What to see in Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay - Travelogue

Last December between Christmas and New Year I went with my family to Colonia, Uruguay.  Is about an hour from Buenos Aires going by boat. We stayed for 3 nights but is a perfect city for one day trip from Buenos Aires or one night. Here are some photos I took in our trip:

The city is super small and incredible charming, is about 300 years old and is used to be a Portuguese colony so it has still all the architecture from that time. Every street is so beautiful with the pavers and flower creepers everywhere. As well as that weather is hardly bad at this time of the year, so is always sunny and enjoyable.

In the center of the city you can see the lighthouse next to the fortress. One thing you can do if you are for one day and want to see explore everything faster is renting a golf car (they have it everywhere) but you have to go early in the morning because they run out of then really fast.

It is full of parrillas as well and cute little coffee shops. This was my first time in Colonia and I couldn't believe the beauty of the city, and that is only one hour away!! (that is what i travel to go to work everyday haha)

How to do a hanging photo frame

So as you can tell from other post, I love paper photos and this is the reason two years ago I started printing them to put in this kind of analog instagram. Today I completed the final line of photos and I decided to share the final look!

The frame is made super easy with 4 stick of wood, two of 1,20 mt and two of 65 cm. Assamble together into a big frame and I made 8 holes in each side, plus 2 more on the top so I can hang it. Them I put a string and voila!

How do I print the photos?

I always loved polaroid photos so I started printing "polaroid like photos" using this template that is made for printing 6 photos of 6,5 x 6,5 cm in a big photo of 15x21cm. That's the method I use for the photos that I took with the cellphone or the camera (which are most of the photos)

However, a year ago I (finally) bought a Fujifilm Mini Instax 8. I must confess is super fun to take photos with the Fujifilm but I barely carry the camera around and I still can't manage to used correctly, I usually end up with photos that are too dark or to exposed (looking forward to make an upgrade on this camera soon!)

 Please lets talk about this damn beautiful copper wire lights that cost less than 3usd in Aliexpress. They are so delicate and warm looking, the use two small batteries so you can put it absolutely everywhere. This was my final touch for this frame

Hope you like it! Do you usually print photos as well?
