Several of you lovely readers asked to see a little more of Amsterdam – and as luck would have it, I made several ‘1 minute holiday’ videos while I was there.

This is where I was standing when I shot the ‘live your perfect life’ video that was up on the Rethink Blog a few weeks back.

So come and stand next to me as we look about. You can hear kids all excited on the boat just going under the bridge we’re on. There are birds singing and people chatting and riding past on their bicycles.

It’s all very lovely. But then Amsterdam is very lovely. So, sit down, sip your coffee and take a tiny little holiday with me.

Lots more of these to come – I’ll share the Amsterdam ones over the next few months. But next week we’re back in India, and running about in an auto rickshaw (you might know them as tuk tuks in Thailand). So come and get the feel for where I live at the moment…


This is part of the shiny new 1 minute holiday series – a new one every Friday.

Take another 1 minute holiday here:

Sunrise over the Dalai Lama’s Temple
Serene golden Buddha, the Temple at Norbulingka
Video : Sometimes life is simply good

Or check the even newer and shinier 1 minute holiday page for the whole series. Oooh!

Do let me know what you think of this new one and all the others as they unfold in the comments below.
