If you are a regular reader of the blog, you probably know that I have been vacationing in Punta del Este since I was a child. I used to stay at my father's place every new year's, but this year I decided to change things up and rented a house in Montoya with the bf and the dog. We were thinking of staying in Jose Ignacio since we both love it there, but I didn't want to be too far from my family, so staying in Montoya seemed like the best solution. I promised myself to take as much as a break from work as I could, and didn't turn on the international data plan on my blackberry on purpose so that I could take a break from getting emails all day long or being tempted to twit pictures from the beach. I did take, however, pictures of a few of the homes by the beach, and posted some of them after the jump. I absolutely love the architecture here.
