Adam Kaupert Rio De Janeiro, Brazil Travel Blog- ADAM KAUPERT INTERNATIONAL BLOGGER AND PHOTOGRAPHER 2021

Hey Gang, Adam Kaupert her checking in with you from the city ofRio De Janeiro, Brazil. Rio is the latest stop on the Adam Kaupert tour of South America which has been great so far in case you haven’t been keeping up. I initially wanted to wait to visit Rio for the Olympics but my dear friend Josef is getting married back in the states and I wouldn’t miss that for the world, so Pre Olympic Rio it is-the Adam Kaupert way!.  Perhaps it is for the best I avoid the 2016 Rio Olympics though.  After seeing some of the Olympic related building projects around the city and talking to people who live and work in Rio, the situation seems pretty dire as there is a real lack of medical resources and the hospitals here are already stretched pretty thin.  While the city seems at some sort of turning point it is still full of life and all the excitement you could want.  As usual I tried to eat at a few places to capture a taste of the city’s vibrant culinary scene and visit some cool spots around Rio including one of the most famous landmarks in all of South America, the giant statue of Christ the Redeemer at Corcovado Mountain.

Christ the Redeemer

I had seen and heard that this was amazing to see in person and after checking it out it’s no surprise it wasnamed one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.Christ the Redeemer orCristo Redentor is a massive 98 feet high Art Deco statue of Jesus Christ, which sits over 2,000 feet above sea levelon Corcovado Mountainover Guababara Bay.  This statue was so cool! It is a symbol of peace and protects the city with outstretched arms.  There was a great vibe up there and even though I didn’t stay long everyone I talked to seemed to share the good feelings. Itis easily one of South America’s must see-attractions. It stands as a symbol of peace protecting the city’s inhabitants with his open arms. The views alone are worth the trip but after a few hours I had worked up quite the appetite and was ready to eat!

Hachiko

What does Adam Kaupert do in Brazil when he’s hungry?  Japanese of course! Just kidding, kind of…I did have some great Brazilian food and plenty of Brazil’s most popular cocktail but had heard so much about the Japanese restaurant Hachiko I needed to make time for it. The Salmon was prepared expertly and they served me some of the best sashimi I’ve had anywhere in the world. After a few more caiprinhas, I was all ready for bed.

Brazil and Rio in particular, are generally a little pricier than many of the other places I’ve visited so far but definitely worth it-even if just for a few days. Portuguese is spoken here mostly rather than Spanish and this can get a little tricky if you aren’t prepared. I always go with my namesake Adam Kaupert Scam productions style of travel which is a little acronym I like to use for shoes, camera, attitude and map which, in my humble opinion, are the keys to successful travel.  Rio can be pretty expensive if you don’t plan properly but it is possible to have a great time at reasonable prices by steering clear of touristy bars and nightclubs and drinking where the locals go, which almost always makes for the best conversation as well.

Adam Kaupert Bogota, Colombia Travel Blog- ADAM KAUPERT INTERNATIONAL BLOGGER AND PHOTOGRAPHER 2021

Hi everyone, Adam Kaupert hereon my South American tour checking in this time this week from Bogota, Colombia. I have wanted to visit Colombia for quite some time and it definitely didn’t let me down, what an exciting place!“Bogota Mejor Para Todos” or “A better Bogota for all” is the motto of Colombia’s capital city.  Well, it was 100% a better Bogota for Adam Kaupert when I visited and along with my Shoes, Map Attitude and Camera-scam Adam Kaupert productions-world traveler style. The last time I visited Bogota I had just about enough time to get lost near El Dorado international airport and barely made my connecting flight.  It was cool to be able to explore the city a bit more this time around and in true Adam Kaupert style.  I ate some great Colombian street food and soaked up some of the local culture, including checking out some really unique neighborhoods.

Candelaria Neighborhood

The Candelaria neighborhood is an Adam Kaupert highly recommended place to see if you ever find yourself in Bogota. It is the oldest neighborhood in the city.  The narrow winding streets carry you through hundreds of years of history and some amazing art galleries.  I will absolutely be back, make sure to charge your camera because you’ll want to take lots of pics here. I left sooner than I would have liked to find a charger, Wi-Fi and some good food.

