This website was launched on 20 December 2014, just 3 weeks after a substantial ‘upgrade’ to the website www.couchsurfing.com, which has removed much of my original profile.
In this website you can see much of my original CS profile, with the bonus of a complete history of past guests.
I am not currently receiving couchsurfing guests.
My name is Richard Shave. I am a Christian – we are to be all things to all men (1 Cor. 9:22).
On the CS profile you can read references from over 1,200 guests (some of them are classed as Personal References), which represents a remarkable 80% response rate following a stay.
This home is a 3-storey late Victorian mid-terraced house in a quiet street off the busy Walworth Road in London SE17 near Burgess Park.
We are up to 8 friends living as a community, as we share meals and worship at the same church. There is a living room which can accommodate up to 4 guests, usually friends or relatives of the housemates.
In Februrary 2016 I was interviewed by a journalist student who wished to advertise the concept of couchsurfing. Just watch the first 3 minutes of the video below, and ignore the strange picture you see.
