Project Exploring Soldier

Home page


Hi my name is Charel

I used to be a soldier in the South African Military, but left to start travelling as a Dive Master. That’s the guy that takes you deep in the ocean to look at fish, something like extreme bird watching.

I’m normally a man of a few words, but when it comes to writing I really enjoy sharing my adventures with those who like a good story.

My philosophy in life is to live in such a way that I can look back in a few years from now, knowing that my day’s have been worth more than any amount of money in my bank account could have been.


If your interested in traveling or just want to read more about a traveling lifestyle, then give my travel blogs a look as they include good photo’s and video’s I took while on my travels.

My stories involve life on a Kibbutz in Israel, living in the French Alps in Europe, being a scuba diving guide in Phi Phi islands Thailand, riding dirt bikes on the Red dunes of Namibia, rediscovering my roots in The Netherlands and a Road tripping guide for Africa.

There’s still many more to come and I hope you keep following my story as I prepare to set sail.
