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.

Day 201: Did You Know?

The BVI is home to the smallest lizard in the world.  It's name is the Sphaerodactylus parthenopion - or the "Virgin Gorda Least Gecko" or less formally, just a "dwarf gecko." 

I'm not sure if this little guy is in fact a Spaerodactylus parthenopion, but he is tiny!!!

He's perched on a two-by-four here, so his body can't be much longer than an inch!
