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.

New Newbie

Local publishing company, aLookingGlass, has just released the second edition of BVI Newbie.  You may remember the first edition of this fantastic publication came out about a year after we had moved here...
We still found it very helpful, so we had to pick up the 2012 edition to see what new information it holds.  I caught our own little newbie reading it before falling asleep the other day...

One new feature in the 2012 publication is the pull out map in the back.  And I love this graphically driven section on what you can expect to find on the roads here:

I have come across ALL of these "vehicles" and hazards at one time or another.  Even Sir Richard Branson's controversial lemurs made the Newbie guide!

The publication also addresses something I know I get questioned about all the time - the cost of groceries!

This list is pretty accurate.  Last night Michael went to the grocery store to get a few items I forgot on our last shopping trip and sure enough the bottle of wine ($7.00) was one of the least expensive items.  It was less than the milk he bought, and cheaper than the detergent!
