Diversity enriches us.
How about cross-city meetup exchanges?
As a replacement or complement of RemoteRB, switching cities could be nice. My example will be Paris with Lille (1h TGV) or Lyon (2h TGV) for their proximity and because all three cities have an active community and existing friendships.
Any travel has costs: transportation, lodging, food... And days off work if you have to (there are few meetups on the weekends).
The idea would be to set up an exchange of members and speakers for a night, couchsurfing with friends or even apartment switching. Who wants to try?
