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.

Ashley and Gordon Arrive!

Our dear friends Ashley and Gordon arrived in the BVI on Friday afternoon!  You may notice that the background in this photo taken upon arrival, doesn't look like the others...

That's because Ashley and Gordon flew into St. Thomas and took the ferry over!  So, instead of picking them up at the airport, we retrieved them in Road Town! 

Some advice if you'll be traveling this way...  Make sure to find out from the boat captain on which side of the boat you'll be exiting once you arrive.  Ashley and Gordon weren't the last ones to get off of the boat, but they weren't the first either.  SO, they had to wait in a very long line as the one Customs agent on duty looked at everyone's paperwork. 

Ashley said when she got up there she couldn't believe there was only one agent and that he was flipping through the paper's classified ads as he was doing his job.  Welcome to the BVI Ash!  {We weren't that suprised when she shared that little tidbit!}  Remember to pack not only the sunscreen, but patience when traveling here!  Ha!

We have a lot of fun things to fit into their long weekend!  More posts coming soon!
