The wide world is calling.

Why not? The kids are all old enough to carry their own backpacks but still young enough to be uprooted, so a tripa nine-months-long tripis planned.

Steph E5 Stars Out Of 5Extremely satisfying read! Satisfies both wanderlust & home-body-ness! :DMarch 24, 2017Steph EQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Something I appreciated about this travel memoir is Tsh does such a great job of putting you in the location--whether it's the splash of Victoria falls, the spicy tea in Turkey, or the colors Great Barrier Reef. She manages to weave in both reflections on what it means to be at home wherever you are, and concrete details about the practicality of traveling with 3 young kids. It satisfied both my desire to reflect more deeply on what it means to find "home" even in constant transition, as my more practical curiosity. (Really? 3 kids? How did you manage that?). This mix of sensory detail, travel strategies, and deeper reflection weaves together into an extremely satisfying read. Made me simultaneously want to pack my bags and surf the net for my next adventure, while at the same time snuggle down on the couch with my family and enjoy being "rooted" for a moment. Exactly what I want in a travel book!
