Yes, I know, I’ve just posted a new article two days ago – but, I’ve had two great days in Kentucky, and want to share a short episode about the joy of traveling by myself…
Today I went on a tour through one of the famous Bourbon distilleries here in Bardstown, Kentucky – the Heaven Hill Distillery. The tip to visit Bardstown – otherwise I’ld never have thought about a detour to this nice little town – came from the very helpful person at the Kentucky Welcome Center. It’s always a good idea, when you happen to come to a new State, to stop at these Welcome Center. They are very helpful, answer lots of questions and give you all materials you need.
On the tour we were just a few people, cause it’s off season. So at the Bourbon tasting we happened to talk a bit – I guess drinking some Bourbon in early afternoon helps loosen the tongue 😉 Afterwards I went to stroll through the small town a bit, looking for a place to get some food. I found a local Diner, exact one of the ones I love so much. I’d just sat down, when a couple from Cincinnati, who had also taken part of the tour, came inside and joined me for dinner, well they didn’t just join me, they invited me.
The friendliness of some people always amazes me, and it’s this surprising encounter I so much value!
And here comes the summary in pictures 😉
