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

You Are Here – Roermond

Do you remember good old days when Amsterdam was the only YAH outside of US? Since then so many mugs were released that International YAHs outnumbered US YAHs. Well, the second Dutch You Are Here mug is finally here – Roermond. The color scheme is very much different from Amsterdam YAH, and is mostly orange. I expected to see both churches depicted – St. Christopher’s Cathedral and Roermond Minster or ‘Munsterkerk’, but could only recognize the first.

yah_kuching

You Are Here – Kuching

What a week! Two new YAHs were announced today. This one is the first You Are Here mug from Malaysia – Kuching.
City of Kuching is the capital and the biggest city in Sarawak (Malaysian state). I have to say Starbucks chose interesting palette for this mug – black, red and grey. Quick search brings us to the answer – these are colors of Sarawak flag.

yah_salzburg

You Are Here – Salzburg

Remember Vienna? This is his brother – Salzburg. Yes, the second You Are Here mug from Austria.
Salzburg is the fourth-largest city in Austria and literally means “Salt Fortress”. It’s centre is very well preserved and is even considered World Heritage Site according to UNESCO.
The front of the mug shows Alps, obviously, and skis. I didn’t see the back of the mug, but I expect it has some musical instrument on it, since Mozart was born here. I … Read more

You Are Here Ornament – Phoenix

I’ve been on the trip and missed this new release from Arizona. So let me introduce new Ornament from You Are Here series – Phoenix, which is obviously the complete copy of it’s bigger brother. The color of the string is gold (no surprise).
To be honest I was more excited about the rumors coming along with this release. It was reported by insiders, that this is the first in a batch of 25 US ornaments coming soon! Sounds … Read more

rumor_yah_china

You Are Here – China

It was only yesterday when I complained about no new releases recently and voila, we get some rumors about China You Are Here releases. See the pic? I can’t believe my eyes – Christmas YAHs in June? Really? Starbucks, please have mercy. So far we see three mugs. Two of them are: Shanghai, Nanjing. The third one is hard to identify.
Well, I hope these are not just rumored mugs like it happened to Amsterdam Christmas YAH

Another blurry image … Read more

yah_lisboa

You Are Here – Lisboa

I was little bit disappointed about Starbucks not releasing any new YAH recently. I got used to new release every week or even more often. It has been two weeks since my last post and finally they took pity on us. No less than the first Portugal YAH – please meet Lisboa You Are Here mug.
Again we see Starbucks used native version of the name of the city – Lisboa instead of Lisbon, something we’ve seen with Icons already.… Read more

yah_marseille

You Are Here – Marseille

It has been two weeks since the last release from the You Are Here series. This is the post for those who started to get worried – here you go, brand new, shiny Marseille mug. This one is the sixth from France, not counting Christmas YAH. Marseille is the second largest city in France after Paris
I’ve seen pictures of Marseille before at they were always bright and beautiful. It is officially the sunniest major city in France, and … Read more
