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.

Here is the ice cream menu at the Nutty Banana at Nanny Cay...

What's the most bizarre thing you saw or experienced on the island?
Answer: The huge iguana on the roof of the restaurant in St. John while eating lunch certainly got my attention!

Another bizarre thing that we saw was the dog at The Last Resort.  He was inside the restaurant while we were eating and then jumped onto the bow of our ferry boat on our return from The Last Resort.
