…. I collect Starbucks mugs wherever I go and I find a Starbucks.


So far I have 13 from: Madrid, London, Qingdao, Beijing, Bangkok, Chang Mai, Chicago, New York, Northern Ireland, Zurich, Frankrfurt, Copenhagen and Kuala Lumpur. Still missing Washington, Paris, Nottingham and about 6 others that have been sold out at my visit. Hoping to catch one in Moscow in December and from Stockholm when they open at Arlanda early next year!

Going west yet again

Finally time for an update of the blog again. This time from the French Riviera where I am spending one week of well needed holiday before heading back to the mayhem of Arlanda Airport on the 29th. While travelling, my desire to travel more tends to get stronger and the next journey planned is to Washington DC in August to celebrate the 70th birthday of my father. The trip will include the usual sightseeing as well as a visit to the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum(s).

Thanks to good bargain hunting we have managed to find discounts on travel, car rental and lodging of close to 6.000SEK for both of us.

More updates about this trip and other events are to come.

This was my Christmas gift from Anders and his family and for someone like me who loves to travel, this was the ultimate gift. I have gone through it from cover to cover and realzied I have approximately 780 places left to visit before I can move on 😉 There is a hope that I will be visiting many of these places soon!
