Well. the TV & media are telling us that Autumn is here. all the stores are selling Christmas goods already. and Halloween is just around the corner….
So time to look back on a summer that was pretty good for the oldmanleslie clan. And leaves us with only 2 problems
When I run a blog that started off as ” the sneaky latte” and was supposed to give a guide where to get the best & avoid the worst. What can I do now I have had many trips to what was the BEST COFFEE SHOP IN THE WORLD in my opinion
I guess everything else will have to compare to it. Just for the record This place I mention, will respond to the ” please make me a nice cup of coffee” challenge that most places wont do , the response was to give me a peach latte so smooth that the peach is at the bottom, un mixed so I could do it just as I wanted.
And then when I asked for a drink to cool me down, not knowing that there was Iced latte available, I was so very surprised to see that out came the best vanilla iced latte I have ever had, with just the right amount of pure hand-made vanilla ice cream in it, the perfect summer drink .
So there in lies the problem, I have now had the best coffee in the world, many times, so I know its consistent, served excellently and I know everything else will be second best now.
The second problem is along the same lines. When as a family you have had the privilege of going to one of the best worlds best hotels ( acknowledged by some as the best ) and had a peek at the sort of service that other places can only aspire to. What do you do to avoid disappointment by comparison in future
Just for the record, the hotel in question for the coffee was and it was the staff in the restaurant IMPERIUM that made meal time so special and something to look forward to
My only other comment / picture as if it were needed is of what i consider to be the best hotel in the world, based on our experience as a family. the staff can’t do enough for you , there is an air of confidence in the place , and every aspect of the time we had there was perfect and without improvement
In answer to the title of the blog, simple …..work hard, save pennies and take the next generation of “oldmanLeslie’s if & when they arrive into the world ……that should give me a few years to look forward to it.
