Pacific Grove, CA
Maggie hosted me for a few days in Pacific Grove. She was a friend of a friend who reached out by email to offer her couch. When I arrived, she wouldn’t let me leave, and we hung out together for a few days, taking time to visit the Monterey Aquarium and watch college basketball in a local bar. She was a kind, genteel and thoughtful host, and I really appreciated the chance to spend an extra day or two checking out the swanky surroundings in Monterey.
