#Travel #Uruguay #tripmaximizer Part 2 of Day 1: #Montevideo (why did I start posting out of order? Guess the sunset was the perfect excuse for 'regrouping as a family'! Earlier parts of our 'day 1' to come soon: Teatro Solis… Plaza Independencia..) πŸ€— right now we need some rest from the long travel day, which began at 4am in Brasilia, connecting thru SΓ£o Paulo and arriving at the Carrasco Int'l airport in Montevideo. The follow-on 'impromptu' city sightseeing was fun, kids loved it! 😎 #Sunset en la #Rambla overlooking the #ocean #Family #travelguide #traveltips #6dayisinUruguay #Backpack #travellight #carryonluggage #travelsmart #travelblog

Viagem em famΓ­lia! Family travel during #Carnaval2017 #tripmaximizer #LosDedos en #PlayaBrava #PuntadelEste #travel #photography #Uruguay #SouthAmerica Designed this family getaway during the Brazilian Carnival Break. Decided on family-friendly day tours, thru reading other tripadvisors' travellers. Discovered we could safely take the inter-provinces bus. Affordable, comfortable, easy! *Learned from other #tripadvisor reviewers about the best times to visit the soccer stadium and museums, as well as where to find the best steak dinners! #travelawesome @awesomeplaces2k17 @travelwithusallover @viagemeturismo #vibenaviagem #umaviagem #ig_color #travelbloggersclub #fantrip
