ABOUT THE BOOK
Excess Baggage: One Family's Around-the-World Search for Balance
Tracey Carisch thought she had it all. As a wife, mother, and successful executive, she seemed to be living the modern American dream. But one night, a panic attack sent her tumbling into a midlife crisis and questioning everything. That’s when she and her husband made a decision that shocked their family and friends: they sold everything they owned, pulled their three young daughters out of school, and became a family of wandering globetrotters.
Loaded with hilarious mishaps as well as deeply meaningful revelations, Excess Baggage chronicles the Carisch family’s extraordinary eighteen-month adventure across six continents, bringing to mind the spiritual journey of Eat Pray Love – and the comical mishaps of National Lampoon’s Vacation.
Through Tracey’s insightful and poignant narrative, the reader will discover the life lessons of an around-the-world journey without leaving home.

Cassandra's Review- Could you imagine having the strength to leave everything and redo your lifestyle choices? Would you have the courage to sell all of your belongings and travel around the world with your kids? The author shares more than just her adventures in this easy to read and well written book. I would recommend it for the reader that feels held back in life.
