ViVa! conjures up ideas of celebration and festivity. It is a Latin word used when we want to celebrate a special occasion or even commemorate an event. It is widely used in the Mediterranean, where people are naturally festive and jovial and enjoy celebrating everything! ViVa also stands for Vintage & Vacations…. these are 2 of my strongest passions in life.

Vintage is any object which is old and which has survived the test of time, often as a result of  its intrinsic qualities of design and durability.

I’d like to explore the relationship between vintage and vacations. We travel to places which have a history. We come across objects in our travels which make for the atmosphere of the place and shape the genius loci of that place.
