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.

Coming Soon!

After a six-month hiatus from both the BVI and blogging, we will be returning to the island in two weeks! I'll resume my regular blogging, but it won't just be a BVI adventure...

In October, Michael and I welcomed into the world a beautiful baby girl, Anna Drake Daniels!  We were back in the states for the birth, surrounded by family and friends in Tennessee.  Here she is!  A week late, she weighed 8 lbs 15 oz and measured 21 inches long!  

We love double names, so we are calling her "Anna Drake." If you've sailed the BVI, you may guess what inspired the middle name.  That's right, the Sir Francis Drake Channel!  We wanted to pay homage to the BVI in some way, recognizing this special time in our lives.  

While we've enjoyed our time in the states immensely, I think we are ready to return to island life (or at least the warmer temperatures!)  

So, look for some amusing posts as I blog our journey back to Tortola.  Can you imagine?  We'll be getting on an airplane with not only a three month old baby, but our dog (remember Milly?), and more than 200 lbs of luggage!  Are we insane???  

Happy New Year!

Congratulations on the new family member, shes beautiful and looks so alert. Really missed your blogs look forward to hearing your exploits.......as you are coming back to the BVI any chance of Da Tree Men reforming

To Anonymous... I soooooo wish Da Tree Men would get back together. The lead singer moved from the island of Tortola back in May and it doesn't like he'll be returning. :( It makes me sad! They could have been "Da Tree Men and a Baby" with the addition of Anna Drake!!! Look forward to getting back to the blog! Thanks for reading!

hello hello! I've recently relocated from Jamaica to the BVI, not much of a stretch there but still quite different! I'm excited to go though your archives and see a little of what you've experienced here so far.

Congrats on your little one! She's adorable! I have a munchkin too, she'll be turning two next week and I'm still trying to figure out what to do here for her with no friends of hers here.

Welcome back to the islands!
