Tsh and her vagabonding family once traveled around the world for a school year. Together, they love to travel and explore new cultures. Even if they currently live in Central Texas, several dots around the globe have also been called home. Besides, Tsh dreams of one day living in Stars Hollow. They also read books together, go camping together, and make homemade pizza for family movie night together. Tsh thinks a library card, a Netflix subscription, and a passport are some of the greatest parenting tools in the universe.
Her passion—besides writing, of course—is to create space in life for the stuff that matters, to make globally-minded choices, and to live unconventionally—and then help others do the same.
Tsh’s writing has been featured in Real Simple magazine, CNN, Washington Post, CNBC, and more, and has been mentioned on Apartment Therapy, HGTV, Better Homes and Gardens, Food Network, NPR, Parents magazine, and more.

Let’s talk now about her new book, At Home in the World (April 2017).
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.
The wide world is calling.
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.
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.
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.
“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
