A Travellerspoint blog

The Past 2 weeks

First off, we must apologise for keeping our loyal subscribers in suspense for almost two weeks! We're sure you missed last week's update, so to make up for it we have a bumper blog edition for you this week!

Things have been pretty busy for us over the last two weeks, so we'll start with the office functions we've had:

The Deloitte cluster leaders were here to visit BVI so Mark (managing partner) had a tapas evening at his house to welcome them. We had a great turnout from the office and the food was DELICIOUS, nothing like home-made snacks when you dont have to make them yourself!

The day after the tapas night we had a bowling function at UP's. We proved to ourselves that Tashley may be amazing at some things, but bowling certainly isn't one of them. Basically it was a competition between us to see who could get the lowest score! Oh well, we had fun and ensured that people at least had something to laugh at during the function.

After spending some time with James and Graham on their boat and seeing them wakeboard, we were keen to give it a try ourselves. Having both failed miserably at water skiing, we weren’t getting our hopes up despite all of the reassuring suggestions and tips from the boys. Off we went and they took us to a nice and flat area which is perfect for beginners. Tash was first up and after getting accustomed to the board, gave it a go and got up first try!

Ash also had some great runs and we were both so thrilled we could do it.

A few falls were had but we will definitely be going again to attempt the flips and 180s we know are in us! It also proved to be a great workout as we were stiff for days afterwards!

After wakeboarding, we went to Scrub Island for some lunch and to relax in their pool and Jacuzzi. Scrub Island basically consists of a resort and it was nice to see it and use their waterslide, pool and Jacuzzi to soothe our muscles after wakeboarding.

All in all, a great day on the boat!

This year saw the 40th anniversary of the BVI Spring Regatta.

Rumour had it that a whole host of celebs were in town but unfortunately, we did not spot any. It lasted 5 days and was really festive as lots of people were in from other islands.

Deloitte got involved by selling tickets and on the final day, we offered to bartend which was a lot of fun.

After gaining momentum and learning how to pour the infamous BVI shots, we were true professionals…except when someone came with a strange accent and they got a strawberry daiquiri instead of a rum and coke - just meant more drinks we were “forced” to consume.

It ended off with an amazing fireworks display that we did not think BVI was capable of, really great to see it.

The last week Barbara, Ash’s mom, was here to visit. She easily fitted into the relaxed lifestyle and even started getting used to our roads. We took her to Scrub Island for a delicious “Build a Burger Spectacular” with live music which was really nice.

Ash and her also took a flight to Anegada - only a 10 minute flight but was really pretty seeing all of the other islands.
