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.

There's Something About Mary

If you want to know what it is, you'll have to watch this new video by the BVI Tourist Board.

I'm interested to know what people who've visited here think of this promotional video.  Is it an accurate representation of the islands?  I'm also interested to know what people who haven't been here think... Does it lure you in?  

It definitely portrays the BVI as a friendly place, but it doesn't necessarily show off the islands from the water, which is one of the most beautiful ways to see this place.  There are a few beach scenes, but I'm not sure those video sequences capture the essence of the BVI.

The video is well shot and edited.  Although, I had to watch it twice because at the end, when the voiceover lady says, "Just one of nature's little secrets you WILL discover in the British Virgin Islands."  I swear, I thought she said, "just one of nature's little secrets you WON'T discover in the British Virgin Islands."  The emphasis on the word "will" threw me off a bit!  Big difference in the meaning!  Ha!

I wish it had showed more of the beach as "nature's little secrets" but it definitely captures the friendliness of the locals, which was a huge reason why Mom and Dad decided to purchase a place in the BVI. It did sound like the narrator said "won't" discover, thanks for the warning!