Bogota Street Food

http://www.sarepa.com/2015/10/24/colombian-street-food-2/

I had heardarepas are delicious and available widely in South America all prepared slightly differently depending on the region you are in though I had yet to come across any vendors of this popular South American street food. I expected a kind of cheesecake desert and that wasn’t entirely wrong. The arepas I tried were called arepas de chocolate and had been made with cheese and sweet corn and they didn’t let me down. I had several ears of corn on the cob and when my sweet tooth came back as \I was heading back to my hotel, I ran into what must’ve been the friendliest churro vendor in the whole city on his way home.  He had closed his cash drawer but was more than happy to dole me out a generous portion of cinnamon and sugar churro which I devoured straight out of the paper bag it was served in. I ate it on a bench downtown near my hotel watching the sun set making it one of my favorite memories out of my travels. Here’s a cool site if you plan on visiting Bogota anytime soon:

Adam Kaupert Santiago, Chile Travel Blog- ADAM KAUPERT INTERNATIONAL BLOGGER AND PHOTOGRAPHER 2021

Hey everybody Adam Kaupert checking in from South America. Those of you familiar with the Adam Kaupert style of travelling will be happy to hear I have recently explored Santiago, Chile. Chile has long been on my wish list of places to visit in South America so this week I am excited to present Santiago Chile the Adam Kaupert way. Eating and travelling are two of my favorite activities so I regularly scour the internet for blog posts written by like-minded adventurers whenever I travel in Santiago or whatever region I happen to find myself in.

“The City of Island Hills”

The city of Santiago is aptly nicknamed “The City of Island Hills”. Perhaps the coolest feature of Santiago’s topography is the fact that you can pretty much look up from almost anywhere in the city and see the Andes Mountains. Santiago is not only the capital of Chile but it is the country’s largest city as well.Since Santiago has such a huge variety of cool destinations and good places to eat, I used a trusted local blog recommended to me by my new friends and native Santiago residents, Janet(?) and Jose who I met at Triana Café near the center of Santiago nearby the Salvador and Providencia Avenue Subway Station.

https://www.facebook.com/CafeTriana?ref=hl)

I really lucked out because they are both employees at a great hostel in Santiago called Aji Hostel and they were also super knowledgeable and full of great tips for curious visitors like me. They noticed me looking at a (not very helpful) map of attractions I picked up at the airport and set me in the right direction. The blog they recommended was great:

They both heavily recommended a restaurant I ended up really enjoyingnamed Bocanariz:

Bocanariz was a little pricier than what I would have preferred but the ribs with potatoes were one of the best meals I’ve had in quite some time and Bocanariz is definitely going to be near the top of my Adam Kaupert’s best wine spots.  I love good wine and Bocanariz not only had the best food around, their wine list was expensive and because the servers spoke English they were able to guide me through a few pairings of delightful reds that complimented the tender ribs.  Remember that tipping 10% is customary and often a suggested amount is available on your bill.  Thanks again to Janet and Jose, I loved Bocanariz.

Centro Cultural Palacio de la Moneda

If you don’t luck out and run into the most helpful two people in all of Santiago like I did, Trip Advisor is also an awesome source e of info if you are looking for activities and are on a schedule.While most museums in Chile are closed on Mondays, luckily for me, Centro Cultural Palacio de la Moneda or The Cultural Center is open every day from 9am to 9pm.  Since there is a train station (La Moneda) nearby it was an easy decision to visit.  The exhibits at the cultural museum rotate regularly and it is a great place to come and get your cultural bearings in Santiago.

-Bip cardscan be purchased and used for both buses and subways, make sure to load enough value for what you have planned.

-The subway is an awesome way to get around Santiago but beware of rush hours in the morning and after work.  The Metro gets super busy and can be a little overwhelming.

-The Adam Kaupert way is Shoes, Camera, Attitude and Map or SCAM which is the Adam Kaupert way to travel happily and have a great time wherever I find myself.

Next time I’ll be continuing my South American adventure, talk at you soon!

