Adventure is my theme as I prepare to leave my cozy home in Saint Paul, Minnesota to spend a year in Denmark on a communal, organic farm. There are many reasons behind this move, which I’ll explore on this blog, as well as document my journey with photographs, tales, and reflections.
I am a novice blogger, so the reader will need to bear with me as I learn how to navigate this world of word and images. It’s a new form of communication for me, at once both intimate and public. One of my many goals for the year is to improve my writing style so that others will find my words entertaining, or at least interesting.
Other goals include learning Danish, seeing a lot of my daughter (the major reason for my move), traveling, processing my thoughts and emotions over the death of my husband three years ago, and figuring out what I want to do in this next stage of my life. A young retiree at age 56, I’m ready to do some exploring, both internally and externally. Welcome along on my adventure.
This is in my “favorites” now…so I will check in regularly. Don’t stress out about the writing…you write very well. And we will delight in keeping track of your journey.
Thank you for taking us along on your journey Katy. I look forward to witnessing each step you choose to share with those of us who love you and support you. Mary Cayan
Hope that things get settled over there and that you find time to continue your blog, Katy!
Thank you for the great photos of Iceland and your first days in Denmark. The ice-cream alone looks worth the trip! Thinking of you as you settle into your new life!

Thanks for taking the time to do this. It is interesting to reflect on your life as it takes such a different trajectory from mine here on Black Duck Drive. I wish you days full of peace, reflection, growth, and hope.
What a delightful description of a delightful country. We have many friends in Denmark and have visited there often. Idealic, to be sure! You’ve picked a winner! Maurice Howe
