>>> Like drinking coffee? Check out my global coffee experience…

I must admit that I am kind of a “heavy” coffee drinker, since I really love the taste and the smell of a good coffee blend. Drinking coffee is part of my daily rituals. I like drinking wines as well, but coffee is probably what I drink most in a day, apart from water. I am not really a “tea person”, as I drink it only when I am sick or cold.

Back to coffee now. I drink one or two cups of coffee in the mornings, strong and dark, and one in the afternoon. I don’t take coffee with milk that often, because I heard coffee + milk is not really a good combination and it fats that way more… And because I  can not get to taste the real coffee if it is mixed with milk.  

Coffee is good for waking up in the mornings – it increases blood sugar a bit – they say it burns fat or just substitutes eating something when hungry (and you are on a diet) – lowers the risk of diabetes – is full of antioxidants  etc.

When I was younger I was drinking different types of coffees like Cappuccino, Mocha, Latte etc. But since recent years I prefer it black, like the Turkish or Greek one,  or long espresso, Americano (espresso with added hot water), filter coffee… and always NO SUGAR added.

I must say here that I am not advertising any of the brands mentioned below in the text, just giving you examples of what tastes I like.

Turkish or Greek coffee are cooked in a specific way, in a tin jar like on the photo:

>>> Is Vienna a shopping hotspot?

I have been to Vienna, several times, mainly for one day shopping (during times of living in Budapest > it is just  two hours by car or three hours by train) or for a layover when working for Emirates airlines… Just recently I have been  for a three-day vacation and I will try to sum up  what I made out of the trip. Firstly I will try to base the story toward shopping and what you can buy & try in Vienna, as I believe it can be called a shopping hotspot. If you have other opinion do comment 🙂

Vienna Shopping hotspot

Shopping is great as it is centered around few street around the center (1st district) which are Mariahillferstrasse (near West Bahnhof ), Kärtnerstrasse (between the State Opera and Stock-im-Eisen-Platz -> U-Bahn: Karlsplatz), Graben (between Stock-im-Eisen-Platz and Kohlmarkt -> U-Bahn: Stephansplatz), Kohlmarkt (between the Graben and Michaelerplatz -> U-Bahn: Herrengasse) and Rotenturmstrasse (between Stephansplatz and Kai -> U-Bahn: Stephansplatz). You can find there everything  – from major department stores to most exclusive shops. With globalization taking place in the last few decades, shops around Europe are more or less the same.  So just a few differ from country to country and I always tend to go into these, rather than those that exist already in my home town…Or the ones that I think will have bigger variety of products.
