It’s quite possible that I enjoy planning trips just as much as I love embarking on adventures. One of the best ways that I warm up on rainy mornings is sitting in Floyd & Blackies near the Catawba River in Cramerton, noshing on a sweet treat, stringing together all of the exciting details of an upcoming trip. And while, sure, I could be satisfied with a quick run through Starbucks, there are MANY places to get your sip on.  Here’s a list of some of my personal favorite coffeeshops around the Charlotte Area:
