Watch "Lessons from the Road" - A PechaKucha 20x20 presentation by Porterra Travel founder Larry Porter
Hi. my name is Larry Porter, owner and operator of Porterra Travel. So far, I've traveled to over 34 countries on 5 continents. I've backpacked solo through Bulgaria, Turkey and Greece, sailed the British Virgin Islands living on a sailboat, hiked the Camino de Santiago de Compostela in northern Spain as well as stayed in five star hotels in major metropolitan cities enjoying all they have to offer. I've been to more castles, cathedrals and world class museums than I can recall. I've heard symphonies performed in the great opera houses of Europe and swam in mountain waterfalls in the Andes.
Travel is my passion and I'd love to share it with you. As much as I love exploring new places and cultures, trying new cuisines and especially the local beer, wine and liqueurs... nothing excites me more than sharing these places with others. There's nothing like walking down some winding cobblestone alleyway in another country, wandering into a little cafe... and running into someone you know from our trip! Pull up a chair, share a bottle of wine and compare notes on what you've seen and done. As enjoyable as travelling is, sharing the experience with others makes it even better.
I've been organizing group trips for over 15 years now and I've been on every one of them! The first one was a Porters' Pub trip to Ireland with mostly staff and close personal friends. We had so much fun we started doing them every year. Our trip offerings have multiplied and grown over the years simply by word of mouth and through our restaurants... Porters' Pub & Restaurant and Black & Blue in Easton, PA. So I decided to make it official and launch this website. I hope you join me for some amazing adventures!!!! Feel free to send me an email anytime.
