I’m Julie, and this is my husband Michael. Thanks for dropping by our web site. We met 12 years ago in the sunny and glaringly blingy, Gold Coast of Queensland, Australia. For the last decade we’ve shared our love of Thailand with trips and memories, and now we want to share it with you. We are the faces behind Vibrant Life Thailand.

We made Vibrant Life Thailand for You!

Our web site is for anyone who is passionate about Thailand, the people, the culture, the food, the shopping….the list goes on. If you love Thailand, then you are in the right place. We dream about our next trip to Thailand. We are constantly planning what we’ll do, where we’ll stay. We never stop talking about Thailand!! Sharing our passion is important to us. We love to meet other people who enjoy swapping Thailand anecdotes and tips. Please join our email list for Vibrant Life Thailand. We will never spam you, and only ever send useful travel information.

Julie is a multifaceted, complicated but amazingly normal human being who works in a school during the daylight hours. After that’s over, Julie puts on her blogging, graphic design, marketing, travel-hungry hat and storms the internet with her musings about Thailand. Given the chance to plan a trip to Thailand, Julie enjoys the journey as much as the destination. Vibrant Life Thailand is her newest baby.

Michael is a rather uncomplicated solicitor during the day, but on weekends he’s a warrior in the home handyman arena – mowing, trimming, edging, weeding,  – you name it, he can do it! In his spare time, he’s surfing the internet for inspiration for our next trip to Thailand. Smart and professional, but ready to change hats at a moment’s notice and become the avid adventurer he’s always been underneath. Vibrant Life Thailand allows Michael to visit Thailand every day of the week!

Favourite Part of Thailand

Julie Chiang Mai for it’s  mixture of culture, art and craziness

Michael – Bangkok for the amazing street food and eclectic nature of the city.

And we both adore Phuket! There’s so many special places on the island of Phuket. Yes, there’s lots of tourists, but it has a beautiful charm, and it was the first place in Thailand we visited together. Follow us on social media and tell us your favourite place in Thailand.
