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.

Best restaurant experience on the island?

What was your favorite song performed by Adam and/or Pier?
Answer(s):   Hmm…by Pier, “She’s Royal”.  By Adam, it's hard to say.  There were so many good ones!  Maybe “Livin’ on 'Tola Time"?  {That's a twist on the classic, Livin' on Tulsa Time}
{Pier, Adam and Michael - at Adam's house for dinner and a jam session.}

What was the strangest thing you saw on the island?
Answer:   Perhaps the multiple cows running alongside and toward our car?

What is your favorite memory of your time in the BVI?
Answer(s):   It is hard to say, but it is a tie between the fun night eating/dancing at The Last Resort and the day on the boat when we went to Jost Van Dyke.

{Our friend Jerry sang The Beatles' "Get Back" with the band with Michael on the drums.}

{Then it was time for Dance Party USA}
