If you are looking for an amazing day trip to take from Buenos Aires, look no further because Colonia, Uruguay is the perfect place to go! Not only do you get to see a beautiful and picturesque city, but you also get to say that you visited another country.

After walking for a time, we decided to take a bus tour of the city so we could have an overview of it. I recommend taking the bus because it takes you to important landmarks in the city. One of the most interesting stops was when we saw the Bull Ring of Colonia. I believe it is no longer in use, but it was amazing to see the remnants of the influence of the Spanish colonization of the area.
After taking the bus tour of the city, Carly and I decided to go off on our own and return to some of the stops that we had seen earlier with the guide. We went to an open-air market, in which I bought some beautiful (and well-priced) jewelry – an amethyst necklace for my sister and a quartz necklace for myself. We also returned to the beach that we had seen earlier. Colonia is a city on the water; therefore there are many beautiful beaches to choose from. Carly and I took in the sun and enjoyed the sound of the waves. Carly even ventured into the water and walked in it, while I was not as brave and decided to take some pictures instead.

Colonia, Uruguay is a beautiful city and I enjoyed the trip very much! I hope all of you are able to see this lovely colonial town in person one day.
Until my next adventure,
