Mid Week Quote: Freya Stark


My chosen quote this week is by Dame Freya Madeline Stark (1893-1993). Stark was a British-Italian explorer and travel writer. She wrote more than two dozen books on her travels in the Middle East and Afghanistan as well as several autobiographical works and essays.

“I have no reason to go, except that I have never been, and knowledge is better than ignorance. What better reason could there be for travelling.”

Freya Stark

Happy Reading
