Join The June Ultimate Coffee Date

Well, hello June! Does it feel like summer where you are? While I start my day with coffee on even the hottest days, I’ve also got lemonade if you’d rather have that while we get together for the Ultimate Coffee Date Link Up. Deborah and I hope you take this opportunity to share what’s going on in your lives, get to know each other better and support each other in all our endeavors. So, make sure you leave comments on other blogs in the link up and visit Deborah at Confessions Of A Mother Runner.

June Jabbering At The Ultimate Coffee Date

If we were having coffee, I’d ask if you noticed the cicadas as you came up the walk.

I can’t believe how noisy they are! 

If we were having coffee, I would have to share my foreign Starbucks experiences from my April business trips. We stayed at a new-to-me hotel on my trip to Copenhagen, and I laughed when I saw this big neon sign on the building on the next block. I promise I didn’t look up Starbucks locations when I selected that hotel!

While Starbucks isn’t that common in Copenhagen,
there was an astounding number of Starbucks in Seoul

We figured out which one was closest to our hotel, and I managed to order my grande dark roast despite the language barrier. It was even more expensive than it is here, though.

You can make fun of me for my Starbucks addiction, but it’s nice to have a familiar-tasting cup of coffee when everything else is so different!

If we were having coffee, I’d ask you to consider supporting the American Heart Association through my Lawyers Have Heart donations page.  My Dad is why I give to this cause, but if you’re hesitating I’ve got five other reasons that may resonate more for you.

If you went overseas, would you visit Starbucks or a local coffee shop?

    Depends… I think I’d go for local. But there is something to be said for the comfort of knowing what to expect.

  2. We don’t seem to have the cicadas (or summer).

    Sometimes I try to find a local tea place, but I’m like the only person who doesn’t do Starbucks apparently.

  3. Cicadas already? We usually hear them later in the summer. I kind of like their song! But they’re so creepy, how they fly so slow…

    I’d go for Starbucks in a foreign country, just for a taste of home.

    Judging by the number of Starbucks mugs the Caveman brought back from Asia for me, the whole continent seems to be filled with them. I’d go and grab a mug…and some coffee of course! No cicadas here yet, but they’re coming…

  5. Teresa says:

    Cicada’s usually make their appearance later in the summer down here in the South and yes, they are loud!

    I’d definitely go for Starbucks in Asia but in Europe …I’d definitely go for the local flair!

    Have fun at your race! Thanks for the link up πŸ™‚

  6. Ha, I’d probably visit Starbucks too! When I visited over seas I actually ate at a Pizza Hut!

  7. well it seems as though you stayed at the perfect hotel! When we travel, I like to check out the local coffee shops and different coffees. In Hawaii, they had the best coffee! I am thinking about signing up for the 10K next week will be a last minute decision. Always love catching up over coffee!

  8. I can’t even actually remember the last time I went to Starbucks – so I think i’d have to go local. I can totally understand how comforting it would be to see something familiar in a foreign country though.

  9. My brother travels to Asia quite a bit for business and he’s mentioned the crazy number of Starbucks there!

    No cicadas here yet, but I know they’re coming!

    Thanks for coffee! Have a good weekend!

  10. Too funny! If I’m only in town for a day or two, I go local but if I am somewhere for more days, I’ll hit the ‘bucks to see what’s different πŸ™‚

  11. Darlene says:

    Yes, I admit it. I’m a Starbucks snob.

  12. HoHo Runs says:

    You know I’d choose Starbucks. I heard the cicadas this afternoon in my back yard. Like my sister says when she visits, “you live in the noisiest quiet place I know. Thanks for the linkup!

  13. I’ve still only seen two cicadas out here in the western suburbs, not that I’m complaining… Since I don’t like coffee, I wouldn’t have a need to visit either Starbucks or a local coffee shop. πŸ˜‰

    As always, thanks for the linkup!

  14. I like trying new foods when traveling, though we don’t venture out of the country (unless you count Cancun or Hawaii LOL). I would probably go with Starbucks, though, just for the familiarity of it.

  15. I could cup of coffee is important every morning no matter where you are! I think I would stick with the familiar and explore a little more during happy hour! πŸ™‚ Have a great weekend!

  16. Farrah says:

    It [unfortunately] still doesn’t feel close to summer yet–it was pouring rain yesterday and it’s still been kinda cold, but I am hopeful that the weather will get the memo soon!

    I don’t actually drink coffee all that often, but I think I’ve stepped into Starbucks in Hong Kong before! πŸ˜› I don’t remember what I got though!

  17. Clarinda says:

    I remember cicadas from my Midwest days. Maybe they aren’t in Vegas? Or maybe I just don’t notice?!

    I would definitely hit up a Starbucks overseas. I have a co-worker that collects mugs, so I like to bring her back one. OK, maybe one for myself as well. πŸ˜‰
