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.

Cheers!

Off the Rock

Michael and I got off the rock this past weekend.  While it was hard to leave THIS:


It was completely worth it!  The purpose of the trip was to surprise my grandmother for her 90th birthday! She was surprised, and not just by my appearance...  Her three children, six of her seven grandchildren, and one great-grandchild all surprised her with a birthday party!  What fun! 

It was a cold weekend in Memphis, especially for me!  I think my blood has thinned after a year in the BVI  We even got some of the white stuff! 
{Can you tell I was excited?  Ha!  And yes, I realize that I look a little ridiculous with a tan in the snow!}


Huge thanks to my sister for keeping my travel plans a secret, my Aunt Karen and Uncle Max for their hospitality, Brian and Beth for allowing me to stay at their home even while they were out of town, and lastly my in-laws for mailing some winter clothes to Memphis for me!  I had nothing - no coat, no sweater, no scarf!  Ha!
