You Are Here – Utrecht

Starbucks keeps delivering! Second 2018 YAH is here and it is You Are Here Utrecht, straight from Netherlands. This colorful mug is the sixth from this country.
From the mug:
– Beaches along the banks of river Rheine.
Utrecht Centraal – largest and busiest railway station in the Netherlands
And that’s pretty much it. Although I really like recent YAHs, especially the choice of colors, I would include more landmarks for Utrecht. Specifically the iconic Domtoren, a 14th-century bell tower with city views or the Gothic Cathedral of St.Read more

You Are Here – Prague 2

Would you have guessed what is the first YAH of 2018? Under no circumstances would I bet on a second version of the existing mug from Europe!
