I have been reading threads on this site, but I still have one question:

Is it possible to say:

I didn't like travelling ever since I came back from Paris (for example)?


Didn't implies something that has ended, in this case traveling. But ever since implies something that is still continuing. The two implications are contradictory, and so it feels awkward.

"I haven't liked traveling ever since I came back from Paris" - good.

"I didn't like traveling after I came back from Paris, but then I went to watch the eclipse in Brazil with Jane, and now I like it again." - good.
