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 – Rotterdam

Christmas is over, hence no excuse to not release new YAHs! Welcome brand new You Are Here Rotterdam, the fifth Dutch mug from this series.
From the front of the mug:
The Erasmus Bridge – the 2,631 ft (802m long) bridge across the New Meuse completed in 1996. Due to asymmetrical shape of it’s main pylon, the bridge earned it’s nickname “The Swan”
– City Skyline
– soccer ball – for Feyenoord Rotterdam I believe – a professional soccer club which has a huge national support.… Read more

You Are Here – Netherlands

I do remember the days when Amsterdam was the only International mug from YAH series! It appeared in 2013 for a short time and was considered HTF till it has been re-released again in 2016. Since then we had two other Dutch cities and this month, finally, You Are Here Netherlands.
It has very aesthetically appealing design and I bet I saw these bikes somewhere else (Oregon?).… 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 like it.… 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.
Similar to my previous post from today, there is no Icon or Relief for this city.… Read more
