Travel Quotation 58 – Freya Stark

     British author and explorer, Freya Stark, wrote,
            "Travel does what good novelists also do to the life of everyday, placing it like a picture in a frame or a gem in its setting, so that the intrinsic qualities are made more clear."
           This is a marvelous way of stating that travel is like a shot of adrenaline to the old routine, accentuating and highlighting our senses so that we see things in a new, more differentiated light. We are awakened to a fresh perspective and life itself becomes more meaningful.