Adam Kaupert Medellin, Colombia Travel Blog- ADAM KAUPERT INTERNATIONAL BLOGGER AND PHOTOGRAPHER 2021

Hey guys! Adam Kaupert here, checking in from a place that was once known as the most violent city in the world: Medellin, Colombia. Once home to the notorious Medellin drug cartel, Medellin has really changed since the days of Pablo Escobar and his goons terrorized this beautiful city and all of Colombia. With the cartels gone, Medellin has blossomed into an attractive tourist destination which has earned it a well-deserved spot on Adam Kaupert’s top 10 international destinations for 2016.  The Museo Casa de la Memoria is a great example of the city’s architectural beauty and with the real estate market here so hot right now, the gorgeous Medellin aesthetic only continues to emerge in a big way.There are so many cool and fun things to do in Medellin including the El Penon de Gutape which is about two hours from Medellin by Bus and is known simply as “The Stone”.  Downtown Medellin has some of the best food you can find anywhere in Colombia or really anywhere South America.  Here’s a blog with some interesting Medellin info:

https://betting.betfair.com/poker/tabatabai/news/medellin-colombia-100812-80.html

El Penon de Gutape

After a short bus ride from the Medellin North Terminal I paid five us dollars to climb the steps at El Penon de Gutape. Make sure to pack plenty of water if you decide to travel to El Penon de Gutape or “The Stone “because there are over 700 stairs to the top. Atlas Obscura is a great site for cool travel stuff:

http://www.atlasobscura.com/places/el-penon-de-guatape

Even though it is so high up, the view at “The Stone” is simply stunning.  I met a pair of couples from Germany who also were travel bloggers and were more than happy to let me tag along and keep pace with them up the steps.  They recommended some cool things to see in Medellin as well as a few restaurants they had visited the day before.  One of the best things about travelling is the camaraderie that develops between fellow travelers as they share in discovering the world’s treasures together…plus they shared their water with me when I reached the top.  I cannot stress enough how important it is to pack water. In classic Adam Kaupert style I broke one of my own travelling rules and didn’t bring enough to drink. To top it off, I got so excited when I reached the top and was so mesmerized by the breathtaking view of the surrounding countryside I knocked my water bottle over as I was snapping a few pictures for the Adam Kaupert travel photo album, but luckily I was in good company and my European friends generously shared some of their aqua. I grabbed a quick snack afterwards in Gutape and then headed back to Medellin to enjoy some of the best food in South America.

Chicharrónat La Gloria de Gloria

Named after the owner,Gloria Cecilia Ramirez, La Gloria de Gloria easily tops the Adam Kaupert top 5 restaurants in Medellin list. The chicharrón here is unparalleled and you get a ton of food for your money. I enjoyed some cold Colombian beers with my meal and really enjoyed the atmosphere. Even the Avocado tasted better here, I was so full by the time I left yet there were still so many things I would’ve liked to try.  I will definitely be back next time I’m in Medellin!While Gloria de Gloria does not have a website, this is a great Medellin and Colombia food blog:

Who knows where the wind will take Adam Kaupert travel blog next week, check in with me and see. See you soon!

Adam Kaupert Lima, Peru Travel Blog- ADAM KAUPERT INTERNATIONAL BLOGGER AND PHOTOGRAPHER 2021

Hey gang!I’m continuing the Adam Kaupert tour of South America and am writing from the Jorge Chavez International Airport in Callao outside of Lima about to board a flight out of Peru.  I saw some amazing things here, the Nazca Lines were cool but the weather was a bit overcast.  I enjoyed exploring the area around thePlaza de Armas in Lima as well. Anyone who knows Adam Kaupert also knows I am a huge foodie so I had to try the best ceviche you can find anywhere in the world in its home, Lima.As usual I surfed around and checked out several different blogs before visiting Lima.  There were many good ones but this one provided some cool historical context to my trip.

http://www.butterfield.com/blog/latin-america/peru/

Gastón Acurio’s Ceviche

Up until recently I had never heard or tried Ceviche.  A friend back in the states ordered it and insisted I try it, since then I couldn’t wait to sample some of Lima, Peru’s best ceviche; After all-ceviche is the national dish so what better place to put another notch in the old Adam Kaupert culinary experience belt. The ceviche I had in Lima tasted so authentic (obviously) and made me grin from ear to ear when I bit into the world famous classic ceviche atGavin Acurio’s world renowned restaurant Tanta.

