    Horseriding

    March 29, 2018 in Uruguay ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    We went with the bus from Minas to a place called Santa Lucia. Here we went on a 2,5 hour horse ride. It has been 18 years or something like that since I last sat on a horse. It has never been something I've been interested in. It was super scary in the beginning. After I got the hang of it I could enjoy the ride and the scenery of the countryside in Uruguay. It is super flat and somehow reminds me a bit of Denmark. Probably because of the windmills. In the end my legs was quite exhausted, but it was a really lovely experience!Read more

    Minas

    March 30, 2018 in Uruguay ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Yesterday around 12 we arrived the town Minas. We checked in to a hostel and got on another short bus ride to Santa Lucia to do horse riding, which I wrote about yesterday. Today we walked to Cerro Artiga, which is a very small hill in this flat countryside. It was a short and nice walk. After that we walked around a bit in the town and had lunch in the Plaza Independencia. Minas is a charming little place, and I could easily have spend some more days checking out the areas around the town.

    We stayed in hostel Minuao, and the hosts there was very lovely and helpful!
