I write most of my blogs with intent. I try to be insightful or thought provoking in sharing my lifestyle. Sometimes I try to be helpful by providing tips and tricks. But I have to admit that after a very hectic April filled with work and travel, I was simply braindead. I needed a vacation. So while this video blog probably won’t inspire you to change the world… maybe it will just give you a few minutes of a vacation with me.
With a week off in Kentucky, and a brain itching for a vacation, we hopped on the Bourbon Trail one more time…
By coincidence, our free week happened to be the same weekend as the 144th Kentucky Derby. This was both a blessing and a curse. There is certainly no place more exciting to spend the derby than in Kentucky… but I’ve never been one for hoards of people, so we decided to avoid Louisville at all costs. I was happy with this decision because I had been hoping to explore some newer, less mainstream distilleries anyway.
In 4 days we were able to visit 10 distilleries, ride a dinner train, and enjoy the Derby in a Kentucky tavern. But now you can experience it in just 8 minutes, enjoy!
