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!

Caribbean Arts Festival

We enjoyed a leisurely morning stroll through the Caribbean Arts Festival today.  The weather was perfect for it.  Anna Drake enjoyed her view from the Baby Bjorn.
The festival, which was held at Trellis Bay (also the site of the Full Moon Parties) featured local artists as well as many from other islands like St. Thomas and St. Maarten.  My favorite piece was this abstract on plywood of Tortola's waterfront in Road Town.


The artist was on hand creating another work during the festival.  She doesn't use the bright, cheery colors that are typical of Caribbean art.  I think that's what I like about it...  The black, white and shades of grey work harder to tell the story.

We also enjoyed yummy lattes at D' Best Cup Coffee.  (Okay, and we also had one massive chocolate chip cookie.)  With no Starbucks on the island, this is about as close as we can get.

Hi, I have been following your blog for a little while now. My husband and I (we are from Knoxville) spent our honeymoon at St. John and have been back twice since then and love it. We recently had a baby in November and are thinking about taking a trip back in July with our daughter. I was wondering if I could get in contact with you about the logistics of having a baby in the Caribbean. If you have any recomendations about what we should pack and what we might be able to get on the island. I sort of remember the stores but last time we were there I was not really looking at "baby stuff." Any advice would be very helpful. Thanks so much, we love your blog.

My email is camgrace10@aol.com.

Thanks again,
Cameron Broome
