Vienna was a game changer. This city seems to place equal amounts of value on art and functionality which is clearly illustrated when you’re taking a ride on the seamlessly efficient public transportation with casual views of some of the most breathtaking architecture in the world passing by like its no big deal. Everyone seemed stylish, progressive and happy.
On Day 6 Jeremy and I rode rented bikes all over Vienna – from one side to the other and back again. Over cappuccinos for breakfast, desserts for lunch and wine for dessert we started a conversation that hasn’t stopped since. A conversation about our next move. A conversation about doing the right thing. Exploring ideas to make the world a more beautiful and functional place. A conversation full of intention, purpose and plans for action. A conversation about putting our money where our mouth is. About how to make a world that looks and feels a little more like … Vienna.
All of this big dreaming was followed by a conversation about where we’d go next – as in, the very next day. I fully expected to be buying train tickets to Prague – but my gut led us to Budapest.
