Now a few months have passed since my trip to Japan. I already put an album with pictures on my website, but I haven't really got around to write a story about my experience. There's so much to tell about this incredible country and I want to stay true to Japanese minimalism, by describing the country with few but hopefully well chosen words.
I was given the best birthday present ever.......... TIME to spend on my own.... in Paris.I had no obligations, I woke up whenever I wanted, I ate when I wanted and definitely no dinner preparations, those things I do as a housewife.I was free to wander around the museums and I spent several hours at the cinema, I saw some friends which was lovely and mostly I just spent time home at the most lovely place on earth..... At home the light is so amazing, just to sit by the immense verandah window, even work gets easy.
Perhaps I have finally found the perfect get-away for a long weekend away from noisy Bangkok? 3 hours drive from Bangkok to Rayong, then just hop on a boat which will take approximately 40-45 minutes to a desert island. There's only one resort and that's it!Nice white beach, lovely water and pretty bamboo huts all along the beach where you can be sheltered from the sun and heat, relax, read a book, or just contemplate the view and sip on a great juice, like my favourite: watermelon ......mmmm.
In January this year I stayed with my family at this gorgeous little guest house, colonial style, named the "French Lotus" in Unawatuna, Sri Lanka. The lovely host couple, Gaëlle and Cédric, has turned this beautiful, lovely and charming villa, in a marvellous garden, to a great little business of theirs.
