In 2017, I walked the Camino de Santiago from St. Jean Pied-de-Port nestled in the French Pyrenees, 800 km in the hot Spanish sun to Santiago de Compostela in Galicia, Spain. The adventure was transformational and moving from the US to Spain with my husband, Jeff, was the logical next step. Except, well, stop right there! Because it wasn’t that simple.
Today, we live on a lavender farm on the Camino Frances between Palas de Rei and Melide in Lugo, Spain. And I won’t lie, it’s Magic. Who knows? Perhaps I’ll just get a book out of all of this.
Over the course of my life, I’ve always written stories. On cocktail napkins, the backs of menus while traveling for work. I was a storyteller before I found my voice as a writer. And I’ve finally decided to turn it into something. Let’s see where it goes. If you want to read other things by KD Field, check out The Red Rhino on Amazon. It’s a funny collection of essays about living life, raising kids and getting through it all. More essay collections to come – a few books worth in the bag. Some have been published in the online British literary magazine The Cabinet of Heed. I also write a monthly humor column in The Euro Weekly News, Spain’s largest English-language newspaper. And my first novel – The Grief of Goodbye – is completed, set in beautiful Northern Spain. The manuscript was a finalist in the 2021 Page Turner Writing Awards and the book will launch in summer 2023. As you might guess, I’ll keep you posted on all the details. 😉
This blog is meant to not only entertain, but to be informative for those who are looking to dip their toe into living abroad (Valencia and Galicia for us, so far) and following their dreams. With maybe a few laughs thrown in! If you find the information useful or have questions, please reach out.
