Freya Stark on the art of travel

“Travel does what good novelists also do to the life of everyday, placing it like a picture in its frame or a gem in its setting, so that the intrinsic qualities are made more clear. Travel does this with the very stuff that everyday life is made of, giving to it the sharp contour and meaning of art.”
–Freya Stark

My thanks to Geoff Matthews of Australia for sending this quote to me. A question, however: Does anyone know where and when it originally appeared?
