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.

Pop Sensation from Tortola

Shawty's like a melody in my head 
That I can't keep out
Got me singin' like

Na na na na everyday
It's like my iPod stuck on replay, replay-ay-ay-ay (2x)

Okay, so you know the song, right???  {If not, click here for a quick listen!}  Well, apparently the 22 year-old pop sensation, Iyaz, is from Tortola here in the BVI!!!  His song "Replay" hit #1 on Billboard's Hot 100 which led him to Chicago for a chat on Oprah's couch in May...the ultimate definition of "success" in my book!

His album dropped in June and you can't go anywhere here locally and not hear his music.  Okay, so onto my recent discovery of his YouTube video for the song "Solo."  This video was shot here on the island and if you've visited us it is a "must-see."  There are so many places we recognize, Carrot Bay, Cane Garden Bay, etc...  The song is pretty catchy too if you don't already know it!

Iyaz is currently on tour with Justin Beiber, so he may be coming to a town near you!  Ha!
