Ultimate Coffee Date — Summer Vacation Edition

Welcome to the Ultimate Coffee Date Link Up, where we imagine that we are getting together for coffee (or tea, or your favorite relaxing beverage), and share what’s going on in our lives. It’s a chance to get to know each other better and support each other in all our endeavors. Since it’s no fun to have coffee alone, make sure you leave comments on other blogs in the link up, and don’t forget to visit my co-host Deborah at Confessions Of A Mother Runner.

Drinking Coffee On Summer Vacation

As you’re reading this, I am getting ready to take my summer vacation! This is a big deal because we didn’t take a vacation last summer–we weren’t sure how long Tiger Lilly would be with us–and because we are visiting my son in Europe! 

Enjoying a parfait in Speyer, Germany

This also is a big deal because I have not planned out our itinerary, other than booking our flights and hotel rooms. I usually am a type-A planner, but for this trip I’m happy to let my son decide where we go and what we see.  That said, I’m sure I’ll be up before he is–even with jet lag–and will have to find coffee on my own.  

So, for today’s coffee date I’m going to tell you about the other times I had coffee in Europe–I don’t always go to Starbucks!

The last time I was in Brussels, we got coffee at the train station the morning we arrived. Even there they served a small piece of dark chocolate with the coffee!

The fanciest coffee service I had in Europe was at a cafe in Switzerland–again with the piece of chocolate!

When my European clients visit me, they always order a “flat white” so I tried one myself in Copenhagen. 

If we were having coffee, I’d ask if you have plans for a summer vacation. I’d also ask if you still look forward to a good cup of coffee even when it’s hot outside?

    Other than a beach trip, we usually stay home in the summer to enjoy the lake and own our back yard. I do still love hot coffee in the summer, even after a run. I hope you have a wonderful vacation!

  7. I love my coffee year round and I love to check out coffee shops when I travel! I hope you have a great time and enjoy every second of it!

    I am drooling . I love COFFEE!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I was not a coffee drinker until I had a cafe au lait in Paris during my junior year of college – instantly hooked.

    Unfortunately it never tasted as god in the US.

    I like hot coffee all year long, but I mostly drink it at work, but it’s always cold inside. LOL. I want to go to Europe now – just to get a piece of chocolate with my coffee. ๐Ÿ˜‰
