Ash Rose and Deep Ebony“No one knows for certain how much plastic, which is virtually indestructible, has accumulated in the seas. The best guess, made in 2015, was about 150 million metric tons. Assuming things remain the same, the study estimates that accumulation will become 600 million metric tons by 2040” – National Geographic.

It’s been one year since I got these two pair of shoes. They are from Vivaia, an eco – friendly footwear brand that is making an effort to create sustainable and washable shoes by recycling plastic bottles! I washed my pointed-toe flats several times during this year, and they still look like brand new. Vivaia’s machine-washable shoes (flats and sneakers) can fully withstand a cleaning cycle in the washer or a quick hand washing. I have them in two colours: Deep Ebony and Ash Rose. They are flexible and comfortable! Sustainable and washable.

Croatia is home to many beautiful and unspoiled islands. Last week I had the chance to visit and explore three of them: Rab island, Krk and Losijn. These are my photos!

I flew from Vienna to Zagreb airport. It’s only a 40 minutes flight. A driver picked me up from the airport and we drove to Rijeka. We kicked off the boat tour from Rijeka the next day.

Unfortunately not my apartment in Vienna … but what a great decor, right? And how nice I had  the chance to see it with my own eyes AND I was allowed to take some photos and share them with you on The Viennese Girl blog. Could be the deco of a small design boutique hotel, but nope..it’s a private apartment in Vienna!

Kinsterna Hotel

Kinsterna Hotel

At the end of August this summer, I was lucky enough to spend five wonderful days at Kinsterna hotel in Monemvasia. These are my photos.

Kinsterna Hotel

The Kinsterna Hotel is a Byzantine-era rural mansion, which was lovingly and superbly restored with great respect to its long history. Moreover, all crops and activities that took place in the past on the premises have been revived, so the mansion to be self-sufficient.

Kinsterna Hotel

Today, the estate produces its own wine, extra virgin olive oil and table olives, tsipouro, bread, marmalade and other fruit preserves, soap and much more.

The mansion’s long history dates back to the Byzantine era. The manor’s architectural and morphological features testify to the building’s Byzantine, Venetian and Ottoman heritage and identity. The earliest known owner was Ibrahim Bey, probably one of the local Ottoman landlords who signed the delivery of Monemvasia in 1821.

Kinsterna Hotel

The manor was lived in until the late 1970’s by the “Lady of Monemvasia” Lina Kapitsini. The main objective of its restoration was the maintenance of the original architecture using traditional building techniques, old and local natural materials.
