About me

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. 

Born in Angola to Namibian parents, I grew up in Germany and Namibia where I finished my tourism studies. 

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.
