Theme:There may be “no place like home,” but for many people, home is where their heart leads them.

Mrs. Tilby has decided that her life in a small town is not all she wants, so she sets off on a trip. After visiting many places — including the city, the seashore and the mountains — she buys a camper so she can be “at home” wherever she is.

LeVar’s “travel” room is filled with mementos of his many trips. He shares memories of places he’s been, things he’s done and people he’s met — a New York City rooftop garden and a man who raises homing pigeons; the seashore and a schooner sailing trip; and a Hawaiian volcano and a potter who creates raku pottery.
