For years I've identified with her simple living message, but the heart of that particular message isn't as compelling to me as the heart behind this book: finding a place of belonging, a home in the world, as both a homebody and an adventurer.
This has been a central tension in my life for at least the last fifteen years as I have moved, traveled and adventured in North America with my family. Where do I belong? Where is home? How do I even define home? These are the questions I have wrestled with and tried to answer. Sometimes I find an answer for a season, and sometimes the answers I've found don't hold true for the long term.
I love the travel stories in this book, to experience the world through Tsh's writing but I also especially appreciate the discussion of home and how we define home, and how we find home. And my list of must-see places in the world is fast growing.
The more chapters of this book I read the more I fall in love with the world, both as a geographically diverse place and our home as humanity. I love the world and people more though reading this book. Tsh experiences make me want to travel and trust more and worry less. I want to continue to challenge myself to true new things and be open to people and experiences.
I adore this book.
