Happy Holidays from the Adam Kaupert travel blog coming to you from Salvador Brazil, One of Brazil’s largest cities. Salvador, Brazil was a total no-brainer as a choice when I was constructing the itinerary for this year’s Adam Kaupert tour of the world’s most populous cities. Salvador was originally the capital of a vast Portuguese colony here and traces of its rich history can still be seen everywhere here. In 2014 twelve of Brazil’s largest cities hosted the 2014 World Cup. With the crowds came sweeping improvements in the Brazilian City of Salvador. Not only were advancements made in transportation,Salvador became home to the marvelous new Itaipava Arena Fonte Nova Football stadium but no worries, if sports are not your thing then there is a good chance you can catch a festival somewhere, just listen for the rhythmic pounding of drums in the streets as Salvador is known for its grand and sometimes spontaneous street festivals. The possibilities are endless for fun activities in Salvador so you better pare down your choices before you arrive or you’ll end up walking around in circles. For some inside Salvador Brazil advice check out this terrificAdam Kaupert travel blog approved link:
From the capoeira circles that form in the parks at night to the spiritual candle ceremonies that take place throughout the city, there really is something for everyone in Salvador Brazil.
Adam Kaupert take a Barra Lighthouse Tour
I have learned to heed reader’s advice when planning my day trips for the Adam Kaupert travel blog. They are always the most informed and I am proud to be a part of a rich community of travelers. Since Salvador’s Berra lighthouse is pretty close to here I stayed it was an easy choice for a visit. This lighthouse is situated in the remains of a Portuguese colonial fort and is one of the ore popular tourist sites in Salvador but don’t worry while I definitely was not alone when I visited the crowds were totally manageable. If you’re there during a sunset you will not notice anything else anyway. The views from allSaint’s bay are absolutely incredible. Take a look at this great Salvador travel blog if you’re planning a trip here:
There’s a little museum which has some cool artifacts inside. There’s even some sunken treasure on display here. Some of the maps and nautical instruments on display really take you back to the days of forts and mighty galleons. Afterwards I’d suggest exploring the rest of this seaside gem Barra which is also super conveniently located near the middle of the city.
Adam Kaupert books a room at the luxuriousCasa do Amarelindohotel in Salvador Brazil
When the World Cup swept through Salvador in 2014 with it came a slew of new restaurants and Hotels. The cuisine here is world class and the hotels are absolutely out of this world! Deciding where to stay was unusually difficult. Often times the Adam Kaupert travel blog has apparent choices when I am travelling but Salvador has some great options that made it very difficult to decide. As usual I followed the Adam Kaupert scam style of travel or Adam Kaupert scam which is Shoes, Camera, Attitude and Map. With these guidelines at your disposal travelling will be a total pleasure. An Adam Kaupert Travel Blog reader from Salvador named Theresa recommended the Casa De Amarelindo hotel in no uncertain terms. Check out this Adam Kaupert approved Salvador Travel Blog:
The hotel is located on All Saints bay and offers some terrific views. The Casa de Amarelindo is located centrally in one of the most fun districts in Salvador. Plus, in addition to an awesome location, the Casa De Amarelindo has access to some of the most beautiful beaches in Salvador. Some of these spots are exclusive to guests of the hotel so don’t miss them if you’re lodging here.And if you’re a little more adventurous you’ll want to check out Itaparica Island which is also exclusive to hotel guests as well as Morro de São Paolo Island. After a long day exploring the city it was cool to be able to unwind poolside and then enjoy some drinks at one of the Casa’s two bars for a little cocktail action on their awesome patios. It’ll be tough to stay anywhere else if I am in Salvador again. Thanks for the heads up Theresa, and keep on reading the Adam Kaupert Travel blog.

Adam Kaupert Lodges at the Grand Hotel Vesuvio in Naples
After a long day of wandering Naples and mingling with some friendly Italian locals I was finally able to head back to my room at theGrand Hotel Vesuvio. It was getting dark and my friend Enrico had warned me to be safe and cautious at night time in Naples so I decided to check out the Grand Hotel Vesuvio’s restaurant for a quick bit before taking a swim in their indoor pool. The Grand Hotel Vesuvio came highly recommended to the Adam Kaupert travel Blog and for good reason, for over 100 years they have been offering up the same luxurious Neapolitan charm that the city is known for. Located on the seafront this hotel pays close attention to detail in the full array of amenities provided. The hotel shares a rich history as the most elegant Lodging in the area.

