I admit, I love Starbucks Coffee. Give me a white chocolate mocha, pumpkin spice or my favorite, a caramel macchiato with an extra shot of espresso and I am one very, happy camper! Imagine my surprise when Leif (my husband) told me after the fact that I moved, they did not have a Starbucks in their city. 😲 Would this have been a determining factor in whether or not I said yes when he asked me to marry him? Hmmm………
No worries. Although it was tough in the beginning, I am very happy to share that our little city has some wonderful cafes where they serve up delicious coffee drinks, a fresh croissant and honey for the price of one Starbucks coffee.
This time of year it is so nice to sit outside, enjoy a coffee and conversation with friends. One of my newest favorite pastimes is to sit back and watch the english speaking tourists. I love listening to them talk about our beautiful city in my native language!
So, I have to say, I don’t really miss Starbucks now. I do take advantage of picking up a fresh cup of one of may favorite flavors when we travel though!
