Staff Picks: Our favorite summer traditions

By Jackie Dreyer

As we ease into July, we asked Glamping Hub staffers what their favorite summer traditions are. With 78 people from 17 different countries, we got a lot of fun answers that we wanted to share with you.

Maria

UX/UI Developer

"Going to music festivals around Europe!"

Caroline

Director of Business Development

"Strawberries, Pimms, and Wimbledon!!! Just kidding—glamping, of course!"

Talal

Co-Founder

"My favorite summer tradition is definitely to connect with nature in a new destination and do different activities that involve movement, like trekking, hiking, and cycling, as well as my two favorites, skateboarding and surfing."

Haitam

Business Development Intern

"Go as deep as possible in the sea in Tangier by boat and then swim for hours!"

Pablo

Product Analyst

"Music festivals or non-touristy places."

Maria C.

Financial Controller

"I'm very simple. My favorite summer tradition is going to the beach with my friends or family and spending all day swimming and rolling around in the sand. My favorite time of day is sunset—that moment when the whole world seems to stop and the sea is reflecting the pink and orange lights. For me, those days at the beach are the ones I feel most alive."

Lauren

Business Development Manager

"Barbecues!!"

Marta

Social Media Manager

"It's not very unique, but for me, the summer means the beach! There is nothing better then spending days at the beach swimming in the ocean and spending nights eating dinner, playing board games, and laughing with the people you love!"

Ross

SEO Content Writer

"The obligatory summer festival—music, mates, BBQs, and everything in between."

Inés

Growth Assistant

"Healthy food and drinks, sports, and the beach."

Alexa

Business Development Manager

"Summer in Miami is really hot, so we spend most of our time at the beach. Most locals have both mango and avocado trees in their backyards, and summer means that both are available in extreme abundance—lots of tropical meals and drinks! On weekends, we visit Key Largo or Key West, but typically spend most of our time at Miami's beautiful beaches because, let's be honest, it's Miami (and summer is actually our low season tourism-wise, so less tourists on the beaches and at the best restaurants!)."

Rocio

Operations Manager

"Celebrating my niece's birthday together with my family in Galicia."

Jessica Armstrong

PR Partnerships Manager

"Beach and BBQs."

Caitlyn

Host Specialist

"I'm from Martha's Vineyard, and a really special summer tradition is visiting the old fishing village, Menemsha, at least once a summer. You can order whole lobsters and fresh seafood at one of the fish markets and then enjoy it with some white wine at the nearby beach—all while watching one of the prettiest sunsets there is! People come from all around the world to enjoy this unique summer tradition."

P.S. You can tell we love the beach, right?
