My journey began in Louisville, Kentucky, USA. The city itself is quite special to me. There are loads of top-tier restaurants, a diverse music scene, parks, lakes, and spectacular views over the Ohio River from the center of the city, all the way out to the boondocks. Along the outskirts of Louisville is when the sites and sounds come to life. From gently rolling green fields with miles of split-rail fencing, to the horse farms of Shelby County and Oldham County, this is an exceptional stretch of earth. Even further from the city life is a scattering of stills and rickhouses that produce and hold 95% of the world’s bourbon. Louisville Slugger baseball bats are made right on Main St and distributed to Major League Baseball teams and consumers across the world. Lest we not forget the world’s most legendary race track, Churchill Downs, home to vast horse racing history and, of course, the Kentucky Derby. Yes, Louisville is a unique city indeed. It was difficult to leave, but God had plans for a new adventure… one that may never end.
