Sorry Bence, "travel as a perk"? No, for me airport security, cramped
on a coach class flight and having to navigate public transport both
ways, in order to find my economy hotel has never been a perk, more of
a ruddy drawn out stressful punishment.

Probably me, I obviously have a jaded old man's perspective compared
to most unpaid volunteers in our community.
