I can't remember for sure about HH, but CoC certainly started with a journey. And 
so did PoS (not our heroine's, but visiting pilgrims, IIRC).

Lot of travelling in this hard-to-travel world, isn't there? All of these 
characters are taking a journey in more than one way, though, and these are very 
much coming-of-age stories. The journey tests and refines the characters in a way 
that can't happen if they stay in one place and mature like plants. It's more 
likely that the characters will have agency when they undertake a journey. (When 
they are forced on a journey, that's another ball of wax.)
