Afronaut - an African self-made traveler
Hi! I am Onesmus Shimwafeni, but please call me Nessy.
I am an AFRONAUT- an African Traveler, Writer&Poet.
I am a Creative head who likes to journey into Infinity and Beyond.
I am a Namibian and I spent my childhood in Germany.
I worked as a tourist guide for many years and got the chance to travel around Southern Africa. Two other countries I also enjoyed living in, were Shanghai, China and sunny Athens, Greece.
I am married to my wife Leila and we have a young daughter,
currently our home and base is Riga, Latvia from where we love to explore the world. My travel bag is always packed and ready.
I dare to think out of the box, and I am an adventure junkie, I enjoy challenges and pushing my limits. I am a go-getter, a trendsetter who thinks global while remain African at heart.
For me, it's not good enough to let dreams remain dreams, I am going to keep living them.
One of my life's goals is to change negative stereotypes about Africa. I see myself as a cultural Ambassador of Africa to the world.
Through my Creativity, I continue to inspire, build cultural bridges, and motivate others, no matter where.
I invite you to follow my blog and join me along my travels and explorations.