http://tantaperu.com/

Nazca Lines

I had heard that the cabs in Lima were less than reputable so rather than chance it, I took a short bus ride from Lima to the Nazca Lines on the Peruvian coastal plain, which were really amazing.While most of my trip went well, I had a little “incident” with a would-be thief on the bus back from the Nazca Lines. A young woman began chatting me upon the bus ride back.She claimed to be from Rio de Janeiro, where I had been earlier in the week and seemed interested in where I had been. She showered me with questions and at first I just thought she was a curious fellow traveler making small talk, I even wrote the name of my Adam Kaupert travel blog down for her, but when I turned my head to survey the landscape passing by the bus I saw her reflection in the bus window and caught her trying to pull my wallet out of my partially unzipped bag. I simply pulled my bag away and stowed it between my legs.  She acted as if nothing had happened and, not wanting to prolong the bus ride, I did not alert the driver.  The scam artist had nearly duped me but Adam Kaupert won the day, if I don’t say so myself.  The Nazca Lines are a must visit if you are in Peru but beware of scammers and thieves.  Despite the would-be scam artist I met, I thoroughly enjoyed travelling to the Nazca Lines which is a Unesco World Heritage Site and for good reason.

Adam Kaupert, Hong Kong Travel Blog-ADAM KAUPERT INTERNATIONAL BLOGGER AND PHOTOGRAPHER 2021

Adam Kaupert here checking in from Hong Kong in China as part of my Asian Tour. Thankfully, the pollution here is much more tolerable than it was in Beijing.Hong Kong translates to Fragrant Harbor and the fragrances are only part of the draw to this once mysterious Jewel of Asia. Hong Kong is able to maintain its own identity because of the “one country, two systems” where Hong Kong maintains an identity unique from Mainland China which can be much more conservative than Hong Kong in many aspects.There are so many cool things to see and do in Hong Kong, I will definitely be back.

Tung Choi Street

One of Adam Kaupert’sfavorite spots in Hong Kong is one of the most well-known street markets in Hong Kong alongTung Choi Street or “Goldfish street” as it is affectionately referred to by tourists and locals alike. Tung Choi Street is located in Kowloon, Hong Kong. It is one of the most well-known street markets in Hong Kong. The section known as the”Ladies’ Market” or “Ladies’ Street” offerslots of women’s products like make up and combs along with much more. North of Bute Street, you will find a market dedicated to plants, animals and many kinds of lovely goldfish displaying where the market got its name. “Goldfish Street”.

https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g294217-d1993236-Reviews-Goldfish_Street_Tung_Choi_Street-Hong_Kong.html

Po Lin Monastery

If you know Adam Kaupert you know I am a fan of beauty but often times, churches and shrines can be really boring if you don’t share the convictions of those who worship there. The Po Lin Monastery, which means literally, “Precious Lotus Zen Temple”, is an exception to this particular Adam Kaupert travel rule.  It was really cool and worth the visit.  The interior of the monastery has to be seen to be believed but is well worth the short trip.  It’s kind of like the Sistine chapel of Asia if such a comparison can be made. Adam Kaupert pro tip: The Po Lin monastery is also noted for making wooden bracelets that are exclusively available for purchase by the Tian Tan Buddha statue.

Yat Lok Roast Goose Restaurant

After poring through blogs in preparation for my trip to Tokyo I settled on what would eventually become the Adam Kaupert top rated roasted goose in the entire world. The Yat Lok roast goose restaurant has a well-earned Michelin star.  Don’t be fooled by the quaint mom and pop style trappings, the food here rivals any I’ve had in the worldwideand the prices were pretty reasonable as well. Luckily my friend Charles had business in Hong Kong during my visit and we were able to link up for some roast duck.

http://www.ladyironchef.com/2015/12/yat-lok-goose-restaurant/

Yat Lok Goose restaurant offers a huge variety of delightful treats such as roasted meat, along with the usual rice and noodle dishes. The food here is made to order and you can tell where the individual care goes when you taste it.  The dumplings are easily the best I’ve had and if you are ever in Hong Kong I cannot Recommend Yat Lok enough.

After my mediocre experience in Beijing, Hong Kong was a great reprieve from the smog and bad food I found there.  I will definitely be back in Hong Kong on the next Adam Kaupert Asian tour.

