    Bring in some spare USD Perfect time to visit : January
    My early 20s went away with me crashing either at my brother's or sister's place. I was about to give my brother a surprise in US when he surprised me with his summer plans with his then-girlfriend. He couldn't have left his youngest sister alone..therein started my trip here!

    Seeing the quaint sleepy fishing village,I did get to know the unwanted information: my brother is a romantic. :3 Well,I was determined to have a summer fling with myself that year.The Hillside was dotted with holiday homes facing the oceans,the greenery did amuse me. :')

    Although I was in a group,I knew I'd be able to do some solo-travel on this. On reaching the beach,which was divided into calm & not-so-calm parts,I did get an idea why the place was often called the devil's point by the Uruguayan people. The waves seemed humongous & *angry*. :3

    There wasn't much around & that was pretty special in itself. The village had that rustic touch intact & there wasn't much commercialization done.That paved the path for a perfect set of days. I'd spend hours in these shacks by the sea & read some novels.It felt peaceful. :')

    It was a pretty small village & could be travelled on foot itself. A walk along the beach did take me to some places that were amazing enough to be photographed & gave me some good vibes at the same time. I'd see a vintage car..in a rusty not-in-use-anymore condition yet b'ful.

    I'd take long walks on the beaches & sit on the rocks for a great deal of time,listen to some music,eat a burger & make sure that I was far enough for the waves to reach me. The calmness that this place had, was seeping into my heart..slowly, at it's own pace. :')

    The fishermen would come back from the sea & people would then gather around to see what all fresh fish had been brought. A market would be organized as soon as the fresh fish are in stock,the crowd would then flock to the market to get the best deals. Beautifully typical. :')

    My brother's girlfriend used to love surfing quite a lot.Every time she was off to surf,we were off to fill our bellies with some beer that we had no idea of. Every day, it would be a different beer. His girlfriend got fitter by the day & we both got lazier..:D

    I clearly remember how the dogs of the locals,mostly the shack owners,had become my best buddies on the trip! My brother,his girlfriend & I would meet in the evening but I had managed to keep the sunset part to just myself,the dogs & lots of sticks. It was fun! :')

    We three would go together to Fishermen's Cove,the main tourist strip,at night. I mean,seeing the local stuff like a local is pretty awesome but I'd never miss tourist-y stuff along with that! The local culture flourished in the area + We had some delicious seafood everyday!

    We would stay out together late into the night..that's when all the tourists used to gather & talk about their days in the country.I loved how the visitors were as chill as the place. I don't even know how she managed to that with a smile on her face throughout! :D

    I did get good at taking long walks during my holiday here. I'd walk into places..more like abandoned places that had become a drawing book for artists. I coud clearly see the devil's point from this place but this little room felt a different world in itself. :')

    Among all the scribblings,this phrase had caught my attention for some vague reason that I can't recall now. I had then googled the phrase a number of times,in order to understand it. It was the lyrics of some song where the boy talks about a bridge between him & his girl. :')

    I get annoyed when my friends ask me about the reason I like sitting alone at times. I wouldn't have found this amazing i-am-gonna-exercise-while-I-do-my-chores washing machine,had I decided to not sit alone & watch everything for a while! I had no idea that this existed.

    My favorite part of the day used to be seeing the fishermen go to work,return from the sea,thank the Gods for their safe return,park their colorful boats on the shore & get on the fresh fish market. There was so much happening during this hour in an otherwise calm village.

    As we were done with the calm & rusty beaches,we were welcomed by the age-old architecture,town square & even more beaches by the capital city of Uruguay. We spent most of our day in the old town area,seeing the historical monuments & the modern architecture..the old met the new
  • Fortaleza "General Artigas"

    We were in the capital only for a day,we were running out of time & there was so much to see. So, we just made our way to the highest mountain in the city that was an abode to an old fort that used to protect the city & gave us a delightful view of the Uruguayan Capital! :D
  • Teatro Solís

    My brother's girlfriend suggested to go to the largest theatre in Uruguay which was also the second largest in South America. To be honest,I used to not like her much before the trip but I started liking her right after. The energy was insane outside the theatre..insaaane.

    While the energy outside the theatre was insane,we were told that there was a small play going on that day. We were lucky enough to find anything at all. There is something about the musicals that attract me even when I have got no idea what they are saying moreover in Spanish.

    When we had googled "Things to do" in the city for a day,a walk along the La Rambla was no.1 We couldn't see the sunrise.Thus we were hell bent on seeing the sunset. I gave the couple their romantic sunset & had a peaceful 30mins with myself & the setting sun.Pretty,isn't it?

    Candombe Every Sunday.
    We had to tuck ourselves into bed because of the early morning travel for the following day but when got to know that there was a street dance festival right around the corner,we couldn't help but rush there! Brought in by the Africans,it had become a UNESCO cultural heritage.:D
  • Colonia del Sacramento

    UNESCO World Heritage
    After a day halt at the Capital,we were off to one of the most picturesque towns in the world. It was the oldest town in Uruguay with this gate separating the old (which was a pretty strategic location in the past) & the new part of the town.It already looked amazing!
  • Colonia del Sacramento
    Colonia del Sacramento
    Oldest Church in Uruguay. Church Matriz. UNESCO World Heritage Site.
    We were coming across a lot of places that had the tag "oldest" attached to them.The Church was as old as the town & did look like it. The vibes of the town was totally different from the ones that we had visited earlier.There was history everywhere. :')

    Visiting a local winery is like a ritual for tourists here. We had the opportunity to choose from an array of oldest,newest & best-est tags.We were also given a tour of the vineyard & some quality cheese along with the wine.

    There was a small destination wedding going on at the vineyard.. all the more reasons for me to have felt as single as possible. I have no idea how the day passed by..we were some immediate guests to the wedding & all of it became more beautiful than it already was. :')

    Collection Museum Granja Arenas
    This photo is a glimpse of the awesomeness that we saw while taking a small break on the road. It had a vast collection of black pencil graphite writings,perfume bottles,key chains and lots more.It has been recognized by the Guinness Records as well ! Coolest Museum Ever!!

    "Street of Sighs" because people used to be hung up here & left to be drowned as the waves would come & engulf them. Now,it had become the most beautiful lane in South America & the lane for my final walk of the trip with restaurants filled with good food on both my sides. :')
