You Are Here – Luxembourg

Starbucks You Are Here – Luxembourg is the first YAH mug for this country. Something tells me it will be the only one since this collection is being phased out. The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is one of the smallest countries in Europe but is also one of the richest countries in the world as per GDP per capita and purchasing power.
The design of the mug is very laconic with few elements (apart from the city street with the old buildings):
– The Adolphe Bridge is a double-decked arch bridge in Luxembourg City.… Read more

You Are Here Ornament Christmas – Turkey

A brand new release has just popped up online. This is You Are Here Ornament Christmas – Turkey which is the second Holiday mini mug from this country. The first one is the Istanbul ornament of course. And just as a reminder, it remains the only city Christmas ornament outside of the US!

You Are Here Christmas – Ireland

Starbucks You Are Here Christmas – Ireland is the latest addition to the Holiday mugs family.

I would also like to point at Santa Claus’s sleigh at the roof of the house (see the back of the mug). Speaking out of my head, I don’t recall this nice little detail from any other Christmas mugs.

You Are Here Christmas – Malta

Starbucks You Are Here Christmas – Malta is a full size Holiday Country mug. This will be somewhat hard to get since it’s an island in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea. You have to go all way down to Sicily and then take a ferry to get there. An easier solution can be a plane, obviously. See the regular mug and the ornament posts for more info about Malta.

Been There – Turks & Caicos

Starbucks Been There – Turks & Caicos is the mug for a British Overseas Territory which consists of two groups of islands: the larger Caicos Islands and smaller Turks Islands. Being the perfect touristic destination it welcomes hundreds of thousands of visitors each year, which is a lot, considering the size of the islands and the population of about 40k people.
Surely enough, sea life exploration and numerous water activities are what inspired the designers of the mug.
