Fransje van Riel
After school exams in nearby Forest Row, Fransje and her family returned to the Netherlands, where she was employed as a passenger handling agent at Schiphol Airport.
In 1991, Fransje took to the air, flying around the world as cabin attendant for KLM Royal Dutch Airlines. Her travels to Kenya sparked a revival of an old-seated childhood passion for writing and photography. In 1997, Fransje handed in her notice to permanently settle in South Africa, embarking on a professional writing career.
Her written and photographic work, pertaining mainly to wildlife and travel, has been published prominently in a variety of South African publications, such as the Cape Times, Africa Geographic Magazine, Premier Magazine, Travel Ideas and Sawubona.
Fransje’s writing work also includes providing content, editing, and translations from Dutch to English for private clients.
