Hey, I'm Tyla

Travel Guru

Age: 24

Where's home?

Originally born in Zimbabwe, I moved to The Land of Oz when I was super young.

I lived in the UK and Canada for a few years before moving back to Australia and now I live in Byron Bay.

Languages spoken:

Aussie Babbby!

Time spent in Australia:

All of my life apart from when I was on my travels : )

A little about me:

I’ve had the travel bug imprinted in me since I was a youngin. With moving around with family when I was young, attending 9 different schools growing up, it’s in my DNA to keep travelling and meeting people along the way! That being said, I am super lucky to have lived in the UK and Canada after graduating school and travelled to 22 countries (6/7 continents).

I’m always up to hang out with friends as well as heading to yoga class daily, walking around the markets in and around my area on the weekend, camping and currently learning how to ride the famous waves of the pristine beaches of Byron and surrounds!

Best moment in Australia...

Road-tripping the East Coast with mates in a campervan was one of if not the top Aussie experiences I've had.

Sunshine, Beaches and Camp Fires in the evening what can beat that HEY!

Also, an epic memory that I will never forget is the first time I stood up on a surfboard and rode the wave all the way into the beach!

Backpacking tips:

Travelling solo is unreal in Aussie/NZ – if your friends aren’t ready to travel, book your flight and head on a solo adventure (you’ll be surprised how many people are travelling solo!).

Type of traveller:

Adventure all the way.

George from RatPack travel has been an absolute delight to deal with. My husband and I are going on our first adventure in a motorhome to Queenstown Nz in April. George made the booking process stress free, he also got us a very decent discount and he answered all the questions that I had. I'm beyond happy with the experience and would highly recommend this agency the next time you want to book a motorhome for your next adventure.

Super good costumer service, Joe helped me find a Van with a very short time for my trip, he was super attentive and assertive, showing me different options, so now we have a good Van with a good price.

Ratpack worked round the clock to sort us a motorhome at very short notice. Originally working with Chris to sort something and getting it over the line with Mikey, everyone we spoke to was very friendly and helpful for sorting it out and we look forward to our trip with comfort knowing that it's all sorted. Big shout-out to Mikey who got us a real deal!

Insanely efficient. Seems like it’s too good to be true. But it’s genuinely that easy. Joe was so fast at replying and provided me with all the information I needed to choose the camper van for my road trip. He also got me a great discount (a lot more than planned) which was something I was not going to be able to get if I went directly to the camper van company. Over all a great experience- recommend to anyone looking for campervan in NZ.

Joe at RatPack Travel was super awesome to work with! We had some challenges with our dates and drop offs and Joe really worked overtime finding us a campervan that worked for us. It was fun to chat and truly an easy efficient economical experience-Thanks Joe😊
