tsh Oxenreider shares the story of how her family spent a rather ordinary nine months in an extraordinary way: traveling the corners of the earth to see, firsthand, the places they’ve always wanted to explore. She 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 the gradual awareness of all the world teaches about itself, its inhabitants, and the places we call home.
At Home in the World invites readers to travel the globe without the cost of a ticket; to discover the people, places, and stories worth knowing about; to belong in the familiar and yet feel at home outside of it; and to learn how, as the Thai say, that in the end we are all “same same but different.”