Hi there guys, Adam Kaupert Travel Blog reporting to you from the Wuhan Tianhe International Airport in Wuhan China. Did you know that the city of Wuhan in China actually used to be three separate cities? The three cities: Hankou, Hanyang and Wuchang combined in the 20’s to create one of China’s largest cities, Wuhan. Wuhan is a hub for various types of commerce and plays a major role in China’s interior. Wuhan retains the designation as a cultural and educational hub to this day. It has come to be known as a center for Chinese Arts and I couldn’t wait to see what was in store for me. Take a look at this great Adam Kaupert approved Wuhan China travel Blog:
After the opium wars the city was divided up and redistributed. You can still see the European influences in Wuhan amidst the more classic and traditional Chinese Styles and design that have prevailed here.
Adam Kaupert utilizes Wuhan’s excellent transportation options
Getting around Wuhan is not difficult and with a little patience you’ll be getting around just fine in no time. Wuhan has some of the most efficient public transportation in all of China and is exemplary of the country’s progress towards expansion. The city of Wuhan is one of China’s biggest railroad crossroads and serves as one of the largest rail travel hubs. Here you can catch a train to pretty much anywhere else in China. In Wuhan you can also catch an express high speed train and be at your destination in no time. I had business but if you’ve read the dam Kaupert travel blog, you know I am a huge fan of rail travel when it is time permitting. Here is a fantastic link to an official Adam Kaupert scam production travel blog with great info on Wuhan:
The buses in Wuhan are great and easy to use as well. You can get around within the city easily and there are 2 bus stations serving Wuhanthat also service many other Chinese cities. I did not take the subway but have heard this is the best way to get from point a to point b in Wuhan China.
Adam Kaupert things to do in Wuhan China
Topping the Adam Kaupert travel blog must-see list for Wuhan is the Yellow Crane Tower. From the top you can enjoy fantastic view of the city and the Yangtze River as long as the smog isn’t too thick. I was lucky enough to visit on a clear day but I’ve heard the smog can be a real issue when the temperatures rise.

Adam Kaupert stays at the Ramada Plaza Optics Valley Hotel Wuhan
Let’s just say that Wuhan is not and will not be known for its luxurious lodgings anytime soon. I booked the Adam Kaupert travel blog lodgings at the Ramada Plaza Optics Valley Hotel Wuhan. It was halfheartedly recommended by some old friends but I came to realize after some research that is was likely my best option. The Ramada Plaza Optics Valley Hotel Wuhan is as clumsily named as the service here. The basic amenities were there but not much else and I was awakened by housekeeping at 3 in the morning when they mistakenly tried to come in to clean. After clearing it up with him I received a call from the hotel manager who offered me apologies and a discount. While it isn’t the four seasons, The Ramada Plaza Optics Valley Hotel Wuhan was a decent hotel all in all.

Ola from the Adam Kaupert Barcelona travel blog! Did you know that the famed artist Picasso grew up in Barcelona, Spain? He not only was raised here but spent much of his youth in Barcelona. The city has such a rich history that it is crucial to come prepared with a plan of action. It can be easy to get swept up when you’re surrounded by hundreds of years of history.
Don’t get me wrong, Barcelona is a large city but is very walkable and many of the most popular attractions can be accessed easily by foot and are relatively close to each other. The city of Barcelona also offers bike rental which is agreat option if you want to get around efficiently. There are some great parks here too so weather permitting you can stop and soak in the sun and culture if you desire. Some of the best parks include the Park de Joan Miroand the Parc de la Ciutadella. If you have the time take a short ride to the Montjuïc Mountain. It offers some spectacular views and is never very busy I’m told. Here you can also check out some now defunct structures that are relics of the Olympic that were held in Barcelona nearly 30 years ago and are symbols of Olympic excess.
Adam Kaupert samples Barcelona’s best seafood
Spain and Barcelona in particular are known for their outstanding seafood. If you follow the Adam Kaupert travel blog regularly you know I cannot pass up some well-prepared fresh seafood. Cal Pep offers some of the best fried seafood I’ve ever eaten. I came prepared in accordance with the Adam Kaupert scam style of travel and did some research before arriving and Cal Pep in the Born is renowned for its fish.If you’re hungry for more information on Spanish Cuisine check out this top notch Barcelona travel blog:
The restaurant La Mar Salada was great as well. The fish here was grilled and, again. Some of the best I’ve had.Can Soleis one of the premier seafood destinations in Barcelona at the moment and offers fresh fish daily. Can Sole is not to be missed for travelers to Barcelona.
Adam Kaupert explores Spanish design and art in Barcelona
It sounds clichéd but Barcelona really does have a little something for everyone. Even if food is not your thing, or if you just ate then you’re probably going towant to take a walk through the streets of Barcelona. The architecture here is some of the most beautiful and elegant designing you’ll see anywhere in the world. Barcelona is known for its works by Gaudi whose unmistakable style defines the character of the city. There are Gaudi buildings strewn throughout and around Barcelona and while I did not have a chance to check them all out, I saw that there are tours available which take you through the city and outlying areas to view Gaudi designed buildings. Take a look at this Barcelona travel blog to learn more:
Another Adam Kaupert Barcelona travel blog recommendation is the gorgeous lush gardens at the official World Heritage Site Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau. Obviously you cannot forget about the great Picasso when in Spain. You can still visit a café that he hung out with accompanied by other great artists such as Salvador Dali.

