New to the Community Center? Introduce yourself here โ€Œ๐Ÿ‘‡

Hello everyone! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Welcome to the Community Center! ๐Ÿ‘‹  I'm @Bhumika , one of the Community Managers for our English Community Center along with my lovely team members @Quincy @Paula @Rebecca  and @Sophia and we are thrilled to have you join us.

Let's kickstart this thread with a little about us Community Managers:

@Quincy : I'm from the Netherlands ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฑ I have been on the Community Center for 6+ years, and have been an Airbnb Host myself. I love cycling๐Ÿšฒ, playing footballโšฝ, and travelling๐ŸŒ . I love how dynamic and diverse the Community Center is as we meet Hosts from all around the globe. 

@Bhumika ๐ŸŒ I was born in Gujarat, India ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ , and shifted to Toronto, Canada ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ last year! ๐Ÿ“ท I recently realized my love for photography and aesthetics. I love to capture mundane life and candid pictures. ๐ŸŒ† When I'm not working, you'll find me binge-watching thriller movies or exploring history.

@Paula : I am from Colombia ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ด and currently living in British Columbia, Canada ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ. I have a passion for Latin American culture (I love to dance ๐Ÿ’ƒ) . I've had the opportunity to visit around 20 countries ๐ŸŒŽ and plan to visit many more. In my free time, I enjoy outdoor activities, especially mountain biking ๐Ÿšฒ and hiking ๐Ÿ”.

@Sophia : Born and bred in the UK ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง but my roots are Bangladeshi ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ฉ. I love cats ๐Ÿฑ, enjoy eating crisps (also known as chips) and enjoy baking ๐Ÿช. I also love travelling โœˆ๏ธ  I have worked in Community ever since I graduated and to put it lightly, people are my passion! ๐Ÿ’–

@Rebecca : I'm from Cardiff in Wales originally but being a military child and a veterans spouse, I've travelled and lived in a lot of different places in the UK and Europe. I'm an environmentalist ๐ŸŒฟ and like to minimise my impact on the planet ๐ŸŒŽ as well as volunteering in my local community.  I love sea swimming ๐ŸŒŠ yoga on the beach ๐Ÿง˜โ€ and I'm a children's yoga instructor too! ๐Ÿ™Œ 

Now it's your turn! Tell us a bit about yourself. Where are you from? And is there something special about the location of your accommodation that you'd like to share?

Looking forward to getting to know you all!

Warm regards,

Bhumika

Hello @Crystal628, welcome to our community.

 

I had the opportunity to visit Miami Beach and Siesta Key two summers ago, and I was completely stunned by the beauty of the beaches there ๐Ÿ˜. Do you have any beach recommendations for our lovely community?

Hey Paula! I'm in the northwest part of the state in Pensacola but in this area I would recommend Pensacola Beach and Perdido Key! Beautiful no matter what time of year you come to visit 

Oh, I would love to live in Florida. Apparently the temperature is about the same as in South Africa where I live. If we decide to immigrate, Florida is no. 1 on our list !

Iโ€™m @Adam and learned about the host community on the Airbnb app.  I co-host a property  in the Hudson Valley, NY since spring of 2023 so am relatively new at this.  I live in NYC.  Iโ€™m fond of biking and hiking, exploring the small towns of upstate New York, and simply relaxing in a rural setting far away from the hustle and bustle of the Big Apple.

I am very pleased to be here and meet you all
I am from Ontario, Canada but was brought up at an early age in Castlefranco Veneto, Italy
I now live in Estepona on the Costa del Sol and have been here for the last 7 years
I have a lovely apartment on the beach and 100m from the old town centre which I love
I have let it solely on Airbnb for the last 20 months and really enjoy it.
Sometimes there is a small bump in the road but on the whole guests are fabulous 
I am very happy to be on this forum
