I wonder, do WSL people think there is any significant difference between WSl and " Couch Surfing by bicycle"...?
I have had some recent guests who appear to think WSL offers no more than does CS.
To me, the WSL host offers an interest in specifically bicycle travel , as distinct to ordinary travel, which CS does not offer. As there are many aspects to bicycle travel, I am always very pleased to meet a WSL contact, thinking I will have a lot in common with them ( more than with "ordinary" people), and I am very grateful for that extra level of common interest.
I am NOT a CS host, or guest, as it means little to me; but I am very enthusiastic about WSL. When I have a guest, I try to help them find another WSL host for when they resume their journey ( some guests seem not to be very good communicators, so they don't do this themselves with any enthusiasm).
Anyway, some of my recent guests seem NOT to value WSL any more than they value CS, which I find disappointing. I am tempted to tell them : just stick to CS if there is no difference, it's probably easier for all.
Anyway, I ask if there is a difference ...? or am I wrong to be concerned about this ...?
