Hello friends and welcome to Dear Travallure.
We are Byron and Tammy, a South African couple that has an absolute passion for storytelling, filmmaking and travel.
In 2017 we decided to kiss the ever-familiar goodbye and travel.
Byron was an underpaid screenwriting lecturer at the time and I had just graduated with my degree in film. The timing was perfect but the problem was that we had absolutely no money, in fact, less than no money!
Our solution, Thailand. We packed our bags and headed to Thailand where we ended up teaching English in a province called Trang, at the cost of losing our hearts to the most wonderful children.
We had to find a way to sustain, not only our travels, but pay off our debt and some other personal obstacles too.
All this while at the same time trying to start up our own travel production company. After all, filmmaking is our passion!
More than a year and a half has passed since we started travelling and it’s time for us to delve deeper into our passions and create.
Are we free from debt? Heck no!
Do we still have problems? Sure!
But we value our time and happiness more than anything and we will do almost anything to live a happy life.

We met while studying at AFDA, a film school in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Byron was studying Film directing and screenwriting and was in his third year while I was in my first year.
I, Tammy, auditioned for the female lead role in Byron’s graduation film and I got the part!
No, we didn’t immediately fall in love, we became close friends and would often confide in each other about our problems or other people in our lives.
We obviously did have a connection with a bit of flirting here and there.
One night while we sat talking we realized that we were a lot more alike than we originally thought.
We wanted the same things, had similar opinions about most of life… We were and are like two puzzle pieces that fit together perfectly. So, one night while talking about our problems, he kissed me and the rest is history.
We began dating on the night of Byron’s Film Premier. The 28th of November 2015. (3 Years)
We take all of our own photographs while travelling using our good old and trusty Tripod.
