After spending 282 days on the road in 48 states, I encountered dozens of coffee shops. I hit plenty of Paneras and Starbuckses from coast to coast, but I visited many local coffee shops as well. The stereotypical writer in a coffee shop that I am, all this coffee shop hopping was actually one of my favorite facets of #RunningTo.
Ever since I moved to southern California, I’ve been an avid stereotypical writer in a coffee shop. Starbucks was my original standby, but then I discovered the much more intimate Panera setting. And my eyes were opened. Plus, you can’t beat the Panera rewards card.
I MEAN, THEY GIVE AWAY FOOD AND DRINKS FOR FREE. THAT’S INSANE.
