You Are Here – Siem Reap

Cambodia scores again! New YAH from this Southeast Asian country just hit the stores. Please meet You Are Here Siem Reap mug.
Siem Reap is a popular tourist destination in northwestern Cambodia. It has a large number of hotels, restaurants and resorts, mostly because of it being close to the Angkor temples, the most popular tourist attraction in Cambodia. Angkor was the capital city of the Khmer Empire. It was in a heyday between 9th to 15th centuries. … Read more

You Are Here – Den Haag

This is the third YAH from Netherlands. Again Starbucks has used native (in this case Dutch) version of the name – You Are Here – Den Haag. You probably know it better as The Hague. By coincidence this is the third-largest city in the Netherlands. Over 150 international organisations are hosted here. Probably the most noticeable are International Court of Justice (ICJ), the International Criminal Court (ICC).
The colors of the mug are pretty vivid, yet Icon collectors might not … Read more

You Are Here Disney – Disneyland 2

You probably remember how Starbucks replaced Hollywood Studios with second version. Many wondered if other Disney YAHs will eventually be replaced. Looks like we have the answer now, because Hollywood Studios v2 has just been released. The mug looks great and it has aroused excitement among many collectors – enough to mention it was sold out within a day. I really hope Starbucks has more in stock as the hype in demand will remain high for some time.
I’ve … Read more

You Are Here – France

Allons enfants de la Patrie, Le jour de gloire est arrivé!
Anyone wondering why am I singing La Marseillaise? Guess what? First European country YAH – France was released this week. Someone won’t agree but I think this mug is really beautiful. I really love dark blue mugs, in first place, but this one is special.
Mountains, Mont Saint-Michel, grapes, cheese and wine (back of the mug) – all you need to know about France (according to Starbucks).… Read more

You Are Here – Aberdeen

Scotland scores again. Welcome the new mug from You Are Here series – Aberdeen. This city is only third by population in Scotland, yet it now has YAH and Glasgow doesn’t. Don’t forget, Edinburgh has been released long time ago too. Hey, Starbucks, what is your logic? It’s not like I am complaining, just trying to understand you.
As for the mug itself, I would like to mention Aberdeen Beach and Queens Links which is famous for it’s golden sand. … Read more

You Are Here – Newcastle Upon Tyne

While on vacation I missed to add two new mugs from the You Are Here series list. Starbucks in not very consistent in releasing those – one week we get nothing, the other week we get two. Anyway, please welcome Newcastle Upon Tyne mug.
This city from North East England, also commonly called simply Newcastle, is the most populous in this region. As you can see from the pic, The Castle is seen on the front of mug, which gave … Read more

You Are Here – Mykonos

There were some speculations about Corfu store reopening and I kind of expected a Corfu YAH to come out. Even though people wanted a re-release of Corfu Icon, I knew it will be YAH. I guess everyone was wrong since Starbucks surprised us with You Are Here Mykonos mug instead.
What can I say about that mug? It’s Greece – so lots of sun, sea and white houses with blue windows covering mountains and hills. It’s beautiful and everyone … Read more

yah_marrakech

You Are Here – Marrakech

Like I mentioned in my previous post about Casablanca, two Moroccan You Are Here mugs were simultaneously released. This is the second of them – Marrakech. Please note, Starbucks used French spelling instead of commonly used – Marrakesh. From what I understand only these two cities in Morocco have Starbucks stores, so it kind of explains the choice for these mugs.
Interesting fact – many cities in Morocco have fortified center filled with vendors which is called medinaRead more

You Are Here – Casablanca

New week, new release from Starbucks. Two new You Are Here mugs – Casablanca and Marrakech. Both from the same country – Morocco.
Casablanca is the largest city in Morocco with the population of over 5 millions. It was initially named Anfa before the Portuguese took the city over and renamed it to CasaBranca (white house in Portuguese). Later when Portugal was the part of Spanish kingdom it was adjusted to Casablanca (spanish version). Even though it was given … Read more
