Welcome! Tally ho!

Our B.V.I. Adventure is designed to give our family, friends and any other interested followers a look into the life of two expatriates making their way on the island of Tortola. Tortola is the largest island in the British Virgin Islands.

So, why did we move 2,000 miles away from our home in Knoxville, Tennessee? Michael accepted a position as the director of retail and international sales for a Caribbean clothing brand.

Cheers!

Christmas Day: Pink & Green



As you can plainly see, we went with pink and green for this year's Christmas wrapping.  It was not intended.  Unfortunately, the holiday wrapping paper selection on the island leaves much to be desired.  We went to several "department stores" and "malls" {using these terms very loosely} and found nothing quite fitting for our first BVI Christmas.  So, we got creative with hot pink and some small green ornaments.

The big story of Christmas 2009 was the weather.  Overnight, while visions of sugar plums danced in our heads, hurricane force winds swirled outside.  We awoke to a loud clap of thunder and a bright white flash. Since the house is open, with only screens on the porch separating us from the elements, we saw every bolt and felt every roll of thunder.  The storm lasted for several hours, but somehow Santa's sleigh made it to Tortola!

Tonight we are headed to Marina Cay, an 8-acre island owned by Pusser's.
