I just returned from a glorious Spring break trip with my family, and surprisingly my coffee dependency increased over the holiday. I had weaned myself down to one daily cup of joe, albeit a strong one, but while at my cousin's Texas home, I drank about three to four cups a day. My hosts had special beans from New Mexico and an espresso machine — a coffee junkie's dream house.
My husband's wacky theory is that without the stress and accompanying adrenaline of everyday life, it's harder to wake up and stay alert. I think more downtime just means more leisurely cups of cafe. Whether you drink coffee, black tea, or green, do you drink more when you're on vacation?
