  1. Sounds like a really fun trip. I’m sure you are glad you did this with your dad. Best part is you have some cool souvenirs to enjoy too.

  2. Thanks for sharing! Impressive bottle finds too! I’ve been hooked on various brown liquor since an Ireland trip 7 years ago. Recently our collection has grown and has some fun bottles from various vacation travels, that are tough to locate in and around KC.
