I pull my blue jeans on, I pull my ATT* blue jeans on … und ihr könnt das auch !

Blue Jeans – kein anderes Kleidungsstück ist so ein Dauerbrenner in der Modeszene, kein anderes so wandlungsfähig und so beliebt. War sie früher nur als Arbeitskleidung gedacht, fand sie schnell Einzug in so ziemlich jeden Kleiderschrank. Jeder von uns, auch Du, da bin ich sicher, hat mindestens eine im Schrank, die er heiss und innig liebt und mit der er eine Menge toller Erlebnisse verbindet.

Being guest at Thanasis, where souflaki got its name

Frappe – the king of Greek coffee

I wanted to publish this post about a typical Greek Coffees specialty at that very day but due to a lack of internet I have to post it now. Greece is THE land of Coffee (and I think the land of Jeeps as well, but this is another story).
When you go into any Greek café you will find on the menu – and next to the usual suspects like Coffee, Cappuccino and Latte Macchiato, a very long list of different hot and cold coffee variations. One of them is my special favourite, the Coffee Frappe. Weiterlesen

Happy National Coffee Day !!
