Traveling is both expensive and unpleasant: my house is more
comfortable than a bus or plane, and much cheaper. If people visit
each other with similar frequency, then this all balances out, when
someone has more time for traveling than another there are probably a
lot of visits that don't happen because of how the costs are divided.
Switching to a convention where the visitee pays traveling costs would
partly work, but then you're potentially in a situation where people
are paying costs they don't have control over. I'm not sure this
would work better than the current system. Suggestions?
