Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

Love Hate Relationship with Starbucks

According to Moslo's Hierarchy pyramid of needs, its only natural for us to feel the urge to be safe, and reassured by our choices on a daily basis. 

I always thrive to find local coffee joints and spots, that offer "Fair Trade Coffee options" yes I only learned that a couple of years back. 

but there is this thing with Starbucks being at every corner, I have access to four Starbucks-es on a 10-minute walk radius from  building at campus! Yes Ridiculous i know.

In Boston it was so easy to access different coffee shops with fair trade authentic coffee, Jeddah my hometown is Flooding with amazing local coffee shops like Medd & Cup & couch my two favorites.

Why is it do we always go back to Starbucks? I personally do not think they make the best drinks, it is just convenience. They are there, all the time.. its always a safe option. Specially when you don't want to risk it that morning, or before an important meeting an you really need your caffeine to kick in.
