So as you read this, I’ll be in Thailand. I have to go and top up my Indian visa as you’re not allowed to stay more than 180 days in the country in one go on the visa I have.

That’s not normally a problem as I move about a lot, but since I got back from NYC in the summer, I’ve been beavering away on lots of new work projects and haven’t been gadding about as much as usual.

So, this isn’t really a work trip – I’ll be working on new things (like the free training for my Career Course – why not sign up and make sure you hit your goals this year? Click here to do that).

Last year I had to do the same thing, and I came to the beautiful spot in this 1 minute holiday and wrote my little heart out. Gorgeous, isn’t it? If you have to be stuck somewhere and can’t move… there are far worse places to be.

This is the Frangipani House – a typical fancy Sri Lankan villa. Is it any wonder I didn’t want to leave? What am I thinking going to a cold country?


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

Take another 1 minute holiday here:

1 minute holiday : Stand on the beach at Talalla in Sri Lanka
1 minute holiday : Baby turtles to the sea!
1 minute holiday : Eagle lazily rides thermals in Costa Rica

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.
