I’m a firm believer that all our collective experiences make us who we are. Surely those that take us outside our daily existence, when our senses are heightened by the excitement of travel, must change us the most?
Even the places I visit only once – and don’t feel a yearning to return to – leave an impression. And those that worm their way deeper into my affections, such that they are in my dreams of the past and my longings for the future, have the strongest effect of all.
‘Every journey makes its own map across your heart’ captures that so perfectly. Sharon Shinn is an American novelist writing romantic fantasy and science fiction.

My hotel in Quebec City, a delightfully charming auberge in a modern style, was just a few paces from the boardwalk section of Rue des Carrières, right next to the impressive Fairmont Le Château Frontenac.
