This CouchSurfing host photo series does a beautiful job at taking the audience into the houses and lives of people from all around the globe from Senegal to Thailand.

Having hosted his fair share of travelers exploring the world in his hometown of Tuscany, Italian photographer Gabriele Galimberti's 'CouchSurfing' series captures 100 couchsurfers and their stories in this poignant host photo series that is showcased in a portrait style. With over 6 million members on CouchSurfing.com to choose from, the photographer was able to connect and capture people across geographical and cultural boundaries. The diverse images are a result of Galimberti travels to five continents in which he couchsurfed, forged lifelong friendships and truly understood the core of the CouchSurfing community -- which is founded on curiosity and wanderlust.
