    As you are talking about a generalisation (the time when you were abroad), then you would use "little".

    When I was abroad, I had little time for amusement.

    If you were talking about a more specific/shorter period of time, it might be more appropriate to use "a little".

    Yesterday afternoon, I had a little time free so I went to the park.
