5 Things I like about traveling | #TravelThursday | Porty's Diary

Hi everyone!

Are you enjoying this new series? I am, to be honest!
Traveling is something I truly enjoy doing, even though I can't do it as frequently as I would like.
If you remember, some time ago, I wrote a post about the Top 5 things I dislike about traveling, because even though I like to travel there are always things I do not like about it.
So for today, I thought I would share with you the Top 5 things I like about it!

Shall we get started?

5 Things I like about traveling

1. Going somewhere new

It may have something to do with the origins of my name, but I do enjoy the feeling of going somewhere for the first time. Not knowing much about to expect, how it looks, how "it feels" to be there... Ohhh I love it!!!
Maybe in another life, I was part of the Discovery team. haha 

2. Meet new cultures

This one is directly linked to the previous point. I like to get to know how people from different countries act and do things. It fascinates me to just sit somewhere and observe how locals do their thing.

3. Try the local food & drinks

Did I ever tell you that most of my trip destinations are quite related to the food I expect to eat in those places? haha, I know it may sound weird, but I won't be going to a place where most likely I won't like the food (or drinks). 

4. Planning

I actually enjoy the whole process of planning a trip, and to be fairly honest, I think I am quite good at it. 
By now, and thanks to my immigrant status, I kind of mastered the art of finding the cheapest flights, hotel deals and so forth. 
When it comes to what to visit, I always take a little travel book with for guidance and then just let it happen. 

5. Photograph

Last but certainly not least, I love to photograph the places I visit! More and more, I find this as a great way to keep memories alive. You never know when Alzheimer decides to kick in, right? lolol
Seriously, my love for travel photography is growing and I always take my time to practice while I am on a trip; you can ask my bf... sometimes, it gets a bit on his nerves! (sorry babe!)
But in the end, once you come back home and start looking at all those photos, it's like you are back at the place!
So yeah, I snap as many photos as I can! #guilty

And these are the 5 things I like about traveling!
