Vietnam. Cambodia. Laos. Thailand. My backpacking trip’s almost over, leaving Saigon in a few hours. This short trip is something I will always tell my grandkids. Very thankful to have met new friends both locals and travelers (and be hosted by awesome couchsurfers Son Le Thanh Huyen Phan Hong Tran), I have learned a lot - new discoveries, seen awe-mazing things - truly a great experience. And you, yes you that’s reading.”

About Two Girls: The Couchsurfing Story of Lucy and Doris

Five years ago Doris Fin traveled to Thailand and stayed with Lucy, a 69-year-old retired American, who opened her home and her heart to Doris three times in three months.

Lucy and I in 2008

It’s 7am, and I Lucy and I are chatting away as usual.

We’ve kept in touch ever since that first visit. On my way to India from Bali this past December, she invited me to come and visit her again in Thailand.

"Oh Doris you’re so close, just come and visit!"

So I did.

It was the first time I had ever revisited the same country and revisited a friend. This was six months ago and I’m still in Thailand and I’m still at Lucy’s.

Lucy and I today

Lucy is now 74 and has hosted over 200 Couchsurfers. She is absolutely amazing. We’ve shared life stories and eaten many meals together. We’ve spent birthdays and holidays together. We’ve gone for walks and over time have really blossomed.

I’m so grateful to her and her invitation. Thanks to Lucy I started my blog  and self published a vegan and mostly raw recipes into a book Feed Your Bliss. I’ve inspired her in the kichen and she’s inspired me to stay committed to writing and travel.

Thank you Couchsurfing for being the catalyst to many of my heart warming, potent journey connections.

The 100 Couchsurfer Project

Kevin LJ was introduced to Couchsurfing by friends Joe and Naoko in January 2012. After his first event in Chang Mai, Thailand, Kevin was hooked.

"I hosted 100 people in that first year and photographed every surfer who stayed in my studio."

"At the end of that year, I invited the friends who introduced me to Couchsurfing in the first place to be surfers number 99 and 100.”
