9 MONTHS, 5 BACKPACKS, 4 CONTINENTS, 3 KIDS, 1 HUSBAND.'I have an idea...'
This is the story of how a family spent an ordinary nine months in an extraordinary way: circumnavigating the earth to see, firsthand, the places they’ve always wanted to explore. Through paper lanterns in Thailand, three-foot-wide Venetian passageways, the community of strangers in Zimbabwe, and beyond, Tsh Oxenreider unearths the dance between wanderlust and rootedness; how to be both lost and at home in the world. “Sacred ordinariness,” she writes, “can be found anywhere on the globe.”Pre-Order TodayExplore More

Meet Tsh Oxenreider
Not too long ago, Tsh’s husband looked at her one evening after the kids had gone to bed and said, “Let’s do this—let’s finally buy the tickets and hit the road.” It was time to embark on a dream they’d been planning for years: to travel around the world with their three kids and discover places new and old. And so, they did. They each strapped on a backpack and headed westbound, first for Asia.
Traveling taught Tsh more about home than she ever imagined.
Tsh is the author of Notes from a Blue Bike and Organized Simplicity, the founder of the community blog The Art of Simple, and the podcaster behind The Simple Show. Her writing has been featured in the Washington Post, CNN, Real Simple magazine, and more. A Longhorn graduate of the University of Texas, where she studied English and anthropology, Tsh currently lives just outside Austin, Texas with her family and eats tacos several times a week.
