    Kentucky Bourbon

    I think if you're heading to Kentucky, then this should be on your 'must do' list as part of the history of this area. I should add as part of the 'when in Rome' theory, I also did this ;):eek: lol.

    Kentucky Bourbon

    The tour takes you through the history of the relationship between Evan Williams and how bourbon was produced in the early days pre and post prohibition days. Surprised to learn of the relationship with the Beam name. The door to the 'speak easy' looked like a bank vault. Inside the...

    Kentucky - Thunder Over Louisville.

    The only downside to this event was the road blocks after the show. All access to the freeways and side streets are blocked off until 11:30pm, which even the locals don't understand. It took us about 1 and a half hours to move about 5 miles. It is recommended to sit it out, relax and have a...

    Kentucky - Thunder Over Louisville.

    With the airshow finished, it was time for the fireworks. A fantastic display with fireworks off the bridge and barges on the Ohio River. Easily the best I've ever seen.

    Kentucky - Thunder Over Louisville.

    All of the flyby's were fantastic, but my favourites were definitely the military jets going ballistic towards the heavens. Here are some pics of the airshow, with photo credit to my D.I.L.

If anyone has an itinerary with nearby destinations in late April, I can highly recommend adding in 'Thunder Over Louisville' for a fantastic day out. 'Thunder Over Louisville' features one of...

    Is a first class award really worth it?

    I've done F twice to Europe and absolutely loved it (especially SQ Suites). Now that I've ticked it off the list, I'm more than happy to "slum" it in J. I really wanted to experience it though, and given that I don't accumulate points as easily these days (thanks NAB ), would rather do more...
