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 has always been 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 the gold in my pocket.


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 our story as me and my girlfriend are preparing to buy our own sailing boat and set of an a three year round the world sailing journey. We both are scuba divers/ sailors and have been preparing for the last two years for this journey.