I booked my room at the luxurious Mercer Hotel Barcelona. Not only was it recommended by everywhere I looked online but the Mercer Hotel Barcelona was also recommended by a slew of friends of the Adam Kaupert travel blog, thanks guys! I loved it.

Overlooking the Yarra River, the Langham hotel is ideally located in a cluster of shops and attractions. The Southbank Promenade is right outside the door.

Not many people know this but Sydney was almost named Albion but was switched at the last minute to be named after the British lord Sydney. Welcome to the Adam Kaupert Sydney Australia travel blog reporting to you from Australia’s largest city, Sydney. Home of the famed opera house which is one of the most photographed structures of all time.

Adam Kaupert pays a visit to the famed Sydney Opera House
While the Sydney harbor bridge is a marvel, its construction was a long and harrowing effort. Tens of workers perished during the project and it went 10 times over budget.

Did you know that Busan is known as Korea’s San Francisco? It has a large port and the hills and seaside setting make the parallels easy to see. I have visited Korea many times but it has always been Seoul for the Adam Kaupert travel blog tur of major Asian cities a few years back or business but I have never been to Busan.

Adam Kaupert chills out at Haeundae Beach
Busan is a little tricky to navigate for the uninitiated but a great way to get accustomed to the city is by taking a bus tour.

The tours begin not far from the main Busan Train Station. Mosey on over to this Adam Kaupert travel blog approved link for moreinfo on travelling in and navigating Busan, Korea the Adam Kaupert scam production way:
The Busan bus tour will take you all over but after checking out some views I got off at the popular Haeundae Beach. I had picked up some items from the grocery and was excited to just blend in and watch Busan folks go about their everyday business. I’ve found a nice seat on a bench in a park can be a great place to really get to know the place you are travelling in. There are some really nice hotels on the boardwalk here and at night they transform into glitzy nightspots where the young and wealthy come out to play and dance. I met some locals in a club who told me excitedly that the boardwalk club scene was rapidly expanding which is good for revelers and visitors alike. Here’s a cool Busan travel blog with more information on Busan nightlife:
Adam Kaupert book reserves a room at the Park Hyatt Busan
The Adam Kaupert travel blog has found Hyatts to be one of the most consistent of all the luxury hotel chains. My stay at the Park Hyatt Busan only reinforced this belief. The design of the hotel is super innovative and worth visiting to see it even if you’re not staying, but why come all the way and not take in all the top notch exquisite amenities and services offered at the Park Hyatt Busan? The food is great and perhaps the best part is the Lumi Spa where guests and weary travelers can receive a full range of spa treatments including body treatments and the best skincare and body products so you can really pamper yourself. The location is great as well. Staying here you find yourself in the very heart of the bustling entertainment district and the largest convention center in the city.

Busan was unexpected but I ended up learning a lot about the constantly changing culture here in my time spent at the park and carousing the bars with locals. China has seen unprecedented growth in recent years, and much more to come. Something tells me The Adam Kaupert travel Blog will be back soon. Until then, ciao for now!
