Hey there! You've found Looped!, the blogging arm of Tara Fust Design. We're here sharing an insider's look at design, stories from the field, and a look at all the things that inspire us to create!
Get the Look
Planes, trains, automobiles…I’m always inspired by a change of place. The new cultures, foods, people, things, colors, architecture, pace — I always (always, always!) return from a trip energized, inspired, full of ideas, and ready to do it all again!
Last year, my favorite husband and I had the opportunity to travel to Prague and Budapest. So much fun—the rich history, unique places, the architecture and food(!) did not disappoint. When you see these photos, I think you might agree…let’s look!
Our trip started in Prague, where we did an e-bike tour through the city. Okay, let me just stop right here and say that if you’ve never done this, put this on your “must do” list ASAP (and a big THANK YOU to DL who gave us the rec!). If you’re looking for a fun, easy way to cover lots of ground, this is it. We covered so much of the city: castles, breweries, churches, taverns, the Eiffel Tower of Prague, a park/beer garden on top of a hill that overlooked all of Prague…we also made some great new friends along the way.
Speaking of friends…
My favorite sight in Prague was the John Lennon tribute wall… I had no idea it was there but I loved it!
We actually did a river cruise on the Danube, so after a couple days on our own in Prague, we then traveled down the river, stopped at several towns along the way, and ended the trip in Budapest! (Who knew river cruises were a thing?!)
Hands down, the most impressive sight of the trip was arriving in Budapest via boat at night and seeing the castles and architecture lit up.
It was literally breathtaking. As in, my breath caught in my throat and I couldn’t tear my eyes away. Just…wow.
Aside from the design inspiration (though I know that’s why you’re here!), we found Budapest to be such a vibrant, young, cosmopolitan city. No other way to say it…it was a lot of fun…and we’d do it again in a heartbeat! (Did I mention we did another eBike tour here? Sooooo good!)
Okay, just a few more…
I could probably go on for way too long, but let’s wrap things up here. And, if you haven’t already clicked your way to planning your next trip, what are you waiting for? #letsdothis
