Cornel van Onselen
Based in South Africa
Cornel can't sit still. Whether it is travelling to a new destination, or exploring a current destination, he is always on the move.
Although he has done extensive travelling abroad by visiting around 20 countries, travelling within South Africa remains his favourite pastime. He will enjoy hiking the beautiful Otter Trail, or riding down a steep mountain gravel pass with his motorbike, just as much as quietly sitting next to a campfire in the bushveld.
He loves entertaining people, getting to know people, and providing new experiences for people.
