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 and @Rebecca   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”.

@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 everyone!
Thank you for welcoming me into the community. My name is Michael. I live by the Polish seaside in Koล‚obrzeg. From my Apartament Morze i Las in Mrzeลผyno it is 450 m from the beach, walking through a beautiful forest. I can't wait to support each other in our travels.
Best regards, Michael ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi @Syed169 , Welcome to the Community Center ๐ŸŒป

 

Thank you for sharing about your listing with us! Your house in Srinagar sounds wonderful, especially with its proximity to Dal Lake and the Mughal Gardens.

I would love to connect with hosts in Kinshasa and see how their experience has been.

Hi @Rebecca-Meranza0 , Welcome to the Community ๐Ÿ˜

 

Connecting with other hosts in Kinshasa sounds like a fantastic idea, however since ours is a global community, it would be a bit tricky to get in touch with area-specific Hosts.

 

However, if you have any questions related to hosting or if you'd like to share your own hosting experiences, please feel free to start a new conversation and I'm sure our Hosts from across the globe would love to engage and share their experiences with you! ๐ŸŒป 

 

For starters, would you like to share with us what inspired you to become a Host?

While living in Canada My husband and I were always entertaining friends and family now that he is retired and we have decided to spend most of our time in Jamaica,  we thought that an Airbnb could be a great idea because we would be able to meet and host different individuals and learn of other cultures.  We also need the extra income.  Thanks for asking how about you What drove you into doing Airbnb?

Hello Everyone,

This is Oviya from Canada. I am a new host and little nervous about the first time listing in airBnB. I would like to know the community and the updates then and there. Wish you all the best to everyone.

Hi @Oviya1 Welcome to the community!

 

It must be exciting entering into the hosting territory and it's completely normal to feel a bit nervous about your first listing. ๐ŸŒป

 

I'd say that you've come to the right place to get support and stay updated about Airbnb ๐Ÿ˜‰.

If you have any questions or need advice, please feel free to ask and reach out to other experienced Hosts by starting a new conversation in the Community๐Ÿ˜ . We're all here to help each other. Wishing you all the best Oviya! ๐Ÿค—
