We’re not ready to relinquish our grip on summer, or our favorite frosty drinks. It’s been a Starbucks Summer.
Seems like as long as the sun is still shining there is still time to take another road trip, plan another brief escape.
All summer long, from Krakow to Barcelona, and dozens of points beyond, Starbucks pit stops were a part of my travel itinerary. There’s something so comforting in knowing there’s a cup full of ice and a familiar frosty beverage available for you, somewhere up the road. My only regrets were not playing the “What’s my Name Game” in all the countries we visited. Next time.
It was fun to see the different treats offered at different country’s Starbucks. There’s a subtle shift as you go, and the pastry choices vary. I like that there is always something familiar and something more local to sample.
We don’t want summer to be over. We are pretending we are still on vacation. Starbucks is aiding this fantasy since we also love cooling off with Starbucks beverages at home, and on local roadtrips.
This month I am sampling a variety of canned beverages that seem just perfect for tucking into a cooler or picnic basket. These will keep us quenched at the beach and beyond.
My daughter made off with this bottled White Chocolate Mocha Frappuccino poured over ice.
