One of the most incredible things about travel is immersion into a new culture and Couchsurfing is the perfect platform to make this happen. To be a host in your own city and find hosts when you travel makes you feel less like a tourist and more like a part of the global community. New places. New friendships. New experiences.

Photographer Gabriele Galimberti invites viewers into the amazing world of Couchsurfing in his latest photo series. We have been a fan of Galimberti for quite some time. His amazing themes for travel photography, such as Children’s Favorite Toys and Grandma’s Home Cooked Meals around the world model the similarities in the human experience as well as the cultural differences that make us unique, and this series is no different.

For the past 10 years French artist Gilbert Legrand has been finding the hidden characters in everyday objects and revealing them with paint. His whimsical vision sees all sorts of household objects become things they were not: a coat hanger becomes a mouse sporting shoes; a paintbrush transforms into a teen with an attitude (and a wicked hairdo); and the blades of some scissors get amorous.
