Couchsurfing by Gabriele Galimberti, an Italian photographer, is a photo series that captures his experience using this informal hospitality service while traveling for more than a year around the world. CouchSurfing is practiced by over 2 million members of the network in 230 countries worldwide. With these statistics in mind, it is no wonder that he was interested in documenting such an intimate form of traveling.

Not only does Couchsurfing by Gabriele Galimberti capture new places, it also focuses on new faces and friendships that have formed throughout the journey. "He has slept on a bed worthy of a 5-star hotel in a fairytale villa in Texas and in a room ten square meters in Sichuan, which he shared with 3 generations of a Chinese farmer family," continues his website.
