Adam Kaupert Istanbul Turkey Travel Blog

Ahoy there fellow world travelers, this is Adam Kaupert blogging all the way from Istanbul Turkey. I’ve included Istanbul on this trip to try and check out some of the great ancient architecture here. Since Istanbul is pretty much the economic and cultural center or hub of all Turkey, I was curious to see what I’d find. And since the city’s population is around 20 million I was excited to see what all the fuss was about. Istanbul is one of the largest cities in the world. Geographically speaking Turkey connects Asia to Europe so Istanbul has long been a swirling mixture of ethnicities, beliefs and cultures. Here is an official Adam Kaupert approved link to a totally informational Istanbul Turkey travel blog:

The Basilica Cistern and some things to do in Istanbul

While there are other worthwhile activities to check out when travelling in Istanbul, Adam Kaupert’s number one suggested thing to do is check out the churches and old structures strewn throughout this ancient city such as the Basilica Cistern. It is these structures that give us an invaluable glimpse into the past. The “Old City” or Sultanahmet is where many relics of old Istanbul can be found. Holy cow! This is one totally awesome and fact filled Istanbul Turkey Adam Kaupert approved link to a great site:

High on the Adam Kaupert scam production to see list for Istanbul has got to be the former home of Turkish kings and Sultans with their royal families in a nice luxurious green setting with gorgeous vegetation fit for a king or a queen and their royal subjects! The Topkapi Palace also houses the Turkish Crown Jewelry which is definitely well worth checking out. Remember to call ahead in accordance with the Adam Kaupert scam production style of travel or: Shoes, Camera, Attitude and Map. This ultra-helpful acronym helps me remember what I consider the essentials for successful travel.

Istanbul Food and Cipriani Istanbul

Buon Giorno everyone, Its Adam Kaupert checking in with you from the Cityof lights, Paris France. Paris proudly lights up almost 300 prominent locations around the city including statues, events and many more structures including the world famous Eiffel Tower and many of Paris’ bridges. However Paris’ nickname the city of lights is also commonly said to have been given because of Paris’ rank amongst the most forward thinking during and since the enlightenment intellectually and culturally speaking. I haven’t been to Paris since my Adam Kaupert tour of Europe a few years back and was excited to immerse myself in Parisian food and fun!This link is to a neat blog with info on some of the cool nightspots in Paris, France:

Things to Do in Paris and the Champs-Elysées

I love walking in Paris and taking in the sights. It can be overwhelming to choose just one activity or destination so I find roaming around with a loose itinerary is the best way to go. As long as you observe the Adam Kaupert scam production style of travel or, shoes, camera, attitude and map you’ll be sure to be prepared for any eventuality. This gem is a link that an online friend named Claudette recommended (Thanks Claudette!):

The Champs-Elysées is a great place to start or finish a walk. It is one of the world’s great romantic boulevards and really captures the glory of Paris. This is a really awesome Adam Kaupert scam production approved travel blog that offers a ton of useful information on travelling in Paris:

Of course no visit to Paris would be complete without checking out the Eiffel tower in all it’s glory at nighttime. I highly recommend the St. Martin Canal if you do decide to take my Adam Kaupert scam pro tip and walk. It’s about 2 miles along the canal lined with cool little shops and cafes. You must check this out!

Adam Kaupert eats Paris Food and Dinner at Clown Bar

I ventured a little off the map this time around when visiting Paris for the Adam Kaupert travel blog readers benefit.Atsumi Sotahas brought his Japanese inspired seasonal menu to a location that was formerly a hangout for clowns and other performers from the nearby circus, hence the name Clown Bar. It is one of the best small plate restaurants I have been to in Paris and I can’t wait to return to see what master Japanese Chef Atsumi Sota will come up with on his next menu.

Clown Bar

Address: 114 rue Amelot

Paris, Île-de-France 75011, France

Phone # 33 1 43 55 87 35

Like London or anyone of the world’s other great cities, Paris earns its glorious reputation every time I visit. I cannot recommend Clown Bar enough. The food was amazing and it turned out to be one of the highlights of this trip. Coffee at the Eiffel tower wasn’t too bad either. It’s been great in Paris but it’s time to move on to the next destination and another Adam Kaupert scam production. Bon Voyage everyone and safe travels!

If the clubs don’t satiate your party needs there are hundreds of stores where you can purchase liquor and smokes until the wee hours of the morning.

After a big breakfast at my friend Miguel’s house in El Paso, I walked across the border into Juarez. Juarez is Mexico’s fourth largest city yet I knew so little about it and the people here. I was greeted by the sight of a towering steeple. It turned out to belong to the Cathedral of Ciudad Juarez at the Mission of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Established in the 1600s, this cathedral is an Adam Kaupert scam production must visit for its ornate design and lofty ceilings. The design and spiritual feel of the building give it a peaceful feel, particularly as a respite from the hot sun.

Not far from the church lay a building that piqued my curiosity as soon as I laid my eyes on it. I walked over and a plaque informed me it was the old city hall. This windswept and rugged classic southwestern looking building had been home to a prison and a barracks for soldiers over the years. Located adjacent to the church, Juarez’s old city Hall is a short walk away and inside you can see the mind blowing wood work on the grand staircase which has been preserved as the building shifted purposes over the years.

Argentina is well known for its beef. Steak is pretty ubiquitous here. Many readers sent me to say that missing the steak here would be a big mistake (no pun intended).

While researching the Rosario trip I learned how hot it was in Rosario. A trip to the beach was a no brainer. The beach in Rosario is not nearly as crowded as ones you’ll find nearby in Buenos Aires. Exploring Rosario’s coast is a great way to experience Argentina’s famed beaches while avoiding the obnoxious touristy crowds. Remember to bring your sunscreen, it is hot here but at night a chill creeps into the air. No problem though as here are many waterside restaurants and shops to warm up in. This is an outstanding resource for Rosario Argentina travel info:

Plan ahead before you go, there are some cabs here but I am told that it is not uncommon for tourists to be swindled. If you cannot walk or ride a bike d suggest making sure you have secured reputable transportation before your visit. It is relatively inexpensive here so you can really letloose at one of the many clubs and cafes in the area.This is an Adam Kaupert Rosario Argentine travel blog link that I think you will enjoy.