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:

https://theothertour.com/top-5-blogs-about-istanbul/

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

Cipriani Istanbul has been open for nearly a century serving up some of the best Mediterranean food you can find anywhere in the world. Everything I tried was out of this world and so fresh. If you’re looking for some of the greatest, most authentic Italian food outside of Italy then take this Adam Kaupert pro tip and go straight to Cipriani Istanbul. There is plenty of seating but it would be smart to call ahead and make sure there are no special events or occasions.

AK Travel PARIS, France

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:

http://www.ontheluce.com/2012/10/23/paris-on-a-budget/

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!):

https://www.ytravelblog.com/things-to-do-in-paris-france/

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

www.clownbarparis.com

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!

Adam Kaupert Berlin, Germany Travel Blog

Did you know that former Berlin Mayor Klaus Wowereit famously once said “Berlin is poor, but sexy?” Well as the Adam Kaupert blog excursion to Berlin proved, times have changed. There are signs of money everywhere in Berlin these days, while the German city still retains its bohemian feel, the entire city has been revitalized. Berlin is truly a multicultural mecca as evidenced by the mixture of people seen on the street wherever you go here. Only about a quarter of Berliners are actually from the city and almost twenty percent are from a totally different country. Take a trip over to this superb Berlin website for more information:

https://www.justonewayticket.com/2016/09/28/best-things-to-do-in-berlin/

There are not only several million people located within the Berlin city limits but a massive amount of art history and culture. There are almost two hundred museums in Berlin alone. While Berlin is more impoverished than other Germancities with a higher unemployment rate and lower average incomes, the city is on the uptick and it’s a fun thing to witness. This Adam Kaupert travel blog approved berlin link is a great source for Berlin travel info:

Adam Kaupert immerses himself in the Berlin Nightlife

Berlin is absolutely crawling with artists and creative people doing their thing. There is an optimistic and youthful vibe in Berlin and this is why the city is such a draw for foreigners and young artists and musicians. The nightlife here is absolutely thriving and it is said over50000 people go out dancing in Berlin every weekend. Many nightclubs are conveniently located within walking distance of a train station making it easy to party until the wee hours of the morning. Here’s a terrific Berlin travel blog that is, of course, Adam Kaupert travel blog approved:

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. I visited one of these late night stores after the club with some friends I met  and found these arty stores can be like a miniature after party with post cub revelers lining up for food liquor and smokes to keep the party roaring.

Adam Kaupert books accommodations at the Hotel Zoo Berlin

The Hotel Zoo Berlin is a hip modern luxury hotel in the heart of Berlin. Booking the Adam Kaupert travel blog stay here was an easy choice thanks to its glowing reviews on other travel blogs. Of course I did my research the Adam Kaupert scam way and prepared for my Berlin trip the best way possible. If hip settings and careful attention to details is what you’re looking for than the Hotel Zoo Berlin is right up your alley. The Berlin Zoo Hotel was originally designed in the 20s but has since been renovated to reflect the growing youthful feel of Berlin and they have done a terrific job.

Did you know that Guatemala is slightly smaller than a US state? Despite its diminutive proportions The Republic of Guatemala has a little something for every kind or traveler.

I visited the Pacaya Volcano which turned out to be great. It is one of the most popular volcanoes in the area drawing visitors from all over to scale its rugged trails. If hiking is not your bag, there are options to ride horseback as well. Travelersheading to Guatemala City and the Pacaya Volcano will want to check out this cool Guatemala City travel blog:

After a long day of hiking there are hot springs nearby to help soothe aching muscles. The spa here offers an array of services. I didn’t have time to check it out but saw that all the prices are very reasonable.

Adam Kaupert books lodging at the Westin Camino Real hotel Guatemala

Guatemala City is the kind of place where most of my trip would be spent outdoors perusing street markets or hiking one of the many local volcanoes. I stayed at the Westin Camino Real hotel. In keeping with the Adam Kaupert scam style of travel (shoes camera attitude and map) I did my research and listened to followers of the Adam Kaupert travel blog who suggested the Westin Camino Real. It had all the amenities you’d expect from a high end outlet like Westin Camino Real and a great location as well.
