This trip was magical. Expansive countryside and laid-back beaches combined with the calm and hospitable nature of the Uruguayans made for an unforgettable trip. Tannat wine, meat galore, and everyone carrying their thermos of maté. It was quite an adventure traveling most of the time sola and to many isolated places, but I met some incredible people and made great memories. It was just the medicine I was looking for as I countdown my last weeks of “freedom” before I start work again in January!
