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

It sounds like you've got a wonderful place and full of exciting activities to do locally, and surrounded by nature ๐Ÿ˜ If you have any particular questions about hosting or your listing, feel free to start a conversation!  ๐Ÿ˜Š

 

There are Local Host Clubs so it might be worth popping there to see if there's a group near you.

Hello, my name is Rachel my home in the mountains of northern Tuscany has recently gone live on Air b and b while I have an apartment in Lucca.

Hello @Paula !! 
i love traveling, I was toured SE Asia for 6 months. I went to Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia and the Philippines. The food in Malaysia is definitely one of the things that stole my heart, it is peaceful, I love how accessible good organic food is, fresh fruits, coconut water in every corner. I grew up in Haiti so I felt right at home . I felt very safe as well. 

Hello!  I'm Columbine (I always go by my nickname - I love gardening) and I live in Vergennes, Vermont!  I'm just getting started, but there are so many reasons to visit here, from the Addison County Fair to skiing to hiking, and my place is also convenient for traveling nurses working in Burlington, Middlebury, and Ticonderoga.  Mine is a simple place for a nonsmoker who is not allergic to cats (I have one) and is not traveling with a pet.  Hoping to make some new friends!

Hello - I am in Tasmania, Australia and we have just started our accommodation in a wonderful purpose built building in our huge garden. 
We are in Woodbridge, South of Hobart and have the best views over the sea and countryside. 
I am originally from Jersey in the Channel Islands, so Tasmania suits me fine.
