Lionel, 22, Bed and Breakfast Owner from South Africa
Lionel was bored with his daily routine and decided that if he was going to remain in the hospitality business, it would be to his benefit to learn more about how other cultures operate.
"I wanted to gain more experience and meet other people and [get to know] their culture,” he said.
