We’ll be hosting a couch surfing couple next week, for two days, while they explore the biology of the surrounding environs. A couple of early-career Ph.D. biologists with a particular interest in birds, these two folks seem (electronically, at least) to be very interesting people. We look forward to meeting them and learning more about them.
They will be the first couch surfers we’ve hosted since moving to Hot Springs Village. I love the idea of couch surfing. The one experience we’ve had as guests was outstanding. The experiences we’ve had as hosts have been equally interesting and illuminating. Couch surfers tend to be people who are interested in meeting people with diverse backgrounds and diverse interests. I’m sure there are plenty whose primary interest is in saving the cost of lodging, but I suspect the proportion who are in it for the experience is far greater.
