C.S. Lewis – Thoughts on Travel


From The Collected Letters of C.S. Lewis – Volume 1

I still feel that the real value of such a holiday is still to come — in the images and ideas which we have put down to mature in the cellarage of our brains, thence to come up with a continually improving banquet.  Already the hills are getting higher, the grass greener, the sea bluer than they really were: and, thanks to the deceptive working of happy memory, our poorest stopping places will become haunts of impossible pleasure and Epicurean repast.

This letter to his father was written after their summer motor tour along with Uncle Hamilton through the Southwestern area of England. Aug. 31st, 1921
