I think we are super blessed in our travels to meet all sorts of interesting people from all walks of life. I think we are equally blessed that our lifestyle does not prevents us from being so busy doing life that we don’t have the time to get to know our fellow stranger. Our lifestyle gives us the time to be curious about others and learn from everyone who enters our sphere.

Matt has the entire spectrum of Mother Nature’s mysteries covered. His job is flying the skies in this tiny plane as an Indonesian bush pilot. His passion is diving the seas to realize just how tiny he is and how vast and remarkable the underwater world is.

It is with great honor that I present you one fascinating interview of one international guy who lives a very unconventional life.

If you enjoyed this interview,  we’ve done really great ones with fascinating people across the globe.

You may particularly enjoy:

I Hate Missionaries– Sihanoukville, Cambodia

Raffy our Teacher– Moalboal, Philippines

The reason we stayed in the Philippines for two and a half month was solely because of Savedra Dive Center. They are responsible for Gabi becoming Advanced Open Water Certified, for Kobi earning his Dive Master, for our kids dancing underwater with sea turtles and for Kobi and I getting lost in waterfalls and avalanches of sardines. Because of Savedra Dive Center we laughed tons, Kobi drank more than he usually does, and we made and our kids made friends who will remain in our hearts forever. Should you plan a trip to Philippines and have any desire to dive, with all of our hearts, we recommend diving with a professional super-fun staff and high quality equipment at Savedra. We felt safe enough to put our kids underwater with Savedra and that just about says it all. And if you go, tell Lee that Gabi is always, always, always right and that he sucks! On the other hand, tell Hermann that he is a God. :-)
