Coffee Around The World

Let’s not lie here, I am addicted to coffee. As we plan our future travels, I started to think about all the different coffee around the world. Every country has a different method of making coffee and I found it interesting when doing research on it. Wouldn’t it be neat to try out different coffees without even leaving my own home? That is when I found Bean Box on Amazon. It is 16 gourmet coffees from the world’s top microlots. We haven’t tried it yet. We just ordered it. But we came across it when doing research when looking into it.  Coffee Around The World Argentina Café – is a shot of espresso Café en jarrito – basically a double espresso Cortado – a macchiato, or espresso cut with a little milk Café con crema – same as a cortado, but with cream instead of milk Lagrima – espresso cup filled with milk and a touch of coffee Americano – Hot water is added to a shot or two of espresso. Café con leche -half coffee half milk Capuchino – visible layers of coffee, milk, and froth, topped with cinnamon or chocolate. Austria Kleiner Bruaner and Groβer Brauner – close to what people consider ordinary coffee Melange – frothed milk and steamed coffee Milchkaffee or Café Latte – large coffee with frothed milk Einspänner – Strong black coffee with a dash of whipped cream Fiaker – coffee with a shot of Austrian rum and whipped cream Mazagran – A cold Fiaker variation Konsul – Black coffee with a small spot of cream Verlängerter – a diluted version of the Groβer Brauner Schwarzer or Mokka – Strong black coffee with lots of sugar (but not served with it) Kurzer or Espresso – espresso Türkischer – coffee boiled for a long time with sugar. Served very hot and grains still in the cup. Eiskaffee: Cold coffee with vanilla ice cream, chocolate, and whipped cream. Cappuccino – not the international version, but coffee and whipped cream. Cuba Café Cubano or cafecito – espresso mixed with sugar Cortadito – espresso topped with steamed milk Café on leche – coffee and hot milk Colado – Cuban espresso in larger portions.

Discover Dallas | The Hidden Gem – Dragon Park

Welcome to the Discover Dallas series, where we share local finds around Dallas TX. Hidden away in a little corner of Oak Lawn in Dallas TX, you will find a fantasy themed park. In 2009 Mark Mahan built Dragon Park as an extension of Select Salon Dallas. If you are passing this park on the street, or even walking by, this park looks like an over grown garden guarded by two dragon sculptures.  But, once you walk inside you feel like you have stepped into another world.

My Addiction To Yachts

Sometimes Life Happens

I few weeks ago, I purchased my original domain name, megannance.com and I have worked on it off and on getting it up and running, but I am so intertwined with Odysseys With Love that I think I am going to just keep the new site as my photography site. I was going to move over different aspects of this site to the new one, but I just don’t think that would work for me. I love Odysseys With Love and the Odysseys brand.  But you know what? Sometimes life happens and I have been very busy in other areas of life than the website, but things are starting to calm down, and I will be back here soon. With a complete new look and overhall of Odysseys With Love and so much more. So loyal readers, keep a lookout!

STOP! You Have To Read How I lost the last 14 years of Photos and Got Them Back

I have over 14 years worth of images, both personal and professionally on this drive. 30 thousand images. I have client images from when I first started my photography career on that drive. I had the “smart” idea to delete old file folders off of this drive without thinking really to check them. It was my new folder that I deleted.
