Just two wonderful views:
My beloved Uruguay river. Coming back from Italy, I had to arrive to Buenos Aires first, and after take a fligth to Montevideo. This picture was taken before arriving Buenos Aires, just over the opening of the river. At the right it is Colonia, Uruguay and at the left Argentina.

The Aconcagua mountain in the Andes (its located in Argentina, but very close to the border with Chile). This photo was taken during spring.

Trips... during my first 25 years of life, I only travelled twice outside Uruguay: to Córdoba (Río Cuarto) a week in february 2002, and crossing the Chuy borderline in january. Of course that both little trips were by bus.

Suddenly, I had the possibility to travel to Mexico, that later was changed by a trip to Ecuador... and just before leaving for Ecuador, I got the chance to travel to Italy for studying (and visit Canary Islands for pleasure in the same trip). When I was in Ecuador, my trip overseas was confirmed :-D

October 2006: Montevideo (MVD), Santiago de Chile (SGO), Guayaquil (GYE), Santiago de Chile (SGO), Montevideo(MVD)

December 2006 - January 2007: Montevideo (MVD), Buenos Aires (BUE), Roma (FCO), Bologna(BLQ), Milano (MXP), Madrid (MAD), Fuerteventura (FUE), Madrid (MAD), Roma (FCO), Buenos Aires-Ezeiza (BUE), Buenos Aires-Aeroparque (AEP), Carrasco (MVD).

In a three months period I had 14 fligths: over the Pacific Ocean, the Atlantic Ocean, the Mediterranean Sea, and even Africa. I crossed over the Andes and the Apenines.

Mainly, I had been over the clouds and it was incredible. I took a lot of pictures (less that I wanted).

At the end, I enjoy the trip twice, once when I visited wonderful places, and the second and more important, when I share my experience with my family. Coming back to my city, my country and met with my familiy was really great. At my return I loved to take pictures of the clouds, but from below... from my home.

Uruguay: My Country

This map shows Uruguay and his almost flat surface. As you can see, my country is in some way heart-shaped :-D

I live in Montevideo, and the first place that i travelled to was Tacuarembó. My parents were born there, and we have a lot of relatives still living there. In my childhood we travelled a lot of times there, and in every trip I met new relatives.


Recently I have been travelling a lot, but thinking a little, i had travelled in my country a lot too.
Two months ago I travelled overseas to Italy and Spain, and it was really wonderful. So, this will be my space to share some short stories from my trips.
