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.

Do you believe that everyone has a twin?  I'm not sure I believed that theory...until we moved to the BVI, that is.

Every once in a while, Michael and I will see someone who so closely resembles a friend or family member, it's uncanny.

We've even come up with a name for these people who fall into this category.  We call it a tropelganger - a tropical doppelganger.  (Get it?)

Just the other day at Nanny Cay, Michael turned to me and said, "There's Courtney's tropelganger."  And sure enough, I watched this woman as she laid out her towel, put on sunscreen, then slid her diet coke into a koozie.  I couldn't believe how similar her mannerisms were to Court's!  And I know Courtney would have loved her troppelbanger's big sunglasses and bright coral bikini.  Even the way her ponytail was positioned on her head reminded us of Courtney!

We had to snap a pic, but I refused to get up and make it obvious...

You'll just have to trust us!  Here's the real Courtney during her BVI adventure in 2010:
