#hplphotoaday Day 23- Travel Thirst. Flashback to #Oktoberfest 2011. Whether it’s Prost-ing Paulaner in Germany, sipping vinho verde in Portugal or enjoying rum punch in Puerto Rico, I love trying the local drink. #beer #germany #herpackinglist @herpackinglist

el yunque

Sprawling over 20,000 acres, El Yunque National Forest is the only tropical rainforest in the United States.

#hplphotoaday Day 21- Take a Hike. The last hike I took was to this mountain in Cat Ba Island, #Vietnam, which I did in flip flops. Not my best plan! #herpackinglist @herpackinglist

It’s based heavily in proteins and starches with heavy Spanish and African influences. I ate so much delicious food in my time in Puerto Rico, but here’s the…

#hplphotoaday Day 19- Wildlife. On the island of #Vieques in #puertorico you’ll find more horses than cars, lazily chomping grass and taking their time to cross the road. Tough life! This was taken a few weeks ago. #herpackinglist @herpackinglist

#hplphotoaday Day 17- Packing List. Before any trip, I write down everything I might bring, adding and subtracting items. I check it when I re-pack to make sure nothing was left behind. This one was from my recent Australia and Asia trip. #herpackinglist @herpackinglist

I’m in #NYC for the week so I thought it was time for a photo outside of the HPL challenge. This #latergram was snapped at lunch on Wednesday and says, “Help Zabar’s protect this unusual work,” complete with plexiglass. Anyone know more about it? #streetart #graffiti  (at Nice Matin)
