You Are Here – Lille

Starbucks You Are Here Lille mug has been spotted in stores this week. This is the city in French Flanders, on the north of France, right next to the Belgium border. Here are some points of interest spotted on the mug:
– The Porte de Paris (“Gate of Paris”) is an Arc de Triomphe built in the 17th century to commemorate Louis XIV conquering the city. It looks like a building, rather than an arch, which makes it special.
– Chambre de commerce de Lille with its majestic 250ft high belfry.… Read more

You Are Here – Bergen

YAH city mugs are still in trend in Europe, and we get Starbucks You Are Here – Bergen as a proof of that. Bergen is the second-largest city in Norway. It is surrounded by mountains with certain areas of the city located on islands. Thanks to a temperate oceanic climate, Bergen’s weather is warmer than other Norwegian cities on this latitude. The Gulf Stream keeps the sea relatively warm, and the mountains protect the city from cold winds from the north, north-east, and east.… Read more

You Are Here – Bordeaux

It seems that Starbucks You Are Here – Bordeaux mug will be released soon. Along with the announcement on their FB page, we get the sneak peek of the mug itself. They showed us a slightly open box from where we can see “BOR” letters combination and red, blue and white colors used for the design. I can also see a glass of wine, which is an undisputable symbol of this French municipality. This port on the Garonne River has been a well-known center of the wine-growing region for ages.… Read more

You Are Here – Dublin

With the Ireland mug comes You Are Here – Dublin. Together, they form a beautiful pair which makes the trip to Irand twice as exciting.
The most noticeable elements on the front of the mug are:
– Ha’penny Bridge – Dublin’s oldest pedestrian bridge over the River Liffey. It’s so-called because you once had to pay half a penny to cross it. Its official name is the Liffey Bridge, and it was built in May 1816 and became one of the most famous bridges in the city.… Read more

You Are Here – Brugge

It was quite some time since we saw the last European city being released within YAH series. That’s what makes today’s news more exciting because it’s You Are Here – Brugge mug which has been spotted in Belgium this morning.
When you look in the google trends for the word “Bruges”, there was definitely a spike in interest in 2008, that’s when the movie “In Bruges” came out. To be honest with you, I’ve never heard about this city before that movie and I believe this applies to many people to the West of the Atlantic ocean.… Read more

You Are Here – Qujing

When we thought Starbucks is done with releasing Chinese mugs, they come with the new one. You Are Here – Qujing is the latest addition to an already huge family.
It is mostly nature which occupies the sides of the mug. We see mountains, hills, rivers, waterfalls, and forests. There is only one man made landmark on the front and it is Puli Bridge – a suspension bridge which is 1,591 ft tall (one of the highest in the world).

You Are Here Ornament – Phuket

Similar to two Thailand YAHs coming out together, there are also two minis in the batch. Starbucks You Are Here Ornament Phuket is accompanying Pattaya and I believe will be available in stores together with the latter (somewhere in April). The ornament has the navy string, and as you can see, it is of the regular shape. Not sure what I am talking about? Just compare it to the string used for Thailand YAH Ornament, which was the only mini with this type of string (flat ribbon, instead of rope).… Read more

You Are Here Ornament – Pattaya

This is good news for mini mugs collectors, because previously announced Pattaya YAH comes with a smaller brother, Starbucks You Are Here Ornament Pattaya. The inside of the ornament is pink, as well as the string. Just a reminder, it’s not been released officially yet, wait for the April to get it.
Update: since it has been released, I’ve added a collage of all its sides:

You Are Here – Phuket

Here’s the second mug for Thailand to be released soon – Starbucks You Are Here – Phuket. And since Phuket is an island known for amazing beaches and resorts, we again see some ocean scenery to be used for the design of the mug. As an addition to that, there are some houses representing Sino-Portuguese architecture. It is a mix of European and Chinese styles and is coming from the era of Western imperialism when Portuguese settlers hired Chinese workers to build houses and other facilities for them.… Read more

You Are Here – Pattaya

With the reveal of Starbucks You Are Here – Pattaya mug it has become evident that the company decided to fill some gaps within YAH series in Asia. It is worth mentioning that we did have Thailand country mugs, regular and Christmas edition, both released in 2017, at the beginning and at the end of the year, respectively.
As for Pattaya mug, it is not an official release yet, but a sneak peek by an avid collector. We only have blurry images at the moment and so far I can see the ocean, the beach, palm trees and hotels along the bay – a perfect kit for an amazing vacation.… Read more
