When I started my job in 2013, Kentucky was one of the most expensive places to visit.
The cost of a ticket in the capital city was $9,500 and the price of a night at a hotel in the state capital was $10,000.
The cost of renting a car in Louisville was $11,800.
That was a lot of money.
But it was a small price to pay for the thrill of experiencing a Kentucky city and its sights, including a Kentucky Shakespeare Festival and a Kentucky Kentucky Farmers Market.
I would take my family and friends with me to Kentucky, and it was one thing to get to know a town; it was another to experience it for ourselves.
As a result, I began to consider other places that I could visit that would also offer the same experience.
While visiting some of the best places in the world for sightseeing or shopping, I was inspired by a couple of things: first, a Kentucky native named Steve and his wife, Mary, and, second, the fact that I had spent so much time in the United States.
They told me they wanted to travel to Kentucky because they loved it so much, and I was glad to oblige.
It took me a while to realize what I was missing.
So what’s the deal?
I am a self-described American.
And I was born and raised in America.
When I was a teenager, my family emigrated from Canada and settled in the small town of Kent, Kentucky, in the late 1960s.
I remember the excitement and pride of that moment: we were the first Canadians to move to Kentucky.
A few years later, in 1970, the United Nations granted us permanent resident status, which gave us citizenship.
I had been born in Canada, but I knew that my parents were Canadian citizens.
I never felt any tension about this.
They weren’t here to tell me I had to do what they wanted, but they knew I was American, and they wanted me to make it my life.
That was the way it was supposed to be.
I didn’t know that I was an American until I was 15, and after a few years of living in Canada with my family, I moved to the United Kingdom in 1975.
The first time I went to the US was to visit my parents in Scotland.
I was so excited to get back to Kentucky to visit them.
But I knew there were other people who lived in Kentucky who didn’t.
And I didn’t really feel welcome.
There were times when I felt like I was being treated as a second-class citizen.
And there were times I felt as though the people who were supposed to represent me were not the people I was used to seeing.
In fact, many of the people in my life felt the opposite.
Kentucky had been a country I had always loved, and my family had been part of it for more than 80 years.
But for many years, there were people who thought I didn, or should, be an American.
They thought I had come to Kentucky only to live in it and be an Englishman.
My parents, Mary and Steve, had grown up in the American South and had never had any experience living in the British Isles.
They lived in New York, which had no formal ties to the British Commonwealth, and had no real British culture.
I don’t know how many of my Scottish friends grew up in this same way.
And they didn’t grow up in England, either.
When I arrived in Kentucky, I thought that it would be a different story.
Kentucky was a different place than it had been for decades.
My parents had never been to the Old Country before they moved to Kentucky and they weren’t sure if the locals would even want to see me.
We decided to go to a farm in the town of Horseshoe Bay, and we were met by a group of farmers who told us they were from the South.
I immediately understood what it was like to live with these people.
From their looks, they seemed like they were the ones who would know what to do with us, and if I didn�t want to learn English, they would just let me speak in their language. They didn�ve ever been to a farmers� market, but the smell of manure and the stench of corn made me think of a farm sale.
They wanted to show me around, so I had no choice but to spend the first few days on the farm with them.
When I was about seven years old, my parents decided to sell me a piece of land in Horsesays Bay to help fund my education.
By the time I graduated from high school, I knew the English language.
As a young child, I used to come home and ask my parents, “Mom, why do
