Managers who travel a lot prefer hotel rooms over couchsurfing. Why? The reason is that conversations take an effort. And they don't get paid for talking. But this is what the monetary system got us to believe: The more you work for money, the lazier you can be in your free time. You can pay a taxi instead of walking. You can eat out instead of cooking. You can watch TV in a hotel room instead of having an interesting conversation with someone who lets you sleep on his or her couch.
But that's not comfort. That's missing the point in life.
