Been There Ornament – New Zealand

Starbucks Been There Ornament – New Zealand is a fresh release from the latest mini-series. Compared to a bigger mug, it lost very few design elements and is still featuring many symbols and points of interest from this remote country. Here are some of them:

We’re yet to see all the sides to confirm if there are elements unique to the ornament. The string is green, as is the inside of the mug.

Here’s the link, to a full-size sibling of this ornament where I’ve mentioned that the front of the mug features dromedary (camel) and Al-Khazneh – “The Treasury” (Arabic) – amazing ancient temple. … Read more
