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!

Finally! THE GRAND TOUR!

So many of you have asked for a tour of the house, so here we go!  This is the entrance to our little abode.  {The Christmas lights were still up when this photo was taken.}



When you walk in the front door, this is what you see:



The galley kitchen is off to the left, along with the guest bathroom.  I've tucked my office into the corner of the dining room, overlooking the living room.  If I'm ever stressed I just read my "Keep Calm and Carry On" print.  It's a reproduction of a piece of WWII propaganda from 1939, when England was on the verge of war with Germany.

 

Here's a view of the sunken living room...



My favorite "room" if you can call it that is the outdoor dining area.





There's so much outdoor living space.  Milly loves it!  And speak of the devil, there she is...this is the master bedroom.  Notice the curtain on the far right; the breezes can be quite strong.  Most of the time, they are really refreshing.  They make living without air conditioning more than bearable. 



We were so fortunate to find a hillside villa with a view in such a short amout of time.  Technically, Pusser's found it for us, but from what we understand, places like these are hard to come by...

That's the Sir Francis Drake Channel.



While most of the furniture was in the house, we have tried to furnish it with our own accents and make it our home for the time being.  We'd love to show it to you in person - so make your reservations!
