PechaKucha Presentation

Lessons from the Road

PRESENTED ON JAN 22, 2016
IN EASTON @ VOL 3

"Experiences bring lasting happiness, especially traveling to a new place. After all, what are you going to remember 20 years from now, your new 70" flatscreen TV or that week you spent in Morocco."

As the owner of two successful pubs, it's probably safe to say that Larry Porter didn't really have the time to become a travel guide. But the lessons he learned while traveling compelled him to start Porterra Travel, so he could share the joy of travel with others. In Lesson's from the Road, from PechaKucha Night Easton Vol. 3, find out how travel changed him, and how it can change you.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Thursday February 12th, 2016.
